  1. Thank you Lisa. I’ve been waiting for more features on this FB Pages app. Now if only we could schedule shares as well.
    Have a splendid day!
    Susan

  2. I hear you Susan! I have a feeling scheduling shares will not be far behind. I’ve seen several people voicing their opinions all across social channels. You have a great day too! Lisa

  3. Hootsuite and Buffer are two other apps that can help with scheduling posts to your social networks. They even have a cross-browser bookmarklet that will work on the iPad.

  4. Hey. Glad I found this but I get no schedule icon when I try to scedule a photo post from the iphone app. Any ideas?
    Thanks!

  5. I have a question. I have the pages manager app for iOS and the schedule post feature only works on posts that have text. If I want to add a picture to the post the schedule icon disappears. Are you having issues scheduling picture posts on the android app? Do you know if other people have issues like this one with the iOS app? Thanks a bunch

  6. I have the same issue, I can only schedule text, and it’s pretty annoying.
