How to Navigate the Social Inbox

The social inbox can be opened by pressing the Inbox button located on the right hand side of your calendar.

You'll then be presented by your social inbox!

The social inbox currently supports comments and mentions for Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn accounts.

Hovering over the one of the social icons will open up the social inbox drawer.

To expand your social inbox drawer and view your comments and mentions, use the arrow to open up the drop down menu.

If you have multiple accounts for the same social platform connected on your calendar, a down menu will allow you to expand and close the comments and mentions for each account.

The total number of comments and mentions and DMs on your Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn account will be indicated by the notification bubble beside the social account name.

Like, Reply, and Hide Comments

The social inbox will display comments that users have made on your Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn accounts. For Facebook, the social inbox will display comments made on both organic and promoted posts.

To engage with your audience directly from HeyOrca, you have the ability to like comments as well as reply to them!

Note: At the moment, you can only like Facebook and LinkedIn comments, liking Instagram comments is not yet available.

To reply to a comment, press reply to open up the text box in which you can type out your response.

You can also add emojis and GIFs directly to your responses using the GIF and emoji picked on the right hand side of the text box!

You can also easily reply using our AI Reply Generator!

The AI powered generator will analyze the content in the comment or mention, and work to generate a smart response based that information! Once the generator has analyzed the content and generated the responses, it will display three tailored sample responses that you can choose from!

Click on any of the responses to add them to the reply field and press send to reply!
