#3227 new enhancement

Hide speakers and sessions from team until selections has been confirmed

Description

Speaker request form creates automatically session and speaker posts, which itself is very nice. If whole organising team has access to dashboard (as they should), they can see those applications before any selections has been made.

There's camps making selections anonymously, this is when we get to small issue. I think it would be reasonable to show session and speaker posts only to lead organiser and team members responsible on running selection process. This could be done with new post status and setting where LO could select capable users to see posts with that status. Post status draft can be then used to mark selected sessions and speakers.

Hi Timi, thanks for the suggestion. Supporting blind speaker selection is definitely something that many on the Community team value.

That's one of the goals of the WordCamp Talks plugin that's being developed. It has roles for different members of the organizing team, so that some can vote blind. It's not quite ready for production yet, but if you'd like to help get it there, just ping @tjnowell on Slack some time and he can help you find a good place to get plugged in.
