Searching feeds

When you have tapped to view a feed, you can use the bar at the top of the screen to search for keywords in your conversations. Results will consider all text in your conversations including post captions, direct messages, comments, and nested comments.


Marking as read, adding labels, assigning, and deleting messages

When you’re viewing the items in your feed, you can tap and hold an item to take quick action on the conversation. A popup menu will appear allowing you to mark as read, assign/reassign, or delete the conversation.


When you’re viewing a post in the app, you can also quickly assign or mark a post a post as read by tapping either the checkmark or assign icon in the top right. Otherwise, you can assign, delete, mark as read, copy, or delete a post by tapping the three dots on the right-hand side and choosing from the menu below.

Similarly, you can tap More under any individual comments on a post to assign, mark as read, copy, or delete it.


When you’re viewing a direct message conversation, you can use the same assign and checkmark icons in the top right to mark the conversation as read or assign it. You can also tap and hold an individual direct message to assign, copy, or translate it.


Due to API restrictions, it’s currently not possible to delete your Instagram or LinkedIn posts. It’s also not possible to delete external X (Twitter) mentions, reposts (retweets), and replies.


To visit Settings, click the context menu (three lines) in the top left followed by the settings (cog) icon.

In Settings, you can click Switch team to choose between the teams you’re included in with your current Social Media Management organization. Switching teams will narrow down the app to exclude Engage items from any other team. If applicable, you can also tap Switch organization to choose from your other Social Media Management workspaces.

To enable push notifications, tap Notifications. You can choose to enable notifications either for new assignments (for you and your teams) or for any of your existing Engage feeds. Toggle any option on to enable.


It's not possible to enable push notifications for Listen Feeds in Engage.

You can also toggle Dark mode to switch between light mode and dark mode in the app or tap Log out at the bottom of the screen to exit.


Sorting feeds

When you’re viewing your feeds, click the Sort icon in the top right to sort your feed to show either newest or oldest items first.


Message templates and file attachments

Whether you’re leaving a new comment, replying to a comment, or replying to a direct message, you can choose to add images and videos from your camera roll or take a new photo. To the left of the text field, select the camera icon to access the device’s camera or choose the image icon to access your camera roll.

You can also select the clipboard icon on the right-hand side of the text field to choose from your team’s existing Engage Templates.
