Additional Questions? Email email@example.com
These questions were asked during this webinar. Please review our documented answers below.
- Do the channel contributors get an email when you give them permissions?
It depends on the permission level they started with. If you are giving someone Program Studio access for the first time (either upgrading an existing Member or adding someone brand-new via Add User), yes, they will receive an automated email invite to join Program Studio which states who invited them and gives them a link to Program Studio.
If you are downgrading someone's existing Program Studio status to the Channel Contributor role, they will not receive an email.
- What permissions do CCs have?
In Program Studio, Channel Contributors can:
- create, publish, and archive content via Planner
- review post metrics within Planner
- set up smart campaigns
In the Employee Experience (web and mobile),Channel Contributors can:
- automatically publish content to assigned channels
- review metrics on their own posts
- Can channel contributors only submit content through the mobile version of the app? vs. the publisher portal?
No, Channel Contributors are able to directly publish content to their assigned channels from both the mobile app and in Program Studio.
- I'm on app version 3.6.0. I am an admin but I can only contribute an image, video and link. Is this available on an upcoming version?
Publishing Notes is available in version 3.6.1 of our mobile app, and Articles are available in 3.6.5. Direct publishing for Channel Contributors, Publishers, Program Managers, and Administrators is available in version 3.7.
- The link post had comments and sharing options turned on - how can we control that in mobile? Are those channel settings?
These settings are configurable within Program Studio but cannot be changed during the direct publishing process on mobile.
- In the author filter, is that just authors that have contributed to the channels you have contributor access to?
The author filter that displays to Channel Contributors will show them any user who has access to publish to that channel.
