Editorial Workbench 2

Login page

Should be a landing page

Home page

Should be where dashboards / tasks are

As a publisher should take you to the publication admin screen

Under publications admin should be 'create new' functionality

General enhancements

Pagination needs addressing across application.

Numerical pagination

Alphabetical sorting

Ability to view more than 10 results per page / view all

Ability to filter columns and search (for publications etc.)

Ability to multiple-select and select all

Need to be consistent about naming of feeds vs. content vs sources across application

Feed management

Need to show RSS and Factiva on same page

User admin

Need one click access to users


Streamline creation of new publication

Need to add context menu highlight to sources on mouse-over

Need more precision with source icons. I.e. don't use RSS icons for ATOM and Factiva sources

UI needs to be more intuitive at instructing user that articles can be dragged/dropped onto sections

Adjust content section

Summary is pre-populated from 'description', title is pre-populated, and date defaults to today.

"Manage Articles" renamed to "Adjust Articles"

Publish section

Rename "Publish" to "Approve Content", Add additional "Publish" / Distribute step after Approve Content in workflow, Re-order workflow and place adjust layout after adding images, Rename "Adjust Layout" to "Adjust Content", Clarification on naming of "Publish" vs "Distribute"

New publish page takes you to a new UI that contains all the publication models for a publication i.e. e-newsletter, dashboard etc.
