If you’re a contributor to Status who wants something (blog, recurring event, poll for community, hiring shoutout etc.) on Status’ social media and it may or may not be time-sensitive please use a WeKan card, invites will be going out this week.
The Engagement team is experimenting with an alternative KanBan board to trello that is Free OSS called WeKan.
For now the required pieces to making a card
- Post itself (twitter / fb please include relevant hashtags, and accounts to tag with exact spelling)
- Image asset (does it need an image asset? Please include in a comment)
- Timeline (is it urgent? Recurring? Slate a date if time sensitive on the calendar section)
- Motivation (if relevant)
This will be a solution in tandem with our reactive newsroom and does not mean you “cannot” post on our.status for example or anywhere else without a card, this will only help the social calendar cadence of scheduling.
For this specific experiment we’re migrating our pre-existing trello social media posting board to a public board that anyone on the Core team can access and add cards too. This means if you previously weren’t sure where to ask to get a topic or post on social media through the status’ main account whether it be a blog you’re writing, community poll you’d like to do, job posting or various other reasons our core team would like to access a post there will now be a system in place for you to do so.
The guidelines around making a card are a WIP and open discussion.
For now if you have something you’d like to get across social media channels, invites will be going out to the social calendar public board org wide first and sooner than later to our community members that aren’t core team.
Drop any relevant cards in the public board under “Core Team Content for publishing” with these details
Please include any feedback you have about this as we hope it will be a tool to empower across our team as we grow.
