We’ve been listening to our users as they get a chance to put CoSchedule through its paces, and we’ve been keeping track of the features they’d like to see in CoSchedule. So, in the spirit of building CoSchedule using the feedback you’ve provided, we’ve got a little show-and-tell on what we’ve added in the past few days.

1. Smarter Notifications

We’re working on making our notifications do more work for you, fitting naturally into any workflow and making sure no part of your editorial process falls between the cracks.

We’ve made it so that when you add a follower to a post, they receive a notification on their CoSchedule dashboard. Once they are a follower, activities like comments will elicit an email so that they are aware of what’s happening with the post.

Additionally, when a contributor creates a new post, the editors are notified via email so that they can begin their editorial workflow. They can choose to follow the post themselves, or assign tasks and followers to it as they see fit within their organization.

2. Post Status Filtering For Drafts

Several of our users have a unique workflow that makes it important that the unscheduled draft flyout area on the right side of the screen allow for more filtering controls. They needed to be able to filter by post status so that they could easily see which phase (draft or pending review) a post was in.

We agreed it was an important feature, and beefed up the filtering properties of the unscheduled draft flyout area. This now includes:

  • Real-Time Search. As you type your search query, the posts begin filtering.
  • Post Status Filter. A simple drop down menu allows you to filter and see whether a post is a draft, or pending review.
  • Date Modified Ordering. Posts are automatically placed in descending order with the most recently modified posts on the top of the list.

You can use the search and filter capabilities with each other, which is particularly useful if you have a lot of unscheduled posts.

3. Post Status Filtering On The Calendar

You’ve always been able to filter your calendar view according to post category, author, and social media account from the left flyout filter area. We’ve added the ability to filter your calendar view by post status as well. Now you can quickly see which posts on your calendar are draft, pending review, scheduled, and published.

It’s another level of control that allows you to see what’s happening with your content marketing.

We know many of our users will find these latest features very hand. But here’s the big question for you: What feature would you like to see added to CoSchedule?
