We’ve been hard at work working on finishing up the next version of Write Aid! The major update overhaul will feature a brand new design, improved site functionality/usability, and loads of new features and enhancements that will help you streamline your writing and article management.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any feature suggestions or ideas you’d like to see in the next version.
Writers can now save article drafts to store article ideas and save partially-developed articles.
Articles with saved drafts will be displayed with a blue icon on the Articles page.
If there are no available articles for writers to claim, they can now request to be notified via email when new articles are added and made available.
We’ve just added the feature to be able to select a Due Date, or deadline, for articles to be submitted by. If the article deadline is missed and is not submitted by the end of the due date, you will receive an email notification with the article details.
You can also review the number of missed deadlines per writer under the Performance report.
We’ve added a new report type: Performance
This report will track the number articles that are Timed Out (articles that aren’t submitted within the selected timeframe) and total number of Rejections. This will help you monitor your writers performance and activity.
You can also limit the maximum number of articles that writers can claim at one time. Just visit the Writers page, edit the writers profile, and input the Max Claimable option. This will only allow them to claim up to the limit you set per writer. In order for them to claim more articles, they must either submit their currently claimed articles, or unclaim them.
We’ve now added support for markup syntax when submitting and editing articles!
The acceptable tags are: headers [1-6], bold, italic, bulleted list, numbered list – there’s also an article preview button.
We have also added in a Preview button on the Submitted articles area so you can preview the full article.

We’ve just updated the article submission process to better handle the inclusion and checks for your required keywords in your writers’ articles.
With the old process, you could require a singular keyword but the system would accept pluralized or other various versions of the keyword. It would then produce an error when trying to insert the HTML link into your article because the exact keyword wasn’t found.
We have fixed that problem so now the EXACT keyword will be required to be present somewhere in the article. Also, we’ve improved the error message so now your writers will know which keyword is missing or isn’t being accepted.
Hopefully this small update will have a big impact on the system ease of use and your writers productivity.
