NOTE: Timeslots are NOT the same as scheduling a post for a future date and time. To schedule a post for the future, just choose "Post on specific date/time".

Creating a Timeslot allows you to set predetermined timeslots for your posts, such as every weekday at 12:30 PM.

When you choose "Add to Timeslot", that post will be added to the next available Timeslot under for that account. This way, you do not need to manually choose a date and time for each scheduled post.

If you created Timeslots prior to May 4, 2021, it will require creating new Timeslots (due to a recent upgrade to the Timeslot logic and user interface). However, you can view your old Timeslots here, to serve as a reference point in creating new Timeslots.


To create a Timeslot, select an account, and then add your Timeslots for that account:

For example, if you want to create a Timeslot at 2PM on Mondays, you would click here:



...And then you will see your Timeslot created.

If you want to create a Timeslot for every day or just weekdays, that can be done as well.


To add a post to your Timeslot, choose "Add to Timeslot" when scheduling a post.



It will then be added to your next available Timeslot for the account(s) selected.


If you choose "Add to Timeslot" and choose an account that does not have a Timeslot created, the post will go to your Drafts folder.


FAQ

If I choose "Add to Timeslot", can I still set that post to repeat?
Yes, you can still choose for posts added to your Timeslot to repeat. The post will repeat at the frequency you set based on the date and time it gets published.

However, the future instances of the repeating post will no longer be associated with the Timeslot, so make sure you aren't double scheduling 🙂
