However, one problem with this is that each week the Production Editor will need to import 4-8 XML files, one for each section. "Section" is a taxonomy field in the Drupal "Article" content type, and it's listed nowhere in the XML files they output.
To this end, is there any way to manually set the values of certain fields when importing, on a per-import basis?
I'm thinking this would look like a text box that shows up in Feeds UI when uploading the XML file. Feeds Tamper seems like an idea, but it looks like it's more designed to set default values, and less set specific values on a per-import basis.
