#6. Improved quality control
Quality control gets a boost with the spellchecker now highlighting errors without being in edit mode. With many outlets using the scripts as closed captioning, you now have more eyes able to see errors and quickly fix them.
New adaptions in the character generator controls allow users to change a series of CGs or just one instance of CG with one-click adjustments instead of adding another element. Not only is it faster, but it appeals to other workflows or dayparts needing that same graphic. Fewer CGs to type in reduce the risk of errors.
You no longer have to go into the guts of a system to make a simple adjustment to CG templates, whether accommodating a new logo, time/temp bug, or just tweaking the look. Users can make minor edits in synchronized CG templates. Now it is possible to change the position of the fields in the template and set the template background.
#7. It’s planning enhanced
Feedback from some of the busiest assignment desks and planning managers worldwide worked with us to improve the performance of the planning functions. The new layout, mixed with user groups and individual customization settings, gets information to the right people but doesn’t bog down the whole staff with unnecessary information.
Rundown forms can be adapted on a story assignment basis, not just a rule for the entirety of folder entries. Attachments to planning calendar items are now visible on the main screen, removing an additional step to view them. You can also print an assignment element with all attachments in Octopus 11.
