On the LV management dashboad is written:
To edit the sections below, double-click the table cell. Hit "Enter" to save or "Escape" to cancel your change.
But ONLY ONE click is enough to edit the section and I see neither need nor any possibility to hit "Enter" or "Escape", because everything happens automatically after I choose the position by the dropping-down-menu...

Am I right to think the information isn`t actual? 🦧

Some fields, such as the section title field and URL field, the information does not save automatically. You must hit Enter to save it. If you don't, you lose the information.

The Status field is one exception.

The Notes field is the other. Hitting Enter there takes you to a new line. There you have to click Save (or do Tab-Enter REALLY quickly before it realizes you've left the text box).

Very well; thank you, Tricia! 💝
As I understand, all of it doesn`t concern DPLers very much - isn`t true?
As far as DPLers change only the Status, am I right?

Yes, DPLs change only the status - although they can sometimes enter something into the "Notes" field.

I often enter a direct link to the post with the PL notes:

Code: Select all

PL notes <a href="">HERE</a>
(with the post URL between the two quote marks).

Some DPLs simply add "PL notes page 4" (when the post is on page 4 of the thread).

This is especially helpful on group projects, where the reader or BC may want to see the notes after pages and pages of new posts have been made, making it hard to find the notes for that specific section.
