Post Alias enables managers to delegate another community manager to broadcast on their behalf. This helps busy, high-profile managers save time by selecting another manager to create post in their name.
The categories and targets available are still subject to the permissions of the manager creating the post.
Example Post Alias
Katie Rubak is a Global Manager and designates Lindsey Rapose, a Division Manager, to create on her behalf. Lindsey can only post to the Categories and Targets set in her permissions. She does not automatically inherit Katie’s Global Manager permissions.
Assign an Alias
Global Managers or the manager themselves can go into their profile and opt-in as an “Alias” and select the manager(s) who can create on their behalf. Only managers can be an Alias, and they can only designate other managers to create on their behalf.
