Welcome to your tool for magazine planning — fast and efficient.
Coping with a pandemic interrupted the rhythms of everyone’s work life. Together, despite the challenges, we’ve produced excellent editions of the Regional Telco Magazine. One thing we’ve heard, however, is a desire for additional help planning the magazines.
After all, everyone is busy. And WordSouth is committed to helping in any way possible.
The goal: Create an interactive resource
View story ideas, update story plans, track deadlines and, ultimately, save you time.
You share a Monday board with your WordSouth Assistant Editor, who helps produce your magazine.
Each magazine has its own “group” with a line for each local page of the magazine
Along with your Assistant Editor, you may move stories between issues, add to an idea pool, and get a long-range view of multiple issues.
Target dates to complete planning are clearly noted.
Need to send a quick note about a story? Just click on the little “dialogue balloon” on the line with the specific story to open up a chat option.
Add notes about a story such as contact information or key details to the “notes” field.
Once you’re happy with a plan, under the “Approval Column,” change the label from “Pending” to “Approved.” That signals WordSouth to go to work.
NOTE, and this is important: Once magazine production begins, the group for that specific issue, and only that issue, will be locked. That way, there’s no confusion after production starts.
