Migrating a request from a ticket to the forums to gather feedback from other people. Paraphrasing from the request:
Projects could really do with a more robust system for Roles or Departments. Things like Directors, Animators, Lighters, Modelers, etc. [...] A User could be connected to multiple Departments or Role entities as a user could fulfil multiple roles on a given project.
Then various things could be available based on Roles. So only certain departments could access certain media. When it's time to share with a larger group of users, departments could be added or removed. They could also help with our scheduling efforts in Shotgun. We typically book roles which have a start/end date then attach the user to the Role rather than attaching the start/end times on the user themselves. [...] It could be nice to have the ability to have a Leads department or role that could allow them greater control over the project.
What other applications are there for a 'Roles' entity that is specific to a user in the context of a particular Project? And what other use cases do you have for any of the suggestions above?
