You can connected an UNLIMITED amount of Groups and Pages, so we created a super fast way for you to say what Groups you are wanting to schedule to at this time. When you’re not as active on that network, you can click the heart back to Teal. We don’t show EVERYTHING on your schedule page because you will quickly lose your group and spend time sifting – and we are NOT about that life.
In order to schedule to a group – click the heart of the group to Navy Blue.
