Send to Bambu

You can generate content for your advocacy program directly from Sprout Social. The integration feature between Sprout and Bambu is called Send to Bambu.

Send to Bambu provides multiple ways for Sprout users to pass content from Sprout to Bambu seamlessly.

From the Calendar List view inside Sprout Social, users can pass Sent Messages to Bambu’s Sources feed with a single click. To send a message to Bambu click Send_to_Bambu_icon.png. A success message prompt will appear with a link to the Bambu Sources feed.


You can also pass links and articles to Bambu’s Sources feed from the Find Content view in Sprout. To send a message to Bambu click Send to Bambu. A success message prompt will appear with a link to the Bambu Sources feed.


From Bambu Sources, Admins & Curators have two options: curate the social post itself or just the link included within the social post.


Select the article or post from Sources. Next, select Edit to curate.


From the curator modal, you can select between the original article or the social post from the article you are sharing, if both are available.


Once you are done editing, select Add Story to add to Bambu.

Note: You must have access to the Advocacy Report in Sprout in order to access Send to Bambu. If you are a customer who uses both Sprout and Bambu and do not yet have access to the Advocacy Report, reach out to your Bambu Account Manager for access.
