Posts Module

Share news, announcements, and updates


Posts encompass various forms of content such as blog posts, company memos, newsletters, and weekly updates, among others. They are a convenient alternative to traditional means of communication like mass emails, printed flyers, and internal mail, as they are easier to create, share, and reach employees regardless of their location. Moreover, the digital nature of these posts inherently fosters employee engagement through social actions like commenting, reacting, sharing, and analyzing post analytics.

In this guide, we will discuss the Posts Toolbar, Post Widget, Types of Posts, and the steps you will take in creating your very own Post.

Click to create a post, view drafts, or schedule a post

New Post - Click on the New Post option to display the Share A Post pop-up and create a new post. For information on creating a post, click here.

View Post Drafts - Click the View Post Drafts option to display the Posts That Have Draft Versions pop-up and view all your posts saved as drafts. You can choose to Edit, Publish, Duplicate, Delete, Copy a Share Link to, and Send a Review of the draft version of posts.

While, normally, drafts are only visible to the user, draft posts saved by domain/intranet admins are visible to other domain/intranet admins.

View Scheduled Posts - Click the View Scheduled Posts option to display the Posts That Have Been Scheduled pop-up and view all your posts that you have scheduled to be published.

  • Network admin/intranet admin only. You have the options to Publish, Edit, Discard, and Review scheduled posts. When you click the Publish button for a scheduled post, it will be immediately published to the team, regardless of the original date and time set for publishing. Additionally, you can click on the Copy Link option to share a link to the scheduled post with your team members. However, when non-authorized users attempt to access the post through the shared link, they will see a message indicating that the post has not yet been published.

Sending a post for review will not prevent the post from publishing at it's scheduled time. However, the editor can select a new schedule date for publishing.
