An Assignment must be created for each content item in order to assign a staff or freelance content creator (author, photographer, videographer, etc.) to the content item. This is where the details and expectations of the content item and associated deliverables will be defined. For freelancers, the assignment record allows them access to a content item, and ultimately drives the payment/buyout process.
