-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 I'm working with a number of people in my department to develop a single workflow that will be used for a course we teach. So far I've found that "sharing" a workflow with individual users/roles isn't very optimal. They email me with changes they'd like to happen, or they create their own copies which immediately branch off and don't help everyone else who might need them.
As such, I'd like to propose changes and would like community feedback on my proposed changes so when I create the trello card/maybe try my hand at implementing them, they aren't completely specific to my use case. In my mind, the 'optimal' version of managing workflows would be something along the following lines: Top priorities: - - workflows can be shared as "write" or "read only" with multiple users/roles. - This would allow there to be a single copy of a workflow in cases where multiple people might make changes to a single workflow - For "read only", this allows the previous/traditional model of sharing a workflow and the receiver being able to run it as is, or to copy and modify it. Note: For my case at least, realtime multiple person editing is not needed. If a banner shows up which reads "someone started editing before you, either ask them to save + leave or save as a copy" would work in my case. Wishlist features: - - workflows are treated as VCS repositories - Note that full merge/branching probably not really necessary for this case (that would be really nice, but probably too much of a nightmare to code...) - - You can see previous iterations of workflows. - - Workflows can be "owned" by either a user or a role - users could create a workflow and transfer ownership to a role - role owned workflows are delete-able (or maybe require some X% of users in that role to confirmation deletion?) - This would sort of work like a group owned VCS repository, where multiple users can create workflows of interest to a group of people (role) and have them, by default, be available. Anyone have input on this proposal?
