Hi Chris,

I like that the “1” and “2” pills stay with the two components I’ve selected to move to the end of the list even after I’ve clicked to allow editing on the record — this helps make it much more clear that something wonky has happened (that “2” has been moved to the end of the list but that “1” has been moved to the third-from-last position). I have to wonder — are you thinking that this kind of visual indication is the best that can be done? Is it just not possible for “1” and “2” to be moved to the end of the list where they belong?

I also wonder if the labelling of “1”,”2”, etc. are a little ambiguous. I know what they’re doing, since you explained it to us. Would a better label perhaps be “1st selected”, “2nd selected”, etc?

Also, the click-to-load for links to many subrecords is looking really good. It makes it possible to load records that had failed to load before. Awesome!.

I’m wondering — what do those little boxes on the left navigation really get us? Maybe folks who have taught classes can chime in here, but I’m not sure that users really understand the relationship between the boxes and the numbers of subrecords. And even once they do understand them, I’m not sure that they add much. I noticed that the HM report said that these take time to render — it might be good to shave this off.

Hi everyone,

I've made a few tweaks to the tree ordering process. The process is a little smoother now, since it locks down what a user can do in the edit process, which is making it easier to see where some of the issues are.

The newest version is here :

I've also update the version at http://test.archivesspace.org<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__test.archivesspace.org&d=AwMF-g&c=-dg2m7zWuuDZ0MUcV7Sdqw&r=JgH2YCQ8D3P9-Lm_x4bv3d2CZBYlbx6hxnLFHtfovi8&m=-2h5dfTMwgfd9pL1GrIZ0ChnFrWsF9z9UM-o2PZJqLU&s=1bccrSr7Rod3ueNbHb7CDkwvo4YFN8IKvMVFEJgihe4&e=>, which you can log into and test with the admin/admin login.
Please have a look and let us know what you think.
Thanks again.
