Your content workspace is getting a lot cleaner!
Give your team more context with content descriptions. Add a short description to any piece of content, so you and your team can stay focused and on the same page.
Get more space and less distraction with a full-screen experience. Stay on task and keep projects moving forward with a focused, clean, full screen interface. Everything has its place, and can be minimized or expanded, making your workspace free of distractions.
Keep all your tasks and comments in the new sidebar for a cleaner, more simplistic space.
You can find all your favorite productivity tools in the NEW sidebar. Easily add tasks, give an update to your team in comments, or assign another person to the project from there.
Never miss a comment and stay on top of your project with NEW notification flags.
With three specific tabs (tasks, comments, and team members) in the new sidebar, we’ve added NEW notification flags for quick “at a glance” updates on each piece of your project.
The “comments” tabs will now flag you when there are unread comments, tell you how many unread comments you have, as well as truncate all older comments. No more endless scrolling to get to the newest information—yay!
Also, your task tab will immediately give you a progress update without having to dig into each task tab, and will be based on the percentage of “checked off” tasks on your project list. So, you’ll be able to quickly gauge if a project is on schedule (and make adjustments as needed).
Turn social campaigns ON or OFF (it’s there where you need it + hidden when you dont)
Not every project needs a social campaign. With your NEW content redesign, you can now choose to attach a social campaign (or leave it off). Simply click on the “plus” icon (located beneath your content editor) and your NEW and improved social campaign (previously known as the social queue) will automatically appear. Add a URL link, upload a social template, and you’re well on your way to building a stellar social game plan.
Create unscheduled tasks + easily organize them via drag-and-drop.
Adding unscheduled tasks to your project is now a reality. No need to add a date to every task on your list. Just create a task, hit “enter”, and instantly add them to your project. Need to rearrange a few? No worries! With the NEW drag & drop capabilities, simply drag a task from one spot and drop it in its new location; no more deleting, re-dos, or starting over when creating your team’s task list. It’s that easy.
Your Headline Analyzer is located in its own tab (and can be turned ON or OFF in settings).
Sometimes you need the Headline Analyzer, and other times you don’t. That’s why you now have the option to turn it on or off in your settings tab under integrations.
And when you are using it, the Headline Analyzer has its own collapsible tab in your content. Use it when you need it and hide it when you’re working on other stuff.
Your content editor is NEW and improved!
Use CoSchedule’s brand-new redesigned text editor or choose an integration with Google Docs, Evernote, or WordPress. We’ve made major improvements to CoSchedule’s text editor with more editing features, better reliability, and an overall smoother experience.
And with the new design, adding your project’s file from Google Docs, Evernote, and other formats is way more straight-forward and simplified; making it easy for your team to stay in the loop and on task (with the most updated information).
Customize your “Create New” menu with the projects your team is working on!
Build the perfect “Create New” menu for your team. Add as many project types as you’d like: email, blog posts, podcasts—you name it! It’s the perfect menu for what your team is working on!
Mark Your Calendar!
Phase one of your NEW calendar redesign is all about keeping things simple and allowing you to customize your content creation interface the way you use it. It’s everything you need and nothing you don’t.
Mark your calendar for Nov. 1, 2016 and share this article with your team so they can be prepared for the change. We appreciate your patience as we roll out these changes. These improvements set the stage for more good things to come and we’re excited to share them with you!
