What’s better than scheduling your posts manually? Having a detailed posting schedule!

Everyone who manages multiple social accounts is aware of the benefits of having a strict posting schedule, which will definitely save a lot of time. It is all about deciding which types of posts will be shared on any days of the week.

Remember:

You can use time-slots for AutoScheduling and also Recycling posts.
You can create multiple timeslots and add different types of posts on each of them.
You will be notified if you are scheduling a post over another one, because posts of the same social accounts should have a difference of at least 1 minute.
You can create different timeslots for each social account you have on Publer.
If you get "No time-slots found" message, it could be because you have specified post types for you timeslots that do not match to the current post.

To set up a posting schedule:

Go to Accounts on top of the dashboard.
Select the social account for which you want to create a new timeslot.



Select the second option named Posting Schedule.



You can select between the Create timeslot or Autofill options.

A timeslot is a detailed plan for your posts. You can fill all the information i.e on Mondays-Link posts; on Tuesdays-Photo posts; etc.
Autofill requires only the times and days. Publer will automatically schedule posts according to the times and days you just chose.

If you choose Create timeslot:

Add a time.
Select the days.
Decide what type of Post will go out on those days and time.
Name a label.
Click Create.

For example:

If you want Link posts to be shared only on Tuesdays and Fridays at 10 AM, here’s the schedule:



You can add as many timeslots as you need and those will all be per each respective social account!

Alternatively, if you choose Autofill:

Decide a time-range (which might be the working time of everyone, say 9 AM - 5 PM).
Choose the days when you want to post on the time-range above.
Select the number of posts you want to be shared on the days and time range selected.
Finally, click on Generate.



Remember: Your posts of the existing timeslot on the selected days will be deleted if you apply the Autofill.


Autofill is an amazing tool for people who want to share their products/sales/services many times a day at the same time.

After curating a timeslot (by creating a new one or Autofilling), you can create/recycle a new post easily:

Go to Create on top of the dashboard.
Select the social account’s icon you just created a timeslot for.



Design your post and click Schedule.
Click Change Mode and select AutoSchedule.
Choose the label of the timeslot you created for your posts (in this example, LinkTF).



Select Recycle, if you want the post to go out more than 1 time.
