The Publish tab is where you will find the Calendar of outgoing owned posts in Engage. From the Calendar view, you can easily identify potential gaps in your content calendar. You can edit and schedule drafts, duplicate and copy posts, and review multi-media attachments.

This article will cover:


Navigating to the Calendar

The Engage calendar is found in the Publish tab of Engage.

  1. Click the Engage drop-down

  2. Select Publish


Calendar View Overview

The Calendar view shows you all of your scheduled drafts, scheduled posts, published posts, failed posts, pending posts, and mobile posts. Check out the advanced options below available in calendar view:

Filter Options

Along the top toolbar within the calendar you have multiple filter options.

Filter by Social Profile

Use the account picker to select the handles you would like to see, it will default to all handles selected.

Filter by Content

Use the Content drop-down to filter the posts by All, Approved, Assigned, Assigned to Me, Rejected, or Unassigned.

Filter by Tags

Use the filter drop-down to select the tag(s) of the post you would like to view.

Calendar View

The calendar will default to the week view in the timezone set in your profile settings, but you can easily view your calendar in the monthly or stacked view.

The Stacked view offers a more compact view of all posts each day by removing hour blocks on the calendar and instead putting everything in chronological order.

Download

You can download the calendar content (posts) into a CSV file or print to a PDF. Select Download and open the file once ready.

Post Options

If the post is in draft or scheduled, you can Delete, Duplicate, or Edit the post directly from the post within the calendar.

If the post has been published, failed or pending, you have the option to duplicate the post.

Drag and Drop

Drag and drop calendar content to schedule or reschedule.

Post Status

The state of a post is easily identified based on the color in its heading. A legend at the bottom of the calendar identifies each color.

This tool bar also filters the calendar for content by status. Simply click on the icon.

Selecting a Post

Selecting a post will show you the Post Details, where you can review the status, content, and tags. You can also see the details of the post, such as when it was created and by whom. For scheduled posts and drafts, you can delete or edit the message.

Workbench

The calendar features a workbench slide-out on the far left-hand side for actioning drafts and approving posts.

Drafts

You will find all unscheduled drafts under Drafts. From here, you have the option to edit the draft, or you can use the drag-and-drop feature to schedule the draft directly on the calendar.

Assigned

This is where you will find any posts that have been assigned to you for approval or if changes are needed.

Needs Changes

If a post has been rejected and/or there has been a status change to your assigned post - the post will appear here.
