Statusbrew’s Planner enables you to visualize and manage your social campaigns. Whether you’re on a large team and need to collaborate more effectively, or you’re a one-person-show and want to see all of your planned messages at a glance, the Planner gives you the big picture and allows you to manage each individual post.
This article will walk you through the Planner to help you conveniently view and manage all your scheduled posts in one location. You can view all your scheduled and published content, create new posts, and, approve, organize, edit, or delete existing ones with easy views.
To navigate to the Calendar, click on the Publish tab. Then select the Planner at the top of the left navigation menu.
Planner offers three separate views: List, Calendar (Week) and Calendar (Month). Toggle between these in the upper-right of the Planner.
The List view allows you to view the Planner in Comfortable or Compact View from the Settings icon on the top-right.
The Calendar view is available in Week or Month views.
On the Top of the Planner, you can customize the date range. By default, it is set to:
- 14 days starting today for List view
- Current week starting last Sunday for Week view
- Current month starting 1st of each month
Click on the arrows beside the < date range > to go back or forward.
You can click on Today to come to current date's posts at any point.
On the left on the Planner, you can apply filters to view the required content.
You can add multiple filters by:
- Profile - view posts for a particular profile
- Team Member - view posts created by a particular user
- Tags - view posts with a tag applied at the time of the creation
- Post Type - view posts with Needs Approval, Rejected, Published, Scheduled, Failed, or Drafts status
- Category - view posts assigned to a specific category's times for scheduling
These filters work in all the Planner views.
Managing scheduled content
List view is best when you want a good sense of the order in which your posts will be published.
The posts show the scheduled times (category or custom) with the creator name, followed by the profile, media preview, post content, and actions.
On the left of each post, the colored icons represent the status of each post:
- Yellow icon - needs review
- Green icon - published
- Red icon - failed
- No icon - scheduled
At the top under Needs Review, you can always see Posts that need your attention, such as Needs Approval, Failed or pending Drafts. This section is visible when corresponding posts are available, and otherwise hidden.
Posts under Approval allow the following actions:
- View details
Under needs review section, All Posts contain Published and Scheduled posts for the defined date range in chronological order.
Scheduled posts allow the following actions:
- View details
- Send now
While Published posts allow:
- View details
- View external
Note: Deleting a Published post from Planner will also delete it from your corresponding social network.
You can also perform Bulk Actions on posts in List view to Delete, Approve or Apply Tags.
Week view allows you to easily identify gaps on a day-by-day basis within your Content Calendar.
Click a post thumbnail to expand the preview, view status and get corresponding actions.
You can drag-and-drop a scheduled post in Week view to reschedule its date and time.
Month view allows you to see your complete content strategy in place for each day of the month with posts across networks, enabling you to spread posts apart more effectively and add or remove content to form a more well-rounded social strategy.
Just as the week view, click a post thumbnail to expand the preview, view status and get corresponding actions.
You can also drag-and-drop a scheduled post in Month view to reschedule its date and time.
When in the Planner List view, you can Export the List as PDF to share your plan with your team or clients from the settings icon on the top right.
