Then all you need to do is open the workspace settings for the workspace that you want to add Pocket to, which you can find in the left menu, then scroll down to see the ‘Connect a integration’ section, simply click on “Connect Pocket”;

Once Pocket loads its permission widow follow the steps and authorise Publicate’s access, then sit back and watch the content start arriving in Publicate.

And that’s it. Now everything you have or will add to Pocket will always be in Publicate.
