A one-stop shop where you can assign, collaborate, and track article progress

Make writing articles a team effort. Keep on top of content that needs to be updated or new processes that need to be added by divvying out assignments to team members.

Assign, collaborate, write, and track the progress of articles all without leaving ScreenSteps. This reduces the number of emails sent back and forth and ensures the whole team knows the status of an article throughout the publication process.

There’s no “i” in author management

Writing content for a team isn’t a one-person job. Break up assignments for writing articles and training materials.

  • Assign permissions

  • Collaborate with revision notes

  • Restore previous versions

  • Track your progress

1

Assign permissions

Some authors need access to all of your articles. But some authors should just have access to a few articles that match their areas of expertise. 

Reduce confusion by assigning employees to be responsible for the "next step" of specific articles. By assigning authoring permissions, you can involve your best content creators while still maintaining privacy and control for more sensitive content.

Collaborate with revision notes

Optimize your articles using tools that make collaboration easier. Provide clear and concise feedback and edits for your teammates.

Leave notes and suggestions where they are formatting the articles so that it is easier to communicate and make changes.

Restore previous versions

Never fear accidentally deleting important content from an article. At any time you can go back to previous versions of your article and restore them to your knowledge base. 

That means you don’t need to worry about losing information in the collaboration process.

Track your progress

Never lose track of an article or who’s responsible for it. As your team updates an article, you can mark it with a status so you can easily track its progress.

Know if it is in the beginning development stage, needs an update, needs to be reviewed, or is approved for publication.

You can also filter articles by status to quickly view ongoing assignments.
