You can schedule content in several ways including single posts, recurring posts, and using a scheduler. You can view and manage your schedule on the dashboard or on the schedule page. Filter your schedule by network to get a view for a single company or client.
Schedules are periodically emailed to all organization members so everyone knows what's getting posted.
To schedule a single post one time open the composer and select the Schedule option. Choose the date and time for the post and click Schedule.
To create a post that repeats on a fixed schedule open the composer and select the Repeat option. There are several fields that allow you to control the scheduling, see Composer docs for more details.
Schedulers are powerful tools which allow you to automatically post content. Cross post all the content from one network to any number of your networks. Link a scheduler to one of your folders to automatically post from a custom collection.
You have lots of controls over when the scheduler posts content from frequency, time, weekdays, months, age, and even the duration before the scheduler expires.
Using schedulers require a plan that includes the Scheduler feature.
The following fields can be managed when editing a scheduler:
Name: Give it a name so you can differentiate schedulers.
Folders: Choose any number of your folders to pull content from. At lease one folder or source is required.
Sources: Choose any number of your folders to pull content from. At lease one source or folder is required.
Networks: Choose the networks to post content to.
Quantity: The number of posts to schedule in advance.
Interval: The minimum number of minutes between posts.
Window: Number of minutes after the first available time to randomize post times.
Approval: The default approval status to schedule content with.
Minutes: The minutes in which content can be posted. None selected means all are.
Hours: The hours in which content can be posted. None selected means all are.
Days: The days in which content can be posted. None selected means all are.

If you make changes to the scheduler that would impact existing schedules click the check box Delete existing schedules and re-run the scheduler to force a refresh.
You can automatically cross post content from networks or sources to any of your networks. This makes it simple to focus on keeping one page updated and ensuring it syncs to all other networks.
1. To create a cross posting scheduler first ensure all sources and networks you want to use are connected.
2. Go to your dashboard and click the clock icon to manage your schedulers then click Create.
3. Select the Networks to post to and the Sources to post from.
Saving the default options will result in content posted up to once every hour. See Auto Schedulers for additional options such as setting the Start Time to now so only new stuff is cross posted.
