What are account groups
By default, Sked sorts your accounts (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn) by alphabetical order.
You can 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 in the first box and then you can add a label for your account to appear within Sked in the second box. Click save. Use the same group name for other accounts in order to add them to the same group.
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.
Go to your social accounts page from the dash.
At the top, you'll find the 'Group Accounts in Sked' 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.
In the 'Group name' box, put in the group/brand name you want
Type the display name for the account in the second box.
You might use the display name of the account ( the username), but 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.
