How do I approve or edit a customer-submitted directory listing?

Some websites are set up so that customers can submit directory listings. Most ePublishing clients do not allow those listings to go live without first reviewing them. This article will show you how to access pending listings, and approve or edit those listings.

Note: On some websites, directories are referred to as buyer's guides. In the ePublishing Admin Tool, you may access these under Directory Listing.

1. Here's an example of a self-service form for directory listings.

2. Access user-submitted listings (free or paid) by clicking on User under Marketing in your dashboard.

3. Click on the Name to view the details submitted by the user.

NOTE: If a new directory listing requires payment, before publishing the new listing verify that there is a matching order in the Order Manager. It is possible that a customer began the process of submitting a new directory listing but did not complete the payment step. In that situation, the directory listing is saved so that the editor can follow up with the customer to complete the order without requiring the customer to resubmit the new listing.

  1. Approve (Publish) the listing within the Listing Manager.
  2. Cancel (Delete) the listing within the Listing Manager.
  3. View the status of the listing.

4. After clicking on the user's name, click on Directory Listings.

5. To approve (publish) the listing, click on the name of the directory listing. This will take you to the directory listing located in the Directory Manager.

6. Click the Publish check box.

7. Click Save Changes

8. If you'd like to modify the listing, click on Directory under Revenue to access the full directory listing.

8. Edit the listing, and click Save Changes.
