In this lesson, we'll be covering how to get started as an Administrator on the PostBeyond platform, including how to start creating and managing content. You'll learn how to:
- Navigate around the manager view
- Create a new group
- Create and delete topics
- Create new posts
- Manage existing posts
Before you get started, we recommend going through the user side modules to get a feel for what the users see on their end.
In this section we'll look at how to navigate around the Administrator side of the platform. You can do that by clicking on the navigation buttons on the left hand side of your screen.
- Navigate through the different sections of the side.
- Navigate to the user view and then switch back to the view.
Groups are necessary in order to determine who will be able to access a particular post. While many posts might be for everyone to view, some might be irrelevant to a particular segment of your employees. You can divide the content by groups. In this section you'll learn how to create new groups.
- Create two groups.
Every post has to be assigned to a topic (previously category). These topics can be reflective of language, content type, section, or any way you would like to divide your content. In this section you'll learn how to add and remove topics.
- Create two topics.
In this section we'll go over how to create a new post manually. You'll learn what each field on the post creation form does, which fields are mandatory, and how they interact with each other. Among the features available when creating posts are featured posts and likes & comments.
- Create two posts manually
- Switch to the user view to see what those posts look like
