Rules Based Automation ("Rules") allows publishers to automate tasks to simplify their workflow. Rules are created by Administrators (AA) and executed by Administrators and selected publishers when saving a Story .

For example, a Breaking News Rule could be applied when publisher is writing a breaking news story. Upon selecting the Breaking News rule and saving the story, the tasks associated to the rule will execute automatically. These actions may include the assignment of the story to the homepage and news page as "Breaking News – Col 2/3", to other pages as a "Top Story" and to notifying the news director that a new story was created.

„U Rules can only be executed on Stories at this time.

¡@

 

1. Hold your mouse over Admin.

2. Click Rules.

„U Affiliate Administrators (AAs) have access to create and manage Rules and associated Tasks. They have the ability to grant Rule execute permission to specific Publishers when creating a new Rule or an editing an existing one.

Getting Started

Producer Menu - Rules

Rules (Listing Page)

When you click on Rules, you will go to the Rules listing page, which will contain the Rules created for your site. Toggle between All, Active and Inactive Rules by clicking on the hyperlinks to change the view. WorldNow ProducerRules Copyright 2000-2011 WorldNow 5 / 22 Confidential and Proprietary

You can change the status of the Rule, Edit or Copy a Rule, sort Rules by Rule Name, Created Date and Last Modified Date from the Rules listing page.

„U For added convenience, the listing page will remember the last "show items per page" value you selected if you update the number of Results shown per page from the default of 50 items per page.

„U The listing page takes advantage of many new browser advancements including: dynamic rendering and real time updating (paging, status, and delete). Older browsers are not as efficient with dynamic page manipulation and as a result browsers like IE7 may lag more than modern browsers would.
