Hiya Punkturis! (followed your twitter here)

Like everyone else, I agree that the roles are the biggest headache. They aren't intuitive what-so-ever. An entire revamp of those would be awesome.

Making it easier to understand shares and how they work would be great.

When I had my corp, I'll have to admit most of the interface was difficult to navigate. There was a lot of 'click this button and see what it does' lol.  ~ Roleplay blog. ~ Faction War blog.

Granular control over assets, modules and roles.

So lets say I want to grant access to Module type a in POS z without granting access to Module type a in POS y.

At the moment I have to lock it all down with passwords, not good.

unrenting offices is currently an extremely hidden and unintuitive process/location

Locations are ambiguous. I'm still not completely familiar with the location categories of POS hangars vs station hangars. I have to check when assigning them, and even then, sometimes I'm not sure which location type did the trick.

Can you make titles and roles two separate things? It would reduce title clutter in character info, as well as unnecessary intel (visible in character info). The public visibility of titles while also being the name of a set of roles seems odd to me. I think titles should function more like medals, or a rank, rather than a public indication of what roles a character has.

What I end up with are identical sets of roles with different names, for the sake of the title visible in character sheet.

I don't even know how roles are suposed to work and how I can impose restrictions to my subordinates. I supose that's part of the magic of EVE, but having an accountant or something capable of waltzing out with all the goods in a glorious Grand Theft Corp, with only trust and loyalty acting as deterrents is almost bizzare.

Allow us to remote-stack and repackage (undamaged) corporate assets and deliveries!

Currently when making corporate-level couriers I am routinely going over the 250 item limit. This could be avoided if I were able to stack all the damn fuel that's come from sixteen different people.

Would be great if we could rename hangers in different POS arrays. E.G. I have two in the corporate hanger called fittings and ammo, does not make much sense in the Advanced lab array.

and as others have stated, roles need a complete re-think.

The biggest little thing...?

Access (Hangar and Wallet) Roles:
I have renamed the Divisions in the Wallet and Corp Hangars and the Roles show "Division 1"...etc.

If the Role names reflected the renamed divisions I wouldn't have to check a list to verify which was which every time I gave someone roles.

Second little (possibly bigger) thing.

Corp Standings - last time I had to worry about it (The corp had a substantial US TZ population and was living in Providence at the time - but my Directors were all EU TZ) only Director level roles were able to set corp standings. The Diplomat role should grant that ability - with a log, communication or auto-generated corp mail telling the directors what standings have been modified so that they can ratify the decision.

How about this:

Members can be filled with Titles.
Titles can be filled with Roles.
Roles get a show info with clear description of what it does and a tool tip with a summary.
A special 'Location Restriction' role can be created and named which defines the location(s) all Roles within the Title are available.
Members and Titles can be opened in a new window similar to containers.
Roles can be dragged into Titles and Titles can be dragged into Members.
Special icons on the Members with CEO and Director positions.

Where to start?

A complete overhaul of roles management would be fantastic, but I guess that is tied to the POS code in general.

small things:

- assets in space list accessable for non-directors but a role
- the ability to warp to assets in space instead of the need of bookmarks
- ability to remotely transfer POCOs (like setting taxes)
- ability to drag from corp hangars without the need to put it in your own item hangar first
- corp market orders that can be updated by any member with the specific roles, not the ones who seeded it
- corp BM cap - pretty please, give us more
(- alliance BMs!)
- corp BMs that have been created by a member without roles to be removable for that member in particular
- log files for certain things like role assignment, transfer of corp assets, etc. - maybe with a checkbox to decide what you want to log

I guess most of the other things are tied to POS/sovereignty code so I won't talk about that :)

I might have missed it, but did someone mention "roles". That mechanic is seriously fubar'd.
Also, roles needs to be fixed.
Like last year-ish.

You have KillMails for ego wall in zkillboards, wallet jurnal for easy manage your money/profits, what about corp activity?
Nothing usable, so why not industry and asteroid kill board in corp =)

- Just make a LOG with:
taken / given / production / research / donation / transfer / ect in each division with nice overview + API

- Do you know how google friends circles works? What about use that mechanic or similar for manage corporation roles
- More division and differently in each array so you can set better restriction

Nice / similar thoughts:
Attention Schluffi Schluffelsen I like this transfers assets between divisions from distance like industry is.

yes ROLES / POS / ROLES / UI =)

Tbh you should probably wait until the alliance as entity and POS revamp are on the way, since 99% of the corp issues are about the connection on hangars and in-space assets.

Corp logo creator feels dated... has it been changed since launch?

1. Some of the roles do not actually do what they state (surrounding manufacturing in a POS).

2. The ability to grant more roles to non-directors. For example, director is currently needed to transfer Player Owned Customs Offices. It cannot be delegated. I'd like to delegate that task to my logistics group.

3. Overall performance of the corporation UI, most specifically with Members page. Perhaps change the default to "Online members" instead of displaying all members first.

4. Integrate corp auditing into notifications. I'd like to receive a notification when there are changes to titles or assignment changes of roles and/or titles to individuals.

5. When viewing Corp Assets, allow View Contents on containers and ships.

6. Members of corporations can see standings labels when in the corp interface. However, they cannot see the labels when viewing the contact's Show Info. Show the label in the Show Info.

I want to give a corp-mate access to a research lab:

  • Factory manager role so they can cancel everyone's jobs
  • Corp wallet access ("Junior Accountant") so they can use corp funds to pay the 0 ISK lab rental fee
  • Then there's a special role for using research activity lines
  • Then there's a special role for having access to the hangars
  • I give up. Just give them all rights to everything.

Wouldn't it be better if:

  • Set this specific mobile laboratory to have standings-based access. Anyone with "Excellent" standings can use it.
  • If you have access to a lab, you can queue and cancel exactly your own jobs
  • All materials are sourced from Personal or Corporate hangar arrays, no longer do activity lines have their own hangars
  • All Personal or Corporate hangar arrays are treated as a single entity: space in the personal or corporate hangar is simply the sum of all the space available from the various PHA and CHA items associated with this installation
  • You can choose to gather from and deliver to any hangar you have access to at this installation (including your personal hangar)
  • If you have "Factory Manager" role for the entire corp or for this specific facility, you can cancel any jobs

There is no horizontal scrolling on the Title Management UI.

Bulk Updates:
Ability to perform easy bulk updates on title/role/medals if i can give something to someone i'd like to be able to hand it out to 20 people just as easily.

Ability to name hangars per station (if database capacity allows).
Ability to set roles for hangars per station/office/POS.

Ability to create more titles that we can attach roles to if database allows.

Ability to turn off wallet blink for JUST the corp wallet.
Possibly a way to link people together (group person's main/alts up so I can see who is who).
Ability to create and display a rank structure.
