This article explains how to add a new content item using the Add Content Item form.
The Divvy Details
When you're ready to start adding content to one of your Divvy calendars, you have two options. Option 1 is to click the orange "+" icon in the header bar (right side) and select Content Item. This will trigger the Add New Content Item overlay/form. This action can be performed no matter where you are throughout the application.
Option 2 allows you to add a new content item directly from the calendar interface by hovering over the top left corner of a specific day and clicking the "+Content" link. This will also trigger the Add New Content Item overlay and automatically fill in the deadline date, based on the day from which you started.
Within the Add New Content form, give your content item a title and a description (optional) that summarizes the item. Then select a calendar, a content type, an associated campaign (optional), Status, and the owner who will be responsible for this item. These values can be changed later if you’re not sure about these details.
Adding Content Strategy (optional)
Once you select a calendar in the add new overlay you may also select rather you want to apply any content strategy associated to that calendar by selecting the Add Content Strategy box within the overlay. Selecting this option will expand the overlay, allowing you to select content strategy without having to enter the content item's Sandbox interface.
NOTE: To cut down on campaign clutter, the campaign dropdown will only show campaigns associated to the selected calendar that are currently active or ran within the last 6 months. To add a campaign to a content item that falls outside of these parameters, add the content item and then associated it via the sandbox interface.
All options labeled with asterisks are required fields.
From here, you have a few options for saving the content item.
- Clicking “Save” will save the content item with a Planned status, so you will be able to locate the item later in the Planned view of the Content interface.
- Clicking “Park It” will save this content item in DivvyHQ’s Parking Lot, the storage area for content ideas. You can go to the Ideas area to locate this item later.
- Clicking “Save and View” will open up the newly created content item's content item slide-in, in View mode. Note: if you are adding a new content item while you are in your Sandbox interface, clicking "Save & View" will open the content item in the Sandbox.
- Clicking "Save and Add" will save the content item you just entered, and prompt another "add new content" window to automatically pop up. Great for creating multiple content items at one time.
You also have the option to "Hide" this specific content item from the shared calendar, selecting this option hides the content item from anyone who is not the owner or assigned to the content item.
Note: You can change your default view to Sandbox no matter what after clicking "Save and View" by going to My Profile > General Settings > Edit Profile > Save and View Opens Sandbox Toggle.
As you can see, it's very easy to add new content into DivvyHQ, so get to it!
