Hi Tom. Happy to contribute!
Just to recap, CJRU has set up the music logging based on Arbie’s suggestions, so we have used the custom fields to specify details we require for our reporting. Most of the required details we have to add are adjustable after being logged as checkboxes, so can be adjusted with the click of a button and are, therefore, really quick to look through and make rapid edits to. However, there is one custom field we need to use that is ‘select’ from a list. By having this pulldown menus accessible at the click of a button too, would save our users from having to click edit and reload the page again for each item in the playlist.
Here are a couple screenshots to help understand. Note that I have the Release custom field as required for anything being added, meaning it is necessary for any items being added.
Again, we’re using the automatic-ID system and most of the other requirements are available in the playlist to be adjusted as necessary (i.e. the Hit, N, Instrumental, CanCon fields on each item). However, the Category field is only visible once it has been edited. Otherwise, we need to click edit to add it for every item.
As mentioned, I suspect it will be regularly overlooked and forgotten, meaning more work for me and more nagging for our hosts to go back to add the field with missing info…
