Creating a new article in Content Station 9 by importing content from another Publication Channel

Info: This feature requires Content Station version 9.5.0 or higher.

In a multi-channel workflow, the same story is used in multiple Publication Channels.

However, each Publication Channel has its own rules and restrictions, such as text formatting, writing style (especially headlines), article length (restricted for print, 'unlimited' for Web), image quality (low for Web, high for print), and so on.

As a result, a story that is published for one Publication Channel cannot be directly used for another Publication Channel (think of Web versus print). However, much of the content of a story that is used in one Publication Channel can very well be used as a basis for creating the story for use in another Publication Channel.

For this purpose, such content can be imported when creating a new article in Content Station.

Example:

A Publish Form for a Web story contains the following components:

  • A title
  • An intro
  • A body
  • Various low-definition images

A new article is created for print by importing the following components from the Web story:

  • The title
  • The body text

Once the article is created, additional article components and high-resolution images are added as needed, the title is re-written in the style for the print publication and the length of the body text is adjusted to ensure copy fit.

The content of the Web story is un-touched.
