Stories are the main organizing principle in your FLOW site. Each story can be assigned to one or more Assignment Types and can be organized within one or more Story Filters.
An Assignment Type is a label for the type of work that's required for a story to be completed, such as Writing, Photography, Video, and Design. You can create as many Assignment Types as you like, although you really only need a few. We also have prepopulated several common Assignment Types for you.
A Story Filter is a label to organize your stories. A Story Filter can include sub-segments, as well. For example, if your Story Filter is called "Section", you can have several sub-segments for that filter housed within it, such as "News", "Sports", "Entertainment", etc. Again, we've prepopulated several common Story Filters for you.
A Key Editor is someone who will always be assigned to a certain story, based on the chosen Assignment Type and/or the Story Filter. Think of Key Editors as people that should be always be attached to a certain type of story, such as a Copy Editor for Writing pieces or Video Editor for Video pieces. When a story is assigned to an Assignment Type or a Story Filter with a Key Editor, those Key Editors will automatically show up on the list of users to submit to. You can set Key Editors in the Settings page within Assignment Types and Story Filters.
