Understanding Queue and Posting Schedules [As of January 2016]

Queue is an easy way to share content via an optimized posting schedule. Each social network has its own individual queue associated with it when using Queue as a posting action. A social network can't have more than one posting schedule or more than one Queue.

Your content has two posting actions. When logged into dlvr.it, you will see a list of your sources and the posting action associated with a source. Each can be identified by a unique icon as illustrated below:

A. Content Source(s) =>> Automate (when we see a post in the feed, it is sent immediately - not on a schedule)

OR

B. Content Source(s) =>> Queue (sent with an optimized posting time)

There are several ways to add content to queue:

  1. Automate: RSS Feed
  2. Manual: Direct type of message
  3. Browser Add-on: Share while browsing the web

Important things to know about Queue

  1. Each social network has just ONE queue schedule associated with it.
  2. Social networks can have several RSS feed inputs that are sent to a single Queue schedule.
  3. When posting manual updates or through the Browser add-on, social networks can be put into Posting Groups (i.e., Group A = Personal Social Networks, Group B = Business Social Networks.)
  4. When you add a social network, a Queue is automatically created for that social network. It sits idol until you choose to use it.
