Once your episode is complete, you can publish the episode directly to your Captivate.fm account. You can decide whether or not you want your episode published as a draft or as a live episode.
Note: You need two things to publish your episode directly to Captivate:
You need to have created your podcast/show in your Captivate dashboard
You need to fill out your episode description inside Alitu
Integrate your Alitu Account with your Captivate.fm Account
On the publish page, click 'Choose hosting provider':
Click 'Link with Captivate':
On the next screen you will need to add your Captivate User ID and your Captivate API Token. You can find both of these keys in your 'My Account' settings in your Captivate account:
Scroll down on your Captivate 'My Account' page until you see the API Key section and click 'Reveal API key':
Once you click 'Reveal API key' you will see both your Captivate User ID and API key which you should then copy and paste into your Alitu settings:
Once you've pasted your Captivate credentials into the Alitu settings, be sure to click 'Link with Captivate' to complete your integration.
Publish your episode directly to Captivate
On your 'Publish Your Episode' screen you can now click 'Send to Captivate':
Select your show on Captivate and decide whether you want to 'Upload to Captivate and Save as Draft' or 'Upload to Captivate and Publish' your episode.
In order to publish your episode immediately versus as a draft, you will need to include an episode description as seen here. You will be unable to publish immediately without having this filled in:
That's it. Your episode will be uploaded directly to your Captivate dashboard.
Please reach out using the chat box at the bottom of this page if you have any questions about using Alitu. We're happy to help!
