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" (which is available on all plans).

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 that category and account. This way, you do not need to manually choose a date and time for each scheduled post.

The Timeslot feature is not available on the Starter plan. If you are on the Starter plan, you can upgrade plans by going to Settings => Upgrade Plan.


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



Next, you will be able to select the Category, the exact posting time (if you prefer 2:03 to 2:00, for example), and which accounts you want this Timeslot for:



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




When you are done, click the Save button, and you will see the Timeslot in the weekly overview.






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 category and account(s) selected.

In this example, the post would get scheduled for this Monday at 2:03 PM for the 2 accounts selected.
If another post were to be added to the Timeslot for these accounts, it would get scheduled for the following Monday at 2:03 PM.


When adding a post to your Timeslot, remember to choose the right category and account that the Timeslot was created under.

If you choose "Add to Timeslot" and choose a category+account combination 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 🙂
