Setting Up Streams

The Oktopost Streams allow you to monitor social media channels in real-time and engage with your audience.

Creating Streams

To create a new stream, simply head over to the Streams tab in your account, click on the big plus button and select the desired stream type.

When creating a new stream you will have to select the profile or page which will be used to request the data from the social network. The same profile or page will later be used when engaging with posts in that stream.

Organizing streams

Once you created a few streams you can also start organizing them into tabs located above the streams. Each tab can contain several streams, and while the number of streams per tab is not limited, we recommend a maximum amount of 5-7 streams per tab according to your screen width.
