The perfect social media calendar: With this tutorial, you'll learn how to use Kontentino's Calendar main features to streamline your social media management workflow.
Right after you log in you see this simple dashboard with 3 columns. In the left column, you have your Social Media Profiles and presets. For a clear overview, you’ll find all posts that are scheduled (for today) in the middle column. In the right column, you have the tasks assigned to you and the ones assigned to your team members. - for example post visuals to be made by your graphic designer.
Using the Calendar
In the calendar, you create posts, schedule them within the calendar and have an overview of all your planned content for a given social media channel. Kontentino Calendar supports planning and scheduling for major social media networks: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest.
All planned posts are listed in the calendar view as well as in a list on the left. Once you hover your cursor on a particular post, it will highlight the post in the calendar and vice versa.
Introducing Content Plans
Content plans are periods in which you plan and approve your social media content. It can be one week long, one month long or whatever period you choose. It depends on how often and for how long you plan your social media content.
To add a content plan, you can just click on the drop-down menu and select the option “New content plan“ (let's select Facebook) and you will see all pages you manage. Select the one(s) you want to connect with Kontentino and create your first content plan.
Let's name the content plan and choose the range of dates. After this, your calendar is ready for you to create the first post.
To reschedule posts within this content plan, use drag and drop or duplicate posts holding the control/command key. To move the post to another content plan or another channel for later use, drag it to the left panel.
Let's have a look at the left panel which contains a summary of the content plan you're currently in - the number of posts, distribution of posts using labels to keep your content balanced and the total planned boost budget within this content plan. Naturally, you can create your own labels in the settings, to match your specific needs.
Below the summary you have all of the posts listed in chronological order with more details. There's a preview of the post, the type of the post, post labels, boost budget and status of the particular post.
In the top panel, you can pick another page or preset (clusters of pages to be displayed simultaneously in the calendar) and a particular content plan for that page. You can also apply some actions in bulk, like assigning tasks, sending for approval and scheduling posts.
