Plan in collaboration

Combine internal events and activities with data from the external Onclusive database to create a “single source of truth”. This data can then be used to build a variety of reports aimed at supporting strategic communications planning, which can be restricted to control viewing and editing rights.

To aid filtering and add a visual guide to these reports, custom filters can be applied to the data to group specific types of content, for example by marketing priority or team.

Interrelated Grid Reports link comms plans across teams and products, encouraging cross-team collaboration, while Diary Reports are used to inform stakeholders of top-level outlines. Elsewhere, Campaign Reports can be used to display all events related to a specific campaign; Horizon Planners offer a simple long-term overview of comms plans; and Channel Reports show activities from different areas of the business around a key priority.
