TINT Boards

In this article, we will cover:

How to add a TINT Board

On the TINT Launchpad, which is the first page you will see after logging in, you will see the following if you scroll down:

Click on the  "Create New TINT" button to get started or you can also create a new TINT if you click on the TINT board button and then click on "+ Add a Board"

 

This will bring up a pop-up box where you will see:

TINT NAME: enter a name for the TINT board, ensuring that there are no special characters including spaces in the name 

Publicly Accessible: choose Yes or No to enable public accessibility.   If you selected “No”, this TINT board will not be embeddable and won’t be accessible to the public 

Once you are done, click on Create, your TINT board will be created and the TINT Editor will be launched.

How to get a TINT ID number/slug

TINT boards used to have a slug.  We have phased out the option to assign slug.  This change will not disrupt the functionality of TINT boards already equipped with slugs; their associated URLs and web embeds will remain operational.  Going forward, TINT board will be identified by an numeric ID. 

If you need to get your old TINT board slug or the new TINT ID number, you have the following two ways to get it:

  1. Go to Personalizations
  2. Pick any Personalization if you don’t need the personalization ID. If you do, pick the correct personalization
  3. Click Display
  4. Select the TINT board that you need the ID for
  5. Click Next
  6. Click Embed Code to open the view
  7. The ID you need will be in the quotes of data-id-"". If the TINT board was made before the change, it will have the slug; if it has been made after, it will have the ID number. 

If you are already on the TINT board that you need the ID for:

  1. Click on Display
  2. Pick any Personalization if you don’t need the personalization ID. If you do, pick the correct personalization
  3. Click Next
  4. Click Embed Code to open the view
  5. The ID you need will be in the quotes of data-id-"". If the TINT board was made before the change, it will have the slug; if it has been made after, it will have the ID number.

   

Another way of getting the TINT board ID (not the slug version) is in the address bar when you are in the TINT board: For example, https://www.tintup.com/app/tints/124422125?page=all. TINT board ID will be 124422125

How to add Content and Social Feeds in the TINT Editor

The first step to getting your TINT board up and running is adding a social feed from a network. A social feed can come from a variety of social networks, such as X, Instagram, or Facebook. We also have other integrations such as support for RSS feeds and even instant messenger applications like Slack and Cisco Webex. For a complete list of the connection types, click here.

The CONTENT panel can be found on the left-hand side of the page. The Content panel is where you will add social feeds to your TINT board. Simply click any of the icons to start:

This will open up a popup with a list of the social feeds/options available for the connection you are adding.  

Here's an example of what adding an Instagram feed would look like:

  1. Once you have picked which kind of social feed you want to add, click next. This will take you to add your accounts.
  2. Click on Add account from the drop-down menu.
  3. This will open an authentication page to the social network you are trying to add.  Here, you will need to provide your login credentials for the social network. This is a requirement for most connections; for more information, click here.
  4. Click the "Log In" and/or "Authorize" buttons to continue. 
  5. This should put your name in the account drop-down list. 
  6. On some social feeds, you might need to use the select username option as well but be aware that will not list the username, it will always pull the name listed on the account. 
  7. Once you have done that, click on Add Social Feed.

The social feed has now been created and within a few moments, posts will appear in the main portion of the page:

You can add multiple social feeds to your TINT board by repeating this process. Once you have all of the social feeds in place, you can move on to Personalization, Moderation, and getting your TINT board set up just to your liking.

How to remove, rename, and toggle on/off the moderation on social feeds

If you need to remove, rename, or toggle moderation settings for a social feed, scroll down within the CONTENT panel. The social feed(s) will appear under the FEEDS YOU'VE ADDED section.

Click the cog icon to remove, pause or rename a connection or click the pause or play icon to pause or start your feed again or the lock icon to toggle moderation on or off:
