Point

Improved mega menu functionality

Improvement

Sticky menu

Sticky menu allows the menu to be anchored to the screen so that our end users have all the menu items at hand when scrolling through the pages.

Organise with columns and titles

Mega menu now offers the possibility to better organise the display of available pages. Including the possibility to add titles and have more control over the column organisation. This is especially useful for portals with complex navigation structures.

Page preview

Searching by pictures is sometimes easier than by text. Admins of Point have the possibility to add page preview images in the mega menu and make user experience much more convenient.

DAM view usability improvements 

Improved layout for filter bar

Improvement

The left-side panel filters in the Point DAM view have undergone a few enhancements for improved usability. 

Filters, including tags, objects, categories, extension, date etc. are now grouped by type for simpler organisation. For types with many filter options, wrapping view is enabled with the option to search or show more tags for simple usability.

Or /And selection improvement

Produce

(Released 18th April 2024)

Unit Manager integration 

New feature

Produce integrates with enterprise unit management systems storing employee details to differentiate between different user groups. This includes region specific addresses, phone numbers, brand names and more. With this information, content management within templates that are being used across the organisation can be created automatically and more streamlined for the end user.

Limit access – Templates 

New Feature

Admin rights assigned in templates now are specifically assigned to individual users and user groups. This makes templates and their documents private between different admins and users.

Limit access – Documents

New Feature

Users have the option to create documents and set them as private until they wish to share them publicly. When marked as ‘private,’ only the author and admin can access the document. When set as ‘public,’ it becomes accessible to all users with read/edit permissions on the respective document. The default for newly created documents can be set in the Template settings.

Improvement

Additional details such as size in pixels, description and duration (in ms) are now shown for each new banner document created when using the banner module stencil.

From one banner document users can download versions for various Demand Side Platforms (DSPs) including Adform, Xandr, Delta and Google Ad Manager. 

Template tags

Plan

(Released 14 May 2024)

New Feature

Find campaigns easily through the new search bar or filter functionality. 

Save quick-views

New Feature

Users have the option to search for a subset of campaigns using the filter functionality. This can be saved as a quick-view on the left-hand panel or shared with a team member. Users may save multiple views to their personal left-hand panel for easy access to campaigns relevant to them.

Campaign groups

New Feature

Admins can group multiple campaigns together under a single title, helping to better organise and structure larger projects. Group view can be customised based on locations, departments, or teams, allowing users to remain focused on relevant campaigns and activities. Admins are able to store a single campaign within multiple groups granting separate access for different types of users.

Bulk import and export campaigns using XLSX files

New Feature

To provide enhanced data handling capabilities within the application, users have the option to bulk import and export campaigns via XLSX files. 

Importing external files involves selecting a file and manually mapping columns to campaign elements in campaign templates or selecting an import type for automatic import where pre-created mapping rules are determined. 

When exporting items, users select desired items through filtering or manual selection and initiate an export to generate an .xlsx file where campaign activities are translated to columns.

Custom elements for campaign templates

New Feature

Admins have the ability to generate custom elements within campaign templates containing fixed drop-down options. These options remain uniform across all campaigns created from that template limiting users to a fixed set of input options.

Custom elements can only be modified by admin users and any edits, for example adding a new input option, will automatically apply to all instances where the custom element is used.

Asset metadata approval process

New Feature

Asset metadata and exif data, including camera brand, type and shot information, are available as asset details within the Papirfly platform. This information can be automatically synched or manually added when the asset is uploaded. 

To ensure accuracy, all aspects of the metadata can then be entered into a review workflow to be reviewed and revised by the original uploader through Plan Approvals.
