You can customize any project in Oroson to be tailored to your team’s workflow. By adding sections, a project becomes clear for all project members. You can add sections to ask people for feedback, to show version control, or even to annotate content publishing dates or types. Using sections is extremely flexible so you can mold the project to suit your needs.
In this article, you will learn:
Manage and Create Sections
When you kick-ff a project in Oroson, you will be asked if you'd like the section layout of the project to be row or column view. Once you've made your decision and the project is created, the first section will be added automatically.
Adding a new section
When you’re ready to add new sections, you can simply select the + between the sections and a new section will automatically be added to the project.
Naming and Renaming Sections
If you’d like to rename a section, you can simply click on the header above the section and begin typing. Oroson will automatically save the name of the section.
If your sections become jumbled or you’d like to reorganize the layout of the project, you can easily do so by following these steps:
Select the settings gear near the section header
Select the arrow next to ‘Reorder’ to choose the direction you’d like to send it
Switch the Section Layout View
If you decide to switch the layout of a project after creating it, you can easily do in the project settings, just follow these steps:
Select the settings gear in the top right corner of the project
Select the layout of the project
Examples of Sections
When getting started with your first project, you may be curious how other teams have used sections to add clarity to their projects. Here are some examples from our customers:
The most common ways teams use sections is for versioning. The first section typically includes notes and a brief and all following sections have to do with version numbers. When using sections for version control, users typically use the column layout.
Video Review Process
Users that create videos regularly follow a specific workflow including the brief, brand guidelines, script, audio, storyboards, and then the video assets. Each section needs feedback and approval before the video can be published.
Teams that work in sprints and have to publish material in cadences use sections to denote dates or time periods when items will get published. Many podcast and social media content teams use this approach.
Creative Review Process
Teams that follow a specific process when creating adverts build sections that fit that workflow. They usually start with the brief and then add some competitor information. They review the copy and then the creative assets. Each section needs feedback before finally being approved.
Teams that work on large projects with different types of assets use the sections to denote asset types to make it easier to locate the right file when need. They create columns for videos, images, documents, etc.
Projects that have multiple stakeholders and need approval from different teammates benefit from using section headers with the appropriate approver. For example, if you need approval from your department head then the chief and finally the CEO, you may create columns for each person. Your sections can provide an appropriate workflow to ensure a clear overview that all the right people give their approval.
Noting directions and decisions
Another common method for sections is using the headers to dictate what needs to be done and what is complete. Once again, users typically use the first section for notes and then have the following sections to discuss what needs to be done, past versions, and what has been approved or rejected.
These are just a few examples of how teams use Oroson to improve their project turnaround time. Since Oroson is completely customizable, you can decide which workflow works best for your team.
