Idea Board - CoSchedule Blog

Idea Board

The Idea Board is designed to give you a place to plan, prioritize, and store your best content marketing ideas and projects – before they get scheduled on your Marketing Calendar.

Note: The Idea Board is available in our Marketing Suite.

Navigating the Idea Board

To access the idea board, click on Idea in the main menu.

Group all of your ideas by Color Label, Status, or Types.

Drag any project to a new column to change its attributes or move it to the top of any column to give it more priority.

To schedule any Idea on your calendar, drag the idea to the top-right corner or manually schedule inside of the project.

You can access your Ideas from the calendar view inside of the Idea Bin.
