Other workflows

Viz Pilot Edge can be used in other workflows in addition to the newsroom workflow, which is the main focus in this user guide.


The NLE plugin for major craft editing systems also support the web-based fill in form technology. Viz Pilot Edge can be opened from the graphics plugin, and the same interface is available in the craft editing system. Viz Pilot Edge is only available for handling graphics in this workflow.

Templates in Viz Pilot Edge vs. Viz Pilot News

There are no methods for migrating templates from ActiveX based templates used in Viz Pilot News to HTML based templates used in Viz Pilot Edge. It's not possible to handle a migration since the technologies differ too much. The suggested approach is to recreate templates one by one over a period of time.

The Template Builder, which also is bundled with the Pilot Data Server, is a tool for creating complex templates. The same functionality that Viz Pilot News templates have can be achieved by applying separate javascript code stored on any web server. This requires re-coding of the templates.
