v0.8: Dashboard Notepad, Calendar Improvements, and more!

Happy New Year! We wanted to send out a quick update announcing the new features in Edit Flow v0.8.

New Feature: Dashboard Notepad

  • A simple, plain text notepad that allows admins and editors to leave notes that are visible to all users who have access to the dashboard. This is useful for leaving instructions, notes, or important announcements.

  • Drag and drop posts to reschedule them to a different day.
  • Click on a post to see metadata and quickly access Edit, Trash, Preview or Follow buttons.

Localization Updates

  • New Russian localization by to te-st.ru.
  • Updated Japanese localization by naokomc.
  • Updated Dutch localization by kardotim.

Other improvements:

  • Post Subscribers: Adding or removing subscribers to a post is now saved via AJAX, which means you can update post subscribers without clicking “Save Post.”
  • Following posts: New “Follow” links for posts across the Manage Posts, Calendar, or Story Budget page allows editors to easily follow or unfollow posts without needing to open the post.
  • Editorial Metadata dates: Ability to assign both a date and time to the editorial metadata’s date field, which helps clarify deadlines.
  • Email alerts: Scheduled publication time added to relevant email notifications.
