Assigning a Role changes Priority
Our priority for all staff and students are done in the index file before import. We spend an extensive time on a colums pre-import to make sure we have a flawless import.
What I notice is that when we add a Role to teacher and aide so that the photos are feactures, it also changes the current priority to a default of 3. Requesting that if there is currently a priority prior to assisning a role, not change it done to its current value.

Also looking for an update on this issue. It is very time consuming to have to rework data that you've already perfected! Thanks!
Assign role automatically adds information to certain fields by design. It is intended as a starting point to get your portraits into order. Do not use it if you have customized the fields already.
I already have customized priority fields ( I set all of my priorities externally ) but have to assign the role to teacher and aides, otherwise their photo will be featured. Would be best that only a priority is assisgned if one does not exist. If it sees a value, it should leave it as is.
In this case do not use Assign role. Assign role gives a group of properties to the selected portraits - it is a preset intended to adjust multiple categories in a single click.
Bulk edit your teachers to adjust only their ROLE - it won't touch the other properties you have assigned to the portraits in this case.
We do need to assign a role or else the teacher of Aid's photo will not be featured.
