Beginning in late 2019, Facebook took away the ability to schedule posts directly from the page publisher.
So, instead of scheduling directly from the publisher, Facebook directs you to Publishing Tools. And once you get to Publishing Tools, Facebook directs you to Creator Studio.
This… is annoying.
So, let’s walk through how to schedule these posts with Creator Studio then, I guess…
Use Creator Studio
Facebook really wants us to use Creator Studio. It’s now the only way to schedule posts. Access it from your Publishing Tools under “Tools.”
Click “Create Post” at the top left.
A publisher will now slide out from the right side.
The Publish button is at the very bottom, and if you click the arrow next to it, you’ll see the option to schedule.
It will now appear under “All Posts” or “Scheduled” within your Creator Studio.
This is far from ideal, but it is our new normal. Hopefully, Facebook will make Creator Studio ultra-important in the future. Otherwise, this feels like a bunch of unnecessary clicks and steps.
