Adding a draft post

Sometimes you start creating a post and decide to leave it in between (maybe due to some urgent work or it might just be that you don't have your thoughts organized yet). For such scenarios Dash provides a wonderful way out, that is, "Draft Posts". Create a post and save it as a draft post and publish it later by accessing it from the locker.

1. Add a post (thought, question or task)

Note: Learners are not allowed to create task posts.

2. Tap Post Now at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

3. Select Save as Draft from the drop-down list.

Note: You cannot have a draft post with more than one classroom.

4. Tap SAVE AS DRAFT at the top-right corner of the screen.

5. A confirmation notification appears. Your draft post is created and safely put into your locker.

6. You can tap on the nofification to directly access the draft post in your locker.

Adding a scheduled post

Schedule post gives you the ability to schedule your posts for a future date and time. You can create any post and decide a suitable future date and time for the post to be shared to the required classrooms. The scheduled post will be shared automatically at that time.

For instance, you find some free time on your weekends and decide to create a post that you need to share with your class on Monday, 8 AM. All you need to do is create a post and schedule it to be shared at 8 AM on Monday. This way you get to utilize your free weekend time and have one thing less to worry about on the usually hectic Mondays. Now let's see how you can do it:

1. Add a post (thought, question or task)

Note: Learners are not allowed to create task posts.

2. Tap Post Now at the bottom right of the screen.

3. Select Schedule from the drop-down list.

Note: You cannot have schedule a post with more than one classroom.

4. Tap the Date and Time stamp to set the date and time of the schedule post respectively.

5. Tap SCHEDULE at the top-right corner of the screen.

6. A confirmation notification appears. Your scheduled post is created and safely put into your locker.

7. You can tap on the nofification to directly access the scheduled post in your locker.

Deleting a post

You can delete a post that you have added to the newsfeed. As an instructor you can delete any post added to your classroom. Whereas, as a learner you can only delete posts created by you.

1. Tap the ellipsis (...) icon for the post you wish to delete.

2. Select Delete to delete the post.

3. A message appears while the post is being deleted. The post will be deleted. All gone!

Note: Deleting posts on Teamie is permanent. The data cannot be retrieved later.

Adding a post anonymously

Sometimes people need to initiate discussions anonymously in their classrooms or they feel comfortable commenting anonymously. This would prove really helpful as some learners hesitate to post their real thoughts or won't post at all due to the fear of getting criticised or if they think their ideas will not have much impact. Anonymous posting /commenting /replying would encourage more learners to come forward and share their ideas.

When an anonymous post is shared, learners can remain anonymous to one another but the instructor will still know their identity. This would encourage learners to speak their mind, and at the same time maintain the decorum of their classrooms.

1. Add a post (thought, question or task)

Note: Learners are not allowed to create task posts.

2. Tap on your profile picture.

3. As soon as you tap on your profile picture, you become anonymous. Tap POST to share your posts or schedule / draft it for later.

4. Your post will be shared anonymously to other learners but instructors will still know your identity.

Creating a post with hashtags

The hashtag works like a filter in Teamie to search posts on specific hashtag. The symbol of hashtags is "#". They make it easy to find relevant content by search on specific hashtag. You can use hashtags (also know as 'tags') to categorize your posts in Dash.

From the Teamie app itself you can create hashtags or use the already existing hashtags of a classroom while adding a post. Let's see how:

1. Add a post (thought, question or task)

Note: Learners are not allowed to create task posts.

1. Type the "#" symbol before a relevant keyword or phrase in your post without space.

Note 1: You can use multiple hashtags.

Note 2: Tap to use any of the suggested tags that are shown in the post creation area. These are the hashtags that are already used in some other posts created in the classroom and might interest you. So enjoy reusing the hashtags!

2. Tap POST at the top-right corner of the screen to add your post.

3. Teamie will create a link for each hashtag that you have added in your post. Posts that have the same hashtag will be grouped together in our web platform Dash. Tapping the hashtag will show all the posts that are marked by the hashtag on web.

Commenting on a post

Now you can comment on a post with an audio recording while on the move with the Teamie app. You can record audio not only for the comments but also for the replies. Just like the web, you can post as many audio recordings as you like in a single comment or a reply.

After you have recorded an audio, you can playback the recording and listen to it before you actually post the comment. It's not just the audio that you can attach, you can also attach images and videos in your comments and replies.

To add one or more attachments, tap attachment.

3. Add attachments to your comment as per your requirement.

Note: You can add multiple attachments as well as audio recordings in your comments upto 10.
