Collaborate on content – now available on feeds

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Content curation is best done in teams – and Cronycle now has a new way to empower teams to collaborate on content with feeds.

Leverage the collective intelligence

Talking with our customers, we found that collaboration, and in particular leveraging a team’s or organization’s collective intelligence, is great for several reasons (that can happen simultaneously):

In all cases, having more eyes on the news is a good way to avoid blindspots.

Collaboration in Cronycle so far

Cronycle has always been about collaboration. So far, this mostly happened:

What’s new in Cronycle with collaborative feeds

Now, we also empower teams to collaborate on content with feeds:

Collaborate on your feeds: 
Invite contributors, 
Everyone can edit sources and filters,
Viewing preferences remain personal,
Only the feed owner can delete

To make a feed collaborative, you simply invite others to join you to an existing feed, using the “Collaborators” button on the feed itself.

It prompts you to add collaborators who are currently in your organization, or to invite new members by email (if you have the rights).

Invite others to collaborate on your feed

Now that I added Vishal to my feed, he can view the content, and also modify the keyword filters, collaborators and sources. As the feed owner, I am the only one to have the possibility to make this feed public and to delete it. Everything else is shared.

We can also decide on a common default board to pin to, as a team. This way, every content we save will automatically go to that common board in one click (exceptions are allowed). To do that, simply set a default board to pin to, and all feed contributors will get the same default. They will also be added as contributors to the board if they are not yet.

As a result, you empower your team to collaborate on content with Cronycle feeds, as well as through the complete workflow of content discovery, curation, organization and publishing. The team members can collectively keep an eye on news, either sharing the load, or bringing their own judgement to the same content.
