Content Categories option added to the RSS Automation

RSS is a web sleuth that detects new content whenever it gets pushed onto a website. Many social media tools have embedded RSS readers that dig out the content from different sources and present them to you in a single place.

Version History in Composer

Mistakes could happen at any end and from anyone. The admin oneself could also make a mistake and sometimes another team member points out that mistake. That is the perk of working together in a team. You work together to make the best possible yield of your product or anything for that matter.

Keeping all this in mind, we have introduced this feature in our composer. It helps you to check your work one last time before finalizing it.

You can set any of your saved versions as your "Current Version" and restore it.

Word & Paragraph Count - Composer

This feature is a complete blessing and all the bloggers who write word specific blogs can feel me on this.

Sometimes, when you’re writing a blog, you have to take care of the word limit. There are some SEO factors or other contributing factors which require you to write lengthy articles. One other possibility is, let’s say, if you work as a writer for some company, and they give you a word limit with each title. Then, you need to keep a check on where you’re taking the length of your content.

Editing Rights While Blog Post Composition

Teams work together efficiently when each member resonates with their team and everyone is on the same page. For example, you’re composing a blog post and you have assigned your team members different tasks like adding relevant images, optimizing the blog post or reviewing the post for grammatical errors. While you’re working on the blog post, the team members won’t be able to access your blog post unless you grant them permission to do any kind of activity there. If you’re working, the team member can ask for access permission by clicking on the Lock button, as shown in the image below.

A pop-up window will appear where the team member can request access from you.

If your screen is idle and you’re not doing anything, you can give them rights to perform their assigned tasks. Otherwise, you can decline the request and carry on with your work.

'Force Take Over' Control If for some reason, the initiator is not allowing you access rights, you can take control by the Force Take Over option.
