Updates to the Socialdraft Calendar
As you probably know by now, Socialdraft works on a three week release cycle. Whenever a user sends us a request for a new feature, these get put into the development schedule under one of these three week cycles. Today, we’ve released a few requests from some of you. If you have a request for our team, simply click on the support area on the bottom right hand corner of our site, and let one of our reps know so they can submit it for consideration. Best of all, there is no increase in pricing with any of these features, so you can enjoy them at all membership levels.
*****One thing for those of you using Socialdraft. When you first log on, clear your cache. This will ascertain that everything works properly. Check out the video below to see the updates to the Socialdraft Calendar in action.
This is a list of the new updates to the Socialdraft Calendar:
Updates to the Socialdraft Calendar
Page and fan tagging on Facebook
This feature was requested by Jacqueline. She wanted to be able to tag all the business pages across her organization. It works pretty simply. This works just as it does on Facebook. Simply type the @ symbol followed by the page name. Socialdraft will do the work and find the page for you. You will know the page is successfully tagged when it changes color(the page name is highlighted) as seen in the example above. We figured while we were at it, we also work on tagging fans, so that feature has also been pushed out during this release.
Bigger is better, especially when you are checking out your social media posts and when you need to edit them. That’s why previews are now
big, huge, ginormous. Thanks for the suggestion Carrie!
Gifs for Facebook
How awesome is that! You can schedule gifs to both Twitter and Facebook on the Socialdraft dashboard. And by Facebook we mean you can schedule gifs to your personal account, your Facebook business pages, and groups you manage. A great way to increase your engagement. This one was not a suggestion, but gosh darn it, we love gifs, so we did this one for ourselves.
How to Schedule a gif To Twitter: Simply upload your GIF as you would a regular image.
How to Schedule a gif to Facebook: Facebook does not allow direct uploading, so you need to use a link.
1. Enter in the gif link in the write up area http://big.assets.huffingtonpost.com/facebookgif.gif (1MB)
2. Let the link preview load
3. Remove the link from the message
