May 14, 2012 Leave a Comment
Our development team has put together some great improvements to Newsdesk for this release.
A Wider Screen to Show More Information. Newsdesk will now load in expanded mode to better reflect the majority of our visitors’ browsing resolutions. The shrink button will still be available.
Customize the Dashboard Your Way. Select the number of headlines to display in the dashboard widgets with the new drop-down menu. Combined with the new Group Dashboards, you can enjoy unprecedented control over multiple feeds and workspaces, whether sharing news with your team or your entire organization.
Faster Media Monitoring. We’ve reduced the turn-around time for new articles coming into the system by about 5 minutes, making Newsdesk’s media coverage even nearer to real time than before.
More Public Facebook Posts. We’ve made improvements to our Facebook coverage of publicly shared updates. Contact Client Services to find out more and if you would like us to look for specific keyword mentions on Facebook.
Updates to Yammer. We have updated our integration with Yammer, the corporate social networking service, to use their latest widget with many new features.
Improvements to the Interface. The feed dropdown menu no longer sticks around when you mouse away; thumbnail images are better aligned; user comments are presented in a nicer way; we are testing new styling for headlines in the search results
The Right Quotation Marks, Every Time. Now you can paste queries from Microsoft Word and Outlook without worrying about so-called “curly quotes” breaking your search. These quotation characters are now automatically converted to their plain text versions.
