Editors can manage stories in the Apple News dashboard.
Chorus automatically publishes stories from selected communities to Apple News—Apple’s curated, fast-growing platform for iOS and MacOS devices.
If your community is connected, you can use the Apple News dashboard in Chorus to send notifications, update stories, and correct issues with failed stories.
Search the dashboard
Start by navigating to the Apple News dashboard, by selecting the Quick Admin (gear) icon from your homepage. Select Editorial, and then Apple News.
From there, you can filter articles by published time or by status, using the dropdown menus on the left hand side. Or, you can paste in a story’s URL to search.
Notify and update
Apple enables notifications on a case-by-case basis. If your channel is set up to send push notifications, you can message people who follow it via iOS. Find the related story in the dashboard and select Notify. You can customize the text of the notification before sending.
To view sent notifications, use the drop-down menu on the right side of the dashboard to filter by Notified.
When you update a story in Chorus, the changes should automatically appear on Apple News. If you are making any larger changes, such as edits to your Apple News template, select Update on recent stories to get them to reflect the change.
If a story has failed to appear in Apple News, check the Chorus entry and resolve any platform warnings. Then locate the story in the Apple News Dashboard and select the Failed status to view any additional errors.
Once errors have been resolved, select Retry from the dropdown menu. The story may take up to five minutes to appear on Apple News.
More Apple News options, such as promoting a story to the top of your channel, are available in iCloud. This is managed outside of Chorus, so reach out to your network’s Apple contact for help.
Find additional resources in Apple’s News user guide, including recommendations and best practices for notifications.
