Manage your newsroom, not just your content
There are ever more elaborate systems for managing content. But how about the processes prior to actually writing that article?
Newsrooms of all sizes use Desk-Net to improve their coordination processes.
Planning stories is becoming ever more complex
Online needs to plan stories across the day sorted by time. The same story may need to show up in the story list for print sorted by section.
And the picture desk just cares about those stories with a picture request.
Desk-Net is your central editorial calendar with various views, filters and sorting options.
Manage and review your story lists on the go
Need to see at a glance what stories your newsroom is working on?
Desk-Net's mobile version provides you with a comprehensive list of all stories across any number of platforms.
Just want to see Sports stories with a video? Multiple filters allow you to do just that.
Additional information keeps you informed on a story's status and who is actually working on that story.
Group stories into overarching #topics
Many stories belong to a topic such as "Elections" or "Super Bowl".
You can tag stories with hashtags just like you do on Twitter.
This allows you to keep an eye on what's planned for a specific topic, or what you have published so far about it.
Efficiently manage editorial appointments
You receive a press invite to an event with attachments. The next meeting in city hall must be covered.
Covering such events is daily life for most newsrooms.
Manage your desks' calendars and appointments easily with Desk-Net.
All data related to an event such as the date and time, assignments and its coverage is aggregated into one single package.
Streamline your assignment workflow
Who is available to work on an assignment? Who is busy?
See who is available and assign tasks to both internal and external staff.
Ask freelance contributors to confirm their assignments and have them upload their content directly into Desk-Net.
Your editorial appointments and deadlines at your fingertips
As a reporter or photographer you hurry from appointment to appointment. The next deadline is typically right around the corner.
The page My Desk-Net keeps you informed about all your appointments and deadlines. When prompted you can instantly confirm or reject an assignment.
Manage absences and shifts
Modern newsrooms work in shifts from the morning to the night - some even around the clock and around the globe.
This increases your need to see who is actually available and assigned to what shift.
Desk-Net helps you keep track of shift assignments and absences.
Users have their shift assignments synced to their desktop or smartphone calendar.
