Feature Request: Redirects on Future Status


(Lewis) #1

Hi. Can we have a redirect option on the Future Status dropdown on the Details screen?

We run a lot of public consultations and it would be great if, once a consultation is over, we could have it automatically redirect to a standard ‘Sorry, this consultation is now closed’ page.

That would be a nice feature.

For now you could setup a trigger to do the same thing either remapping it via a status change, or perhaps adding in a new date metadata field and using that so when that date passes, it changes the paint layout to a ‘consultation passed’ template? Depends on if you delete those pages often etc.

I would suggest just having a conditional keyword in your paint layout.

%begin_asset_metadata_consultationStatus^eq:closed%
    Sorry, this consultation is now closed
    OR
    %globals_asset_contents_raw:12345% where 12345 is your consultation closed page
%else_asset_metadata_consultationStatus%
    %asset_contents%
%end_asset_metadata_consultationStatus%

Thanks for you suggestions @ttrodd and @isimmons!
