Link 'The Cast' entries to 'Character Information'
When you bring up 'The Cast' the characters appear in a list.

It would very efficient in management if the coding could make each characters name a link to thier "character information" page. That being the one where you can for the one character adjust tags, bio lines, select a pic and manage the character sheet. This is one you get to if you select "character details" then scroll down the list.

Working on a more collaborative project and setting up lots of NPCs for both the player and the GM to access. This would make the grunt work in setting these up more efficient and surely help with long term management as well.

An advantage to this over the existing is it allows users to right click each character and select 'open in new tab'. This make character to character comparisons faster. The current 'character details' with the 'view' button does not allow this right-click 'new tab' function.

Most of these features are there with this suggestion being a way to make operations more efficient.

Perhaps simply copy-paste the "Info" link onto that page's table. +1 for a useful shortcut.

The Cast List links, as they are currently, will take you to the character description, simply because of the fact that for 99.999%+ of site users that's the only thing they would be able to see anyway if they clicked on the link.

All the other character information is hidden from them.

I think an extra column being added to the GM's version of the table to hold the links to the character information pages, would be a better way to handle this.

In reply to Brygun (msg # 1):

Is this feature suggested for GM use only?

It would have to be, because the character information / character sheet is designed to be private between the GM and the player concerned. Nobody else should have access to that. The Cast List description is where public information goes.

I agree that this would be the best way to handle this and a very welcome addition.

If there was an additional column/icon you could click to take you to the character details (character sheet) section, that'd also be great.
