That’s petty spot on, although as @tom.dullemond mentioned it’s resolving the linkage which is currently a pain.
What I’d like to see in Lit v2 is some sort of process where you load all of your past submissions in bulk. This would include information like accepted / rejected, sent date, notes, etc. For the market bit we could group your submissions together and stick a “tag” on it (a tag with the name of the market). This at least means you could search your old submissions by “market tag”.
I like your idea of a ‘pending’ pile. Potentially once you’ve uploaded your submissions data we could provide a streamlined process that allows you to link up your “market tags” to markets in our system. You could have many submissions with the same market tag, so linking the market tag up to a market could link several submisisions up to the one market.
As for migrating your submissions from Submissions Grinder to Literarium, we might be able to do something where you copy and paste your subs grinder submissions page into a text box in Literarium. We could then sift through that text to pull our your submissions informtion. This is something we could experiment with.
Thanks for posting this topic @Corgrim, it’s one we want to keep in our sights.
