New Feature: Maintain Control Over Your Social Media Strategy With Pause Social Messages

You know the phrase “timing is everything.”

Well..it’s especially true for your social media strategy.

And when there’s a national crisis or your website unexpectedly goes down…(yikes)

Sending social messages that seem out of touch…

Or directing users back to a website that doesn’t work…

Well…it just can’t happen. 🙅

You’ve got a brand’s reputation at stake!

If only you could stop social messages from sending WITHOUT deleting them… (because TBH, those lil’ guys took some serious time to plan and create)

Give yourself time to pivot to an alternate strategy… (i.e reschedule posts you need to skip and quickly create a few new, more appropriate messages)

And then easily resume sending messages once the dust settles (and show your boss you can handle anything the social world throws at you).

Too good to be true?

Think again.

Introducing Pause Social Messages from CoSchedule! AKA the easiest way to pause and recalibrate your social message strategy (if the need should arise).

With Pause Social Messages, you can:

  • Quickly pause (and resume) your social messages.  Life isn’t predictable. With Pause Social Messages, you maintain control over *every* social message and can react fast to real-time events and time-sensitive situations.

Which means you stay in control of your social media strategy….

And know your messages are going out in the right way…

(NOTE: Only calendar admins and owners can pause your social messages. Users without this status will NOT be able to pause social messages)

Step 2: Once inside the “Pause Social Messages” settings, click the “Pause Social Messages” button on the right side of your screen.

Step 3: When the pop-up appears, type “Pause” into the text box and then click “Confirm.”

And voila! Your social messages are paused and no longer sending from your calendar.

For perspective, here’s what your calendar will look like when your calendar is paused from sending social messages:

^^Pretty cool, right?

And once the dust settles (and you’ve had a chance to make any necessary changes to your social schedule)…

Here’s how to resume sending your social messages:

Step 1: Head to your calendar settings, scroll down until you find the  “Pause Social Messages” section of your settings.

(NOTE: Only calendar admins and owners can resume sending your social messages. Users without this status will NOT be able to resume sending social messages)

Step 2: Once inside the “Pause Social Messages” settings, click “Resume Social Messages.”

And voila! Your social messages will resume sending from your calendar.

^^awesome, right?!

And if any messages were skipped while your calendar was paused from sending, you can easily reschedule them with just a couple clicks.
