Feature Request: Allow Collections to be placed on an InDesign page

Kevin M. Cox 8 years ago in BLOX Total CMS updated 8 years ago 1

I’d like to make a feature request to allow the TotalCMS Asset Manager to place a Collection asset onto an InDesign page.

Collections are the ideal asset type for photo-only “wildart” packages that make it into print and go online.

These typically have either no text or just a short copy block that accompanies a layout dominated by the photographs. As such using an Article Asset to get them online just looks silly and isn’t the most effective presentation tool.

Right now we’re having to create both an article for the print side (making sure it is set to not publish online) and then a Collection for the web. Duplicating our efforts of attaching photos, etc.

This is something we’d utilize multiple times per week and I think would benefit other TotalCMS users as well.

Please let me know what y’all think.

Just to update this one, I'm told the request is now on the development schedule for a Page Tracker release next year.
