Trello Features and Power-Ups Used In This Template
To publish this high volume of content, The Telegraph editorial team can’t spend their precious time moving cards around and double-checking that the right information is added to Trello cards.
In order to keep up with the hustle and bustle, The Telegraph team leverages Trello features like Butler and Power-Ups to automate and power their workflow.
The Telegraph team uses four Butler rules to manage important aspects of the workflow so content doesn’t clog the pipeline.
- When cards are added to the “Ideas & Watching” list, they receive a default date of 5 pm on the day for which it is added.
- When cards are added to the “Scheduled” list, a Butler rule is set up to automatically move the cards to the "Published" list when their due date arrives.
- Once the card reaches the “Published” list, a Published Date Field is added by Butler and the Due Date on the card is marked as completed.
- At 2 am every day, all cards on the “Published” list are automatically archived.
The Calendar Power-Up is enabled on this board to give the editorial team, writers, and any other staff members involved in the process a visual understanding of when articles are due.
The Custom Fields Power-Up is used on each card to give quick and visual information about the Writer, Fee, and Word Count for every article.
