Since your company might have different pages on social media and Sharepoint or RSS feeds that they already use to inform employees of relevant information and shareable content, Smarp makes it easy for you as an Admin to directly import that content into Smarp.
There are several different kinds of sources from which you can automatically import content to Smarp. Currently, Smarp allows content import from LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube as well as from RSS feeds and Sharepoint.
All content import settings can be found under the Settings tab in the menu bar by selecting Importing Content.
When a new content feed is added to Smarp in your company settings, you have to choose the following:
- Post to: here you should select the channel(s) that you want the content be published to
- Publish automatically: check this box if you want the content to be automatically published on the Smarp feed. If you want it to be Proposed first so that an admin has to approve it, leave the box unchecked.
When importing content from social media feeds to Smarp, there are few important things to remember:
- Smarp will only import the links embedded in your social media posts, rather than the posts themselves. This means that if you have a post on LinkedIn which has not been created via a link, for example a video post or an image post, these will not be fetched to Smarp. Similarly, Smarp does not fetch the LinkedIn post, but fetches the content from the information in the link that was used to create the post in LinkedIn. Therefore the content might look different in Smarp then it does on your LinkedIn page.
- Please use a "clean" URL when connecting a feed, and not one that has extra characters at the end. For example, when connecting a Twitter source to Smarp, the source should look like this https://twitter.com/BeSmarp rather than this https://twitter.com/BeSmarp?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor though they both lead to the same source.
- Content that is imported to Smarp from a social network page or feed will show the social network name as the creator of the post in Smarp. Users will hence know from which social media network the content has been published.
If you ever want to remove a connected page or feed from your Smarp domain, you can simply click on the X symbol next to the feed. Smarp will confirm that you want the page to be deleted. After the feed is removed, all the content that was already imported will remain in your Smarp domain but no new content will be fetched.
