What is Agency Posting Templates
An Agency Posting Template is a pre-made template that can be used to quickly and easily create relevant content for your neighborhood or jurisdiction. The templates include pre-made graphics from our graphics library here and drafted content that can be easily edited to be specific to your location, and applied to an agency posting category(Safety, Crime, Community Environmental, Animals).
Post Templates make scheduling posts even easier to plan relevant content for your neighborhood in advance. Local agencies can use the templates to schedule an unlimited amount of posts up to 30 days in advance.
