Creating and scheduling content is one thing, but understanding how to effectively manage your social media accounts content schedule is where you can take control over your social media and optimize your time.

Viewing Your Content Calendar

Flick makes it easy to view all the content you’ve scheduled with both weekly and monthly calendar views.

Weekly View

With Flick's weekly view, you can see all your scheduled content for the week at a glance. Each day is broken down into hours, so you can easily see when your content is scheduled. If you need to make changes to your schedule, simply drag and drop your content to a new time or date.

Plus, you can use the "Best Time to Post" feature to schedule your content for when your users are most active on Instagram.

The best time to post highlights when your Instagram audience is most likely to be online to maximize your engagement. Other socials may vary.

Monthly View

The monthly view on Flick is perfect for those who love to plan ahead and stay organized. With a complete overview of everything scheduled for the month, you can see your content in its entirety. And if you need to add a new post to your schedule, just select the "+" sign on any day and add it to your schedule.

Feed Preview

Not only can you see your upcoming content on your calendar, but you can also see how it will look on your Instagram feed before it goes live. With Feed Preview, you can rearrange your upcoming posts to find the perfect aesthetic for your feed, and any moved content will automatically update with new scheduled dates and times. It's a foolproofway to make sure your content looks just the way you want it to when it's published.

Editing Schedule From Feed Preview

If you need to fine-tune your schedule after moving your content around with the drag-and-drop feature, you can use the sidebar to make further tweaks. Whether you need to change the time or date of a post, just make your edits and click "Apply" to save your changes.

Understanding Your Calendar

To make things simple, we’ve created icons so you can quickly decipher what type of post you’ve scheduled. Of course, you can see the actual image of your post on your calendar, but you’ll also notice a small icon on the bottom right of each scheduled content indicating the type of post.

Drafts ✏️

Your draft posts will show up on your calendar with a small pencil icon on the image. This will let you know the post is set for a specific time and date but is not yet finished. Any content on your calendar which is still in ‘draft’ will not be published to your Instagram account.

Auto Posting ⚡️

The lightning bolt represents a post that is set for automatic publishing. Any post which shows the lightning bolt icon will be published at the time and date shown on the calendar automatically.

Notification Post 🔔

Any post set to notification post will show the bell icon. Any post you see with the bell notification will mean the scheduled content will need to be posted manually. You will receive a notification on your mobile, where you’ll be able to quickly access everything you need to post.
