Social Advocacy Tools


Employee social advocacy provides the ability to share approved posts from MangoApps to social media channels like LinkedIn and Twitter. A company can make employees their brand ambassadors who promote approved posts externally on their LinkedIn & Twitter social networks.

Social Advocacy has the following tabs:

  • Settings: Admins can enable social advocacy in their company.

  • Social Post: You can view the list of all posts on which advocacy is enabled by the creator or admin.

  • Insights: You can view the insights of the posts created. You can view the details of the count of social posts, active ambassador details, top social posts, top ambassador details, total click-through count on the post, and many more details.

  • Public Appearance: You can preview the social advocacy post before sending it to the audience or before publishing it. You can customize the logo, background color, header color, link color, and footer content. Mobile and web preview is available.

Admin control to turn on social advocacy channels

In Settings, network admins enable the sharing of posts on social channels by tuning in the advocacy for their created posts. Admins can now set up a user segment/list of authorized users to enable social advocacy on posts.

  1. Go to Social Advocacy and click Settings.

  2. Turn on LinkedIn and/or Twitter options to share content on respective social media handles.

Note: By default, these settings are enabled for both LinkedIn and Twitter.

  1. Authorized users are those users whose content is approved, and whose content is available to employees to share on social platforms. Admins can now set up a user segment or list of authorized users to enable social advocacy on posts. The user segment/list of users doesn’t need to be the post creator to enable social advocacy on the post.

Note: A maximum of one user segment can be authorized. Additionally, any number of individual users can be added.

  1. Click Save if you have made the changes to save the settings.

Audit Log Entry

When the admin changes the authorized user's list, the audit log entry is recorded.

Go to Domain>Logs>Audit to view the audit log entry.

An audit log entry will also be created when an authorized user turns social advocacy ON or OFF on a post.
