What is Superdesk?


Superdesk is a powerful workflow management tool for newsrooms developed by Sourcefabric. It was built from the ground up to be an extensible, end-to-end news production and distribution platform. Superdesk is a collaborative tool for curating, sorting and publishing news with contributors from around the world. Superdesk can be integrated with any number of third-party newsroom programs and legacy systems.
With an intuitive user interface, Superdesk makes the life of newsroom staff easier by removing the complex underlying technology and enabling journalists to focus on creating and producing high-quality content. With Superdesk, all of the newsroom tasks are brought together in one platform. Publishing across multiple media outputs is also possible.

Superdesk enables multiple users (journalists, editors and administrators) to collaborate within the same application, at the same time. All users are able to search and read the available content, but roles can be assigned to limit the actions of specific users. Superdesk has a customizable interface in which all the user roles and departments are configurable.

Superdesk has a native publishing extension known as Superdesk Publisher, as well as a plug-in which allows you to publish to Word Press. You can read more about those here.
