Evergreens repeat the last enqueued request for each content item. If you have not restricted the previous request to fixed channels, then the new publishing opportunity will publish to the new channel.
Okay, so just to make sure I understand this correctly.
I have a blog X and created in the blog article via Social Publisher button a evergreen (=yes) to tweet to @twitteraccount and @facebookaccount
This blog will be handled as an evergreen and get reposted conform the evergreen schedule to twitter and facebook.
When I want to change this evergreen to NOT post on facebook anymore I open blog X, change the channels (delete the facebook channel) in the social publisher screen, press submit and save the document.
The posts for this evergreen blog will now only go to twitter and not to facebook anymore.
If correct, then I will run into 'problems with the following use case:
I want to create a new one time post for blog x to linkedin only. (I have set the content plugin to process modifications)
I open blog x in the article manager, press social publish, erase the info in there and set it accordingly evergreen = no, channel = linkedin and date / time of publishing.
I submit these changes,
I save and close the blog
A new request is generated for blog x to linkedin. > the request is posted on linkedin (one time)
What happens is that the blog gets posted to linked in, but what also happens is that the evergreen settings are deleted: this bog gets removed from the evergreen queue.
Due to the many possible settings it is very hard to understand what happens and what actions impacts what result. I am trying to come up with some best practises for specific use cases. This will help educate users in working with Joocial: currently they have no clue as to what they are doing resulting in unexpected results.
In the Virtual Media Manager there is also the setting > Evergreen Strategy > Channels.
The description says: "Choose post channels where messages are going to be published. This settings override the default routing to publish to all channels'
I interpret that as:
I create a blog, set it as evergreen = yes. Leave channels empty > submit and save & close blog.
Normally that evergreen blog will post to all channels (as I left it empty)
When I have set the above setting, the blog will in that case only go to the specified channel(s)
Now what happens when I create a blog, evergreen =yes, channels = twitter, facebook, linkedin
In the Evergreen strategy setting I have set the override channel to twitter.
Where will this evergreen be posted to: to twitter only (as I have defined this as the override channel, or to twitter, facebook, linkedin (bypassing the override channel)?
