Automatically schedule a post

  

You can keep your social presence always active by automatically scheduling posts to fill the gaps in your scheduled content. AutoSchedule schedules content for you based on the following:

  • Your customized AutoSchedule settings (posts per day, time period, and days applicable)
  • Your already-scheduled content for the selected social network
  • High-engagement time periods for the social network generally (not specific to your own or your audience's habits)

Important: AutoSchedule does not automate duplication of posts. It schedules each post once within the timeframe selected in your AutoSchedule settings.

AutoSchedule settings are applied per social account, so if AutoSchedule is set to schedule up to five posts throughout the week, it will schedule up to five posts on each social account.

Different times may be selected for the same post depending on the network. For example, if AutoSchedule is used for a post for Twitter and Facebook, the Tweet could be scheduled for 11:30 AM and the Facebook post could be scheduled for noon.
