The Calendar tab gives you a visual overview of your posts. This includes posts that have already been posted on your desired social media accounts, as well as queued posts. And you can easily switch from a Weekly Calendar format to a Daily Calendar format. You can also create new posts directly from this tab. Plus, you can use filters to quickly visualize your posts based on category or selected accounts.
You can click on the green button Add post from the Week view mode. If you are in Day view mode, then you have to hover your mouse cursor over the hour you want your post to go out. This will make the green button appear.
Inside the History tab, you can see the posts which have successfully been published. You can use filters and pick a specific date range to quickly surface information about the posts you’re interested in. On the left side of the tab, you have all your social media profiles and you can see how many posts have been published with Squirrly Social across your profiles. Clicking on any of them will reveal the full post.
Post Planner tab allows you to see the posts that are draft, scheduled or published.
You can also see your categories, timings and the social media profiles your posts go to.
In the left side of the interface, you have the categories.
You can add a new one by clicking the button Add Category. You will have to choose a name, to select on what platforms you want your posts to go, if you want the posts to repeat or not and if the posts are Draft or Approved.
To change the name of a category, you will have to click the gear icon from the right side, which will take you to the settings panel.
If you don’t have any post in Drafts or Scheduled Tab, you will be able to see the Create a new post button.
If you already have posts there, then you will have to click the Create a new post button from the top banner.
For every new post that you create, you have the option to Add to Queue or Save to Post Planner. The Add to Queue option lets you schedule a time and date for your post to go out. Or you can use the Send Now option which will post it right away. If you pick the Save to Post Planner option, you will then have to use the button that says Timings. Once you click on it, you’ll be able to pick the days of the week in which you want your post to go out – as well as the exact hours.
On the right side, you will have a text Add a social profile. If you click it, it will take you to the settings of the category, where you have the option to choose where to Post to.
You can also click on the gear icon from the right, that will take you to the same panel.
If you decide that you want some posts to go out multiple times, they will be posted on your selected social media accounts taking into account your current scheduling timeline – meaning they will NOT over overlap with your posts that are scheduled. Instead, they will take the unallocated time slots. So, if you have nothing scheduled for Thursday, for example, your repeat posts will go out then. You can always check when these posts will go out inside the Calendar Tab.
Start by creating a new category. Name it Inspiration. Then, using the timings setting, only choose Friday as the day you want your posts to go out. This way, all posts you save to the Inspiration category, will be posted on Fridays.
You can create new folders for your images. Just click on the Add fo Add folder lder button, give an appropriate name to your folder, and then start uploading your files there.
