Exactly! And there’s the problem
I’m working with faculty who want their students to create exhibits as part of their coursework since it is a such a wonderful way of working and communicating with the community (example, we’re launching this tomorrow night: https://omekas.library.uvic.ca/s/memory/). Roughly, one course generally translates into one exhibit. Each student becomes responsible for their “items” and “pages” as part of that specific exhibit and we do a big launch at the end of the term.
Although the current settings allow me to keep students from one course out of the exhibit of a different course, it is a bit of a liability for me at the exhibit level in that any student could potentially delete the work of any other student in the same exhibit–or, in a recent case, accidentally delete the home page–and since there’s no trash can, PANIC!
Ideally, we’d be able to have a student “creator” role who could manage their own work but not affect the work of anyone else at the exhibit level. This would also be useful for Work Study students who might be helping a library build out collections and/or specific exhibits–the library might want the to be creating things but not allow them to have the power to delete previous work. Since there is no way to recover something once it has been deleted (i.e. a trashcan), this is an important feature for those working with many collaborators. Is there any role like this on the roadmap?
Also: I might be able to devote some developer time to creating new role permissions at the exhibit level if folks think it might be useful to the community.
