Define user(group)s that are allowed to view and edit planned news in workflow spaces
As of the latest Release of Linchpin Enterprise News, there has been a change in the permissions for news in workflow spaces (and for good reasons, we won't roll that back ;) ). Now any planned news is only visible for the author and - in case there is an approval workflow - the editors. But not for other authors in said space. In many cases that's okay. But sometimes there's a group of authors who need to work together and see each other's news while those are not published yet. For those cases, there could be a configuration option per space. Similar to defining the editors for approval workflows, you would be able to define a group of authors who can view and edit each other's news within the workflow space.
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.
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.
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.
Allow users to make sticky news disappear after reading
A sticky news can be frustrating for people who already read it as it blocks other more recent news. The ability to hide sticky news or put them in the chronological order would be helpful.
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
Fixed height for Corporate news feed
Almost every customer are wishing this. If you have 2 corporate news feeds side by side the height won't match since some has longer titles, some has pictures and some not. It would be perfect if you can determine fixed height for this.
Personalization of mandatory news
This would let you make news items mandatory only for users whose profile attributes match certain criteria.
