User's favourites or Followed Events list
Description of feature request
Insert a tabin between the already present tabs LATEST and ALERTS. This tab could be called "FOLLOWED EVENTS" (Not PREFERRED, it would confuse people with "preferred events" in case of a super-events).The tab would link to the page "FOLLOWED EVENTS" which would appear really as it looks now the LATEST page. The difference is that the entry showed in "FOLLOWED EVENTS" page will show only the events or supervents flagged as "FOLLOWED" by the user.
Events should be flag-able either from the SEARCH page or from the LATEST page.
- internal use for LIGO: It is useful for experts ROTA or advocates or PE-Rotaers that can easily keep track of the events they got assigned.
- In general any scientist interested in a particular event can follow it. i.e.: if I am interested in tracking the analysis for only Binary Neutron stars system, I would flag as FOLLOW only that events.
I think it helps really tracking the events a scientist want to follow.
Not really any drawbacks at the moment as far as I can see. Apart that one has to redesign the toolbar adding the "FOLLOWED EVENTS" tab.
Here attached a figure that shows how to display (the example is for LATEST page, BUt consider please doing that also for the SEARCH page) the boxes to flag in the FOLLOW column. All the flagged events (either a flag or dot or a filling color) will go in the FOLLOWED EVENT page. Of course rememer to add a 'X' symbol in the FOLLOWED EVENT page if one wants to remove that event.
