How do I reshare Stories and links to Employee Advocacy from Sprout?

You can reshare Stories to Employee Advocacy from the Sprout app in Compose.

Note: You can only share Stories from LinkedIn and links from LinkedIn or Facebook to Advocacy.

Reshare Stories

To reshare a Story from Sprout:

Note: You’ll need to have your Employee Advocacy account connected to your Sprout Social account and Send to Advocacy will need to be enabled. Contact Support if you need assistance connecting your accounts.

  1. Navigate to Compose Screen_Shot_2022-05-11_at_9.04.47_AM.png.

    Note: The ability to post is tied to Sprout permissions, not permissions in Employee Advocacy.

  2. Select your LinkedIn profile from the profile picker. You can only post from a single LinkedIn profile.
  3. Compose your post.
  4. Select a single date and time to post. You can only select a single date and time to send LinkedIn posts to Employee Advocacy, not multiple dates or times.
  5. Click Create Advocacy Story.Screen_Shot_2022-09-20_at_11.54.02_AM.png
  6. Fill out the Advocacy fields with your desired information.PI_Publishing_Compose_LinkedIn_Network_Preview_Send_to_Employee_Advocacy_Post_with_Modal.png

    Note: Any fields that are required in Employee Advocacy (e.g. Advocacy Topics) are also required here.

  7. Select your Post Date. If you select When published to network, Sprout will create an active reshare LinkedIn Employee Advocacy post. If you select On future date, Sprout will create a draft Employee Advocacy post.

Once you enter your details and click Save, you’ll see a preview and summary of your post.


The reshared Story will appear in Advocacy.


Reshare links

You can also create an Advocacy Story from an attached link if you’re drafting a Facebook or LinkedIn post in Sprout.

To create an Advocacy link Story:

  1. Navigate to Compose Screen_Shot_2022-05-11_at_9.04.47_AM.png.
  2. Select your LinkedIn and/or Facebook profile from the profile picker.
  3. Compose your post. Once you paste your link, the attached link window will appear.
  4. Click Create Advocacy Story.
  5. If you’re posting to LinkedIn, you can choose to post a LinkedIn reshare or a link Story. Facebook posts will automatically post as link Stories.

Note: Any original URL parameters will be replaced with Advocacy settings. For example, if the original URL has a utm_source=blog, that parameter will be replaced with utm_source=advocacy.

The Story will now appear in Advocacy.
