It feels to us that the show repository needs more options in terms of structure. For instance, it would be good to be able to have "folders" for lack of a better term that would encompass the Active shows, things that are running this current season. An Archive directory that has past versions of shows and shows that are in the reperatory, but not active in the current season. And lastly a Working directory where pre-programming and miscellaneous files would be kept.
This structuring would allow for a more filtered view of what cue lists and show devices are available, like in the current method of loading a cue list, all cue lists are visible from all repositories at once, meaning that if you keep an archive of all shows from each season, like we do, you have the option of 8 potentially different "Aida" cue lists. So, along with a more organizational show repository, it would be beneficial to have the "load cue list" button on each channel open a window or tree in which the user can select from "Active," "Working," or "Archive" directories, or alternatively, with the secure device, only allow certain users to view the "Active" directory.
