In this update:

Drag & Drop of dirico objects in the Gantt area in order to move the publishing date

In order to change individual dirico objects even faster and easier in topic planning, drag & drop has been implemented for all objects that are visualized in the Gantt area on the right. This allows you to flexibly move an object's date by clicking, holding and dragging it.

This way, you primarily change the date, while the time initially remains the same. Once you have repositioned the object, our time picker opens, where you can now adjust the exact time. If you want to keep the time, simply click Cancel (X) here.

Note: With active multiple actions (one or more objects checked), changes via drag & drop are not possible.

Editing the duration of stories, topics and events in the Gantt area

For topics, stories and events that last longer, you can also adjust the duration. To do this, click on either the start or end point of the object (in the pill) and move it either to the right or left, depending on whether the object should be lengthened or shortened.

Assigning a publication date in the Gantt area of topic planning

To quickly assign a date to stories and topics that do not have a publication period, you no longer need to open the detail view of the respective object.

To assign a time period place your cursor in the corresponding line at the desired (start) date and click your mouse as soon as you see a plus icon. The time period or end date will be assigned automatically and depends on which view (in relation to the time period) you are currently in:

  • Daily: end date will be set to 3 days after the start date.

  • Weekly: end date is set to 3 weeks after the start date

  • Monthly: end date is set to 3 months after the start date

  • Quarterly: End date is set to 3 quarters after the start date

More detailed sorting options in topic planning

The sorting options now adapt to the selected top hierarchy level of your topic planning.

If the hierarchy starts with topic categories, the sorting options are:

  • Created on

  • Title

  • Updated on

If the hierarchy starts with topics, the sorting options are:

  • Created on

  • End date (ascending, descending)

  • Start date (ascending, descending)

  • Title

  • Updated on

If the hierarchy starts with stories, the sorting options are:

  • Created on

  • End date (ascending, descending)

  • Start date (ascending, descending)

  • Title

  • Updated on

If the hierarchy starts with content, the sorting options are:

  • Created on

  • Due date (ascending, descending)

  • Publication date (ascending, descending)

  • Title

  • Updated on

Expand or collapse all objects of the tree structure

From now on, you can open all details from the topic planning with one click. Likewise, with one click you can view only the items on the highest hierarchy level.

You can find the corresponding option in the three-dot menu next to the Create button.

Create cross posts in the tree view of topic planning

In order to be able to create cross-posts to regular content (not stories) in the tree structure of topic planning, a corresponding option has been added to the three-point menu of content.

Similar to all other elements created in this way, cross-posts can be opened and elaborated in the sidepanel after creation.

Note: Please note that the option is available only in content that is not assigned to a story.

Sidepanel across all modules

The sidepanel, which you have known exclusively from topic planning so far, is now available in all modules in dirico where there is a detail view.

  • Dashboard

  • Task management

  • Ideas

  • Topics

  • Contents

  • Calendar

  • Events

The cross-module introduction of the sidepanel not only allows you to work more efficiently and on multiple objects in parallel. In addition, the introduction removes the restrictions on collaboration (tasks, approvals and comments) in the modal windows.

Note: The introduction of the sidepanel in all modules, and the fact that it opens automatically when you select an entity in a module, also eliminates the Default View section in Personal Settings. This was previously used to determine which view (modal or detail) should open in which modules.

Hierarchy information within the sidepanel

The hierarchy of a dirico object can now be viewed via a separate menu item in the side panel.

To do this, first open the side panel of any object and then select the lowest option in the menu item on the left.

You can also create new dirico objects via the element hierarchy. The creation is done by clicking on the Create button below the respective object or on the three-dot menu to the right of the respective element.

Note: The hierarchy tab is not available in all sidepanels, but only in content, stories and topics.

Pinning function for the sidepanel

To further facilitate your work in dirico, the sidepanel can now be pinned. The corresponding option can be found to the left of the close button in the sidepanel.

Once selected, the sidepanel will stay open until you uncheck the pin button and then click outside the sidepanel, click the close button or delete the pinned object.

As long as the pinning function is activated, the sidepanel remains visible. If you click on the title of another object in e.g. the topic planning and switch to a topic, only the content of the sidepanel will change.

Even if you change modules, the sidepanel remains in the respective module, so that when you return here, the open sidepanel is displayed.

New sorting function: Title

In some views within dirico, displayed results could not be sorted by their title until now.

The corresponding sorting option has been added in the following views:

  • Ideas: Tile view (to the right of the sort icon)

  • Topics: Tile view (to the right via the sort icon)

Hiding stories & content without dates in the Timeline view

Similar to the calendar, you can now hide stories and content without an assigned publication date in the timeline view with one click.

Just click on the calendar icon and the respective objects will be hidden.
