How do I create a post?


Creating a post has been made much more manageable in V6!


Make sure that you have logged into your personal Expandshare account. On the Newsfeed screen, you should see a blue "Plus" in the top right corner. Click on the button, and a popup window should appear. 


In this window, there are four options. (Preshift, Special, Accouncement, and New Team Member). Click on the post that you would like to make. Depending on the option chosen, the screen should update to the create post screen. Fill in the details of your post and click "Select Audience" to continue. 



Selecting an audience


After filling in the details of your post, press "Select Audience" to open up a new screen that allows you to select who can view your post. 



By selecting 'Everyone', everyone who is in your location or company will be able to see the post. The number on the 'Preview Post' button will show the number of people who will receive this post.

By selecting "Custom Audience," you will be able to choose who can view the post. 

Selecting Locations

To allow a specific location to view the post, find the heading that is labeled "Select Location" and select the place that you would like to post to. Once published, any user that is assigned to that location will be able to view the post. 


Selecting Roles

To allow specific users that are assigned to a role to view the post, find the heading that is labeled "Select Role." Once published, any user assigned to the role selected will be able to view the post.

 

Selecting Users

To allow only specific users to view the post, find the heading that is labeled "Select Users." Once published, any user-selected will be able to view the post. 



Use the Location, Role, and User selections to tailor your post directly to your audience. At the bottom of the screen, next to "Preview Post," you should see a number that represents the number of users who will be able to view the post. Click on "Preview Post" to continue or click on "Edit Post" to go back and edit the details of the post. 





Previewing a post


This is the last step before publishing your post. Once you have filled in the details of your post and selected the audience you wish to post to; you will have a chance to preview the post and view the audience of the post. 


You will find a preview of what your post will look like at the top. If you wish to edit the details once more, press the blue edit button that is to the right of your post. 


You will also find a breakdown of the audience selected. If you wish to edit the audience once more, press the blue edit button that is to the right of the custom audience heading. 


Once you are satisfied with your post and your audience, find the blue "Post" button at the bottom of the screen. The number next to the "Post" button represents the number of users who can view the post. Finally, click on the "Post" button to publish your post!
