Seeking advice for a workflow solution

joe 1 year ago updated 1 year ago 4

We're looking at making  move to a more streamlined content management and publishing system. I'm not sure if I'm using the correct terminology there. We're happy with Town News. But currently, we spend a lot of time at our organization discussing story ideas, assigning them, editing, etc. We're looking for a tool (Have I missed this as part of Town News' offerings?) where a writer can be assigned a story/or choose from a selection of topics, receive a deadline, submit the story, allow an editor to be assigned and then, ultimately, schedule a post to BLOX. Or some similar process. Is anyone familiar with a tool that will help us manage/automate the publishing workflow? 

Hello, Joe

Thanks for taking the time to submit a question using the TownNews customer forum. We appreciate your feedback. Is your site currently using BLOX or BLOX Total CMS?

Hi! Thanks for getting back! Just the BLOX, I believe. 

Thanks, Joe

BLOX Total CMS is a multi-channel print, web, and mobile publishing solution. Once enabled on the hosted BLOX site, TCMS provides expanded tools for newsrooms, including workflows and assignments. Both of these expanded options, I believe, can help manage your publishing workflows. 

Here's a link that provides an overview of BLOX Total CMS: 


I'd be happy to schedule a demo for you and your team and discuss our available options.

Hi Cody,

That's clarifying. Thanks for the info! I'm checking out the article you posted and will circle back on the demo if it looks like a good fit for us.

Happy holidays,
