Schedule content

The scheduling feature in NationBuilder allows you to schedule any type of content. You can schedule blog posts, website pages, tweets, Facebook posts, text messages and email blasts.

Please note that the scheduling feature is only available to those on the Organization plan or above. If you would like scheduling activated in your nation, please contact help@nationbuilder.com. 

Scheduling works the same throughout your nation, whether you are scheduling a blog post or a tweet from your broadcaster. Follow these steps any time you wish to schedule content.

1. Create and save your content. An option to schedule or publish will appear. Tweets and Facebook posts do not require you to save your content.

Choose a time and day to publish the post. When you click on the date, a calendar will appear allowing you to set the day of publication on a future day.

3. Enter the time for the post to be published or the broadcast sent out. You can enter time in twelve hour or twenty-four hour standard, e.g. 3pm, 3:15pm, or 15:00, 15:15. You must choose a time that is at least an hour in the future.

You can review any scheduled communications by going to [broadcaster] > [communication type] > Scheduled.

For example, I can find my scheduled Facebook posts under [my broadcaster] > Facebook > Scheduled.

If you click on the hyperlinked day/time, you can change the scheduled time.

Cancel the scheduled content by clicking the “Cancel” button on the far right. And you can edit the content of the post from the edit button on the far left.
