Desk-Net provides you with a predefined set of publication statuses such as "Accepted". You can add your own status levels, deactivate those you do not need and reorder the list on the page Admin < Statuses.
Status levels are useful to structure your story lists and workflows. You can sort your story lists by status level on the Dashboard page and on the Short-Term Planning page. And you can filter your story and event lists for one or more status levels whenever you see the "More filters" option at the top of the page.
How to add a new status level:
- Go to the page Admin < Statuses
- Click on "Add status"
- Enter a status label (max. 12 characters)
- Select an icon
- Click on "Save"
How to deactivate a status level:
- Hover over the status icon you would like to deactivate
- Select "Deactivate"
You can reactivate a deactivated status level at any time if you decide to use it again.
Click on "Deactivated statuses" to see a list of all deactivated statuses.
How to rearrange the list of status levels:
- Hover over a status
- Select "Top", "One up", "One down" or "Bottom"
The order of the list of the status levels influences the sorting of the story lists.
Stories / Events with a status icon will be be sorted accordingly.
How to manage statuses per platform
You probably will not use every status for each of your platforms. On the status page in the admin section you can select the relevant statuses for each platform seperatly by clicking on a status and choosing all relevant platforms.
You can also make selections per platform on the Admin> publication platfomrs page. Select the desired platform and click "edit". Below the name you will find the option "Statuses". Here you can make your selection.
The lowest selected status in the list is the default publication status, which is the status that is set directly when adding a publication platform to a story. You can set this yourself by switching to advanced platform settings. There you will find the selection "Default publication status". Here you can now specify which status will be set by default when a platform is added.
Please note that these changes to the status levels can only be done by admins. In case you do not have admin rights please contact your in-house admin.
