That’s exactly what we’re going to discuss in this post! Today, I’ll show you how to set up your Predefined Publishing Times step by step, so you can start scheduling your content to be published during these times, with just the push of a button. Here we go!


Why should you establish Predefined Publishing Times?

That way, once you have established your Predefined Publishing Times, all you have to do is upload your content in Post Editor and select the “Predefined Publishing Times” option. Then your posts will be automatically scheduled during those specific times, made quick and easy for you.
