Release Notes: DocumentCloud accounts for everyone plus entity extraction beta and scheduled publication
It’s been a while since we’ve published release notes, but we have a lot to share, including improvements to our crowdsourcing Assignments tool and a number of new DocumentCloud features.
This week, we upgraded older document embeds on MuckRock and released a small timesaver for DocumentCloud users.
One of DocumentCloud’s marquee features has always been the ability to embed documents within articles and other webpages. Now you can embed whole collections of documents for readers to browse.
DocumentCloud has historically offered its users the ability to upload documents in many different file formats. The latest upgrades to the DocumentCloud Beta bring this functionality to our new platform, allowing users to upload nearly any document file with ease.
We’re three-quarters through migrating newsrooms over to the upgraded DocumentCloud platform, so we wanted to take some time to walk through what we’ve learned so far and what newsrooms need to know for a smooth transition. The video of our discussion last week — including Q&A time where we answered burning questions — is below. We also upgraded MuckRock’s servers to offer a faster, more responsive experience.
