I am planning to use Omeka as the basis for a digital edition and one of the things that I want to be able to do is keep track of the status of each item as it goes through a number of steps.
So, for example, I'd like to add a field called
Transcription status that had 5 possible choices:
No transcription needed
Same with Metadata status:
This would not be something shown in the public view, but a document control system used in house to highlight the next steps needed on an item, and when all steps are Finalized, to select items to be set to public.
I think it would also be useful to have a note field for internal comments on an item.
My guess is this might take the form of a plugin, for administering digital archives, but is there any workaround while we are still in design phase? Thanks!
