Advocacy: Create a Link post

If you have a link to an interesting article or a website that you want to share with your colleagues on Haiilo, you can create a Link post to be proposed for publication on Haiilo. 


In order to create a link post, all you need is the URL from the article or website that you want the post to be linked to. You can copy the URL directly from the address bar in your browser and paste it in the Link field in Haiilo. In case you want to, you are also able to write in the URL manually. Make sure to include the whole URL in Haiilo.



Step 1: Enter your Link

Copy and paste your chosen URL in the Link field in Haiilo and all the information will be automatically fetched for you, if possible. 


You can edit the title, text or image of the post, if you wish, before going to the next step.  


Step 2: Configure

On this step, you will be able to select the channels where you want your proposed post to appear. You can propose a post to multiple channels when creating the post. You can also set a post language (if the language feature has been enabled for your company Haiilo domain).


You can decide if this post should be recommended for External sharing or just for Internal reading. If the post is for external sharing, you can also write your recommended sharing messages for each network and choose which sharing networks the post can be shared to. (Please note that anything you select can be changed by the Admins when they are reviewing the post.)


Step 3: Confirm

In the provided field, you can write any additional comments about the article, for example why you want to share it with your colleagues on Haiilo. If the Admins decide to keep your comments about the post when it is published, they will appear above the post.


Once you are happy with your post, please click the Done-button to submit the post to be approved. After the admins have approved your post, it will then appear on the main news feed.
