again not sure this makes sense from a ux perspective


reassign to me if you want it doing should be trivial

Not an ideal UX solution, but important in the interim!

this isn't really needed then! there is no point doing work if we need to do it again editing resources is easy enough now anyway

I suggest we just close this ticket as a won't fix and #2705 as well while we're at it.

I'm also not happy about these being added to the phase 2 milestone when we are at the end of finishing it and these are not bugfixes or critical functionality

This relates to #2705. We need to decide what happens when the user clicks on one of the sidebar links.

At the moment they'll get a warning if they've edited the form telling them they'll lose thier changes. Perhaps we should submit the form using ajax, showing a spinner to the user, then send them on to the next resource.

This is the same situation as if we add an "add new resource" button to the listing.

I don't like auto submit as people may think (reasonably) that their changes are discarded.

We could catch all clicks and then ask the user if they've changed something but this feels a little crazy - better than the browser dialog. hmmm

maybe we should discuss this ticket with the other backlog of undecided/unsure

personally I think we need to review the whole edit/view/delete logic as it feels real poor from my perspective - I need to edit something to delete it - that is a wtf imho

let's work out what we are doing before wasting energy on this
