How does it work?
To schedule an automatic post, please follow these steps:
- Click on the 'Publishing' tab within the main menu and select 'Scheduler'.
- Click on 'New post' near the top right of your screen, or click on the space within the calendar where you'd like to post.
- Select the type of post you wish to schedule - you can choose from Status, Images (up to 10 at a time) or Video.
- If scheduling images or a video, upload or select media from your Media Library, and for videos, you can also select a thumbnail. You can then add your caption as normal, and for single-image posts and status posts, you can also add a geolocation!
- You can preview your post prior to scheduling by clicking the 'Preview' button near the bottom of your screen.
- If you have your the post validation security measure switched on, you'll need to validate your automatic post through the app to ensure it posts automatically.
- As long as your media fits all the specs*, your post will then be published automatically to Facebook!
Here's a GIF showing how the process works!

Maximum file size: 15Mb for images or 150Mb for videos

This feature is available on the STARTER, PRO, ADVANCED and AGENCY plans, and you must have a Facebook page in order to have access to it.
Can I schedule a Facebook post through the Android/iOS apps?
Currently, Facebook scheduling is available via the desktop site only.
Can I schedule a non-automatic post for Facebook?
No, all posts will be published to Facebook automatically.
Can I tag another Page (or account) in the caption or on the media itself?
