  1. Limit autopackaging?

    It seems almost everything is being autopackaged by HK--even Yahoo Finance video snippets. This is time consuming and adds extra steps to the programming process b/c we package videos to run all night.

      • Filters for Lists

        If you just have the name of a list and not the uuid it's almost impossible to find lists like "Sport" in PnR because we cannot see any filters in the collection menu. Please allow filters like "Region" or "Property.

        • Ability to delete multiple packages at once

          is there a way to delete more than one package at a time? it would save a lot of time.

            • Mobile alerts/notifications feature

              Rather than having to use a separate tool to alert content to our mobile users, we could greatly streamline our workflow -- and improve the speed of those alerts -- if we were able to alert a story/blog in PnR upon its creation.

              • Master engagement/related links tool

                Give users the power to have a one-stop shop tool that puts engagement links in the middle and at the bottom of articles, and have that carry over to all stories within a specific property (like Ball Don't Lie or Shutdown Corner) for a designated time period.

                  • Give editors and writers a way to block publishing a story early

                    Sometimes a story is extremely time sensitive or embargoed. There should be a foolproof way for a writer or editor to block publishing until the correct time. It's all too easy for others in the process to publish something by accident.

                      It would be helpful to be able to write alternate heds in the package itself rather than having to go to destination and click on tool.

                            • Do away with cloning

                              Instead of cloning stories so they appear in different silos, make it so that each page can simply be added with the click of a button, so that a builder can add News US Politics NeedtoKnow to the list of stories that show up when you hit FP EN US, for example.

                                Too much great original marquee content gets bumped down too quickly. Editors should be allowed to "feature" more than one story (I would say 3 or 4 max)

                                  Because multiple builders grab images from photo sites, we often have the same images cut for multiple stories. We should enable PNR to recognize the photo codes and prevent the use of the same image.

                                  • include a Schedule button instead of a Publish button for scheduling.

                                    In the current system, you have to set the date and time for the story to go live in WP, then go to PNR to finish scheduling. The final step is to hit Publish to finish scheduling. That button should say Schedule rather than Publish to avoid confusing new users.
