Getting started with Moderation

All aggregated content appears in the Moderation section of Buzzspark, where you can take further actions, such as selecting which pieces of content you wish to Publish, Disable, or leaves as Queued.

Buzzspark provides a full-featured, responsive interface that supports moderating content:
by single moderators or large moderation teams
on mobile devices, laptop, or desktop computers
in real-time (Live mode)

Layout of the Moderation View

The moderation view can be accessed by navigating to Curate > Moderate from the left menu.

The Moderation View interface is divided into three sections:

The Moderation Toolbar (top)
The Content section (middle)
The Pagination Bar (bottom)

By default, the Moderation View displays all aggregated Content with the most recent items shown first. The Moderation Toolbar provides several ways in which you can narrow down and view a specific segment of content.

The Moderation Toolbar

The Refine button lets you refine the Content based on Network, Tags, Media Type, Products, Status and more. See Refining Content in Moderation View for further details.

Once you have refined the content and adjusted the interface settings to your needs, you can save the settings using the Saved View drop downs so the exact settings can be quickly reloaded in the future. You can also share saved views with your team members which helps save time and is particularly useful when individual team members are managing content for specific campaigns or purposes. See Creating, Sharing and Managing Saved Views in Moderation for further details.

The Display Filters drop down lets you refine Content based on Filters configured in your Buzzspark account and is a quick way to moderate content based on where it’s distributed. For example, selecting a Filter that feeds a specific Display Widget on a landing page, will show only Content that matches that Filter’s criteria. See Using Display Filters in Moderation for further details.

The Bulk Actions toolbar allows you to perform actions on multiple Tiles (pieces of Content) in one go. For example, you may wish to Publish or add Tags to multiple Tiles in one go. This toolbar is hidden by default, appearing only when one or more Tiles are selected in the Content section of the interface. See Bulk Actions in Moderation View for further details.

The Live Mode toggle switches between Live and Manual modes. Live mode is particularly useful for quickly moderating fast flowing content for example, where content is shown on large screen displays at live events. See Live Moderation for further details. In Manual mode, moderators can page through content using the Pagination bar at the bottom of the interface. Newly aggregated content only appears when jumping back to the first page or when the moderation view is refreshed.

The Grid View and Tile View buttons let you select how Tiles are displayed in the Content section of the interface. Tile View is optimised for smaller screens and is the default for mobile devices. See Tile and Grid Views in Moderation for further details.

You can select the number of Tiles that are shown in the Content section via the Show drop down.

The Search field allows you to further refine content, returning only content that contains the specified search terms within a Tile’s text, or the creator’s display or screen names.

The Content Section

The content section of the moderation interface shows Tiles matching the criteria specified in the Moderation Toolbar. The appearance of Tiles within the Content section differs depending on whether Grid or Tile view is selected. See Tile and Grid Views in Moderation for further details.

The Pagination Bar

The pagination bar remains fixed at the bottom of the moderation interface, except in Live mode where is it automatically hidden, and allows you to:

Select the number of Tiles to show per page via the Show drop down
Navigate between pages of Content by jumping to the first, previous, next, last, or a specified page number.
