Work Streams

Editorial Tasks Made Easy

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.

Content that needs to be edited can be worked through collaboratively.

Global Search

Find Content Fast

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.

Limit search results by content type, date, and status.

Save common searches to make them easily accessible for future use.
Selections Toolbar

Scheduling
