🌷 7 Ways to Spring Clean Your Platform 🌷

Featuring helpful tips to clean, update, & declutter your platform this Spring (or all year round)! 

1. Delete or Update Admins & Permissions

Keep an eye on out of date Admins before they become too much to manage.

  • Are there Admins that are no longer responsible for moderation?
  • Can you improve your approval response time by designating additional Admins?
  • Can you elevate any Admins’ Permissions?
  • Are you harnessing help from “Trusted” Users or “Group Officers”? 

2. Complete a Filter Audit (then ask Localist for feedback!)

A long Filter list is difficult for Admins and Users to both assign and navigate. 

  • Can Filters be combined to decrease length?
  • Do you have any Filters that aren’t being used?
  • Is there a better Localist feature more tailored to your needs?

Auditing doesn’t just stop with Filters–Once again, your platform may be cluttered with unused or out-of-date Places, Groups or Departments.

  • Are there inactive Groups or Departments that need to be removed?
  • Are there new Places that should be added?
  • Are the photos up to date for all Places, Groups, & Departments?
  • Are there any duplicates?
