We at RecurPost are always looking forward to bringing you the best scheduling services possible that lets you manage all social media accounts from one place. One of the ways we do so is by innovating our interface design and making it more easily operable and seamless, and our social ‘Queue’ is a part of it.
RecurPost’s social Queue is a whole new way to easily browse through, edit, and organize your social media updates in our new design for a fresh start!
Let’s take a look at some of the changes we’ve made in the social queue and how it will help you accelerate your workflow.
For starters, the ‘Editorial Calendar’ and the ‘Future Post Preview’ from the previous design are now combined under one head called the social ‘Queue’ menu so as to make it simpler to understand and more intuitive.
Under the ‘Queue’ menu, you’ll find three tabs:
3. Future Post Preview
The social Queue tab contains a list of all the social updates scheduled for you. You will be able to see which updates are about to go live on which social accounts and in what order. You can choose to view your updates either as a List or as a Monthly Schedule.
In the List section of social queue, you will be able to see all of your One-off updates (regardless of their scheduled time and date) and the Recurring Scheduled posts that are soon to be posted.
In the Month section of social queue, you will be able to see the same, but in a much wider and “zoomed-out” view. Your social updates will all be mapped out and organized according to the dates and days of the month.
We queue social media posts as this helps you plan things out quickly since you’ll have all your updates in your field-of-view, making it seamless and easy to interact with each update.
In the social Queue tab, you can interact with an update in four ways:
- Post Preview
You can view how your update will look like on a particular social platform using the Post Preview button, denoted by an ‘eye’ icon.
Need to make any edits or last-minute changes in your update? You can do so using the Edit button, denoted by a ‘pencil’ icon.
If you wish that your changes apply to all social accounts, simply click on the pencil icon beside the update like so:
If you wish to customize your update for a single social account without affecting the other accounts, click on that social account bubble to make exclusive changes for it, like so:
If you no longer want to post an update, simply click on the Delete button denoted by a ‘trash’ icon.
If you wish to delete the entire update, click on the trash icon beside the update. This means that your update will not be posted on any social account.
In case you don’t want to post your update on a particular social account but on all others, you can remove it exclusively by clicking on that social account bubble and then clicking ‘Delete’ on the pop-up.
- Post Now
Similarly, if you wish to not wait till the scheduled time and need an update to go live instantly, you can post it right away using the Post Now button, denoted by a ‘paper plane’ icon.
To do so, simply click on the social account bubble that you wish to post on and click on the Post Now button on the pop-up. This means that we will post that update only on that particular social account and not the other accounts.
The History tab does exactly what it suggests. It shows you all your social updates that have been successfully posted on your social accounts.
It allows you to visualize and keep account of what you have shared with your users/customers so far so you can optimize and plan your marketing strategy accordingly.
Simply set the range of dates and RecurPost will show you all the updates that went live between those dates.
In the History tab, you can interact with an update in two ways:
- Copy Content
If a post of yours did really well, you might want to re-use it. To do so, simply click on the Reschedule button beside your update, denoted by a ‘spinning arrow’ icon.
You can then make changes or little tweaks in your update in the next pop-up window. Reusing and rescheduling an update is just like creating a new update.
You can rewrite your message, set up a new scheduling date and time, and preview your update so as to see how it will look like on different social platforms. You can also auto-schedule for the best time to post.
- Copy Content
Simply copy the content in your update with the Copy button.
3. FUTURE POST PREVIEW
This section of social queue is essentially the hub of your schedules. Here, you can see all your scheduled updates that are scheduled for any time within the remainder of the current month and the end of the next month.
You can view your social updates either in a List view or Month view form just like in the Queue tab. You can also view which updates are currently in Queue and about to go live.
We denote them using the ‘ticked schedule’ icon.
Under the Month view, your schedules will appear like so:
