So, Simon Nicks is, for example, Content Controller for BFBS Radio. I'd like him to appear in all BFBS Radio entries.
Currently there are two ways of doing that:
- Entering Simon Nicks under each and every BFBS Radio service, which is quite painful.
- Entering Simon Nicks under SSVC, BFBS's owner, but that means he is also listed as Content Controller for Forces TV (which isn't true).
As another example: Matt Gray is a broadcast engineer for Global's radio stations in Leicester Square. He's not a broadcast engineer for Heart Cambridge, nor for Capital Scotland.
I've been battling with a new way of listing these folk for a while, and I think I've hit on the idea.
We use the 'tags' functionality to add a "tag" marked group:bfbsradio and tag all BFBS Radio stations with this tag. Then we can add Simon Nicks as Content Controller for "group:bfbsradio", and that should then flow through to all the stations that have that tag.
Or, we add a 'tag' marked group:globallondon and add Matt Gray as a broadcast engineer for that tag. He'd then flow through to all the Global London stations, but not to the others.
People can only be attached to a tag starting "group:" and perhaps we might add a note explaining what that group actually means, I don't know.
Does this make sense?
