Have you ever wanted to see a nicely packaged summary of everything your newsroom did today? As an alternative to staring at activity feeds all day long, what if you could have a synopsis of the things that matter emailed to you at the end of each day?

For managing editors looking to get caught-up on the birds-eye view of their staff’s efforts, Camayak is the #1 place to go because it automatically combines assignments with collaboration updates and editorial calendars. That’s great if you’re a full-time editor who can respond to real-time prompts, but what if you’re part-time and have a million and one other things to do?

The staff at the Kansas State Collegian asked us to send a daily email to their contributors that contained all the available assignments they could claim, to keep them engaged without overwhelming their inboxes with updates. This is the beginning of a daily newsroom pulse that we’ll be adding to over the coming weeks, with other key signs of activity and engagement.
