Assistant User Role tied to Editor User Role, for Editor's assistant

Many editors have administrative or executive assistants helping them with journal tasks at their place of work, but that person is not the journal manager. In order to provide that assistant with an account that allows them to take action on manuscripts (rather than sharing the editor's log-in or seeing papers via a Viewing Center but having no ability to take action), they must be granted an Admin user role, but that is not always appropriate. S1 should create a User Role "Assistant" that can be linked to one or more Editors so the person with that Role can see and take action on any paper assigned to their linked Editor(s). This would solve the problem of granting too much access and power via an Admin center to people who don't need it or shouldn't have it.
