Load content

After channel activation, you are ready to load custom content. Your channel content consists of stories and events with the following elements:

  • Headline - The title of the story
  • Text - The story body
  • Location - An address where the story takes place
  • Image - Optional photo relevant to the story
  • Time - Optional date and time for events
You may enter each story on a story input form available to members. Alternatively, you may batch load many stories using a data spreadsheet. If you already have the data in a digital form, we recommend that you use the data spreadsheet to initialize content.
