Re-enabling Facebook groups

We are excited to announce that, finally 🙈, you can schedule and publish posts to Facebook groups. Yay! However, Facebook introduced new requirements so you’ll have to install Planable app to your Facebook group.

All you have to do is to click a button. After connecting a group, click the ‘Authorize’ button and add Planable to your Facebook group. Done!

Bigger, better, louder post status

You can now see more details about the publishing status of a post. You will know if your posts are scheduled, published, marked as published, saved as a draft, or ad. You now have more clarity over your content and its status.

  1. If you see that the icon is colored and there is no microstate—this post has been successfully published on the platform. Screen Shot 2018-08-06 at 2.58.13 PM.png

Sunsetting Facebook profiles

Starting August 1st, publishing to Facebook profiles via third party apps has been suspended by Facebook. You will no longer be able to connect Facebook profiles, publish posts to Facebook profiles and all scheduled posts will fail to publish.

As you know, Facebook is on a mission to improve their platform and reduce abuse and this change is part of that mission.

The good news is that you can turn your Facebook profile into a page and continue using Planable, here is how.

Auto-schedule approved posts

You can now enable automatic scheduling of approved posts to save time and clicks when managing your social media campaigns. To enable this feature, head to your workspace settings and click enable. Make sure your posts have a date and time set before being approved.

As always, happy planning!

Required approvals

We are excited to announce that you can now set required approvals on your workspace and make sure only approved posts from designated people will go live. To turn this feature on, please visit your workspace settings menu and click Enable.

Only people with Approve permission will be able to approve posts and only one approver is sufficient for a post to be considered approved.

User permissions

You can now manage user permissions and set who can approve posts, edit posts or publish easily. This will give you more flexibility and simplicity in managing your team and clients. To configure your team permissions, go to manage users menu and click Manage Permissions.

Introducing timetable

We're excited to announce our brand new feature - workspace timetable 🕑✨. We know how frustrating it can be for frequent publishers with a weekly schedule to pick a date and time for each individual post 👎. But not anymore! Take a minute to set up your workspace timetable and stay on top of the weekly schedule, like a champ 💪 .

To get started just click on "Configure timetable" in your workspace settings.

After set up you will be able to easily pick a time when you create a post.

In the calendar view, you will quickly see the time slots with no posts assigned, so you will be able to plan and organize them faster.

As always, stay productive and enjoy!

More control of your account and data

We are aligning our app with GDPR regulations and updated our terms of service and privacy policy. We've added a few new features to give you more control of your account and data. The new options are available under Profile tab of your Planable account:

https://app.planable.io/settings/profile

Data portability

You can now export all the data created and collected related to you in a single click.

Email updates

You can now choose to opt-in or opt-out at any time of marketing email updates. We send email updates about product and feature announcements, promotions, educational materials, and events. Our updates focus on relevant information and never sell your data to marketing companies.

Note: Workspace collaborators are not subscribed by default to email updates. Planable will still send you transactional emails (in app important alerts or notifications) by default.

Increased security

We’ve added additional safe-guards to keep your data safe and secure.

Complete deletion requests

If you no longer use Planable, you can choose to remove your account and your data from our systems. This also includes third party providers we are sharing your data with.

If you have specific questions about your information, please reach out to us via Intercom or contact our us directly at hello@planable.io

As always, we are happy to help.

Re-enabling Facebook mentions

We are happy to announce that we've implemented a workaround for Facebook page mentions and now you can tag Facebook pages in your posts.

This time however, you have to know the page username. To tag a page just type "@pagename" (exactly as it is on Facebook). We will search and add the page to the suggested list. Check out the gif below:

To find a page username, find the page on Facebook and the username will be displayed below the page name or in the browser url.
