Create a publication

To create a publication, go to Content > Publications. Here you'll find a list of all publications in your Prepr environment.

To create a new publication, click on ' Add publication'. Select a publication model. Now the publication is created and you can starting composing your publication.

Managing fields and drag-and-drop elements

The shown fields depend on the publication model settings (see also Managing publication models). Each field can be required and can have a help text to help your editors use this specific field.

Select channels

When you finished your publication, you can now add this to a channel. Channels can be used for touchpoints or webpages. See also ' Channels: publications per touchpoint'. This option is only visible when 'Enable channels' is selected in a publication model.

Select stories

When you want to make a collection of publications (for example around a certain theme), you can add your publication to a story. Select the story and click 'Add'. See also ' Stories: collection of publications'. This option is only visible when 'Enable stories' is selected in a publication model.

Choose publication time

After composing your publication, it is time to decide the time to publish it. Select a publication time: default is current time, but you are able to publish it in the past, and also schedule it in the future. Select the Archive time to unpublish your publication automatically.

Select an assignee

The publication will not be assigned to an editor automatically. When your publication needs a review from one of your colleagues, assign this Prepr user.

Select the status

Prepr supports a Kanban workflow. New publications will be created with the status 'To do'. When you are composing the publication, you can manually switch the status to 'In progress'. 'To review' is the status when a publication needs a final 'go'. And the status 'Done' indicates the publication is ready to be published. The status 'Archived' can be used for unpublished, old or draft publications.

On your Prepr dashboard you will find a Kanban view. Here you can see which publications have been completed, what is being worked on and which publications still have to be written.
