|Title (Goal)||Giving submitters a safe and easy to use interface to perform edits on existing items|
|Story (A paragraph or two describing what happens)|
The repository administrator, John, has configured the repository's configuration file, so that permissions are delegated to an item's original submitter, to change his submission's metadata after archival.
Two weeks after Sally has finalised the submission of her thesis to DSpace, she realizes that she forgot to fill out the sponsorship field where she was supposed to add grant or funder information. Sally is able to login and edit the metadata of the original item, in order to put this additional information in place. However, she is not able to remove, replace or add any bitstreams to the existing item.
When Sally saved the modifications to her thesis, the item returned to the workflow. As such, the item could no longer be viewed our found through the repository's user interface.
