Multi-Channel Delivery

Give site visitors the choice of viewing Web content when and how they want it providing the best possible user experience. CommonSpot gives you endless ways to present and deliver content, regardless of the delivery channel. Whether RSS, email, iPhone, social media sites, or any other communications channel, you control how and where your brand is presented.

Social Media Manager

Create, schedule, and manage social media posts to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ automatically from your CommonSpot site. Streamline the publishing process using a central dashboard saving social media managers valuable time.

Publish and Share

CommonSpot enables authorized contributors to either submit their content, or 'Submit and Share' it with popular social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and so on) without having to navigate away from your website for faster social media publishing.

Social Media Stream

Combine posts from chosen social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+, or WordPress) and display them in a single data stream on your website to better engage website visitors with real-time content, promotions, and peer conversations.

Performance Analysis Tool

Advanced site performance settings give you all the tools you need to meet the specific resource demands and needs of everyone using your site. Use in coordination built-in performance analysis tools to tune and optimize site response.

In-Page Google Analytics

Contributors can now access both In-Page and Google Analytics from the left pane within the page view. To enable subsite access via a subdomain, you can now specify a portion of the path to bypass when passing paths to Google Analytics.

Manual Ordering for Content Reuse

For Custom Elements and Page Indexes configured for reuse, CommonSpot now enables manual ordering of result records through a drag-and-drop interface. This feature makes it dramatically easier to set and change item order when reusing Custom Element or Page Index content.
