For Facebook posts, it is possible for superordinate teams to schedule posts that are then published on the pages of the subordinate teams. Such externally scheduled posts then appear with a grey dashed label in the Post Plan of the subordinate team and are published at the scheduled time by default, but can also be rejected.

Receive opt-out posts

If a superordinate team has scheduled a Facebook post for one or more of your team's pages, you will see it highlighted in grey in your Post Plan. You will also receive an email notification as the page owner if you have activated this.

Click on the post in your post plan or on Review in the email to go to the post preview. You cannot edit the post, but you can decide whether to publish it on your page(s). By default, publishing is activated, which is indicated by the blue switch next to the page. By clicking on the switch, you can disable the publication on the respective page. It is now displayed in grey.

Create opt-out posts

As a member of a superordinate team, you can publish a Facebook post for a page of a subordinate team, e.g. as editor-in-chief or central administrator. Please note the following team settings and page assignments.

You must be in a team that is superordinate to the team for which you want to schedule a post. Also, the page you want to schedule a post for must be assigned to the subordinate team, but not assigned to your superordinate team.

If these requirements are met, you can easily schedule a Facebook post for the corresponding page. Team members from the subordinate team will now see the post with a mark in their post plan and can decide whether they want to disable publishing. They are not permitted to edit the post.

Settings for email notifications

You can decide whether the person registered as the Facebook page owner should receive an email notification about new posts scheduled by others. Two settings must be made for this.

Firstly, the notifications about centrally scheduled content to the Facebook page owner must be activated in the publisher settings.

In addition, the person registered as the page owner must activate e-mail notifications of posts where you have the option to opt out in the account settings.
