Recent System Updates 4/27/17
Happy Thursday! After our last batch update, we received lots of feedback from users about features they would like added to the system, and we are very happy to report that several of them have already made it into this batch. The two biggest changes are both aimed at saving you time, both when setting up a new project, and while managing it later once it’s in full swing with a Favorite Writer.
First, we have removed the “Give this Project a Name” step from the Writer Audition Setup, and projects will now be automatically named based on the content type and date the project is created. Project titles can still be changed to whatever you like, but are usually inconsequential when trying to get through a Writer Audition setup, so this change should make that process a bit simpler and faster.
Second, we have added a new feature to the Settings screen which will allow you to automatically approve deadline extension requests from Favorite Writers. Oftentimes our users work with their Favorite Writers for months or even years, and build a productive and trusting relationship with them. In situations like that, certain things are a given, such as writers only requesting deadline extensions when they really need them, and clients being happy to provide their writers with a little extra time to finish their work. In the past, if a Favorite Writer requested a deadline extension that would be a no-brainer, you would receive an email, and then need to login to approve the request. If the request came in after-hours, the writer might be waiting with the job on hold for hours or days before knowing where they stood with their deadline. By enabling this feature on the Settings screen, you will allow the system to automatically approve any deadline extension requests from Favorite Writers. You will still receive an email letting you know that the deadline has been extended, but you no longer need to take the time to extend it yourself.
See below for the full list of new features and fixes that went live today.
