Comments: ContentCal has enabled my virtual team to work together seamlessly across a number of clients and the agency has grown because of it.

Pros: - Very intuitive. I had my account up and running within 5 minutes. I was then quickly able to add team members and clients. We advise anyone we train to use ContentCal, many have been using other scheduling tools and they comment they find it an easy switch to make and enjoy the simplicity of it. - You can see your content across all your social channels on one screen. Want to change a post? No problem - just drag and drop it to another day. - The customer services team are super responsive and any issue is quickly resolved. - Great for planning. Each calendar has a planning channel where you can save content ideas ready for when you want to use them and also add categories for content. - Option to save your favourite hashtags to each calendar so you don't have to start from scratch every time. - The approval workflow allows multiple people to schedule to a calendar and provides the client /account owner ultimate sign off. It makes collaboration across a virtual team really easy. - No need for unsightly long links as there is a link shortener integrated into the tool.

Cons: The occaisional glitch with the new release but nothing that hasn't been sorted quickly by the customer service team.

Outstanding support from the team behind this great scheduling tool

Comments: OUtstanding - my posting to platforms is much more planned and organised. My ability to view the rest of my team's posting for their clients is seamless. All of which gives me more time to work on my business not in my business.

Pros: It is very easy to use, the layout is simple and intuitive and visually it is easy to see what the status is of each post.

Cons: There is very little I don't like, due to the age of the tool some aspects of it are not as advanced as its competitors BUT the outstanding customer service, flexibility of the team, and constant upgrades far outweigh any cons. I moved away from ContentCal, once, as I was wooed by another glitzy product however I soon returned!!

A kick ass platform that solved a lot of Agency needs

Comments: ContentCal has provided the following benefits to us and our Clients:
- Transparency
- Seamless organisation
- Accountability
- Responsibility
- A centralised social media tool
- Easy campaign planner
- Integration with multiple social channels
All the above has made social media team more effective and efficient, communication is simple and everyone feels in control of their own domain.

Pros: The number 1 thing we love is that fact that it is always developing. New features are added by the team, based on clients input and feedback. The company gives you a real feeling that this a tool that is built with the client and their customers first. The simple UI is fantastic, the drag and drop features, the clear calendar, the NO MESS (we've had some messy calendar before). As odd as it is, there is literally no learning curve, it's just simple and it works. Clients adapt quickly and all roles are set up immediately and work straight away. The feeling of professionalism that is transferred between agency and client is a HUGE bonus, and one that should be marketed by the team! Everyone is happy and organised, whether its our clients, our team, or our tech provider. Its a tripple win.

Cons: Sometimes they accidentally email our clients and aim to sell them the tool that they are already part of, but I believe that is more a CRM issue than a specific software issue. More focus on campaigns that the social media posts will be part of. There is a huge emphasis on the micro details, but not enough (yet) on the macro details of the campaign at large.

Thank you for saving me time

Comments: Everyone I have met or spoken with from ContentCal has been able to answer my questions and solve my problems. I love the ease of use of Content Cal and it has saved me hours of time each month in switching over from Hootsuite.

Pros: I love the pinboard and the ability to duplicate posts easily. I run a Twitter chat and have a base of tweets that are the same each week. It’s saved me hours each month to have the pinboard as with other providers I had to copy and paste all the content.

Cons: That there isn’t a mobile app that uses all areas of the desktop site. I currently use a different app for Instagram.

Too glitchy

Comments: I really want to love it, but it makes the job of scheduling so much slower.

Pros: The visual nature of it, the approval flow, the ability to plan content across all channels, the pinboard posts - so much, it's a great scheduling tool!

Cons: I found it to be very slow and glitchy. I find myself having to wait to let the app catch up while I'm typing copy. It duplicates posts multiple times, posts disappear, I can't always change the status (the 'send for approval' option just disappears). It also doesn't pull across images from links for Twitter - you can see them, but they won't upload.
