The process of writing blogposts is often collaborative. That's why Scoop.it lets different users work on the same articles, by creating Drafts, directly in the Smart Calendar. Everyone with a Scoop.it account (except for Curators) will be able to contribute, but only Administrators will be allowed to publish. To learn more about different types of users, you can read our article on how to manage users and teams.
However, if you want people outside Scoop.it to collaborate on a blogpost, you can use our Google Doc integration by clicking "Attach Google Doc" in your Smart Calendar.
You can then choose to create a new document or to upload an existing one.
In both cases, you will have to log in to your Google account and allow Scoop.it to connect to your Google Drive.
Once it's done, you should be able to see the Google doc in your Smart Calendar. If you click on Edit, you can see the following pop-up:
If you want to edit the article, you can either do it in Google docs or in WordPress. Note that any change in your Google Doc will be reflected in WordPress, but if you decide to edit your article directly in WordPress, the changes won't appear in your Google Doc.
When you're done editing, you simply have to click on Validate from your Smart Calendar. Click then on Next and Validate again to schedule the post.
Last but not least, Scoop.it recognizes the formatting of your Google Doc and applies your WordPress template, so your articles should appear exactly the same as usual!
