Calendar view of posts
In addition to being able to see all your posts in the Post Library (For more information on navigating the post library click here) you can also view your posts in a calendar format in the Post Calendar.
All of your Published posts will be displayed on the Calendar in green. This includes any posts created by you or through AutoStream that have been published to at least one social network. You can view the post details including text, images and links for the post and post activity. With Published posts you have the options to View in library and Republish. For more information on republishing posts click here.
All posts that have been auto-scheduled with AutoStream will be displayed on the Calendar in blue. You can view the post details including text, images and links for the post and the scheduled post time. With AutoStream posts you have the options to Unpublish or Edit the post. When you unpublish a post it will be removed from your Calendar and put in Draft status. For more information on editing posts click here.
All posts that have been scheduled by you will be displayed on the Calendar in yellow. You can view the post details including text, images and links for the post and the scheduled post time. With Scheduled posts you have the options to Unpublish or Edit the post. When you unpublish a post it will be removed from your Calendar and put in Draft status. For more information on editing posts click here.
There are three display options to allow you to view the calendar by day, week or month depending on your preference.
View by Day - Click Day to view posts for a single day. For each post you will see the post status and post content including text, images and links. If you have selected multiple social networks for a single post you can see the text for each network by hovering your mouse over the social icon.
View by Week - Click Week to view posts for a week at one time. For each post you will see a thumbnail with the post status and post content including text, images and links. For Published posts, hover over the posts to see the post activity. Click on the thumbnail to see a pop up with post details and post options.
View by Month - Click Month to view posts for the entire month. For each post you will see the time the post has been published or scheduled. Hover over the post to see a thumbnail with the post status and post content including text, images and links. Click on the thumbnail to see a pop up with post details and post options.
The Calendar will default to displaying the current day, week or month depending on the view. To change the date(s) that are displayed on the calendar you can use the date selector. Click on the date selector, which shows the current date(s) being displayed, and a calendar will drop down. The current week and day will be highlighted.
Click on the date that you'd like to view and the calendar will be updated to display posts for that date. If you are using the monthly (or weekly) view, clicking on any date in the period you'd like to view will show the entire month (or week) that includes that date. For example, clicking on Thursday, April 19, 2018 will show the monthly calendar for the month of April 2018 and the weekly calendar for April 15 - April 21, 2018.
