Posting to multiple Channels. What does it entail?

Posting to multiple Channels refers to creating a post or article and publishing it to several Channels simultaneously. This means that the users of the Channels you have posted to will be able to view your post, even if the Channels you’ve selected have different members. 

Moreover, each post will have a different activity depending on the Channels in which it resides. This means that if a user comments on the post in a specific Channel, other Channels will not be affected (i.e. have the same comment). 

If you wish to edit the post or article, you can navigate to any of the Channels you posted to and edit the content. These changes will then be reflected in all of the Channels you posted to.

How to create a post for multiple Channels

Editing the list of Channels that have been posted to

When you edit a post or article, you can choose to remove a Channel from the list of Channels you posted to. By doing so, the post or article will be deleted from the Channel you removed. 

You can also add Channels that were not added prior, therefore publishing the post or article into the newly added Channels.
