Moderation gives you the ability to review and approve content before it appears on your public-facing TINT. This feature is essential when using hashtag connections and other public channels where you might not always get relevant, or appropriate, content.
With Moderation enabled on a connection, new content that is aggregated will always enter a Private queue. From there, you'll need to manually approve this content if you'd like to see it on a public display or website. Approval can be done in the Content panel of the TINT Editor at www.tintup.com, or via the TINT mobile App for iOS and Android.
Enabling and Disabling Moderation
You can enable Moderation on new connections by selecting "Manually approve posts before making them public." before clicking "+Add":
If this option is left unselected Moderation will be disabled for the connection. This means that new content will automatically be approved and will appear on any public displays or websites you have using the TINT.
If you want to add or remove Moderation on an existing connection, select the Content panel on the left-hand side of the screen. Then, locate the connection under the Connections You've Added section. Click the Lock icon beside the connection to enable/disable moderation:
Views can be selected on the top of the page when viewing the Content panel:
All Posts is the default view. This view displays all content - regardless of whether it is public or private. Here is an example of the All Posts view showing both public posts (indicated by a ✓ symbol) and private posts (indicated by a + symbol):
Other views include Public (which displays only public posts), Private (which displays only private posts), and Trash (which displays deleted content, or content that was removed due to rules). You can toggle between these views at any time.
Approving, Rejecting, and Deleting Posts
Approving private content is as easy as clicking the + icon on any post:
To reject public content, just click the ✓ icon:
You can also permanently delete content from your TINT. Click the More Options icon (...) above any post, and then select delete:
You can also change the visibility of multiple posts at the same time. Select the box found above any post you like, and then choose whether you'd like to make posts Public, Private, or Delete them:
