Card locking and Change History for inclusions
I am looking for the below capabilities in WAGN:
1.) Card locking / Content
Let's assume I have a card type called "Evaluation", which is being formatted via Evaluation+*content. The *content can evolve over time, BUT, any changes to *content should only be applied to new Evaluation cards, not when viewing old cards. Is there an easy way to lock cards, when completed? I think I can achieve such behavior by moving the content of the card a level up to "Just that card", but would prefer not to have to put this into the end-user's hands (especially since they would probly not even have the permission to edit the card's settings).
2.) When viewing a card's changes, is there a way to also show the changes of that particular card's inclusions? Simultaneously?
1. Do you know about the +*self Setting? If you add an Evaluation card "foo", when you're ready to lock it you could copy the form from Evaluation+*type+*content to foo+*self+*content. The latter would then override the former, and any changes to Evaluation+*type+*content would no longer affect foo. (Maybe this is what you meant by "up a level"?)
You could alternately use Evaluation+*type+*default instead of +*content. The drawback here is that each time a user edited a card, they would have to click on the "inclusions" subtab. Maybe we want to add setting to default to editing inclusions, but that's not available currently.
2. Not now. See Changes tab+tickets for item.
Yes, that is what I meant by "up a level". Is there currently a simple way to automate the process of copying the form content from *type to *self? I will most likely limit the user privileges of the end-users, so that they themselves won't be able to modify the card settings.

There is no way to automatically copy from one card to another.
