How to use it.

First of all, you have to activate TIME and Date channel by going HERE  and selecting “Facebook”. Then select your Time zone, and you have successfully activated this channel.

  1. Now “Create a Recipe”
  2. Then, click on blue highlighted “IfTHISthenthat” there.
  3. Now you will be redirected to options with lots of ICONS. Select “Date and Time” option.
  4. Now select that you want it every day, every hour, every day of the week or every year on. As we want it to be done once and then we will delete the RECIPE, so I would advice to go with “Every Year On”.
  5. After that, select date and time at which you want to schedule Facebook status update for.
  6. Three options with different methods of status update will appear – Plain text update, link post, Post with Image. Select the one which you need.
  7. Finally, a box will appear where you have to write down your status.
  8. Click on “Create Action”, then click on “CREATE RECIPE” and you are done !
