Setting a post to Use Once tells Edgar to publish that post only one time and then retire it.  Use Once is perfect for one-off updates, time-sensitive posts that have limited relevancy, or any other content that’s just not evergreen.

Set Use Once When Adding New Content

On the Add New Content page, you can designate a post as Use Once by clicking the Use Once check box under Advanced Settings.

Each variation of the post will be published to each social account selected one time only. Once all variations of a Use Once post have been published to each selected social account, the post will appear as grayed out and retired in the Library.

Bulk Edit

Designate multiple content as Use Once items using Bulk Edit. Select the post(s) you want to update, and check the Use Once box next to the post. Then, click Update Selected at the bottom.

Bulk Import

When importing content from a spreadsheet, check the Use Once box next to your posts to designate them as Use Once posts. 

RSS Imports

When importing content from an RSS feed, check the Use Once checkbox when you create the feed, and all content from that feed will be set as Use Once.
