How To Schedule Your Recurring Posts

Being the social media scheduling tool of choice for thousands of businesses, RecurPost has made it seamless and user-friendly to schedule your updates. Our recurring schedules are a unique offering that is yet to be added by the incumbent social media management tools in the market.

We have made scheduling easier to understand and visualize so you can carry out your social media operations smoothly and more quickly. In order to share posts from a Library in a recurring manner, you need to add recurring schedules.

Schedules can be viewed and modified for libraries. One-off updates can be found in the ‘Queue’ section of the dashboard.

To begin creating a new schedule, select the library for which you wish to set the schedule and click on the ‘Your Schedule’ tab. Then click on ‘Add recurring schedule’ button.

Here you can set new schedules on a Daily/Weekly basis, or Monthly basis. Let’s see how that works.

For example, let’s say that you have a library named “[Your name] Collection” and you want one post from this library to go out to your multiple social accounts every Tuesday at 10 am.

To do that, as shown in the following pop-up screen, you will need to select three things:

1. The Social Accounts that you wish to post on

2. The Frequency at which you want to post (Weekly/Daily or Monthy)

3. The Time at which you want your updates to go live

If you can’t seem to figure out at which time you want to post, RecurPost also gives you an additional feature Auto-schedule for best time’.

Through this feature, we help you find out the time when your updates are most likely to get the highest amount of traffic and engagement from your audience on social media.

The best part is, the more you use this feature, the better it gets!

Once you have selected those three things, go ahead and click on ‘Add Schedule’ on the pop-up. Your new schedule is now created and ready to send updates to your social accounts as per your settings.

Your new schedule will look a little something like this once it is set:

You can edit or delete these schedules later on if you wish anytime.

After adding a couple of schedules, your schedule page should look a little something like this:

To make things easier for you to manage, RecurPost also lets you copy and delete schedules in bulk. Let’s see how that works.

Let’s assume you want to copy all of your Tuesday schedules. Simply click on the copy icon below ‘Tuesday’ and you will see the following pop-up:

Click on your social account and then click ‘Next‘.

On the following pop-up, click on the account that you want to copy your schedule to. Then, click ‘Copy Schedule‘.

Keep in mind that you need at least 2 social accounts connected to RecurPost to be able to copy your schedules.

Your copied schedules will appear like this:

There you go! You have copied your schedules successfully. Go ahead and try this feature out yourself!

Points to note:

Each schedule means one post will go out as per that schedule.

You can create two schedules at the same time (or different for that matter) to send two posts from that library.

If you have two schedules and both of them set for the best time then we will send the first post at the best time and the second one at the second best time.

We rank the hours of the day based on the likelihood of your audience being active during that hour. No two posts will go out in the same hour (unless you create 25 schedules and then the pigeonhole principle applies)

Now let’s see how to delete schedules in bulk. Let’s assume that you want to delete all of your Tuesday schedules. Simply click on the trash icon below ‘Tuesday’ and you will see the following pop-up:

how to add schedules-recurpost-social media scheduling tool

Click ‘Yes, Delete‘ to delete all of your Tuesday schedules. Keep in mind that deleting schedules is an irreversible action. You will not be able to undo this action.

You can also choose to delete your entire schedule if you want to make a fresh new start by clicking on the trash icon below the ‘Time’ column.

However, we recommend you to do it after giving it a second thought. Like we said, deleting schedules is an irreversible action. Please do so carefully.
