The Destinations page is used to Add, Activate, and Remove Destinations on the system.
A Destination is a social media account which has been linked with CLIP2VU to allow the publishing of clips.

The right hand side of the page displays a table with all the current Destinations on the system.

The Actions column has two buttons. The orange cog is used to activate a Destination (you can also click the icon under the
Active? column), the red
X allows you to remove the Destination.
When a Destination is removed, any Publication made on that Destination will be removed from CLIP2VU. It will not remove the content from the Destination itself however.
Activating a Destination¶

Pressing this will take you to the Activate page for that Destination. The steps will be different depending on the Target type. It will either require you click a link to activate, or go to a specific page on that platform and enter a code.
In CLIP2VU, there is a concept of
Global Destinations. These are identified by the Globe icon displayed next to the
Name under Current Destinations.
Any Destination created within CLIP2VU is only available to the user that created the Destination.
Global Destinations are Destinations which can be accessed by any user in CLIP2VU. They cannot be created, edited, or deleted within CLIP2VU. They are created by adding a new Destination through the VCH Admin site.
You can find out more about Destinations in their section of the VCH docs.
