Add more text to your imported content

Importing content in different ways (RSS, Pocket, or bulk importing) can simplify your work and save a lot of time when adding content to your SocialBee account.

All that is nice, but do you know what's nicer? Being able to add your own text to all of these imported posts.

Now you can do just that, as we've improved the "Append Text" feature in all of the importing tools to allow you to add your text in full.

RSS - SocialBee.io 2019-12-02 16-07-46.png

Up until now you were able to add up to 50 characters to your imported posts (where, by default, the caption is the title of the page/article/link), but now, you can tell the full story, as long as you're within each platform's limit:

  • Twitter: 280 characters
  • Pinterest: 500 characters
  • LinkedIn: 1300 characters
  • Google My Business: 1500 characters
  • Instagram: 2200 characters
  • Facebook: 5000 characters

And if your appended text and title are larger than the maximum character limit for a particular platform (like Twitter) we'll first trim the title, to make your appended text fit.

In a nutshell, you'll be able to share content from other sources and automatically add your own twist to each post :) Just like having a cake and eating it too!

We’ve Revamped our Onboarding Wizard! πŸ§™β€β™‚οΈ

Setting up your SocialBee account (or even just a new workspace) became a lot easier, as we’ve redesigned the onboarding experience.

The new wizard will take you through all the steps of setting up a new workspace, from connecting profiles to setting up your schedule, and even adding posts. All that while providing help in the form of videos for each step along the way.

You can even skip the onboarding if you feel like you don’t need it, but keep in mind that you can resume it at any time if you want to, from your Profiles& Settings Menu

(BTW, you can also go through this onboarding to set up new profiles on your existing workspaces as well.)

We hope this new look will help you get a better grip on setting up your SocialBee account.

It looks good, doesn’t it?

Buzz up your posts with emoji! 😎

Social Media works best when you can convey your message with emoji. Up until now, you'd need to copy and paste emoji from outside sources to be able to add them to the posts created with SocialBee, but not anymore 😎

Our Emoji plugin is here!

Users & Roles are Here!

If you're on one of our Pro Plans, boy we have great news for you! πŸŽ‰

After releasing Workspaces a few weeks ago we've now finished the next phase of the agency plans features: Users & Roles.

Now you can invite multiple (3 for Pro25, and 5 for the higher Pro plans) users to your workspace and assign them different roles. You can also mark users as customers - and give them any role you want.

Workspace Users - SocialBee.io 2019-09-05 11-20-29.png

You can find out more about users & roles here.

So now, you can invite your colleagues, virtual assistants, and even customers to work together with you in specific Workspaces.

You don't need to wear all the hats anymore. Or all the clothes...

Plus, we've made it easy for you to move your profiles between your workspaces.

Next up - agency features. Like internal commenting and extended reports.

Profile Migration Between Workspaces

Now that all Pro accounts have Multiple Workspaces, you might want to re-organize your account by moving some profiles (probably belonging to the same business or same client) from one workspace to another.

We've made it so that this is easy to do.

Social Profiles - SocialBee.io 2019-09-05 17-44-14.png

See how to migrate your profiles here: https://help.socialbee.io/article/149-how-to-migrate-profiles-between-workspaces.

So now you don't need to call a friend to help you move (your profiles).
