Adding Social Sites to Real Magnet

After Social Magnet has been enabled, an Admin User must configure the organization’s social accounts to its Real Magnet account.  Additionally, the Admin user may assign permission to end users for viewing content, posting content, or adding additional social accounts to the Real Magnet account.

To view the Admin Users in your account, go to Tools > Account Management > under the Social Account Management section > View Admin Users.

Permissions

There are 3 types of permissions associated with Social Magnet.  Permission to:

  • add social sites to your Real Magnet account
  • post content to social sites from Real Magnet, and
  • view your social sites’ feeds from within Real Magnet

By default, end users do not have permission to add social accounts, post to them or view social feeds.  Only Admin users (i.e. users with the ability to grant or remove Real Magnet permissions to other end users) can assign or remove these social permissions.

If you are an Admin user, you’ll see the line items Social Account Set Up and Assign Social Publishing Permissions under the Social Account Management section of the Account Management page under Tools.  If you are not, these items will not appear.

If your are NOT an Admin users, you can see who is by going to Tools > Account Management > Under the Social Account Management section > View Admin Users.  If your account has no Admin users, please email support@realmagnet.com and include your account number, username, and state that you have the authority to be an Admin user.

To assign social permissions, click the Assign Social Publishing Permissions link. From the pull-down list on the next page, select the User for whom you want to grant or remove permissions.

This takes you to the Social Publishing Permissions Page where you see a line item for each provisioned social site.   The page can be sorted by any of the columns (Channel, Account Name, Date Created and Created By.)

By selecting the appropriate check box(es), the selected user can be granted or denied permission to:

  • Provision social sites
  • View feeds for any provisioned social site
  • Post Content for any social site

Once you have made your selections, click the Save button and the user’s permissions will be updated.
