How do I create and share/schedule posts from my calendar?

SocialPilot's calendar allows you to have an overview of your content schedule. 

How do I create posts from my calendar?

  1. Log in to your SocialPilot account.
  2. Go to 'Posts' > Calendar.
  3. Now, select a date and click on that particular cell.

It'll open up the 'Create Post' pop-up.

  1. Type your post in the text box, add a link and image (if you want) and select the account(s) you want to schedule the post for.
  2. When you click on 'Schedule Post,' it asks you to select a time. The 'Add Schedule' button allows you to add multiple time slots - in case you wish to publish the post multiple times on the selected day.

And that's how you create posts - right from your calendar!

If you are scheduling the same post for multiple social accounts at a time, they are going to be published at the same time on all those accounts, which might look repetitive.

One way of preventing this from happening is by publishing all these posts at a slightly different time on all the accounts. You can do that by activating the Stagger Post feature in the Schedule Post pop-up.

When you activate the toggle from its default OFF position to ON, a dropdown list will appear, offering various Stagger Intervals. You can choose a specific time duration ranging from 15 minutes to 24 hours.

Once selected, the tool will automatically share the post across all the designated social accounts at regular time intervals. The post will be published on all the accounts starting from the date and time you had originally added to the schedule.

For instance, if you're scheduling a post for 10 different accounts and opt for a 3-hour stagger interval, the tool will publish your post on each account with an 18-minute time difference between them. The order in which the accounts receive the staggered posts will be determined alphabetically.

How do I reschedule posts from my calendar?

Instead of going into each post and editing the details, SocialPilot lets you re-order with just a drag and drop.

Using SocialPilot's Calendar view, you can easily shuffle your posts by dragging and dropping a post to any date you want to schedule it for. 

The calendar also provides you with 4 pre-programmed time slots every hour of the day for easy rescheduling. You can simply drag the post and drop it at the desired time, and that post will be rescheduled and ready to go. 

SocialPilot's calendar lets you add filters to view posts for an account or group. You can also view posts for the week or the month or as a list.

How To Create Posts From Socialpilot Calendar View Directly?

You can also plan and create thoughtful posts for special days and holidays ahead of time to avoid last-minute work and ensure high-quality posts directly from the Calendar.

Here is how you can do it.

On the Calendar view, you can find all the holidays for each day at the top.

Click on the holiday name, and you will find a small pop-up with the picture, holiday name, and a concise description.

Now, click on the 'Create Post' button. The description and image of the holidays will be added automatically in the Create Post section. From there, you can schedule your content.

Note: If you choose a date from the past, the post gets scheduled for the same day.

In the filter area at the top of the calendar, you can select the country(s) for which you want to see the calendar view and create posts accordingly.

Post ideas should be available for the following countries. The list will be made for an initial period of 2 years.

  • United States
  • United Kingdom
  • Germany
  • Canada
  • Netherlands
  • Australia
  • India
  • Others
