New! DNN Sharp’s Modules + EasyDNNNews Integrated

You don’t have to say it, I will: we’ve been bad at posting regularly here. It’s not that we haven’t wanted to create great content for you to read... We’ve just been really busy making our products more awesomer. Don’t fear, however! New, amazing content will be coming your way...

We’re always working to improve our products experience, and one of the biggest ways that we can improve is to release more add-ons that allow for more integrations and customisation.

So today we’re jazzed to welcome the newest member of our integration family. Please give a warm welcome to EasyDNNnews Add-on.

Quick? Simple? We’re definitely down with all of that jazz over here at DNN Sharp and so we’re pretty darn delighted to bring EasyDNNnews on over to our integration party!

EasyDNNnews Add-on

Who Are The Guys?

Action Form, Action Grid, Sharp Scheduler, DNN API Endpoint on one side (no need for introduction, I know that) and EasyDNNnews.

EasyDNNnews is a very powerful DNN module that enables non-technical users to publish and manage articles, news, press releases, stories and editorials.

Why So Good Together?

Creating forms, grids, automated tasks, APIs with our products is easy. Publishing articles, news, press releases, stories and editorials with EasyDNNnews is easy. Put them together and you have an interactive two-way communication platform between our modules and EasyDNNnews to create, manage and display fully-fledged articles, events, files on your DNN portal.

Stacked With Features

We did our best to create an add-on that should give an awesome experience. Not only do we think it looks great, it comes with a number of flexible tuning options. If I had to draw your attention to a few "important" highlights, I'd encourage you to focus on:

  • Article Management

EasyDNNnews Add-on is shipped with actions that allows you to: Add Article, Update Article, Get Data from Article, Publish Article, Unpublish Article, Delete Article.

  • Event Management

Write your articles now, and let them be displayed to the public later or recurrent. Whether you want to Attach an Event to an article, or to Add Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly Recurrences, EasyDNNnews Add-on has you covered.

  • Article Attachments

EasyDNNnews Add-on allows files and photos to be uploaded and attached to articles by means of two actions: Attach Photo, Attach File.

  • Complex Workflows

EasyDNNnews Add-on can post or get data to/from EasyDNNnews module automatically, in complex workflows.

  • Responsive Templates Available

While Action Form makes it easy to build most forms in a few minutes, it's not necessary to build your form completely from scratch.

  • Conditional Action

You can write conditions that will determine at submit time whether the EasyDNNnews actions will get executed or not.

  • And dozens more...

Important Note

EasyDNNNews Add-on is shipped free for all App Sharp and Web Sharp clients that have the option with Add-ons and an active subscription, so there’s no reason you shouldn’t be trying it out.

Just head on over to My Downloads section on our website or My Downloads section on store.dnnsoftware.com.

Final Takeaways

One of the coolest parts about our modules is that they make a great middle man for other platforms or modules. There are already loads of excellent integrations between our modules and other platforms. Just take a look at the Add-ons section of Action Form for example. That section isn’t an exclusive club. Absolutely anybody can build an integration and get onto the Add-ons section.

High-fives all around to our colleagues Daniel and Diana for their hard work on this integration! Many thanks go out to the Mayaco crew for making the development of this integration possible.

Heck yeah, we did it! Let us know if you have any questions about using our modules and EasyDNNnews together.
