Last week we rolled out our largest ever update to PressRoom so far. Although the majority of the updates were to the back-end of the system, there are a number of updates that you can now take advantage of.
Improved News Archiving
We’ve updated the archive system in PressRoom so that the news can now be easily filtered by month and year.
New preview viewing
In the previous system users needed to log into the PressRoom service to view any previews. We’ve now allowed users to view a press release before it’s published with out the need to log in, allowing higher management or related clients to view the release without the need to set them up as a PressRoom user.
The url shortening service, Bit.ly has been added to the “Service Accounts” section of PressRoom. This service allows you to automatically create a short urls for your press releases.
Improved Media Section
Media attached to a press release can now be viewed as a slide show or cycled through by the reader.
Categorisation available to all
The categorisation feature we developed for Pentagon is now available upon request for all PressRooms. More information about how the categories work can be read on the Pentagon blog post. If you would like the categories feature applied to your PressRoom then please get in touch.
We would love to hear your thoughts on how the PressRoom service can be further improved and we will look to add your ideas into our updates schedule. Work is already underway on a number of other features we hope to implement soon.
