We recently did some updates to how you can do collaboration on content from your Cronycle boards.
A new tutorial
For one, we wrote a complete tutorial on board collaboration, including invites, actions on the boards, and publishing. If you are new to Cronycle, you probably find everything you need here.
Board contributor rights
If you are already familiar with Cronycle, here is a bit of explanation of what changed. Board contributors can now do everything the board owner can do, except:
- Delete the board
- Publish to Slack and Buffer (because they require personal authentication to those services).
This means that all board contributors can delete and modify content, change board name and description, publish to the other four alternatives (newsletters, RSS, WordPress and Curated Feed).
Board ownership transfer
Another addition to collaboration on content from your boards is board ownership transfer. You will find it in the board settings panel (click on the cog wheel to open it). Expand the information section: by the name of the board owner, there is now a button to transfer ownership.
Note that the transfer can only be done towards another board contributor. So remember to add the relevant contributor before, by clicking on the people icon, just left of the cog wheel.
And also copying across boards
We also did a few updates related to how content is copied across boards. This is very useful in teams who do collaboration on content from their boards: the same content or story arc can be relevant to several collaborators.
First, know that you can copy content across from one board to another. To do that, click on the … at the top of the board tile, and select Copy to Other Board. You will then be directed to select the board to add this content to. Note that the original content stays on the original board.
We changed two things in relation to this feature:
- we allow the same article to be in several story arcs (ie groups) when some have been copied across
- we let you decide whether or not to copy the tags and summary to the new board
Don’t hesitate to provide feedback on how boards work (or don’t) for you from our contact form!
