We know how important it is to work closely with your team and clients so we created Collaboration! The easiest way to work together to create, approve, and post beautiful content. Here’s a quick guide to get started, we're also happy to walk through this together if you'd like to schedule a call.
Contact Sked to enable Collaboration.
Once it’s turned on, Settings will be the best place to start. You’ll see the following default statuses have been added to make things easy.
From here you can edit the labels (status names), colors for quick visual queues, and add/remove statuses to meet the unique needs of your team. You can have as few or as many as you'd like.
Collaboration will be managed through the Upcoming Posts Page. Once you create content it will be auto-assigned your default status. From there your team can update statuses accordingly, from marking ready to review all the way through to approval. Once content is approved there’s no additional work required, it will automatically go live at the time you’ve selected!
One last item to note on this page is the Collaborate menu item on the right-hand navigation next to each post. This is a specific thread for each individual post. You can write messages to your internal team here, see status change history, and comments left by your customers when a post is rejected on the External URL.
- Quick tip: The customer comment is italicized so you can quickly see why the content wasn’t approved.
If you’re using Collaboration for client approval by external customers (those without access to Sked). You can generate a live URL for each customer on the Collaboration Settings Page.
Meaning if you keep everything consistent, account(s) you’re approving content for as well as the rules you’ve selected to display and approve content, the same URL will keep updating as new content meets the enrollment criteria (such as ‘Needs Review’).
After selecting ‘Create Link’ select the accounts you’d like to include and follow the prompts to display, approve, and reject content. Here’s an example:
From there, send the link to your clients for approval of mobile friendly views of each post across all social platforms. Here’s what they’ll see. They’ll have the option to ‘Approve’ or ‘Reject’ and will be prompted to leave a comment if a post is rejected for any reason.
One last thing! If you have any existing upcoming content, make sure to mark it with the ‘Approved’ status to ensure it goes live as planned.
