Are you using the editorial calendar software Desk-Net to plan your stories and to manage your editorial department?

This plugin connects your Desk-Net account to one or multiple WordPress sites. Your story lists and related meta-data such as statuses are synced both ways between the two systems.

Two main use-cases are supported:

  • Planned content: A post is planned and enriched with meta-data in Desk-Net. Based on this Desk-Net automatically creates a post in WordPress. Subsequent changes in either system are synced instantly.
  • Breaking news: A story originates as a post in WordPress. The plugin sends relevant data to Desk-Net ensuring the story lists are complete.

The following meta-data is synced:

  • Slug and description
  • Publishing date and time
  • Statuses
  • Categories
  • Author emails
  • URLs of either system
  • The plugin supports the Gutenberg editor.

Please note that you need to have an account in Desk-Net to make use of the plugin.
