Working on a publication within a Brand is a dynamic process: current or new issues need to be planned while published or outdated issues need to be made inactive.
Managing publications this way is typically a task of a Brand manager. In Studio, new issues can be created while existing issues can be modified and/or deactivated.
The Issue Manager
Managing Issues in Studio is done in the Issue Manager.
It consists of 3 areas: (from left to right):
- A list of all Brands that you have access to
- A list of Issues for a selected Brand
- The Properties panel
Figure: The Issue Manager.
Accessing the Issue Manager
From the Apps menu in the toolbar, choose Issue Manager.
Figure: The Issue Manager Application is accessed through the Apps menu.
The following is needed to access the Issue Manager:
- You need to be assigned to a User group that is part of the Admin Authorizations of a Brand (with either limited or full admin rights).
- You need to have an Access Profile assigned in which the 'Planning' option is enabled (found under 'Applications', see Access Rights).
Creating a new Issue
Step 1. Click Create new... .
A window appears containing all the properties for that Brand. Which properties appear depends on the type of Publication Channel that is selected.
Step 2. Fill out the relevant properties.
Step 3. When done, do one of the following:
- Click Create & close to create the Issue and close the window.
- Click Create & continue to create the Issue and leave the window open to create another Issue.
To modify an Issue, select it and change its properties in the Properties pane.
To deactivate an Issue, do one of the following:
- Right-click an Issue and choose Deactivate
- Select an Issue and in the Properties panel clear the Active check box
Issues that have been deactivated do not appear in Studio. To make these active again, use the Issue Maintenance page in Studio Server.
