combination of personal news and corporate news macros
A single macro for personal and corporate news. One stream necessary to see all news at a glance. Advantage of personal subscription in personal news and configuration in corporate news necessary. Mandatory subscription is not enough, because rule dependent content (e.g. location specific)is missing. only Corporate News is not enough on the other side, because personal subscription is missing.
Allow Microsoft Stream for video teaser
As a news creator, I want to be able to use a Microsoft Stream link to embed a video from that platform into a news teaser.
Better news feeds
The two feed macros, Corporate News Feed and Personal News Feed, are limited in their configuration right now. The idea is to give them more flexibility: new sorting options (most liked, most commented, trending) more layout options sections by category
Unsplash integration for news
As an editor, I would like have an unsplash.com integration for news teasers, just like it is already available for events.
Filter by language of news items in the News Center
The News Center gives an overview over all existing news within your system. In many cases, news exists in multiple languages. The idea is to add a filter for languages, so you could say "only show news items that are written in English". The default setting for this filter would be the language of the user, based on his/her locale. For this to work, news items would have to be tagged with the information of which language they are written in, which could be done by using the Language Manager app that we developed.
Blueprint Creator Linchpin Integration
It would be great if the Integration for Blog Posts Blueprints could be adapted: make the fields mandatory delete single parts change description
Positioning of the Like button at the top of the page
As a user I would like to be able to like a news item without having to scroll to the bottom of the page. To make the Like button even more eye-catching, it is larger and can be individually adapted to the CI.
Make metadata in Cover Stories more "responsive"
Currently it can happen that News Categories/Spaces and Comments/Likes overlap in an ugly way. But they could both be in two different lines so both will have enough space.
Higlight brand new cover stories
A function to highlight the brand new cover stories. For example with "NEU" flag like in attached screenshot.
As a user, I want to be notified when news are added to my subscribed spaces
Right now, a user will not get notified when a new blog post has been published in a subscribed space. This is only possible if the user watches the space blog using Confluence core functionality. Getting both (subscribed news in cover stories/news stream AND notifications) is therefore quite cumbersome. Many users are quite frustrated. So I suggest that a user can not only subscribe to spaces, but also decide on a space-by-space basis wether he wants to be notified if new posts are published.
