We’re dedicated to building the world’s best Instagram scheduling tool. And part of that includes making key features accessible to you, no matter where you are. Here’s a step by step walkthrough of how to plan, schedule and publish social media posts straight from your mobile device.
How to Schedule Posts with the Sked Social iOS App
Once you’ve downloaded the Sked Social App, enter your regular login details from the home screen.
You’ll notice a layout similar to your login box from the desktop version of Sked Social.
1. Choose Your Account/s
Once you’ve logged in, select the account (or accounts) you’d like to upload to.
Small tags in the top right corner of each account’s profile picture identify account types.
- Facebook: An ‘FB’ tag identifies Facebook accounts
- Instagram: An ‘IG’ tag identifies Instagram accounts
Just like the desktop version of Sked Social, you’re able to upload to multiple platforms within the Sked Social App.
2. Select The Type of Post You’re Creating
Flexibility is one of the most exciting elements of our new release App.
Choose the type of content you would like to upload.
The supported content types are:
- Single Image Posts
- Multiple Image Carousel Posts
- Instagram Stories
- Video Posts
Once you’ve selected your posting type, click ‘Select Media’ from the bottom of your screen.
3. Upload Media File/s
Next, upload your media file (or files).
Your selected image, images or video can be:
- Selected from your Library
- Taken directly from your mobile device, in real time
Multiple upload choices mean you have a wider range of options when creating new social media posts with the app.
4. Add Captions and Hashtags
Once you’ve selected your imagery, type your caption straight into the app’s caption field.
For Instagram posts, you can add hashtags directly into your first comment, too.
5. Select a Scheduling Date and Time
If you’re choosing to schedule your social media content, simply click ‘Schedule’ from the bottom of the screen.
From here you’re presented with a date and time selection wheel.
Scroll to your chosen publishing day and time. Then click ‘Confirm.’
6. You’ll Receive a Success Message
Once you’ve confirmed the publishing details for your post, you’ll receive a ‘Post scheduled!’ message at the bottom of your screen.
This means your post is now in scheduled for your selected publishing time and date.
Besides scheduling posts on the go, the Sked Social App offers a few more handy features. We’ve designed these for ease of use and accessibility.
Let’s take a look at other features you’ll have access to within the Sked Social App.
1. View Upcoming Posts
To see your upcoming posts, simply toggle to ‘UPCOMING’ at the top of your screen.
Here you’re met with the scheduled content for all the accounts you manage through Sked Social.
This gives you easy viewing of future posts in chronological order.
You’ll notice blue ‘FB’ tags assigned to Facebook content. And pink ‘IG’ tags for Instagram accounts.
2. View Drafts
Drafting posts in Sked Social have been a favourite feature for many of our users. That’s why we’ve introduced this to the Sked Social App, too.
Simply toggle to ‘DRAFTS’ at the top of your screen. You’re then presented with a list of posts which aren’t in your publishing schedule.
Drafted posts come in handy when you don’t have the time to source imagery right at that moment. Maybe there’s a special holiday which slipped your mind. News dropped in your industry and you need a post to go up quickly. Simply choose a drafted post image, create a caption, add hashtags and publish on the spot.
3. Edit Scheduled Posts
You’ve had a burst of creative energy on your morning commute (it always happens that way). Don’t let the moment pass by waiting until you’re at your computer. Instead, open scheduled posts on the Sked Social App and edit them in real time.
