Create a Post

Here, you will learn how to create a post

What are posts?

Posts enable you to publish quick content that can include images & videos (via Google Drive, OneDrive, or from your computer), GIFs, and files.

Articles, on the other hand, are designed for long news, blogs, and all types of content that need a rich medium to be expressed properly.

You can also organize and customize the text in posts by:

  • Creating headers
  • Adding links to text
  • Bolding text
  • Italicizing text
  • Underlining text
  • Adding a text color
  • Adding a highlight color
  • Adding format lists
  • Adding emoticons

Posts can also be posted on behalf of someone, turned into announcement posts, drafts, and moved to review.

How to create a post

Creating a new post in Happeo is extremely simple:

  1. Click on the new post field and start typing. When you start typing, all the rich text editor controls will appear (the option to search for a GIF will also appear)

You can also tag specific Channel members, editors, and all Channel members. This is useful when you want to notify users, note their contributions to the post, etc. To tag users you can either type:

  1. @User's name, @Editors or @Channel

Adding attachments to the post is also easy:

  1. Click on Attach file...
  2. And select where you want to attach a file, such as Google Drive, OneDrive, or from your computer

When you share the new post, Happeo will also check any Google Drive or OneDrive file permissions and notify you if the file needs to be shared with the Channel participants.

When uploading content to Happeo posts there are two limits:

  1. 10MB limit for images
  2. 32MB limit for files

If you would like to upload a larger file or image, you can always add it to Drive or OneDrive and upload it using:

  1. Attach file...
  2. Drive or OneDrive
