Many of the advanced features in Raftr are only available to users with administrative permissions in their community. Here is a comprehensive list of the tools available to users with specific permissions to help them manage their communities. To learn more about these features, click on the linked text in the descriptions.
Tools for Premium Raft Leaders and Co-leaders
The following features are only available to users who are the Leader or Co-leader of at least one Premium Raft. This means that any member of a Premium Raft can be granted access to use these tools by an existing Raft Admin.
Choose a specific time for a Post, Event, or Poll to be published on a Premium Raft. There is a standard limit of two scheduled Posts per admin per Premium Raft per day.
Copy existing content from a Post, Event, Poll, or Announcement and reuse it as a template on a Premium Raft. Nearly all content will be copied over and the author will have the ability to edit it (with a notable exception being Event times and repeat cadences).
Create an Announcement to pin to your Campus Page or send via push notification or email to your members. There is a standard limit of two Announcements per Raft per day.
