Feature introduction

With this feature it is possible to schedule Stories in Swat.io. Simply select the "Story" post category when creating a new Facebook post.

ATTENTION: Facebook Stories cannot be published automatically - the Facebook API currently does not offer this option!

How to publish story posts correctly

Before publication

Ten minutes before the scheduled publication of the Facebook story, you will receive an email containing all photos, videos and notes. Photos or videos can be downloaded directly from the email to use in the Facebook story.

After publication

As soon as the post has been published, you can mark it as "Published" in the calendar. All you have to do is click on the "Published" button (until it is highlighted in blue) and then click on "Save Post".

Good to know

Story posts published directly through Facebook are not automatically imported into the calendar.
