Material flow simplification by making things optional
Currently the material flow combines amongst others, a restrictive list of access rights, retention policies and metadata fields. These operate as restrictions on which access rights, retention policies and metadata fields can be supplied by the submitter. We suggest to make it possible to opt-out on any of these restrictions. That would benefit customers that have automated submission workflows outside of Rosetta where the metadata is already checked for validity and fully under control. It would also help solving human errors when new ARs are created, but forgotten to be added to their respective material flows. If it not possible to opt-out, it would be nice to have 'I do not care' or 'Anything' entries in the access right and retention policy list that do basically the same. For us personally, relaxing the access right restrictions would be the biggest win.
