What are account groups

By default, Sked sorts your accounts (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn) by alphabetical order.

You can use 'account aliases' to adjust the display name of a particular account – in the past, we have seen some customers use this to group accounts together by adding a number to override the ordering.

We've launched account grouping to make this easier and more visually distinct. With account groups, you can put all of the profiles for one brand or location into a group to make it easier to select when you upload:

Any accounts not in a group will show up below the account groups like in the screenshot above. If you have no groups set up - no worries, they'll just display as normal.

How to set up account groups

First you'll add the group name then type an arrow like "->" (without the quotation marks) then how you'd like to display the account.

Let's take a look:

Here's how to do it step by step. You need to set up each account, and make sure that you use the same group name each time, or the accounts won't be grouped.

  1. Go to your social accounts page from the dash.

  2. At the top, you'll find the 'Display Name / Account Grouping' box. This is where we enter the new display name for the account. You can click the "Show Info" tool tip view the instructions here too.

  3. In the Display Name / Account Grouping box, put in the group/brand name you want, then type -> then type the display name for the account. Fee free to cut/past from the show info tip and replace with your preferred names.

  4. The name will save automatically

You might use the display name of the account to just be the username, like in the screenshot above. Other customers use "Instagram" vs "Facebook" and similar to differentiate each platform – the choice is yours!

When you want to post to all accounts under one group, simply tick "Select all NAME" to include all accounts when creating a post.
