Scheduling a post using Facebook Creator Studio

Scheduling your post via Facebook Creator Studio is not a difficult task. Just follow the basic ways of composting a post and click on the arrow beside the ‘Publish’ button. You will see these two options:
Saving: You can save the post before publishing it on your page. Later, you can get quick access to this post from your Drafts.
Scheduling: You can set a future time and date to get your post live.
Wasn’t that simple?
What makes it easy to schedule is the Content Library feature. It gives you an overview of all the FB posts you have scheduled on your FB pages.
Moreover, the library allows you to narrow down your search using various filters, such as:
Post type: Videos, photos, text, links, etc.
Post status: Expiring, posted, drafted, scheduled, etc.
Time frame: See posts from a specific month or year.
