In computing, beta version is the term for an application (or an update of it) that has not yet been completed and fully tested. Although largely fulfilling the expected functionality, some functions may not yet have been fully implemented, and a beta version is likely to contain some bugs.
To see available beta versions of Mynewsdesk, you click on Settings (gearwheel in the upper right corner) and select Newsroom settings. Then you switch from the tab General to the tab Beta. Click to activate or deactivate a beta version. You can switch back and forth at any time and as often as you like during the beta period. The changes that you set in this section will affect all users of the newsroom.
