We have a News & Announcements category. Different members of our community should be able to post announcements. I’d like to have a non-public place where anyone can create a draft, which then will get scheduled  to move to the public category.
Right now, this is easy to do if you don’t mind people seeing all the drafts, even for other people’s announcements. Is it possible to make a category where non-staff can create and edit (and see!) their own topics, but not others?
Right now, the best I can think of is to create a group that anyone can message, which when ready would then be moved to the Scheduling category. But that feels like extra hoops. Any better ideas?
I’d like a defined non-admin group to able to do this scheduling, but [that’s an RFE for the Timed Topic feature], I think(How to create a Timed Topic) ↩︎
But in that case (using a category rather than messages), only members of the selected group can write drafts, and all members of that group can see other drafts, right? That makes sense for a small community with a single core team, but not so much for a big, complicated one.
I’m not sure if it will fit your use-case, but I create a pm to myself and build my project in there, and then use a topic timer to schedule publishing (TL4 and above perk, but you could have ‘flag and request’?). Would that be any use?
And is it so easy to find if and when there is another sended PMs? But the main point is it should be at inbox. And the main-main point is there wouldn’t be need to such trick if we could have more than one draft.
Well, this is off topic, and as old than requests for easier composer
