The Dashboard is the entry point of the editorial experience and provides editors an easy way to get started with their most common tasks
Use Work Streams to group content that must be updated or reviewed, then assign as a task to one or more editors. Brightspot Work Streams are dynamic, and smart enough to keep multiple users working on new content within each Work Stream, no matter how many editors are assigned. Work Streams increase efficiency and enable editorial teams to collaborate constantly.
Traditional CMSs often impose content hierarchy that editors have to navigate to find the items they need to publish. Brightspot removes that arbitrary limitation with a full-featured content search capability. Instead of clicking through directory structures, editors can simply search using any text string they believe would point to the item.
Edit images and the associated meta-data in any context. Using the text overlay and hotspot tools, add text, icons, tool-tips, on-hover data, and modular content to single images or contextually within photo galleries and promotional modules.
Bulk Scheduling allows multiple pieces of content to be edited or created, and set to go live at once. Perfect for product releases, or special events, all scheduled changes can be previewed on the site before going live, and pushed to the site at any given point.
When making changes within the Rich Text Tool each Editor can annotate their changes, leave notes, and accept or reject previous changes that are part of content workflow. Newly added or removed text is color coded allowing instant context to what has changed.
Notifications show users their personal notification center, alerting them when there is any content they need to view such as content that has been submitted for approval, content that has been shared with them or if they have been added to a work stream.
Custom workflows can be created for any user role and content type. Editors can build their own workflows with transitions and statuses, using the intuitive drag-and-drop interface that matches the editorial flow. Workflows can be very useful for editors looking to see the status of a project at a glance, or in any case when multiple editors are contributing to separate phases of a project.
Inventory Manager allows Brightspot users to view, modify, and analyze content all in a dedicated view. Users can create content collections for syndication, bulk edit actions or reporting.
