RecurPost allows you to add your newly added posts from your RSS Feed directly to your library. It is a great way to schedule content using RSS feed on your social accounts.
Let’s see how this feature works and why it’s helpful to you as a RecurPost user.
First, you’ll need to add a new feed if you don’t already have one. You can do so by simply heading on to ‘Feed Manager’ from the main menu and clicking on the ‘+ Add New Feed’ button.
Then, you’ll need to add 3 things at large:
1. The RSS URL of the feed you want
2. The library in which you want your feed posts to appear
3. Select Approval preferences
Once you’re done with that, click on the ‘Move new posts to top of the Queue’ button. Through this button, you’ll be able to move your feed posts to the top of your library when it moves from Feed Manager to Library. Usually, any new post you add to the library goes at the bottom (below the existing posts) of the library.
Next, click on “Add Feed” and you should see your feed appearing like shown in the image below:
You’re almost done. Go inside the feed you just added and select which posts you want to accept (✓) or reject (╳).
The posts that you accept will appear in your library which you can later schedule and post on your social accounts like a regular post.
If I want the first post to appear in my library, I can simply click on the ‘✓’ sign beside the post. This approved post will then appear in my library.
If I want to approve or reject multiple posts at the same time, I can do so by selecting them like so:
Your approved posts will go to your library. Head over to your library from the Recurring Posts page and all your approved posts will appear:
From here on, you can edit these posts and add in your own message/caption by clicking on the pencil icon or selecting the edit option by clicking on the “ ⋮ ” icon beside the post.
What If I Want To Schedule A New Feed Post on RecurPost?
It’s pretty simple.
First, you’ll need to connect your social accounts to RecurPost. You can do so directly from the Dashboard.
For instance, if you want to connect your Facebook Page, go to Dashboard > click on Add button > select the social account you want to add.
After connecting your social account(s), you’ll need to schedule your library (which you’ve selected for your feeds) like you normally do for other libraries.
To do so first, go to Recurring Posts page and then go to the ‘Recurring Time Slots’ tab as shown below.
Then, click on the ‘+ Add Recurring Time Slots’ button.
On the following pop-up, you’ll be selecting 3 things:
1. Social Account – which social accounts you want to post on
2. Frequency – how often you want to post i.e. every Saturday, 5th of every month or you can create a custom schedule.
3. Time – at what time do you want your feed posts to be posted on your social accounts
Bonus: If you’re not sure at what time you should post, RecurPost gives you the option to select the best time to post your posts.
Our advanced AI-based scheduler figures out the time at which you are most likely to receive the highest engagement.
In this case, I have selected my Facebook Page as the social account that I want to post on. You can connect multiple social accounts to RecurPost according to your RecurPost plan.
Let’s say I want to post every Monday at the best times. I can do so by clicking on the “Daily/Weekly” button and then clicking “Monday”. You can do the same for monthly-basis by clicking on “Monthly” option and then select the dates.
After selecting all of the above, go ahead and click on ‘Add Time Slot’. Once you do, your new schedule is created and it will look a little something like this:
This means that your feed posts are scheduled to go out to your social account one after the other in a recurring manner (unless it is a one-time use library).
However, if you want a different post to go live on your account first, simply click on the 3 vertical dots ” ⋮ ” icon beside that post, and select “Schedule Next”.
After that, select your social accounts and click “Save” like so:
