The ability to assign mentions to your team

The recent enhancement gives you the ability to bring the attention of your team member to a particular mention. If you want them just to take note of the mention, or when a fast response to the particular brand mention is required, this is the way to do it! Ideally, this productivity feature on Mentionlytics enables you to highlight a particular mention, and even better, ask for a particular action from the team member.

Label social media mentions / Add comments

Mentionlytics’ new feature additionally allows the labeling of mentions. For better brand monitoring you can label social media mentions or even add some notes to the mentions. This is a powerful feature as it makes collaboration easier, enabling you to track the mentions. The ability to add some notes on mention alert enables you to remember easily, why it is important for further action.

Filter mentions by label or assignment

Let’s suppose that you want to follow up on whether an action is taken by the team members. The new feature allows you to filter important notifications by the label, or by assignment. Therefore, you can check the mentions assigned to team member TM, or mentions labeled XY.

Step4. Enter the main keyword

Now, you need to get more specific as the keyword entered is what will be tracked. Therefore, be sure to enter the specific keywords you want to monitor. Since we are monitoring all mentions relating to Ryanair, we will use the word as the main keyword in this demo campaign.

Step5. Limit the results to language, or country

What sources or regions are you interested in monitoring? Choose the specific data sources you want to monitor. You can limit to a specific region or a particular language. In most cases, social media users will avoid sharing their location. You can leave this to default so that you monitor mentions from any country and in any language.

Alternatively, you may want to monitor certain websites or social media platforms. Use the data sources option to set this parameter.

The posts from the social profiles to monitor will now be collected as mentions regardless of the keywords that appear on those profiles. If you wish to add more profiles, click on the tab labeled “+Click Here to add more profiles”. This opens a dialog box asking you to specify the media type, and the URL or the profile name. The option allows you to refine social media monitoring to a particular profile.

Allowing e-mail alerts ensures you do not miss important mentions where the action is needed. Therefore, it is advisable that you define the e-mail address where the push notifications will be sent. In addition, specify if you need a copy of the report as an attachment. Do not forget to set a convenient emailing frequency.
