London 2012 Editorial Workflow2012
Editors working at Reuters during the London 2012 Olympics demand an efficient workflow for managing and curating the thousands of pieces of content coming in from photographers and editors. Working with my team at Phase2, we designed a process which allowed editors to quickly manage existing content they were assigned and easily create new, engaging content pieces from retrieved assets using a Content Builder.
The content builder integrated with the Reuter's CMS as a slide-out drawer that allowed editors to quickly search for the best content to attach to each story. Editors could quickly distinguish between different types of content, filter their searches, drag content directly into their WYSIWYG editor, and save searches to reuse later.
We also created a CMS dashboard that gave editors access to workflow status, review and approval notices, and lists of content locked against edit. Assigned sections were optimized for each user, and they could quickly search through any content they had editing access for.
