Posting your news is a great way to share your important updates, photos, results and more! If you've got an app, it's also a great way to keep your app feed fresh and your riders engaged. 👀
Go to your dashboard and navigate to News Management>News.
To post News, click Add New in the top right.
Complete the News Information
This includes the Title, News Category, any of your Staff you would like to give editing permission to, and the Status (whether it will display or not). Then click Next.
Give a Description
Next, you can choose to give your post a comment on your app feed and include emojis (if you leave it blank it will take an extract from the News Content section below).
Then write your post in the News Content and click Next in the bottom right when you're finished.
Note: The Hoofpick Biz Form fields are not required, but they are handy if you want to share a digital form in your post. This is great for surveys, polls, rider registration forms, etc. Find out more on Hoofpick Biz.
Now you can add Media to your News. Upload at least one image (PNG / JPEG) by selecting "Choose file".
You can also upload and attach documents by selecting "Choose file" to upload a PDF file from your device.
To add multiple images or documents, click on More and a new space will be provided for an additional upload.
Note: All files should be less than 2MB each, and total upload on any submission should not exceed 10MB. If you experience difficulties uploading multiple files, try a lesser quantity, finish creating the post, and then go back and edit it to add more.
When you've finished adding Media click Submit to save and post your News. Your News will appear in the list on your dashboard. From here, you can Edit, View or Delete any News by using the action buttons next to it.
Your News will be live on your Hoofpick profile under the News tab and on your app feed with Hoofpick Apps.
Pro tip: App owners can boost their post by sharing it directly from their app feed to their Facebook page or group, send to WhatsApp contacts, etc. 🚀
