The product team here at Divvy is always looking for ways to remove a few clicks and interface transitions from our users' day-to-day engagement within DivvyHQ. With that motivation in mind, we developed a new feature that we call the "Quick Edit overlay". The Quick Edit overlay provides users quick access to a content item's pertinent details, the ability to edit those details, as well as view associated comments, attachments and tasks.
The Divvy Details
By single clicking on any content item, in any interface (except the Dashboard), you can bring up that content item's Quick Edit overlay. By clicking the green Edit Details option, the Quick Edit overlay allows users to make on-the-fly adjustments to key content item fields without having to transition away from the current interface.
You can also delete a content item within this overlay by clicking the trash can icon located in the lower left corner. To duplicate a content item within this overlay, click the duplicate icon (see image below) located in the lower left corner as well.
A user can transition to the content item's content editor screen from this overlay by clicking the orange Open in editor button. If the content item hasn't been marked as published yet, and it contains a deadline date, they can also mark it as published via the green Mark as publish button.
The Details Tab provides a majority of a content item's pertinent information, and when the Edit Details button is clicked, it also allows users to make changes to most of these fields.
The following fields are editable in the Quick Edit overlay Details Tab:
Once changes are made, press the green Apply button to enact the edits.
The Attachments Tab provides users the ability to view and work with attachments that are associated with the content item without having to dig into the content item.
A number within the Attachments Tab provides a quick way for users to know how many attachments are affiliated with the content item. Clicking on this tab will also show a list of the attachments present, with any associated preview images (if available). Clicking on the More option on any of these attachments will open a drawer for that item, enabling users to:
- Add an attachment title
- Add an attachment description
- View the file size
- View the file type
The Tasks Tab provides users a way to view details about task(s) associated to the content item without having to transition to that content item's content editor screen.
The Tasks Tab provides the following details:
- list of tasks
- task(s) name
- task deadline
- task owner
- 'mark as done' option
- edit task option (bring up task overlay)
The Comments Area is stationary and always present our Quick Edit overlay. This allows users to work within the overlay and keep comments from other users top of mind, while they make edits... quickly!
The Comments Area allows users to:
- view any comments associated to the content item
- add/delete a comment
- reply to a comment
We hope our new Quick Edit overlay brings even more efficiency to your content marketing process. If you have any feedback or enhancements you'd like to see for this new feature, please use the Feedback/Report a Bug button in the lower right of the DivvyHQ interface.
