The Superdesk Planning Component is an editorial organiser that’s fully integrated with your journalists’ workflows and your customer-facing calendars. Setting tasks for journalists in the calendar triggers creation of the actual content items in Superdesk - saving your journalists valuable time in the field.
Kick-start your coverage
When editors assign coverage to a journalist, the content item will be automatically created in Superdesk, ready and waiting for them to start.
Cut down on admin
Calendar-event metadata are harvested from the outset and applied to the content your journalists produce, saving them from fiddly “admin” details when they need to focus on the story.
Include events from external sources
Ingest third-party feeds in the ubiquitous iCalendar format, as used by Google calendars, or json - or in custom formats.
Keep your team on track
Alert your reporters, photographers and stringers to any last-minute changes via Superdesk’s built-in notifications.
The Superdesk Planning Component is also designed to integrate with third-party software. Alerts, for example, can also be routed via popular messaging tools such as Slack.
Engage customers directly
Newshub’s powerful search capabilities allow you to find exactly what you need, with the option to use predefined filters or bespoke queries.
It wasn’t just Superdesk’s functionality that won us over, but also the benefits that come from being a part of a community of news agencies participating in an open source project. We can all share in ideas and new features that will help us become more competitive.
