One of the two new modules is called K4 KickOff. Browser- and technology-agnostic, it conveniently connects various vjoon K4 modules and third-party solutions by way of a central client. The second new module, K4 Drop Folders Advanced, makes it easier to import articles, for example, from a Web CMS or Word documents. And a new function named Batch Start Workflow expedites multi-object workflows.

Featuring a state-of-the-art UI, K4 KickOff is the new dashboard for everyone tasked to work on content, says vjoon: writers, editors, project managers and production staff. Easy to handle, K4 KickOff frees publishing staff of many of the constraints imposed by technologies at the user level.

The new vjoon K4 client connects the K4 Overview, K4 Web Editor, K4 File Manager and K4 Admin modules to a central hub, regardless of what browser happens to be running on the computer and without having to enable Java in the browser. It also accommodates third-party solutions such as JournalDesigner and Timone page planning systems, or email clients.

According to vjoon, K4 KickOff readily adapts to the customer’s requirements. Icons, titles and descriptions may be replaced and the startup configuration can be set up as the user sees fit when the client launches.

The new K4 Drop Folders Advanced module automates the routine for importing articles. It converts text-based file formats such as .doc, .docx and .txt into HTML or ICML on the fly during the upload. The integrated customisable wrapper assigns objects, uniform structures and formats for downstream editing.

This means that users can automatically port articles that were drafted in programs such as Wordpress and Drupal to vjoon K4, add styles as they see fit, and edit content faster.

The new Batch Start Workflow feature accelerates the workflow for multiple objects in a layout. One command is all it takes to launch a workflow for all selected objects. This streamlines and speeds up routine tasks to lighten workloads.

vjoon K4 Version 8 R1 is available now.
