When you navigate to your project dashboard inside ContentPlanner, you will see a screen similar to:
- You can always go to your dashboard by clicking on the colored bar on top.
- The main color (purple in this case) is a color you can set yourself in the project settings.
On the left side of your dashboard you have the content area with the different views on your content:
- Calendar view
- Workflow view
- Cluster view
- Table view
Let’s have a closer look to each of the views.
In the calendar layout you see your content in a chronological order. In the view below you see the content per week (weeks on the left side):
There are also separate columns per channel. And an extra column on the right side for content:
- that is not allocated to a channel
- without a publishing date
You can use drag & drop to move your content to the correct place on your planning board.
In the workflow layout, you see your content organized according to the different steps in your workflow:
ContentPlanner comes with a default workflow with the following steps:
But you can fully customize the workflow to your own needs: add, change, or remove steps. You can assign tasks to each of the individual steps.
You can also create multiple workflows for different content types that you need to produce: creating a YouTube video requires a different workflow than writing a blog post.
In the content workflow view (screenshot above) you can change the workflow and you can select the steps that are visible.
A cluster is like a chapter in a book: it groups related content in logical groups, thereby causing better search engine results.
The concept of clusters is mainly focused towards website & blog content.
In the table layout, you see all your content topics as rows in a grid view, similar to an excel sheet:
You can size & sort the columns as needed.
ContentPlanner provides different views on your content. This allows you to look at your content from different perspectives.
