Publishing Section

Whether a post has been drafted, scheduled for a specific day and time, added to the Sprout Queue or submitted for approval, you can manage it from the Publishing section.


Clicking Publishing in the menu bar reveals a left navigation bar containing the following tools:

  • Calendar
  • Sprout Queue
  • Drafts
  • Needs Approval (Professional and Advanced plans only)
  • Rejected (Professional and Advanced plans only)
  • Find Content
  • Asset Library (Advanced plans only)
  • Instagram Notifications
  • Post via RSS
  • Failed Posts

Depending on your publishing permissions, you may not see some of the left navigation bar tools. You can learn more about Publishing permissions in the Administration & Billing category.
