Manage ReQueue Groups and Settings

With ReQueue Groups, you can create categories of social messages that will automatically be scheduled to your calendar. There are two types of groups: Intelligent groups and Placeholder groups. Intelligent groups will intelligently fill the gaps in your social schedule with messages using your customized Intelligent settings. Placeholder Groups let you manually select the block of time and frequency. For example, sending a message from this group every Monday at 10:00 am.

Global Settings

You can go to ReQueue Setting right from the Groups Page.

Any changes or updates made in ReQueue’s Global Setting will impact ReQueue as a whole and will affect all Groups.

Enable/Disable ReQueue

The Enable/Disable toggle will let you turn ReQueue on and off. When toggled to Enabled, ReQueue will be on, messages in your ReQueue Groups will be scheduled, and you will be able to add messages to your ReQueue Groups. Also, you may see ReQueue Gaps on your calendar.  When ReQueue is toggled off, messages in your ReQueue Groups will not be scheduled, and you will not be able to add messages to your ReQueue Groups.

Message Sending Limits

Avoid sending the same message too often. The Message Sending Limits let you choose if the same message can be sent up to a maximum of one or two times a month.

Manage Messages In A Group

When managing messages in a ReQueue Group, you will see a few different options.

1. Active/Archived Tabs – Social messages in your groups will appear in the Active tab unless they have been archived. All messages that have been archived will appear in the Archived tab. You can unarchive messages at any time and they will automatically be moved back to the Active tab.

2. Sent Number – CoSchedule will show you how many times a message has been published from this group.

3. View History to see when a message was added to ReQueue  and the date(s) it has already been sent by ReQueue.

4. To edit and/or archive a message in a group simply click into the message you want to change.

You are able to move messages from one group to another. To do this find the message you want to move, click on it, and dragging it over (to the left) to the group you want to move it to in the ReQueue Groups page.

Note, it is only after a message is published for the first time that it will officially be available in your group. Once a message is available in a group it will be paused for at least 2 weeks so it does not get posted too many times that month.
