In Global System Settings (which you'll find under the "System Configuration" section of the Welcome menu), you can define a variety of system-wide settings and controls. The seventh section in Global System Settings, titled "Social Media" and available by clicking "SOCIAL MEDIA" in the "JUMP TO" links, lets you link your WCONLINE site to your center's or institution's social media pages (so that clients can easily get to those pages from WCONLINE).
If you would like to add your center's social media accounts to WCONLINE, simply enter the missing part of the URL (defined by "X") for the applicable service in the appropriate field. Each social media company listed also provides an example of what to enter. For example, the BLOGGER field shows "X.blogspot.com." If your Blogger account was at the URL "thewritecenter.blogspot.com," then you would enter just "thewritecenter" in the BLOGGER field. Similarly, if you had an Instagram account that was accessed via the URL "instagram.com/ReadyToHelp," then you would just enter "ReadyToHelp" in the INSTAGRAM field (since the INSTAGRAM field shows "instagram.com/X" and since you only enter the "X" portion of your web address).
Once you've saved your social media links, WCONLINE will automatically display the icons for those services at the bottom of most pages in the system. Clients can click on any of the icons to be taken to your page on the applicable social media site. Only the icons for the social media sites for which you've entered a value will appear.
OPTIONAL ADVANCED TWITTER INTEGRATION
If your center or institution has a Twitter account, then you can optionally configure WCONLINE to send schedule openings to your Twitter feed. These notices are the same notices that are sent out via the waiting list option in Schedule Management. By Tweeting openings, you allow clients who follow your Twitter feed to see and take advantage of those openings.
To set up the optional integration:
Once you've enabled the Twitter integration, WCONLINE will post a message to your Twitter feed whenever an appointment is canceled on the current or on the current and next day. That Tweet will look like:
