Publish Forms

When preparing a story for use in a particular Publication Channel, knowing which components to use and finding out whether you have included all required components is not always an easy task. This is where Publish Forms come in: they show you only those components that are needed for publishing a story to a particular Publication Channel and prevent you from having to deal with content that is not relevant for that channel.


The introduction of Publish Forms does not change the concept of publishing in Enterprise: it is still based on a story which is represented by the content of a Dossier. In fact: Publish Forms can only be viewed inside a Dossier. Content can also still be used across Publication Channels. What Publish Forms add is an efficient way of collecting the necessary content (in the form of metadata, articles, images and so on) in one convenient view.

Dossier Labels: quickly filter the files in your Dossier

Files in a Dossier can now have a label assigned. These labels (called Dossier Labels) can be used to filter the Dossier to only show files that have one or more labels assigned.This way, files that are not needed for the task in hand can be quickly hidden from view, thereby making finding the files that need to be worked on more efficient.


Figure: A Dossier containing 12 files with several Dossier Labels assigned to them. The Dossier is not filtered: all 12 files are shown. The available Dossier Labels on which the Dossier can be filtered are shown in the Dossier Label bar (A), while the Dossier Labels that are assigned to a file are shown in the Labels column (B).


Figure: Using the buttons in the Dossier Label bar (A), the same Dossier as in the figure above is now filtered by Dossier Label 'photo shoot 1'. As a result, a total of 5 files are now shown (B).

Adding tags to Web articles

Tags (keywords) can now be added to articles that are going to be published to the Web (to a Web site running Drupal 7). Tags can be added in 2 ways:

  1. By choosing from tags that are generated automatically based on the content of the story
  2. By adding tags manually, optionally aided by an auto-complete feature or by choosing from a list of tags

Figure: Fields for adding keywords in a Publish Form. The tags to the right of each field are generated automatically.

Publishing to Facebook & Twitter

Support has been added for publishing posts direct to Facebook & Twitter. These can be posts with or without a hyperlink, single photos or photo albums.

 

These are just a few of the new features enchancing your workflow to produce rich media to satisfy the demand of your customers .
