Draft vs. Scheduled: What's the Difference?

Before we dive into the process, let's clarify the distinction between a draft and a scheduled post:

  • Draft Post: Drafts are posts that you've created but haven't scheduled for publishing. They won't be published, even if the scheduled time and date pass.

  • Scheduled Post: Scheduled posts, on the other hand, are set to go live at a specific time and date. Once scheduled, they will automatically publish at the designated moment.

How to switch Post Status

When creating a post or editing an existing one, you can switch the post's status between scheduled, draft, and request approval.

On the post, towards the bottom right, you can edit the post status by accessing the dropdown menu. Click "Save" to apply any edits.

And that's it! You've successfully switched your draft posts to scheduled, ensuring they'll be published precisely when you want them to be.

Remember that having the flexibility to change a post's status is a valuable feature for efficient social media management. Whether you need to reschedule content or simply finalize drafts, Hopper HQ makes it easy.
