RIP Metadata Manager :(

I just read the newsletter and Sara’s post regarding Deprecating Metadata Manager, I admit I was a lil bit shocked and sad with the news since I am a huge fan of Metadata Manager:)

However, I’m sure that whats coming next it is going be even better!

Is there a date to release this new tool? Dois it have a name already? I am all curious about it now:)

Hi @BrunaErlandsson -

We’ll be incorporating the new tool into the new member center, which we’re calling My Crossref. We don’t have a release date just yet. Our hope is to have a new tool in place before Metadata Manager is deprecated, but our approach will be iterative and we’ll deliver features as we complete them. We’ll order features strategically - solving the most pressing problems and/or handling lowest hanging fruit first. That is to say, what is delivered before the deprecation of Metadata Manager might not be a wholesale replacement of everything Metadata Manager does.

We’re gathering feedback and sharing progress over in this post. I’m hoping to have a progress report out in the next few weeks on the things we’ve been working on, so watch that space.

Is ‘my Crossref’ really the name? It sound like an annoying insurance or mobile phone company portal!
