Tags that remain organized

Reading Time: 2 minutes

A major part in the art of curation is organizing content. Cronycle proposes several levels of content organization:

  • Content pinned onto boards: worth saving, often associated to one or several large categories / boards.
  • Content with one or several tags: relevant to specific subject(s), criteria, workflow status, or anything you can describe in a set of tag words.
  • Editor approved content: content ready to be sent to publishing.

On your boards, you can filter and search across several criteria, on a single board, or across all boards. Also, when adding tags, we display those already used on the current board to help you apply the same tags again.

But now we go a step further, with Organization tags.

We noticed that managing tags is difficult enough for one person, and very quickly gets out of hand in teams. We worked with some of our customers to provide teams a way to have a controlled tag list, applied across the organisation.

Admin users can upload a CSV file of their tag list. From that point onwards, users in their organisation can only apply the listed tags. To update the list, the admin can replace it any time by a new tag list. Next month, it will be also possible to edit the tags within the list, in Cronycle.

Note that this feature, and the brand new Admin Console to access it, is only available for Enterprise users.

Not another collaboration.

Collaboration. “The action of working with someone to produce something”

One of our key values, not only attached to our product but also our culture featuring an international team of 12 nationalities across 4 time zones. How can you make this work effectively with  the help of technology directly impacting the way teams are engaging  today? Without surprise, the hottest job title on trend currently is  “Digital Nomad” – defining people who use telecommunications technologies to earn a living and, more generally, conduct their life in a nomadic manner. Such workers often work remotely from foreign countries, coffee shops, public libraries, co-working spaces, and recreational vehicles. So much for a trend though, it’s been predicted that by 2035, over 1 billion people will be working this way. Without doubt, this life isn’t for everyone, but I’m confident we have all been through office space transformations with hot-desking and remote working all very 2005.

With more tools becoming available to encourage collaborative working, we see the likes of GitHub and Slack improving efficiencies, and at a rapid pace and scale. We, as employers or employees, are working smarter and more on the go than ever before. Is there a skill for Alexa to do it? The only thing that remains the same is that  we all have the same amount of time in a day, and there is no way to get more of it. It doesn’t matter how successful or wealthy one is – we are all capped at 24 hours per day.” as quoted by The Entrepreneur.

In the way technology makes us evolve as humans, it also encourages us to shape and adapt our products. As a result, we’ve rolled-out the largest update on “Boards”. Think of a board as an enriched collaboration space online, that enables you to work on specific projects with your team and to keep track of  notes, files, articles and everything in between. Roll this up with our Chrome extension clipper. This lets you clip the content directly from the web and continue collaborating as such with tagging and commenting straight to the Boards. It has never been easier to consolidate!. As Pokeshot rightly mentioned, “Find and use tools that integrate, so your employees can find everything in one place”.
