Cerkl is all about getting the right content to the right people at the right time, and while we at Cerkl take care of most of that, you as the author can impact who you want your content to be sent to through the Distribution Settings

To access Distribution Settings, go to your Content Manager, click on your Content Icon of choice, and then find the yellow gear at the top right hand corner of the screen and wallah! A sidebar will appear with various settings for you to control.

The first option is Posting Priorities. This allows you to control to whom you want the content to be sent. The default option is what we recommend for most content. It will send articles out to subscribers based on their chosen interests and their interactions with past articles. This where Cerkl shines in understanding what content your subscribers want to engage with. 

The second two options are provided for occasions when you have a piece of content that you want all subscribers to see regardless of their interests. 

Want to be sure everyone in your audience get's this article? Sweet, choose "to everyone" from the Positing Priority drop down. This will ensure that all subscribers receive this article somewhere in their newsletter. 

The "to everyone as the first story" will guarantee that this piece of content shows up as the first story in everyone's newsletter regardless of their interests. 

Both of these priorities have a "How many times" choice. This will allow you to choose if you want that piece of content to appear in everyone's newsletter just once or multiple times. If multiple times is selected, you will be asked to select a "Pinned Date". This content will appear in every newsletter until the selected pinned date. 

The second set of options found in Distribution Settings is around the Segments you would like to send a piece of content to. You can check one or multiple segments for each piece of content. You can even search the specific segment you're looking for (hoping to save you a little more time) :). 

There is also an option to make sure that a certain piece of content is only sent to specific segments. You can make this adjustment by flipping the switch "Restrict to these Segments" on. 

Lastly in Distribution Settings, you can choose whether the content is shown in Aptly, and if you would like to allow comments. 

If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to reach out to us at support@cerkl.com! Or use the help bot in the bottom right hand corner of any cerkl.com page for a quick answer.
