Filtering is an effective way to view specific groups of Stories to more easily find the pieces you're looking for.

To filter your Stories, click the blue filter icon in the upper right hand corner of your screen (located on the Approved, Queue, and Drafts pages).

Once you click this icon, you will see all of your filtering options.

When filtering your Content Hub pages, you will see the following filter options (depending on the page you are viewing):

  1. Filter by Publish Date: Filter by the date each piece of Content will be published and could be eligible (if on the Approved page) to be included in News Digests: Today, Last Week, Current Week, Next Week, Last Month, Current Month, Next Month, or Custom.

  2. Filter by Expiration Date: Filter by the date each piece of Content will no longer be eligible to be included in News Digests: Today, Last Week, Current Week, Next Week, Last Month, Current Month, Next Month, or Custom.

  3. Filter by Categories: Filter by the Categories tagged to the pieces of Content.

  4. Filter by Segments: Filter by the Segments targeted or restricted to the pieces of Content.

  5. Filter by Source: Filter by the sources the pieces of Content were pulled in from.

  6. Filter by Post Priority: Filter by the posting priorities that you can set inside of your Distribution Settings: Normal (based on audience interests), Top Story to everyone, or Required to everyone. Note: This filter can be used to determine which Audience Members will receive a piece of Content and where it will be placed inside of their News Digest.

  7. Filter by Push Notifications: Filter by the push notifications set inside your Distribution Settings: No Push Notification or Push Notification. Note: You will only see this option if your Instance is using the Cerkl Broadcast Mobile App.

  8. Filter by Content type: Filter by the type of Content: Update/link, Need, or Event.

  9. Include Evergreen Content: Evergreen Content is Content that will never expire and will always be eligible to be included inside of your News Digests. Check this box (default) if you want to see your Instance's evergreen Content. Note: You can use this filter to check if the Content is still relevant to your Subscribers. If it is not still relevant, you can make the changes needed to that piece of Content.

  10. Include Expired Content: Checking this box will show you Content that has expired and is not eligible to be sent out in your News Digests (this box is unchecked by default). Note: This is a great way to see what Content has expired and if it is relevant or not to your Subscribers. If it is still relevant, you can always change the expiration date and approve it so that piece of Content can be eligible to be sent out in News Digests again. Please Note: If you republish a Story, and don’t modify its Distribution Settings, Subscribers who already received that Story will not receive it again.

Once you choose your filtering options, click Apply Filters to see your Content Hub filter by the options you selected.
