Viewing by Day 

Navigate by selecting a specific day on the timeline or by clicking the right and left navigation arrows.

  • Moments are represented by vertical columns arranged from left to right in chronological order with content appearing in a column.
  • Content can be reviewed, approved, and collaborated on without opening a moment.

Viewing by Week

When viewing by week, you can see seven days’ worth of moments at one time.

To view a different week, click a new week on the timeline or use the left and right navigation arrows to navigate forward or backward.

Moments are represented by moment cards stacked in vertical columns; each column represents a different day of the week.

Each moment card shows the name of the moment, the name of its primary story, the current approval status and the channel icons that represent the moment’s media mix.

Click on any moment card to create additional pieces of content, and visualize and interact with any content within.

Move a moment to another day by dragging and dropping a moment card on a different day of the week or on a specific date in the timeline.

Move a piece of content by dragging the specific piece of content from one moment to another.
