Release Editor doesnt give enough information to link a recording to a track when there are multiple possible releases/ has extra step



    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Decision Required
    • Priority: Normal
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Affects Version/s: NGS - Release Candidate 1
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Release editor
    • Labels:


      Whilst adding a release when you are on the recording page and try to search for existing recording for that track, it listsd release groups the songs has been found in in a vertivcal list, if you then select one of these release groups it then lists the releases within the release group in a horizontal list.

      The trouble is no information is given except for the release name , because most releases within a release group have the same name you just end up with a series of identically labelled links, but it then turns out that when you select one of these releases it doesn't pick it automtically it opens a release group page listing all the releases within in and you have to select one anyway.


      So either the releases should be are shown as a vertical list, and include the Country, Release Year and No of Tracks as well, and selecting one should be the end of the process. Or this list of release shouldnt be displayed and when you select a release group it should staight away list all the releases within a release group whereby you can select one.
