Direct publishing leverages the same mobile content submission workflow Members follow, but instead of resulting in a post that needs review, posts created by authorized users will automatically be published to the selected channels.
- Administrators, Program Managers, and Publishers can immediately publish to any channel from their mobile app, whether the channel is set to auto publish or not.
- Channel Contributors can publish directly to their assigned channels (whether those channels are set to auto publish or not). Posts in non-assigned channels will be treated like a submission from a Member.
Program Studio tools such as Smart Campaigns must still be managed in Program Studio.
Note: Direct publishing is not available via the web experience. If you are an authorized user and find yourself submitting content via the web experience, we recommend switching to Program Studio or the mobile app.
How to Use Direct Publishing
- You must be a user with a studio-level role of Administrator, Program Manager, Publisher, or Channel Contributor.
- If you are a Channel Contributor, the channel you post to must be one of your assigned channels.
- You must have access to the channel in the mobile app. In other words, if the channel is targeted then you must be included in the channel targeting.
With the pre-requisites fulfilled, all you do is follow the steps outlined in Submit and Edit Content to create a piece of content on mobile and choose a channel listed under Publish to Your Channels.
How to Edit Content on Mobile
