AutoSchedule Your Posts

Bulk schedule your Instagram, Facebook and Twitter posts with AutoSchedule! 

AutoSchedule allows you to bulk schedule your posts by just dragging and dropping your media on to the Later content calendar. Yes, that means you can schedule 10, 20 or even 50 posts in only a few seconds!

Important: AutoSchedule does not mean automatically posting to Instagram. AutoSchedule means being able to schedule multiple posts at once by creating a weekly recurring schedule from your content calendar. You are still required to post manually to Instagram, but Facebook & Twitter will auto-post. 

How Does Autoscheduling Work?

  • The assigned timeslots recur weekly
  • AutoScheduling is only available for Instagram, Twitter & Facebook.
  • Only one post can be scheduled in a single timeslot
  • Timeslots can be moved around the calendar, but changes will be reflected in the following weeks
  • You can use your Visual Instagram Planner to AutoSchedule your Instagram posts. Learn more.

Step 1: Create Your Weekly Queue

From Later on the web go to your content calendar.

Double click on the timeslot you’d like to add to your queue as an ideal time to post. Drag the timeslot to adjust the time down to the minute.

Step 2: AutoSchedule Your Posts

Now that you’ve created your ideal queue, begin AutoScheduling your posts for Instagram, Twitter, Facebook.

Tip: Use your Visual Instagram Planner (previously called Grid Preview) to AutoSchedule your Instagram posts. Simply click Preview, select the photos you wish to schedule, rearrange the look of your feed and save the changes to AutoSchedule your posts.

To schedule your posts select the photos in the order you would like to schedule them.

Once you’ve selected all of your photos, click Auto Schedule to automatically queue all of your posts.

Tip: Save time writing out your captions by using Media Notes to draft your messaging. The notes will be automatically copied over to your caption field when the photo is scheduled.  

Finally make sure to go back into each post to add your captions and quickly add your most commonly used Hashtags with  Saved Captions.
