The WireNews module provides an ideal overview of the wirecopy newsflow. The WireNews module is directly connected to the Articles and SAXoTEXT modules, in which wirecopies can be edited and turned into fully formatted articles.
Simultaneous handling of wirecopy from several news agencies.
User configurated wirenews alarm, alerting
the user about important wirecopy.
Search facilities (text and ID-no.) provide easy access to wirecopy with specific contents or ID-no.
The WireNews module is one of the editor's primary tools. The newsflow in the form of wireco-pies received from news agen-cies is controlled from here.
As in the other modules this module consists of an overview with an attached menu.
The overview is divided into logical areas, making wirecopy operations easy and simple. From here wirecopies can be opened directly within SAXoTEXT and turned into fully edited articles. Moreover, it is possible to compile several wirecopies into one article.
Controlling the Newsflow
At the bottom of the overview a list shows the incoming wirecopies from one or more news agencies.
All important data on the wirecopies is listed, i.e. arrival time, category, title, slug, and the size as standard bodytext. In addition, the list shows whether the wirecopy has been processed and by which user.
The contents of the list are controlled by the specific preferences selected by the user (i.e. the contents of which folders in the WireNews system the user wants to see), how far back in time the user wants to go when looking at wirecopy. The contents of the wirecopy list are constantly updated allowing the user to keep track of the latest news.
In the menu attached to the module the user may set up his own WireNews alert, alerting him about incoming wirecopies at a given priority.
Full text search and search by ID-no. Finally, the module provides text search among the chosen wirecopies as well as search by ID-no.
Inhouse NewsAgency XTra By means of an XTra selected wirecopies may be distributed to the users at the editorial office.
The overview of the WireNews module provides clear and simple functions, facilitating and easing daily WireNews handling.
The list, which is continuously updated, shows all important data on all wirecopies, including the user who has made the most recent alterations.
The list may be put into monitoring mode, which means that the overview is hidden. The contents, however, are continuously updated, ensuring that the list always is up-to-date.
