Upload and schedule multiple social posts

0 Votes

Hello, I have some ideas that I am hoping you can implement in the social media campaigns. 1. After a post is scheduled, have a button to schedule another post. Right now there are only options to still interact with that post and I have to go to a different page to create a new one. 2. If we have a post that is multiple images, could we either have a push notification, or Sked Social has been able to figure out how to automatically post an Instagram carousel so perhaps there is software you could also adapt. I would greatly appreciate any work you can put forth in these aspects. Thank you.

It would be AMAZING if there was a "new" button or a "create" button on the scheduling page so that I don't have to keep going back and back and back to the social tab for every post. Sometimes I have 5 things I've gotten approval to post to our social medias and I have to continuously reload the Social page, slowing down my work. It would be SO helpful to have a "new" or "create" button right at the top next to the "copy" button after you've scheduled something. 

 

Also - default to "schedule for later" instead of "post now" for social posts. I don't know a single marketer who "posts now".

I'd like to schedule my social posts out for more than just one time. Where are the instructions for how schedule them for more than once? Thank you.

Hello @MarshaS9. At this time, posts will need to be scheduled individually. We have a feature request open for the ability to create multiple posts at once so I will merge your post there.

One should not have to scroll down everyday to each one to add additional times a day. or days. One should be able to click on the date on the calendar and up or down the arrow there. Also not have to go all the way to each post, to then have to go back up to see if it worked or not. NOT SMART !

I don't like it because I can only schedule one posting at a time. Before, on one screen I could choose when I want it to repost. This is much worse!

I used to be able to schedule my posts to run all week or month....now I'm limited to one time? So I have to recreate this over and over?

Previously I would share to social media using the calendar to share several days back to back. I don't see how to do that using the new format. Cheers, Ted.

Your social sharing changes have completely messed up the process and does not work consistently. The old way was much simpler to schedule and actually worked!

Hi @TomL170 what about our updated Social Share feature does not fit your needs? What exactly are you experiencing that does not work when creating or scheduling your post?

Before the changes, I could schedule multiple social media destinations for different days and times from one screen.  It was a much simpler process than all of the steps now required to schedule multiple destinations with multiple days and times.  Also when I insert a picture to use with the social media posting, the picture is no longer a link to the post itself but only to the picture.

It is absolutely ridiculous that a company with the (supposed) technological expertise of Constant Contact cannot provide a way to send out a social media post on more than one time/date. I was told by your representative that, if I want to schedule a second post time/date for a Linked-In post on the following date, I have to wait until the first one posts and then go back and copy the link and set it up. I asked her why it couldn't be set up at the same time and she explained that it was because it was not a "live" link until posted. If it is not a "live" link how can it be posted the first time? In the former method, it was possible to enter an initial post and a follow-up at the same time. Now I have to remember what time I posted the first post and be sure to go back and repost it for a second time. In 2021, Constant Contact should be able to allow the scheduling of one post two times!!!

What happened to the page where I can schedule repeated social posts? I was only able to share my email campaign on my social media profiles now, once. I need to be able to schedule multiple re-posts, as I have been doing for the last few years on Constant Contact. Please advise.

I too would like to be able to schedule multiple post for a month out without having to copy  and recreate the ad.  How soon until something like this is available?
