I want to e x p a n d the talent pool that I can draw from to complete anvil tasks (Upwork, Toptal, etc…) without having to pay significantly more for a business account, or, use free tools. (Thanks to @mark.breuss, and @owen.campbell, for pointing out these options)
Preview Work Link For Potential Subcontractors
Could post this link to Upwork for a given job. Freelancers could then preview the Anvil app they would be working on (and also the IDE they would be working with as a consequence).
This preview link feature, would be free for all accounts. Only when a subcontractor has signed a contract, then I would buy the necessary subcontractor account.
Fine Grained Permissions:
Credit to @mark.breuss for this.
“Who can merge into master? Publishing? Change Environments…
Enabling Pull requests would be a killer feature for larger projects as well.”
Financial Incentive For Anvil
A stupendously huge beneficial side-effect that this would have for Anvil, is free advertising to the wider developer community, and direct revenue from some small fee for having À La Carte Subcontractors Accounts.
Going from $50 a month to $300 a month is quite a jump, and why do that if I only need one feature from the business plan?
I’m thinking something like $50 a month + $20 a month per collaborator account would be reasonable.
