New name for the universal list

    Hello all,

    As you (should) know, we introduced the Universal List as separate (and
    undocumented feature -- well, it's kind of self-explanatory) in 3.4. Its
    function is to list all articles regardless of their issue, section, and you
    can filter the view by date ranges, topics, authors etc. and it also allows you
    to perfom full-text search

    "Universal List" was a development name that doesn't tell much to the
    uninitiated. Now that the feature is mature, we should name it more
    intuitively. The candidates that come to mind are (and mind you it sits in the
    Content menu)
    1. Find
    2. Search
    3. Browse
    4. Search and browse (perhaps too long)

    Any bright ideas (and please think about possible translations)?

    All the best,

    Sava

    Another options:

    Navigation (Article navigation)
    View(s) (Article views)
    Explorer (Article explorer)
  • Article Filter?

    Everything else in the "Content" is named by what type of content it is:
    "Publications", "Comments",etc. So I would suggest simply calling it
    "Articles".

    Articles sounds pretty good to me. Simple is good. It'd be good to hear from
    Daniel as well, who's been poring over Campsite with a fresh pair of eyes.

    so i thought about:

    - dashboard
    - article dashboard

    but Paul's suggestion makes total sense. Articles it´s great and it translates nice and clear into SP.

    I would suggest:

    All articles

    as the new name, to differentiate the Universal List from the article view
    that you get when following the Publication -> Issue -> Section menu
    hierarchy.

    In my magazine editing days, I would not re-edit an article after
    publication - there was too much work to do for the next issue. So I would
    have used the menu hierarchy instead, to concentrate on the articles for
    the current issue in preparation.

    However, it would have been useful to an overview of 'All articles' when
    making cross-references to earlier articles, while subbing. Freelance
    writers would often miss the fact that a particular topic was covered in a
    previous issue. I'd trim that part of the article, and drop in a
    cross-reference, so that regular readers didn't get annoyed with
    repetitions. It proves that you read your own magazine :-)

    Cheers!

    Daniel
