The Destination Manager page is a hub for all your saved social channels on your Switchboard account. It is similar to a bird's eye view that gives you an overview of all the authorized destinations that you've added to your Switchboard account. Whenever you add a new destination to your Switchboard account, it will automatically appear on the Destination Manager page.
How to access the Destination Manager Page
- Open the main menu on the top left.
- Select Destinations from the flyout menu.
- The Destination Manager Page will open.
Navigating the Destination Manager page
On the left of the destination manager page, you'll see a list of workflows saved to your Switchboard account.
- You'll see a number next to the workflow's name; this is the number of saved destinations in the workflow.
Want to see which destinations are on a particular workflow quickly? Click the check box next to the workflow; only the destinations on the workflow will display.
Add Destination Button
You can quickly add destinations to your Switchboard account by clicking the yellow "Add Destination" button at the top right. You'll go through the authorization process of connecting destinations to your Switchboard account.

Click the check authorization button, and the application will verify that the social channels are connected to the Switchboard account.
