Subscirptions - make it more user friendly
We were looking into make subscriptions easier reachable. Therefor we would love the possibility to add a Subscribe button to every space or page without the need to add macros and set labels specified to the news shown. So the process for subscribing is more user friendly and involves less clicks.
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.
As a user I want to be informed about news while not having linchpin open. -- Modern browsers offer a notification api to push notifications to the users OS desktop. You can see this on many websites today.
Make personal news subscriptions more flexible
Right now you can only add news from certain spaces to your personal news subscriptions. A greater flexibility would allow you to subscribe to certain news categories or news from certain authors.
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
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.
Configurable waiting time for mandatory news
Right now, if you click the "read later" button, the mandatory news appear again after each page reload. It would make more sense if it appeared again a day later or maybe if the duration of that time would be configurable by the admin. Derzeit erscheinen die Pflichtnachrichten, wenn man auf "Später" klickt, nach jedem neuen Seitenladevorgang. Dies macht wenig Sinn, die Pflichtnachricht sollte erst am nächsten Tag wieder erscheinen oder ggf. für Admins konfigurierbar sein, in welcher Frequenz diese wieder aufscheinen.
"Spaces by category" macro - Allow category selection with AND
If I select "by category" in the Spaces macro and then enter several categories, this is interpreted as an OR offset and all Spaces that correspond to one of these categories are displayed. However, I would like to have an AND link between the categories so that only spaces that correspond to all categories are displayed.
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.
Do not hide approved news after editing
If an author wants to add more content to an approved blog post and then edits, the news disappears back into *ENB-Space and is not visible to non-author and non-editor users any more. It would be great if the post would remain published in the last approved version until the new version was approved.
