How to add moderators to a feed?
To add moderators to a feed, go to Live > Feed, select the feed you wish to set-up moderation on, and scroll down to the following options:
- Require posts to be approved by a moderator: Enable this to require moderation.
- Send email alerts to moderators: Enable this if you want the moderators to be alerted via email when a new post is pending moderation on the feed. If you select this the moderator needs to have access to the workspace in Backstage.
- Send push notifications to moderators: Enable this if you want the moderators to be alerted via a notification in the event when a new post is pending moderation on the feed. If you select this the moderator needs to be a participant of the event.
- Moderators: Select the moderators for the feed (they need to be added to the event as participants).
Note: Moderation cannot be done via the aggregated home feed, and has to be done via each individual feed. Scheduled feed posts are visible to moderators in the feed in the app, however they are only visible in each individual feed where they were posted, and not in the aggregated (home) feed.
