How to use the Content Planner (Editorial Calendar)

Content Planner helps you organize your editorial calendar by adding content placeholders to your Calendar alongside all your scheduled posts and social media shares. You can use them for saving blog post topics, draft links, or to assign it to someone and add any notes that you like.
