Connecting the Vista Social Media Calendar

The Vista Social Media Calendar is an essential component of a number of social and managed programs. The calndar is a function of integration with Microsoft systems, and it enables a level of control and integration that will empower your business in ways that'll make your competitors fuzzy little heads explode.

Important: Creating a calendar requires that your business Microsoft Azure application is created. The application creating is part of early onboarding, and the Social Media calendar is an early action taken before assigning your business to automated content programs.

  Creating the Social Calendar

Creating your Vista calendar is often easier in the web-based version of Outlook. Log into Outlook using the primary MS365 email you have registered to Yabber. Open up the calendar panels and locate the 'Add Calendar' option.

Vista Calendar Add

  Pictured: The option to 'Add Calendar' in Outlook. If you're accessing the page on an Apple computer, the screen may present a little differently.

Click 'Add Calendar'.

A modal options panel will be returned. Select the menu option called 'Add Blank Calendar'.

Vista Outlook Blank Calendar

  Pictured: A modal options panel will be returned. Select the menu option called 'Add Blank Calendar'.

Create a calendar called "Social Media" under the 'My Calendar' option (default). It must be two works, and the first letter of each work must be upper-case.

Vista Social Calendar

  Pictured: The Vista Social Media calendar. You may optionally select a colour and icon. The calendar must be called 'Social Media' (exactly as shown).

Click 'Save'. Close the window.

  Registering Vista in Yabber

The calendar is now created but Yabber does not yet know it exists. We must now reconnect to Yabber in order to update our calendar options.

Connect Microsoft

  Pictured: Connect to your Microsoft application. This will update all Microsoft connectivity and assets, including calendars.

We should now connect the Social Media calendar to Yabber. The easiest way of locating Vista is via the 'V' icon in the header, although you may also access via the Social Media panel. The entry page to Vista will show connectivity.

Yabber Connect Vista

  Pictured: If the created 'Social Media' calendar was successfully created and found, it will show by default in the Select menu. Click the black button to register the calendar to Yabber.

If the calendar was successfully registered, a message will be returned indicating as such. The calendar will now be used for managed social and articles, and it may be used to post content to social media.

Additional Vista FAQs should be referenced for an understanding of how the calendar is used.

Yabber's Social Media modules are very extensive. Some of the social features, systems, and modules, are shown below.

We've shared FAQs that showed you how to create Wistia video customisations, sharing profiles, turnstiles, and postroll CTA profiles (all linked below). This FAQ will show you how to update an individual video or all videos that are part of a project.

  About Wistia

Wistia is a third-party service that provides videos hosting for a monthly subscription. It is quite costly, but the platform does provide for three free videos and we encourage all our users to sign up for this offer.

Wistia provides a large number of integrated video features that enable far greater insights into video performance when compared to platforms such as YouTube, and the level of statistical data returned for each user is significant.

Yabber integrates with Wistia in such a way that we effectively emulate most features of that service. This tight level of connectivity enables features such as the email collection turnstiles (or email capture form 'gates' within a video) to be used for engagement and not just consumption.

This FAQ should be read in company with those listed below since when you're updating a video you'll generally update all of the profiles shown at the same time.

Wistia features may be referenced under this article in the 'Related FAQ' section.

Wistia: You may sign up for a free account on Wistia at Wistia.com . Ensure you follow the FAQ on connecting the API and Webhooks to fully enable all of Yabbers features.

  Wistia Source - Yabber/Wistia or Elementor

In a previous FAQ we detailed how to apply customisations to an embedded Wistia Video. In order for Yabber and/or Wistia options to override the values defined in Elementor, you should navigate your way to the 'Settings' panel and define your preferred source via the 'Website' option.

Elementor or Wistia

  Pictured: In order for Yabber and/or Wistia options to override the values defined in Elementor, you should navigate your way to the 'Settings' panel and define your preferred source via the 'Website' option. Using the Elementor option is one that is typically used by those that do no subscribe to Yabber in any way.

If the source is set to 'Elementor', all Yabber and Wistia options are ignored, and if set to Yabber, all Elementor options are ignored.

Using Yabber profiles and options are obviously preferred since you may globally update all videos as required, and options can be applied without messing around within your website.
