Control center – A quick access to promotion and publishing

Spend more time on managing your business and less time managing your paper 

One of our goals at paper.li is to allow you to spend as much time as possible on the core of your business while still having a stellar web and social presence. We do that most of the time by introducing new features, but over the coming weeks, we’ll introduce several improvements to clarify our settings and help you manage your papers faster. The first one is the introduction of the Control Center.

With the Control Center, you can quickly access some of the most important publishing and promotion controls on your paper and have a quick overview to see if they are set up the way you like. It will not affect any of your settings, but all features related to publication and promotion are now conveniently found in one place. We’ve also renamed them slightly to make them simpler to understand.

Publishing Settings (draft and publication schedule)

This is the core of your paper: update your paper with new content automatically or keep 100% absolute control over the publishing process creating a new edition offline (draft) while your current edition is still online. Learn more about manual publishing (previously Draft Mode).

Promotion Settings (notifications control)

Decide if paper.li should promote your paper and top articles automatically with each edition. Set as manual, it allows you to decide exactly when to send the tweets, posts and subscriber emails. Learn more about manual promotion (previously Notifications Control)
