Strapi has just released its latest version, Strapi v4.14, with major new features aimed at enhancing your digital content management experience. In this blog post, we'll take a look at two standout features from this release: Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) for Review Workflow stages and a new Rich-Text Editor with Content Blocks (Alpha).
The default Strapi text editor is an incredible asset, providing robust markdown support that empowers users to create content with ease. While there are some limitations when it comes to handling inline media embeds, it's worth noting that markdown may pose a slight challenge for content editors and marketers who aren't deeply familiar with it.
Now, Strapi offers users the wonderful ability to choose their preferred rich text editor from a range of plugins like CKEditor 5, React MD, Toast UI, and Editor.js. This flexibility ensures that you can edit and format your content precisely the way you want, whether you're a developer or a content creator.
However, to offer a seamless, integrated solution, we're happy to introduce a new field type called Blocks for JSON-based rich-text editing. This addition aims to simplify your content creation process while maintaining the flexibility you love about Strapi. In it’s alpha version, Content Blocks will allow content editors to:
Overtime, Content Blocks will offer a more intuitive and user-friendly interface enabling users to easily rearrange paragraphs in a drag-and-drop fashion and use Notion-like shortcuts to manage content.
The ability to review workflows directly in Strapi has been a highly requested feature by content teams operating in regulated industries. This new feature introduced in Strapi v4.11 not only ensures the content's quality and accuracy but also enhances collaboration, efficiency, and user engagement while mitigating risks and providing valuable data for decision-making.
This new feature available in self-hosted Strapi Enterprise and Strapi Cloud Team plan has received a few major enhancements since then including:
Today, Strapi is happy to introduce Role-Based Access Control for individual stages of Review Workflows. Permissions at the stage level enable admin users to decide who should be able to move content to the next stage in a workflow. In other words, granular control over permissions for team members at each review stage. This means you can fine-tune access rights, ensuring that team members have precisely the level of access they need throughout the workflow. What’s in it for you? Enhanced security, ensuring data security and quality and smoother collaboration for more efficiency.
One excellent example of utilizing this new feature is in a content publishing scenario. Let's say you have a content creation team consisting of writers, editors, and approvers.
But that's not all! To further improve your Strapi experience, we've added some nifty features to Review Workflows:
