Create a Content Backlog with the Idea Bin

We understand that not every project has a scheduled date. With the Idea Bin, you’ve got a convenient place to brainstorm and flesh out projects before they hit the calendar. When you’re ready to put those ideas into action, simply drag them to your calendar to get them scheduled.


Create New Ideas

To create a new idea, open the Idea Bin by clicking Ideas. 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.

Sorting Ideas

Inside the Idea Bin, projects will be sorted by different groups. Select the option that you’d like to group by.

Search for any idea by the title of the project.

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

Schedule Your Drafts

To schedule any idea, drag the project to a specific date on the calendar.

Or click into the project and select a scheduled date.
