How to Schedule Posts on LinkedIn in 2023

Who are my friends that love LinkedIn? Have you got the *NEW* scheduling feature on your account yet? Did you know that you can now schedule posts on LinkedIn right inside the app? Here’s what you need to know when it comes to how to schedule posts on LinkedIn: 
  • You can now create posts and schedule them to go live at a later time. You can also view the list of all the posts that you’ve scheduled.
  • Currently, scheduling posts is not supported for the following types of posts: ❌ Events, Jobs, Services, Polls, Multiphoto, Reshares, Posts to Groups, Posts created by company administrators
  • If you add any of the above types to your post, you will see an error message indicating that scheduling is not supported for that post. Either clear the selected date/time to post immediately or remove the invalid post type
  • No more need to pay for a 3rd party scheduling app, now you can schedule right inside the app!
⚠️ Important to know: This feature is being gradually rolled out and may not be available for iOS at this time.
