To put it simply, WordPress users love Gutenberg. From the easy-to-find editing options to the customizable blocks, Gutenberg has given users a level of flexibility on front and back ends that wasn’t available with the previous editor. Users, specifically editorial and tech teams, now need fewer outside resources and don’t need to worry about congested workflows because they have everything they need to collaborate on Gutenberg’s single platform.
As if Gutenberg wasn’t great enough already, there is now a key player that is completely transforming the collaboration experience on the editor: Multidots’ latest plugin, Multicollab. The plugin has already reshaped how editorial teams execute their editing process by utilizing features that promote concise, meaningful, and results-driven feedback. With it, teams have been able to create higher quality content and close any collaboration-related gaps.
Ultimately, with the strides teams have been already able to make with editing and collaboration thanks to Multicollab, the plugin will soon become a necessity for every publishing tool belt.
What is Multicollab?
Multicollab is Multidots’ newest secret weapon for editorial teams that use WordPress to edit and publish content. The Google-doc style plugin creates a powerful ecosystem for teams by improving collaboration efforts with things like:
- Inline commenting on posts
- Instant email notifications for editing activities
- Adding comments to any post or media
- Assigning suggestions or comments to specific team members
- Adding in users from outside of your team to provide feedback
- An advanced dashboard to keep up with productivity and activities
Because Multicollab was designed to work exclusively with the Gutenberg editor, users are guaranteed a streamlined, seamless experience from the moment the plugin is installed and launched. Once it’s installed on your team’s side, you can work with Multidots’ Support to customize the plugin to fit your individual needs. Whether you need to support 70 contributors on your platform or find better insight into your editorial workflow, Multicollab can help you solve any issue.
How Multicollab Transforms Collaboration on Gutenberg
Gutenberg is great on its own, but Multicollab has taken it to another level thanks to its collaboration-focused features. Below are some major WordPress gamechangers that can only be found with the plugin.
1. Support Large Editorial Teams
The Multicollab plugin is one of the only resources out there that can truly handle large editorial teams without workflow interruptions. Users will find that with different filtering features and customizations, they can keep up with their entire team (even if there are dozens of contributors) and not miss a beat with project management!
A great example of this is with The MAPS Institute. They found how easy it was to get support for their team of 50 contributors and were able to get the plugin customized to fit their unique needs.
2. Easily Keep Track of Productivity and Team Progress
Multicollab’s Advanced Reports feature allows you to have better insight into your editorial workflow to make sure that all your team’s needs are met. With transparent data points and easy filtering, you can track progress across all your content and encourage conversation with your team members about your workflow.
This feature is especially vital for editorial teams because it ensures that all talents are being utilized as efficiently as possible. With it, you’ll be able to see the areas of your workflow that might need additional support, and even discover how you can better distribute work between your team members to keep them happy and constantly creating.
3. Close Communication Gaps
Multidots made sure that Multicollab didn’t lack anywhere in the communication department. With features like instant email notifications, comment assignments, and the ability to respond directly through WordPress, editorial teams now have no excuse to not know what’s going on with specific assignments, or to not respond to other members. Whether they’re on their smartphone or their computer, they’ll be connected at all times (unless it’s time for them to clock out for the day, of course).
With all of Multicollab’s communication perks, editorial teams can level up their culture around collaboration without using multiple resources. They can encourage team members to have open conversations and to consistently be involved with the creation process just by emphasizing on the plugin’s simplicity.
The Final Verdict
Because of everything Multicollab has been able to achieve for editorial teams, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. It has already steamlined Gutenberg and encourages teams to spend time creating better content with all its collaboration-focused features. Multidots has always been an organization to have tricks up their sleeves so users will want to stay tuned on how they’ll make Multicollab even more superior than it is now.
