The story feeds feature on AccuEd Connect is a great way for users on your site to create stories, share posts, and stay in contact with each other. For someone to create a post a user must be in a channel, but only Admin can make channels and add users to channels. Below are instructions on how an admin can create channels for a site.

  1. Log in to your AccuEd Connect site.
  2. Once logged in, find the "Story Feeds" tab on the left-hand side. Click it.
  3. Once in "Story Feeds", look in the top right of the screen underneath the words Explore, you will find three options to click on: "Story Feeds", "Manage Channels", and "Moderate Channels". 
  4. Select "Manage Channels".
  5. In the top right-hand corner, there will be a blue button that says "Create Channel". 
  6. Click the "Create Channel" button.
  7. Once you have clicked the button, you will be prompted to fill out the channel name box and the description box for the channel.
  8. Once the channel has been made, locate the channel, and then click the three blue dots on the far right side of the screen located next to the desired channel.
  9. When the blue dots have been selected, you will be given 5 options: Edit, Manage Users, Manage Groups, Moderate Channels, and Delete.
  10. Select Manage Users.
  11. Once selected, click the box next to the users you want added to the channel. The box will turn blue with a white checkmark in the middle of it.
  12. Once all desired users have been selected, click the blue confirmed button on the bottom right-hand side of the screen.
  13. Your channel will be made.  

Admins, please be sure to add yourself to channels as well. Only users and admins added to channels can view and create posts.
