At Zerys, we are always looking for ways to make the process of finding great new writers and adding them to your team as simple as possible. To that end, this update brings four big changes to the Writer Audition process that should make life easier for our users.


For agencies, Child Clients are now able to request revisions for Writer Audition jobs. The functionality is exactly the same as when Child Clients request revisions for regular jobs, so this will not require any extra training in using the system. We have also improved system behavior when a new writer is added. If you have several projects already set up with custom Favorite Writer lists, chances are that when you add a new Favorite Writer to your team, you do not want to go through those existing projects and uncheck the new writer. Now, you don’t have to! New Favorite Writers will only be checked in the project in which the audition was conducted, and in projects where all writers are already checked.


For both Agency and Marketer accounts, writers can now request deadline extensions for Writer Audition jobs, and their initial deadlines will be extended by 48 hours if the maximum word count is 500 or higher. Both of these features should help in getting high-quality, publishable content from a new writer right out of the gate.


The following fixes and improvements are also going live with this update:

  • Writers are now able to request deadline extensions for Writer Audition jobs

  • Writer Audition job deadlines are now calculated by word count so that writers will have 48 hours to complete jobs with a maximum word count of 500 or higher

  • Project Dashboard - Fixed a bug with Archived projects not displaying when the Advanced Search filter was set to “Archived”

  • Settings > Private Account Contact Info - Fixed several issues with contact info not displaying or updating correctly

  • Writer Audition Setup > Other Writer Requirements/Qualifications dialog - Fixed a bug causing the backspace key to create extra qualification fields

  • All screens > All tables - Fixed a bug where mousing over the column header tooltip text was causing the header to expand instead of showing the tooltip text


Agency-specific items:

  • Child Clients are now able to request revisions for Writer Audition jobs.

  • When adding a new Favorite Writer to your team, previously created projects with the Default Writer Assignment Method set to “Favorite Writer Job Board” will now behave thusly:

    • If the Favorite Writer list includes all writers (all writers checked), the new Favorite Writer will be added to the list and checked

    • If the Favorite Writer list includes some writers (some writers checked, some writers unchecked), the new Favorite Writer will be added to the list, but will be unchecked

    • If the audition was conducted in an existing project where the Favorite Writer list includes some writers (some writers checked, some writers unchecked), the new Favorite Writer will be added to the list and checked

  • Accounting / Financial Reports > Total Spent Per Client - This report now includes a “My Category” column that will list the category of each client in the report

  • Create New Project - When creating a new client on this screen, that client will now be automatically selected and the workflow will automatically move to the next step

  • Agency > Pending My Review > Content Review Screen - Fixed a bug causing an extra scrollbar in the content section


Client Portal Updates:

  • PWC > Topics > Keyword/Topic Research Tool - Fixed a bug with sorting by column header arrows

  • PWC > Titles - Fixed a bug where new titles were not showing on the table until the page was refreshed

  • PWC > Titles > Enter Titles One-by-One - Fixed a bug where the selected keyword was including its usage count as part of the keyword when a title was added

  • PWC > Titles > Title Brainstorming Tool - Fixed several formatting issues

  • PWC > Questionnaires - Fixed a bug where downloading the questionnaire was causing a server error

Service Provider Updates:

  • Submit Content Screen - Added deadline extension request button

  • Submit Content Screen - Fixed formatting issues when reporting clients

  • Writer Audition Instructions (All screens) - Fixed an issue with some attachments not displaying

  • Client Profiles - Fixed an issue with older PMB messages not displaying
