Before scheduling a party, make sure you have installed the PostMyParty Chrome extension.

This article covers how to schedule posts to an event, specifically. If you are wanting to schedule posts to a group or a page instead:

How to schedule a party to an event

From the PostMyParty menu, click Parties, then click the New Party button.

Step 1) Get Started

From the menu given, select Event.

Step 2) Where to Post Party

From here you'll be entering where you want to schedule your posts.

Click Add New Event +

Note: After adding an event here, that event will be available in the dropdown box moving forward. You won't have to type the name and paste the link each time.

  • Click Next Step.

Step 3) Start Date

  • Select the Start Date
    This would be the Date you want your Day 1 template posts to begin posting on.

  • Select the Timezone you want your posts to follow.

    For example: Let's say my template begins with a Day 1, 8am post. But my party guests are in a timezone 3 hours behind me. If I select their timezone here, it will post at 8am for them, but 11am my time. This will save you from having to manually update each post for each individual time zone.

  • Click Next Step

Step 4) Template

  • Choose the template you want to schedule from the dropdown box provided. This will schedule all posts from that template to this party.

  • If you do not want any template posts scheduled to this party, un-check the Copy Posts option

  • Click Next Step.

Possible next step) Replacement Tokens

If the template you had selected in Step 4 contained tokens, you will be required to fill in their replacements here.

Note: If you do not receive this Replacement Token step, you can continue along to the final step further down this tutorial.

This step would look similar to the image below:

What you enter in these fields will be used in place of the corresponding tokens in your posts. If you're not sure of how tokens were used to know what to enter here, I would recommend taking a moment to look over your template to give you more context in which they were used.

If you're very unfamiliar with how tokens work, learn more here.

  • Once you're finished filling this page in, click Next Step.

Final Step) Confirm

  • The details you had selected will be listed here. Take a look over them to be certain they are correct.

  • Click Preview Posts to see all posts that will be scheduled to this party.

  • Scroll to the bottom and click Confirm & Schedule

Your party is now scheduled!

Before you step away 👇

To ensure your posts are ready to publish, be sure of the following before leaving your computer:

When the time for your scheduled posts arrive, the extension will open a new tab, publish to the page scheduled for, then close the tab.
