The Conflux Dashboard#

When you sign in to your conflux account, you will be presented with a dashboard, which gives you a quick view of the connected platforms, number of connections and some other statistics about your account. It gives you quick access to the available platforms on conflux, clicking on which you can easily manage your account of that particular platform.

What is a platfrom?#

Simply put, platform are all the different social sites, services and apps that are available inside conflux. You can connect the account you have with those platforms, inside conflux to read, sync and manage them directly using confluxbot.

What is a connection?#

Now that you know what a platform is, what is a connection? A connection is a set of instructions you create to sync two or more of your platform accounts. You can create any type of connections including but not limited to:

  • two or more accounts of same platform
  • cross platform connections
  • one to many platform/account
  • many to one platform/account
  • many to many platform/account

Every connection must have two important set of instructions, which are sources and destinations.

What is a source?#

A source is where the connection gets all the content from, for processing as per your instructions. Simply put, source are the various different channels, groups, chats from your platform account. Every connection must have at least one source, and you can also set many sources to one single connection. These sources can be from same or different accounts or platforms.

What is a destination?#

As the name suggests, a destination is where the content is finally published after all the processing is complete as per the instructions set inside the connection. Just like source, destination are the various different channels, groups, chats from your platform account. Every connection must have at least one destination, and you can also set many different destinations to one single connection. These destinations can be from same or different accounts or platforms.

While selecting the destination make sure you select only those channels, groups, chats where you have the content posting rights. For source you do not have this limitation as you are just reading the content and not creating new content to source chats, but for a destination you must have the rights to create new content in those particular chats.
