Sub-calendar Views segment projects and campaigns on your calendar in an uncluttered, filtered view - showing you exactly what you want want to see quickly.
Here are the most popular sub-calendar views teams add to their calendars.
Sometimes you need to see the cadence of specific projects - i.e. email marketing, social media, blog posts, etc. Create a sub-calendar view for certain project types to make sure you’re hitting your publishing goals and ensure projects stay aligned with your overall marketing goals.
Works great for email marketers.
Works great for social strategists.
Works great for proactive planning. Add company and industry events to your calendar as reminders to create promotional content. Use this view when proactively planning content for the next week, month, or quarter.
Multiple Teams + Stakeholders
This option works well for marketing teams creating collateral and managing projects for different stakeholders - i.e. multiple departments, clients, etc.
To take full advantage of sub-calendar views for these groups, create color labels and/or tags to categorize content by team or department. Use these settings to create custom sub-calendar views.
For Teams With Multiple Marketing Teams
If you have multiple teams working in CoSchedule, create sub-calendar views for each internal team to keep things organized.
For Teams With Multiple Stakeholders
Your team may have multiple stakeholders and/or audiences you’re trying to reach. Make sure you have a good balance of projects and social promotion for each department to keep key stakeholders happy and engaged.
Agencies and freelancers can create sub-calendar views for each client they work with. Now you can easily see the projects and campaigns active (and in progress) for each of your customers.
Bonus Tip: Share read-only links to these sub-calendar views with stakeholders to give them an overview of their marketing projects and social promotion.
To get a focused view on your work, create a private sub-calendar view that includes the tasks and projects you are responsible for.
Create a filter by “Team Member” and select yourself from the list. Save it as a private view by unclicking the “Share view with my team” box. This way it won’t get added to everyone’s sub-calendar views list.
You can be creative and build as many views as your team needs to stay organized and strategic.
Now you’re ready to create your first sub-calendar view. Go to your CoSchedule calendar to get started.
