Story List Content Planning Scheduled by Day

Story List

Manage the complexity of your content workflows

Don’t leave the challenges of running a modern newsroom to outdated, or generic tools that weren’t designed specifically for your needs.

The Story List gives editors complete control of the daily story flow. Track progress, publish date, platform destination, tasks and approvals for every story — all in one central place.

Short-term Planning

Optimize the short-term story mix

Get a complete overview of stories planned over several days or what’s coming up in a single day.

Easily plan your days or issues — drag and drop stories and compare multiple days, even across channels with different publication schedules.

Optimize your story mix and set yourself up for success, day after day.

Content Planning Detailed Task Management

Task Management

Assign and track everyone’s tasks — internally and externally

Running a newsroom is more than planning stories; it's about managing tasks seamlessly. Desk-Net links stories and tasks, ensuring your team stays on track.

Assign tasks (even to freelancers), view progress and set predefined text lengths. Boost team alignment, meet deadlines and cut down on the editing expenses.

Custom Fields

Customize your editorial planning tool to fit your needs

Your newsroom is unique, so why use a constricting, one-size-fits-all planning tool?

Obtain true flexibility — create custom Story List fields and views that can be saved and shared across teams, fostering cohesive planning and alignment.
