Creating Editorial Statuses Follow
The Editorial status area of your Stison system enables you to create publisher-specific statuses for use in your schedules. The concept is to provide more information about the state of the product at a glance, and often relates to the editorial processes that occur before a book is confirmed for publication. Setting of statuses is currently done within the Production Module under Production Admin. (This is a throw back to the initial setup of this area of the system).
By selecting Prod. Status from the main Production Admin menu, you will be taken to a screen where your Statuses will be displayed in list form as you add them. Below is an image of this part of the system with several example production statuses. When you are beginning to populate this area, it will be empty at first.
You can create as many statuses as you need by repeating the instructions below.
1) Click on Create New first.
2) Give a name to your status.
3) Add the label to Production and/or Editorial (this enables a status label to be used in both areas).
4) Allocate a colour for the status, which will appear as below:
5) Click Create to save it.
The status will now be visible in the area(s) of the system you indicated above.
If you want to archive a status, tick the Archived box. Though archiving the item does not remove it from your system, it ensures the item is not available to select within the drop-down menus.
Clicking on Show Archived in list view will enable you to see your archived statuses.
To remove a status from the system, click on the box beside the name within the main Production Status page and then on Remove selected:
