Comment DEV Team[edit]

  • Natasa: maybe we can rework this use case as at one time there can be only one task in state "processing" for an item. Again, workflow dependent, but probably view the item "position" in the workflow would be better i.e. not limit to state "processing". --Natasa 12:27, 22 January 2008 (CET)

However we name the use case...the functionality should provide to a user to see, "where" in the workflow loop the item is currently...so it is indeed the position in the workflow. Agree to rework for future release. --Ulla 17:25, 1 February 2008 (CET)

UC_PM_BD_14 Moderator Workspace[edit]

Scenario[edit]

As we currently don't have a workflow engine, we decided to have a so called "moderator workspace" for now.

In the moderator workspace the moderator sees all items, which have been submitted in the collection(s) where s/he is moderator. Only the moderator can release items after s/he has checked them.

Specification[edit]

Status: implemented

Schedule: R3.5

Pre-conditions[edit]

  • Extended publication and modification workflow (e.g. depositor can only submit an item when s/he creates it)
  • the following is only true for users, which have only moderator privileges (if they also have depositor rights, they have two workspaces a depositor one and a moderator one)

Moderator Workspace[edit]

  • moderator can see all items, which s/he has privilege as moderator
  • the default sorting is descending by date of creation/last change of the item, so that the newest entry is listed first

Send back for re-work[edit]

See: Func. Spec. QA.

Prototype[edit]

Additional information[edit]

File visibility[edit]

The possibility of downloading a file depends on

  • the access level set to a file
  • the organisational unit a user is assigned to
  • the status of the item. Files attached to items in status <withdrawn>, cannot be downloaded.

Files with the visibility

  • “Private” can be downloaded by the owner,
  • “Organizational unit” can be downloaded by any user who is member of any of the organizational units the file is visible by or their subunits,
  • “Public” can be downloaded by all users of the system including the “anonymous user”.

See PubMan File Properties for more information.

HTML Prototype Discussion[edit]

We need to distinguish between list and page more clearly. UI Spec: 'list of items' means all records retrieved. A page means all items displayed.
Sorry, but I don't get your point. Is this a reminder or do you feel the need, that something in the UC has to be changed, which I personally would not suggest? --Nicole 09:35, 9 January 2008 (CET)
It is a reminder, see example below Rupert 16:00, 24 January 2008 (CET)
The system displays the first page of the item list ... Rupert

Seems to be rather terminology problem: functionality is clear, I think. Depending on the number of items retrieved, and depending on the default hits per page given, the system displays the first page, with a specific number of items. Important: total number of items should be clear to user.--Ulla 10:59, 1 February 2008 (CET)

Sort order, page and list: Sort is not performed because the user does not find an item in the current displayed list/page. Usually people sort all items with the intention to better find items with the new sort order. If we say 'sort list', the current page is useless and the system starts on the first page of the result.
Please specify your comment. I don't get the point. Does this mean it is not possible to realize this point of the UC? --Nicole 09:35, 9 January 2008 (CET)
Could be more precise: If the list spans more than one page, the system displays the first page of the selected sorting order. Rupert

Comment for Rupert: Alternatively, the option to create item from template would make sense in the easy submission (fetch Metadata scenario), by providing eSciDoc Id.--Ulla 17:10, 26 February 2008 (CET)

Needs clarification from Usability aspect/user expectations. See remarks below: Please clarify how this should work exactly: Should there only be links for next/previous or should there be links for first/last for faster navigation, too? What should be displayed when the user views an item and then chooses a revision or a release of this item? Then one can say he left the item list he originally wanted to navigate through. What should happen then? Should the system provide these previous/next links or not? If yes, should the system simply navigate to the previous/next item in the list?--Tschraut 15:55, 11 February 2008 (CET)

Tobias: According to view relaese history: Should the versions shown in the list be accessible (should it be able to view them in the view item version page to get a closer look on them)?--Tschraut 15:10, 30 January 2008 (CET)

Depends on final Gui design for listing released versions and listing revisions - how much information about the released version/revision is already displayed in the "overview"? If needed, user needs additional link to view more information on a released version/revision (additional click should be avoided to myunderstadnding)--Ulla 16:14, 26 February 2008 (CET)

Comment Rupert: I would agree to have a task list which does not add additional management efforts for tasks. So maybe one extension point would be enough and - unless we face the situation were hundreds of task must be handled - I would keep the sorting out for now and keep the list simple. If we should go for work flows I would suggest to start as simple as possible.
To be discussed with Natasa and Ulla. --Nicole 11:22, 9 January 2008 (CET)

Not scheduled for R3;-)...the remarks are all valid and have to be considered for workspace concept.--Ulla 17:20, 1 February 2008 (CET)

Nicole pls. can you rename this to 'View Versions'. Item versions are what users really get. The release history is an intellectual outcome - more abstract.Rupert 16:02, 6 December 2007 (CET)This UC can't be called "view versions", because not only released items are item versions. Also pending and submitted items are/have versions. This UC is meant for viewing released versions of items only, because this is what an external user can see, where as UC_PM_BD_06 view item event log (where all versions of an item can be seen) can be only seen by certain users. --Nicole 11:17, 9 January 2008 (CET)

I stumbled upon the word 'history' View released Versions would be fine, too. Rupert 16:14, 24 January 2008 (CET)

Renaming the use case is not necessary to my understanding. Definition of labels is another issue...iam fine with label "view released versions"--Ulla 17:02, 1 February 2008 (CET)

Zur Release History[edit]

Nicole: Wolltest du hier nicht noch spezifizieren, dass wenn man auf den Titel/die Version klickt, sich ein neues Fenster öffnet mit der "view item version" ohne extension points?

Nicole: Hier bitte auch die short view noch ergänzen

Zu revisions[edit]

Nicole: Wolltest du hier nicht noch spezifizieren, dass wenn man auf den Titel/die Version klickt, sich ein neues Fenster öffnet mit der "view item version" ohne extension points?
