How to Create a Template of Posts

This is usually the beginning step to getting your posts scheduled to your group, so let's get started by creating your first script of posts in a template.

You can watch the full video tutorial or continue reading for written instructions.

Create a Template

From the left hand menu, click Templates, then Create New Template.
Give your template a name. Your group members will not see this title. Click Create Template.

A new window will pop up, click Create Post.

Adding Posts to your Template:

Click the Add New Post button

There are 3 different post type options given here: Add Media, Product, and Live Video

Add Media (This is the default option)
Select this option if you want to create a post that includes any type of media such as:

Use the Upload Media section to upload your video, picture, or GIF files to the post. You can add multiple to a single post.

You can add any text, website links and/or video links directly in the Message box. The system will generate a preview of a link once posted.

Product Post
Select this option if you want this post to be in a sales-type format.

This type of post gives more variety for any items you are selling, such as:
Product Title
Product Price

Live Video
Select this option if you are scheduling a post notifying your group members when you are streaming live.

For the Live Video Link section, you would enter the link of the location you'll be streaming at (such as a YouTube live event link, or Zoom meeting link).

After your post information has been filled out:
Designate each post with the Day and Time you want that post to be published.
Select your preferred Comment settings.
Click Create Post.

The Day is not the date of the month, but rather notes the order of your posts. For example, if you have a 3 days of scheduled posts , Day 1 would post the first day of posts, Day 2 would post the second day, and Day 3 the final day. Later, when you schedule this template to post to a group, you will choose the actual date you want your posts to begin posting on![]

That post will now be listed in that template, labeled with the Day and Time you had selected.
