The Edit Flow plugin is great for a WordPress site that is being used to publish a journal or newsletter/periodical or research project. It provides a framework to collaborate with team members and plan for issues. Its built in calendar displays article progress from pitch to publication. The editorial flow includes a record of all comments, and editorial metadata such as topic, first draft date, word count, images, etc.
After activating the plugin, you’ll notice three new tabs on your Dashboard, “Story Budget”, “Calendar”, and “Edit Flow”. There are eight components to Edit Flow which may be turned on or off. See snapshot below for brief descriptions of what each one does:
Each of these components can be configured to suit the needs of the team. You can customize what kind of metadata you want to collect, and what editorial stages you want to track. This is a very powerful plugin built for specific needs.
