How Slack posts are published

Once Group Admin and Moderators have approved your post, the post will be published to selected as well as the channels you have selected within Slack.

Interacting with Slack posts

Channel members will have the option to Share or View your post in Slack.

Slack will display a preview of the post with the option to view more. If members in Slack click View, they will be brought to the post within EveryoneSocial where they can comment, share externally, or like the post.

If they click Share, they will then be brought to the "Review and Share" window within EveryoneSocial where they can share externally. You can click Share to share your post to your selected social networks or you can schedule your external share for later. If you choose to Share the post without selecting a scheduled time, EveryoneSocial will queue your share for when your post is more likely to receive engagement.

How to Delete a Post from a Slack Channel

In Slack, click the vertical three dots menu on the upper right-hand side of the post.

Choose "More message shortcuts."

Type "delete" in the search bar and select "Delete ES post."

Please see the EveryoneSocial Privacy Policy to read more about how we collect, use, and disclose your information.
