How to Manage the Idea Bin

The Idea Bin is a place to store ideas for projects and social messages before they get scheduled on your Marketing Calendar.

Create New Ideas

To create a new idea:

  1. Open the Idea Bin by clicking Ideas.
  2. Create a project or social message by clicking “+” in the upper right corner.

Every project or social message created in the Idea Bin will be unscheduled.

Manage Ideas

Inside the Idea Bin, projects can be sorted by Color Label, Status, and Type. Select the option that you’d like to group by toggling down the menu.

Please Note: If you don’t have custom statuses in your calendar plan, you will only be able to sort by Color Label and Type.

Use the search symbol to search for any idea by the title of the project.

You can also use saved calendar views to filter. When you apply a saved calendar view on the calendar, this will also filter the Idea Bin. You can override filters by using a search to find any project.

Schedule Ideas

To schedule any idea:

Drag the project to a specific date on the calendar.


Click into the project and select a scheduled date.
