Roundtable: Customer Enhancement Forum for editorial/mobile
Do you have questions about the Customer Enhancement Forum and how it works? We can go over how to enter requests and how the forum works. 
Also, are there things you have asked for NCS to develop that you feel could benefit other NCS customers? Are there elements that aren't working as expected? 
Bring your wish list for any editorial product. 
=======
The latest from NCS: We are working our way through the CEF requests already submitted. In addition, the key deadline dates are as follows:
  • NCS Content 2018-2 – List needs to be compiled by 1/15/2018
  • NEP – List needs to be compiled by 2/15/2018
  • ONSET – Since this is rapid release, it is harder to pinpoint dates for specific versions. So I would like to see a list by 6/1/2018, and we will try to incorporate their submissions in the next release – just can’t predict what number we will be at by that point in time.
  • We are also packaging up a Maintenance Release dedicated to Lite Editor/Reporter Client that will be going to select beta customers this year. That should be GA by the first of next year. Lots or requests come in for LE/RC. So hopefully the group will see that as good news too.

Reducing publishing costs: How can you do it?
How can sites reduce publishing costs? Are there alternatives to Adobe apps? Digital First Media is working toward eliminating the use of InCopy; Gatehouse is using Lite Editor with plans to move to ONSET; and there’s Content Planner to help reduce InDesign licensing. European workflows include doing partial layouts using layout geometries. If there is time, we can cover other things within InDesign that can help the production process, including scripting.
