Why we created Web Clipper

We’re always looking for ways to make content creation easier and faster. We started working on Web Clipper because many of you were finding it tough to keep tabs on interesting articles you could use for social. Web Clipper automates the process of discovering great content, and then adding it to ContentCal. It also allows your team to get more collaborative, allowing anyone to add content to the Pinboard or Library without even needing to go into ContentCal directly.

“Web Clipper had been one of our most highly requested features so it quickly became a priority of ours. It was really important for us to give our customers what they need to make ContentCal the perfect tool for them. It took us a few months of hard work to get here, but we’re so pleased to see that already so many people are using Web Clipper on a daily basis to populate their content plans.” - Becca Croly, Product Designer
