Why Am I Getting A Warning To 'Add More Evergreen Content'?

Inside of your Queue, you may notice a warning icon next to some of our posts as well as a notice that "some posts will not be published': 

Hover over the triangle warning icon for more instructions, then open the info pane on the right-hand of your screen: 

If you have too many Timeslots added to your Posting Plan, or not enough posts will see the following warning displayed in the info pane:

This warning is in place to prevent spam and ensure that you adhere to the terms and conditions for your connected Social Profiles. 

Note: You should never have more than 2x as many Timeslots as you have posts (for any Category-profile combination, or 'Sub-Queue’). 

This is to ensure that you don't post the same piece of content too frequently. 

Here are some examples of why this error may appear:

  1. Too many Timeslots: If you have a profile that has 10 Timeslots for the ‘Articles’ Category, you should have at least 5 Evergreen posts in the ‘Articles’ Category. This is to prevent the same content from being published more than twice per week.
  2. Not enough posts: If you have a profile with 5 Evergreen posts, but 6 Timeslots are on the same day, it would cause a post to be published twice on that day, which would be seen as duplicate spam.

How To Resolve

There are two ways to resolve this warning:

  1. Add some more Evergreen posts to the relevant Sub-Queue  
  2. Remove some Timeslots from the Sub-Queue's Posting Plan

For example:

  • If you have 10 Timeslots, and 3 Evergreen posts, for one Sub-Queue:
    • Add 2 more Evergreen posts to that Sub-Queue for a total of 5 Evergreen posts
  • If you have 6 Timeslots on one day, and only 5 Evergreen posts in your Queue:
    • Move one of the Timeslots to a different day (or remove it entirely)
    • Add 1 more Evergreen post to your Queue
