We know that our marketers and power-users are busy people--and that they want to post at the right time for maximum impact. That's why we're excited to introduce Video Scheduler, a new feature that allows Creators and Business Accounts to schedule a post up to 10 days in advance.

You can find this feature on the web upload page. Once you've scheduled a post, it will then be visible on both the web version and the app version of TikTok. You can schedule videos anywhere from 15 minutes to 10 days in advance of publishing.

You'll need a Business Account or Creator Account in order to access desktop scheduling. If you don't already have one, you can go to Settings > Account to change your account type.
