The create graphic step is one of the three types of steps that a user can add to a workflow/approval process (the other two types are review content and rejected content).
Recall that all workflows, however customised to meet an account's requirements, begin with the Create Content step. There a user may create a brief for a post, with design instructions describing how the post is to be set up and what kind of image/s incorporated. The text for the post (the "post copy") may also be entered at Create Content, or completed in later steps.
The create graphic step is used to pass on a brief that was set up at that first Create Content step, along to graphic designers or other users, so that they may action the instructions and complete the post. Additional create graphic steps may be inserted in subsequent stages of the workflow, as required.
Posts in the create graphic step are ordered by default by date of creation, fromnew to old. The order of posts may be customised through the filter bar.
Before beginning work on a post you need to claim it, so that another user won’t try to work on it simultaneously. Claim a post by enabling the lock icon at its top left-hand corner .
On the left-hand side of each post is a section containing information regarding that post, including its content category (a user-definable tag) and the original design instructions , as well as the option to read and upload working files .
Posts in the create graphic step are fully editable - you can modify or add text directly. Clicking on the post's image will open a browser dialogue, allowing you to select a graphic to add. Any changes made are immediate and automatically stored – there is no “save” button.
Posts may be rescheduled from the create graphic step by clicking on the calendar or clock icons at the top of the post. Each icon opens a new pop-up section, enabling the user to schedule the date and time as they wish.
The time picker provides analytics regarding average fan impressions, in the case of Facebook, or similar data for Twitter or Instagram posts, for the given day of the week selected in the calendar.These analytics should be used to aid in scheduling the optimal time for posting.
Note that a Facebook post is defined in Rivuu as one of three different types: Standard, Carousel or Video. The post-type is selected through buttons in the right-hand section of the post, one for each type. If you take a post of one type and click on the button for another (for example, click on "Video" for a post that was created as "Standard"), the post-type will be converted to the new selection.
If content is to be deleted as a result of this post-type conversion (a Standard-type post, for example, being converted to a Video type will, by definition, have any attached images removed), a warning pop-up will be displayed, informing the user that changing a post's type will clear all images and videos previously attached to it. Click CONFIRM to accept the change. When changing a post's type, the post copy (its text) remains unaffected.
