One of the features loved by our users is the Randomize/Auto-sort function on the export table. The existing app allows you to randomly scramble up to 100 schedule social media posts with a single click. It’s used to mix up numerous posts you have selected from various RSS feeds, blogs and content curation sources to ensure that you are spreading out the content from various sources or topics throughout each day, rather than grouping them from the same sources consecutively.
The existing Randomize automation feature is truly a random algorithm. Usually some manual drag and drop fine tuning is required to ensure that the 3-5 days of social media posts you are managing are spread out by topic and source of content. The system makes this an easy visual process by color coding all posts differently that are selected from each RSS feed or content source you are using.
Bundle Post Announces The New “Proportional Mix” Tool
Let’s break this down for you in detail…
New Mix Option – This additional sorting option will automatically and intelligently calculate the number of social media posts from the different feed channels you have selected for the export and the number of posts from each of those RSS feed channels and proportionally mix your scheduled posts.
The Mix feature is most useful when you’re scheduling social media posts from numerous feed channels and my content folders, where your export table has two or more colored content groups. When you click the new Mix button, the Bundle Post algorithm with calculate the number of colored posts from each RSS feed source and the percentage of posts as compared to the total number of posts on-screen. It will then mix up your scheduled posts (max 100) proportionally based on the percentages it calculated in the first step. Hit the Mix button once and you’re done!
The result of the new Mix function will be a substantial additional savings in time managing your scheduled, curated and marketing posts. You will need even less time using the drag and drop capability on the export table to ensure that your topical social media posts are evenly spread out across the 3-5 days you are scheduling. We are saving about 5-10 additional minutes on each muti-post scheduled export.
Just like the existing Randomize function, the new Mix feature is for Pro level accounts only.
Existing Auto-Sort – The existing Randomize function will remain active and can be used in conjunction with the new Mix option. Our testing shows that the randomize feature is now best used for content exports that are comprised of posts coming from a single feed, follow friday or my content folder source. For example, if you are doing an export for a specific my content campaign and only using content from that folder for your export, use the randomize function before exporting.
We have labeled the Mix feature as beta for the time being and may continually make improvements based on its use and the feedback from you, our users. Let us know what you think.
