You have already learnt about how to schedule your posts in Publish. However, sometimes your posts need to be edited due to new updates in information, changes in your editorial calendar, or even spelling modifications. For this, we offer a variety of management features built right into Publish to make sure you can modify content with ease!

In this article, we will provide you with information on how to preview your content and how to modify posts with edits. Here is the agenda:

  • Preview Posts on the Calendar

  • Preview Multimedia

  • Edit, Duplicate, or Delete Posts

Preview Posts on the Calendar

On the Calendar, you have two options for previewing content:

  • Individual Post Previews: review a specific post that appears in your calendar.

  • Daily Posts List: review all of the posts that are scheduled for a specific day.

Below, we will go over each method and it's benefits:


Individual Post Preview:

⚙️ This preview will work for the List, Weekly, and Monthly view of your Calendar.

Directly on the Calendar, you can click on any post and a side-panel will appear with a preview of your post. This preview will also show you how the post will appear on it's respective social media platform once it is published:

When you open a post, the preview panel will display information regarding the scheduling of the post:

In the preview, you will find:

  • The date and time that the post will be published.

  • The social media platform and account handle that the post will be published on.

  • A preview of the entire post with any attached multimedia.

  • The status of the post -

    • Scheduled: the post will be published at the designated time you chose

    • Error : the post is in error and will not be published unless the post is fixed. Mention will display an error message to explain how to resolve the issue.

  • The option to Delete, Edit, or Duplicate your post.

  • If your post has a Tag, it will display in the preview as well.

💡 Mention Tip - Published Social Media Post

If the social media post is already published, you can still access the preview panel. When a social media post is published through Mention, the preview panel will offer this information:

  • The status of the post will say published with the date and time of publishing.

  • You will have the option to view the post on social media or duplicate the content to a new post.

  • You will also have the option to review the Post Analytics and performance of the post.


Daily Post List:

⚙️ This preview will work for the Weekly view of your Calendar.

At the top of the Mention Calendar, you will see numbers next to specific days. These numbers will indicate the number of daily posts that are scheduled for a specific day. You can click on this number to open a side-panel with a preview for all of these posts:

💡 Mention Tip - Filter the Daily List by Social Platform

At the top of the daily list, you will see social icons for the platforms that you will be publishing on for that day. If you click on an icon, Mention will filter out the previews for that platform:

Preview Multimedia

If you have multimedia attached to your scheduled posts, you will see the multimedia appear in the preview panel. You can take the preview a step further by enhancing the view of photos or previewing video content directly in the Calendar.

Here are the ways to preview your multimedia:


Expand the View of Photos

If your scheduled post has a photo attached, you can open the photo in fullscreen mode! This is a great way to review a new illustration or design incase it needs modifications before it is published online. To expand an image, please open the preview panel and click on the image:


Preview Scheduled Videos

Within the preview panel, you have the option of previewing the videos that are scheduled on your calendar. To do this, please open the preview panel and click on the video. The video will automatically start playing and you have the option of watching your content in full screen.

Delete, Edit, or Duplicate a Scheduled Post

When you access the preview panel, you will see three buttons to modify your post. You have the option of editing, deleting, or duplicating your post at any time before the scheduled publication date:


Delete a Post

If you choose the Delete option, Mention will instantly delete the scheduled post from your Calendar.

❗Please note that this process is instant and permanent. You will not have the ability to recover any post that is deleted on your Calendar.


★ Edit a Post

If you choose the Edit option, Mention will open your Composer where you can:

  • Modify text or multimedia

    • Multimedia can be deleted or you can import new media from your computer, GIPHY, or the Content Library

  • Change the scheduled time and date of the post

  • Unschedule the post by moving it to the Draft Folder

  • Move the post to Draft. This will unschedule your post.


★ Duplicate a Post

If you chose the Duplicate button, Mention will open the Composer where you can begin to curate your new post. The text and any additional multimedia from the original post will be transferred to the composer. All you need to do is choose the social account(s) that you want to publish on and schedule the specific posting time.

If you have any questions about navigating or modifying your Calendar, please do not hesitate to contact the Mention Support team!
