The Publish Calendar is the home view of the Publish module. You can view all your published and scheduled content color-coded per network and Campaign.
From the overview, you can take actions such as add content on a chosen day or find a post and copy it to a new date.
Viewing and Filtering Options
By default, the Calendar shows all your scheduled and published posts from the Channels that your user has access to. It also shows you all the colored bars of Campaigns that have been assigned to you.
You can change the view and filter your content through the options at the top of the section:
- Date range:
- In the top right, you can select the months or weeks to view content for.
- Month versus week view:
Below the date range is a selector for months (default) or week view. The month view holds color-coded icons for your posts, with numbers indicating how much content is going out that day, for the network.
The week view contains columns with a more detailed view of your posts, showing you the post media and text, as well as the exact publishing times.
- Newest versus oldest first:
- The week view has a specific selector for sorting the columns by oldest or newest content at the top.
- In the top-center and top-left, you can filter down on your content by criteria like label, network, channel, or approver.
Viewing and Creating Content
The monthly and the weekly views will display action buttons when you hover over a date or post. In the monthly view, you'll have the option to open a content column with details about all posts for a specific day.
For the content column and the weekly view, you can hover over any specific post and click Open to open a detail view. A published post will display some performance data and give you the option to boost the post. A scheduled post will open in the Publish Editor so you can edit it.
Finally, hovering over any future date will give you the option of creating a new post in the Publish Editor that will be scheduled to the date you chose.
Exporting the Calendar
From the top right of the Publish Calendar, you can export the month or week view you're in. You'll have the choice of exporting as a CSV, XLS, or XLSX file. The export will contain the below information in a row for each individual post:
