Copy the code that appears and head back over to Optimal Blue Social Cloud.

Paste the code then click Authorize. Click Save Changes.

Now it's time to set up that Auto Import

Click on Auto Import, located under the 'Create' section on the left side menu. Click +New Source

Write in a title and select where you want the importer to pull from. You can click Toggle Advanced to set up category tags and default accounts for this content if you want.

Best Practices Tip: Keeping titles and categories aligned makes staying organized easy! For example, say I wanted to create a schedule for "Motivation Monday" that publishes my content weekly on Monday. I have a Google Drive Folder specifically for "Motivation Monday" and have set-up this import to tag all content with the category "Motivation Monday". All new content to this folder is going to auto-import into Social Cloud and from now on this content is going to auto-populate without me ever having to worry about it again!

Click 'Select All' or scroll and click the content you want to add. Then, Click Import Items

You did it! Social Cloud will import content from your folder every hour!
