Schedule TikTok in business account

With Metricool, if you have a personal account on TikTok, you have the option of semi-automatically scheduling the videos you share on your profile.

That is to say, you leave everything ready except for the final touches of the video that you will have to do from the platform itself.

1 Access Metricool’s scheduler

Within the control panel, your Metricool operations room, click on the Scheduler and Create new publication. In the content creation box select TikTok.

2 Upload the TikTok video

Attach the TikTok video you want to schedule, remember the requirements we discussed earlier, at the top of the post so you don’t have any problems with your video.

3 Schedule your TikTok

Have you uploaded your TikTok? Add the text, hashtags (the most important ones to improve the reach of your video), mentions, etc.

Finally, select the date and time you want Metricool to notify you that you have to publish the TikTok and click on save.

4 Check the notifications

This scheduling system for TikTok is semi-automatic. This means that Metricool will notify you when it’s time to share the video, but you will be in charge of giving the final touches to the video and pressing the post button on TikTok.

TikTok has authorized this process since it respects the essence of their social platform as the filters, stickers, and music are added from the platform itself.

💡 Turn notifications on your mobile device to ensure you receive push notifications from TikTok and Metricool.

When the time to publish comes according to the date and time you have selected, you will receive one notification on your mobile device.

5 Time to Post

When you have received the Metricool notification, tap on it (or enter the application), you will see a preview of your publication, the video will be automatically saved in your gallery and you will have a button to access directly to TikTok.

Metricool redirects you to the TikTok app.

Here click on ‘Create a video’, choose the previously saved video from the gallery (if you do it via email you will have to save it manually) and take the last steps before publishing: add filters, music, effects, cover image or the details you want.

6 Click on Post!

When you add the finishing touches to your video with the TikTok options, you just have to paste the text you had programmed in Metricool and choose a cover photo.

Select the privacy and content options you want… Done!

Click Post, and you have your scheduled video successfully posted on TikTok.

Scheduling on TikTok allows you to keep your content strategy under control and ensure that your profile is permanently active.

Remember that in addition to planning your TikTok content, you can also analyze the performance of your videos, generate professional reports and import your data to Data Studio.
