Once you finished customizing your piece of content you might want to schedule it instead of publishing it right away. There are 3 ways how to schedule a post:

  1. Schedule it on a specific day and time;

  2. Add it to queue;

  3. Schedule it to a particular time slot.

Schedule on a certain day and time

There may be a slight difference in the flow depending on where you start. 

1. If you pick a template from Post Ideas or create a post from scratch, then click on the Schedule button. The mini calendar will pop up, where you choose the day and time.

2. If you click on New Post in the Calendar, the post editor page will look slightly different.

The text on top will notify you about the day and time the post is supposed to go live. If you miss it and hit Schedule, a message will pop up not giving you the possibility to choose the right time.

In order to avoid this, click on the suggested date and pick the right time. A mini calendar will pop up in your window, so you can choose the right time.

Add to Queue

Adding a post to queue means adding it to the timetable previously set up either by you or by our proprietary AI tool called Autopilot. 

Clicking the Add To Queue button the post will take the nearest available slot.

Before getting to this option, make sure that your schedule is fine-tuned. Please, read the article that explains what the Time Slots are and how you can tweak the queue settings here.

Add Post to a Time Slot

Scheduling a post to a certain Time Slot means scheduling it on a particular day and time according to the timetable previously set up either by you or our proprietary AI tool called Autopilot.

Hit the blue New Post button, which signifies the best time to post and the most relevant content type to share at the selected time.

Next, you can choose one of the suggested templates, pick a different one or create your own visual.

Depending on your subscription plan and platform version (franchise) the content suggestions may be disabled.

Regardless of the button you click in this modal, the result will be the same - you'll be directed to the post editor form where:

  • The day and time of the post will be highlighted;

  • There'll be only one option - 'Schedule', but not 'Publish Now' and 'Add To Queue', because initially, you started scheduling this post to a certain Time Slot. 

You can utilize the First Comment option for Instagram, too, in the process of posting. It's possible to create, schedule, and automatically post the first comment to your Instagram Business posts, available for all PromoRepublic users.

You can schedule a post for multiple pages by selecting them in the upper part.

Please note that when a post is scheduled (but not yet published) it won't be possible to add another page - there'll be no selection.

Also, note another scenario. If at the stage of scheduling the post, you chose several pages and now you decided to edit the post, the changes will only be applied to one page, but not to all of the selected pages.
