Finally you will need to setup the event’s parameters.  Begin by giving the event a name and then setting up the date you wish the event to begin.  Next select the time you wish the event to begin.  If you want the event to end you will need to enter and end date otherwise leave it blank.  If you wish the event to stop at a specific time then enter in an end time otherwise leave it blank.  Next select a repeat type if you wish for the event to repeat and if not leave it blank.  If you want to provide a description of the event you can supply it otherwise leave it blank.  Once you have completed the form click on the “Save Event” button. (See Figure 10)

Now that the event is setup it will begin to execute on the date supplied and at the repeated intervals chosen.  If you want to edit or delete the event you can do so by clicking on the “Edit” or “Delete” link next to the event.



You should now be able to setup a social integration on and schedule post to your social accounts.
