In addition to its editorial and graphic functions, Méthode also promotes fast, efficient teamwork between users, even at different geographical locations.
An important coordination feature is the shared planning space in which multiple projects can be initiated and monitored. In a single workspace users view and coordinate the entire lifecycle of a project from initial ideas and notes to final publication.
The planning space can be used in a top-down manner for assigning a project, or as a bottom-up mechanism for authors to propose coverage.
A shared planning space gives high visibility to projects and proposals and their linked assets, keeping all those involved on the same page.
As each item passes through the stages along its workflow path, those involved in the next step receive a message that there is a task waiting for them.
Notifications work across all Méthode interfaces –including remote users accessing Méthode through the web or tablet apps.
