Classifieds/Listings: Creating and managing content


NOTESystem Administrators can change the name of this view (via Admin Settings > Views and Functions > Manage Views and Options) so "Classifieds" or "Listings" may not be what appears in your intranet's Main Navigation.

UPDATEOnly Classifieds Creators and Managers will have permission to create ads and listings. For orgs who were current Jostle customers as of March 15, 2020, each of their users were automatically given Creator permissions and any users who were already News Editors were automatically giving Manager permissions.

Managers can also control Creator permissions and set Categories via the gear icon in the upper right corner of Classifieds/Listings.
