A new version of Desk-Net (1.96) with these improvements is now available:
Statuses per platform: The list of statuses used to apply to all platforms.
With the new release, you can specify per status which platforms it should apply to (Admin > Statuses).
Sub-topics: Need to structure your topics or campaigns better? Now you are able to define sub-topics.
This is especially handy for campaign management and the coverage of major news events such as a sports tournament.
Turn off specific features: Not all customers use all the features in Desk-Net, of course. For this reason, we allow admins to switch certain features on or off.
While this has been possible for quite a while we will increase the number of such features significantly over the next few months.
With this release admins can disable the following features in the Admin section: Confidentiality, location, attachments and story note.
Default status per platform: You can now select a default status per platform in the admin area. Whenever a story is entered this status is pre-entered.
Desk-Net used to pre-enter a new publication status based on the status of the previously entered story. According to many users this led to many incorrectly entered stories.
Setting the default status is easy: Access the platform page in the admin area. Open a platform for editing and select the Advanced Settings tab. On that page you can define the default status.
We hope these new features will make working with Desk-Net easier and more enjoyable. We welcome your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
