Skip, Shuffle, or Un-Shuffle Posts to Reorder Your Content

Can I rearrange my queue? Can I change the order of posts in the queue?

By default, Edgar publishes posts in a last in, first out order.  Your freshest post is published first before any older posts are recycled.  But, there are a couple ways to mix things up.

Skip a Post

Click the Skip button at the top right of a post in the Queue. Edgar will skip over that post and replace it with the next post in the category, moving all other queued posts for that category up one time slot as well. 

Note: If a post has an X button instead of a Skip button, that means the post was scheduled for a specific date and time when you created it. These posts are published in addition to the time slots on your schedule page. Clicking the X will remove the scheduled time and put the post back into the regular posting rotation for that category.

Shuffle Your Categories

Every category has a Shuffle button on the Categories page. Click it to randomize the posts in that category and rebuild your queue. 

Check out the Queue to see the shuffled order of posts. Don’t like how they look? Head back to Categories and Shuffle again.

Your Library will always display your posts in the order they were entered, so it's easy for you to see what's been added most recently. You’ll only see the new shuffled order when you view your Queue.

Un-shuffle your Categories

To un-shuffle a category so it will post in the default last in, first out order again, follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Bulk Edit.

  2. On the left-hand side of the page, use the Category drop down filter to choose the category you want to un-shuffle. 

  3. Select all of the posts in the category using the check box drop down menu. 

  4. From the Actions menu, select the Remove Accounts option. Uncheck all of your accounts and click Apply.

  5. From the Actions menu, select the Add Accounts option. Check the social accounts for these posts and click Apply.

Because you removed the account associations and then reconnected them, Edgar will recognize these posts as new and the category will return to the default last in, first out posting order.
