Among the other uses, topics, and best practices for divisions are the following:
- Create and Organize Content
- Broadcast and Post to Divisions
- Filtering Divisions
Create and Organize Content
When you create new content feeds to your community, you can associate those feeds to divisions that you manage. All posts created by a connected feed automatically inherit the division you associate to the feed. Members can also be allowed to create posts, which also automatically inherit the associated member’s division.
You can also create posts manually, and during this process assign one or more of your own divisions to those posts. And you can edit the posts created by feeds or members in the divisions you manage.
Broadcast and Post to Divisions
You can send broadcasts to and create posts for divisions you manage to members of those divisions. The role of Broadcast Manager provides read-only access to members and posts, so that a designated manager can create, schedule, and view broadcasts. Any broadcast to a specific division will only be visible to members of that division.
When sending a broadcast or creating a post, the Divisions dropdown menu will appear allowing you the option of selecting a division to apply to your broadcast or post.
You can select more than one division for a broadcast or post. Once selected, the division will appear under the Division dropdown menu as a tag.
You can instantly simplify a list by filtering it by division using the following functions:
- Filter Post List by Divisions
- Filter Member List by Divisions
- Filter Reports by Divisions
Filter Post List by Divisions
In the Posts Page, you can instantly filter your Post List by selecting the division you want to view from the Divisions dropdown menu in the Filter Panel on the left side of the page. You have the option to select and view more than one division at a time.
Filter Member List by Divisions
In the Members Page, you can instantly filter your Member List by selecting the division you want to view from the Divisions dropdown menu in the Filter Panel on the left side of the page. You have the option to select and view more than one division at a time.
Filter Reports by Divisions
Just as with members and posts, reports can be filtered according to a manager’s divisions. Two separate Reports Only manager roles enable you to control access to reports in your divisions.
- The Reports Only (Full Access) Manager role allows full access to all reports in their division, but no access to content, member details, broadcasts or admin settings.
- The Reports Only (No Member Details) Managerrole allows access to post and summary reports in the manager’s divisions, but excludes any reports that reference individual members and all other aspects of community management.
When you go to the page of any kind of Graphical Report, you can filter the Report results in the filter panel on the left by selecting the division for which you want the Report to apply. After selecting the division, click Refresh to view the new Report data in a graph.
