Content marketers know that to a steady stream of great content ideas are necessary for the success of their efforts. The Marketing.AI system has several different features for getting ideas into the system. It also has features for getting ideas from the Idea Bank to the Editorial Calendar and on into a production workflow. This week’s edition of the Feature Friday series focuses on one such feature, the Idea Drag and Drop. This feature is also part of the Calendar-Centric Workflow feature set.
As you can see from the GIF image above, the Ideas Drag and Drop is available from within the Editorial Calendar view by selecting the right tab from the left sidebar. This enables you to see a list of Ideas from your Idea Bank. You simply grab the Idea that you want and drag it on the date in the calendar that you want to plan it for.
Once the item is in the Editorial Calendar, you can click on the item and begin adding details and assignments. Any details such as Description, Theme, Persona etc. that you added in the idea creation process will carry over on drag and drop as well.
To enable the Idea Drag and Drop feature on your account, drop us a note through support or talk to your account manager — as with all features in the system there is no extra charge. And if you haven’t already done so, sign-up for a free trial to try this out yourself or schedule a demo for a full walk-through of all of the features that are relevant to your organization.
And tune in next week for another edition of Feature Friday.
