How to post:
When clicking Post, there are two options:
- Yes, announce will post to the feed and get sent instantly via email to everyone in the group. Announcements are also highlighted in the Feed with a special announcement badge.
- No, just post will post to the feed and be sent to members based on the group's default post settings (Instantly, Daily Digest, or Never).
*Note: Announcements are only available on paid plans.
Here's a post with the Announcement badge:
How to add and use Hashtags (#):
When creating a Post, using a hashtag makes it easier for users to find specific relevant content and categorize messages. Use hashtags to search all the community content with the same subject.
When adding a hashtag, existing hashtags will appear after typing # and then three (3) letters. If no hashtags exist with those three (3) letters, pressing Return/Enter after typing the new hashtag creates it and adds it to the Post.NOTE: Punctuation and spaces are not supported in hashtags. When adding a hashtag, do NOT use a space as it prevents it from being created. Instead, use capitalization or the underscore “_”. For example, #HashtagsAreGreat or #hashtags_are_great
Editing a post:
Find the Post in the Feed to edit and click the 3 dots in the top right corner of the post then choose Edit Post. Edit the post and click the Save Changes button. Managers will have the choice to send an update via email by choosing Send or modify the post in the Feed only by choosing Don't send.
Deleting a post:
Find the Post in the Feed to delete then click the 3 dots in the top right corner of the Post. Click the Delete Post option then choose No, cancel or Yes, delete to confirm the selection.
Remember, the posts will only be deleted in the Lounge Feed. If the posts were sent via email they will remain in the email that was sent.
