Features of Quark’s Browser-Based Tool for Structured Authoring

QPP NextGen’s web browser authoring tool features a bevy of powerful features to help automate the creation, organization, management, publication, and reuse of structured, modularized content. They include:

  • Modularized content: Author structured, dynamic content components that contain auto-generated XML, such as sections, paragraphs, lists, tables, charts, and images, for easy assembly and omnichannel output.

  • Guided authoring experience: Format different content components with a unique-yet-consistent property structure, so authors always populate them correctly (e.g., a procedure section could include a title, description, steps, and substeps).

  • Metadata and taxonomy: Tag content with read-only or editable metadata at the section, paragraph and character level to add critical context and meaning, safeguarding security and compliance and making it easy to locate important content assets.

  • Compliance validation: Create customized content validation rules to ensure that terminology complies with regulatory guidelines or that required sections or topics are included (e.g., legal disclosures).

  • Real-time, omnichannel previews: See how content will look across numerous channels, with a comprehensive preview as well as previews at the page, section, and subsection level, reducing review-and-approval cycles and optimizing the author experience.

Simplify Complexity with Key Office 365 Capabilities
  • Tables, charts, graphs and lists: Generate tables, charts, and graphs from Excel or other data form, including preconfigured table templates. Ordered, unordered, and nested lists are also supported.

  • Images, video & interactive elements: Enhance your content by adding video, audio, slideshows, animations and more.

  • Component tracking: Know which components are being used, what content uses each component, and understand content engagement from inside the authoring tool.

  • Component pinning: Pin certain content components to prevent them from dynamically updating across every document that uses them (e.g., fund performance on a specific date).

  • Hyperlinking and cross-referencing: Easily create hyperlinks to other documents and resources, or cross-reference other sections of the same document.

  • Content review and comparison: Collect and review all feedback to determine which changes to keep or reject, and compare versions of the same document in a simple “track changes” view that clearly shows who made what changes and where.

  • Version control: Keep track of all changes made by editors and easily revert to old versions of content at any time.
