Publish allows you to easily schedule content across your Social Media channels. To begin using scheduling, you will first need to connect your Social Profiles to the Mention platform. From there, you will be provided different features to enhance your online posting capabilities!

Connect your Social Account
If you have already connected any Account to Mention, Publish will start working with your connected Account! If you click on the Publish tab, you will immediately see your Social Media calendar.
If there are currently no Social Accounts connected to the Mention tool, you will be offered the option to directly connect your first Account by clicking on the Publish tab:
Once your first Account is connected, the calendar will appear and offer you the option of adding more Accounts if your Quota offers more Social Accounts to connect :
Schedule Posts from your Calendar or Composer
Once you have at least one Social Profile added to Mention, you can curate your posts! There are two methods to scheduling your post: you can click on the calendar date and time that you want to post on or press the Compose button at the top right.
★ Schedule a post from a Calendar slot
You can pick the specific date and time of posting by clicking on large calendar in your Publish page. Once you click on calendar, the option to choose your account will appear. Please follow the next few steps to curate your post:
1. Choose a Social Account to post from:
2. Write your post in the Post Content part:
3. Preview your post in the way it appears for the chosen Social Media platform. The Composer will preview text along with the links or attachments you include in your post. Furthermore, the Composer will let you adjust the time and date of your post if you would like to make changes.
★ Schedule a post from the Compose button
If you choose to create a post directly from the composer, then don't forget to select a date at which you want to schedule it!
You can then follow the same steps previously explained.
Once you are all done, you can schedule your post and it is ready to go! Now, you can organize your Social Media Calendar within the Publish tool. To stay on top of all your posts, you can turn on Publish notifications to view when your posts go live!
❗️The calendar coincides with the timezone of your Account. You can view the timezone of your Mention account in your Account Settings and make adjustments as needed.
★ Draft a Post for Future Scheduling
If you are not ready to post your content, or would like a team member to review the post before scheduling, you can save your post to your drafts!
To do this, please follow the same workflow of crafting your post in the Composer. However, instead of scheduling , click on the Save Post To Draft button at the bottom right hand side of the Composer.
Your draft will not post until you review it and approve it. To find a list of your drafted posts, you can click on Drafts next to your Compose button in the calendar!
Please note that a drafted post can be viewed by your team members who have access to the Social Account. If you would like a team member to review your post and schedule it, they must have access to the social account!
★ Posting on Instagram
Please be aware that Mention has a designated process for posting on Instagram. At this time, please refer to our article on scheduling an Instagram Post through Publish for more information!
Publish Team Management
If you would like to use Publish with multiple Team Members, the best method of connecting your Accounts is through the Social Accounts Settings. From there, you can share access to those Social Media Accounts to the Teammates of your choice.
❗️Providing your Teammates with access to Accounts will allow them to curate posts for that Social Media Account on their Publish tool within their Mention profile.
You are all set with curating your first post! Once scheduled, your post will go live for Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn! If you want to edit your post prior to the date of posting, you can as well.
