How to Use Planoly’s New Feature: DRAFTS

Here at Planoly, we’re all about listening to feedback from our community to improve our platform. We’re constantly working to improve every aspect of Planoly to create a better experience, not only for your users but for ourselves as well! Our newest feature has been cultivated by ideas and feedback from our avid users, such as photographers and bloggers (thank you fam!). With that said, we’d like to introduce our newest feature: DRAFTS.

What is Drafts?

If you have too many images/media and get overwhelmed with uploading content to your Plan GRID, then this feature is for you. Our DRAFTS feature will allow you to curate your media for multiple campaigns on different drafts until you’re ready to use it. The benefit of this feature is that rather than having all of your unscheduled images in your Plan GRID all at once, you can separate and organize them into different drafts first.

This helpful feature is available on the APP and WEB dashboard. Here are step-by-step directions on how to use both APP and WEB along with our pro tips:

How to Use Drafts on APP:

  1. Go to your GRID view and select the “DRAFTS” icon (plus sign with grid) located on the upper right corner.
  2. Tap on the plus (“add”) icon at the bottom of the screen to add a new DRAFT.
  3. Name your DRAFT based on the type of images or campaign (i.e., Hawaii Trip).
  4. Once created, tap on the DRAFT you want to add media to; then tap on the plus (“add”) icon at the bottom of the screen to add your media (images/videos/gifs). You can add media from your camera roll, Dropbox, Google drive or add Placeholders.
  5. You can now drag and drop to curate your media within your DRAFT.
