How to repost the same cover at intervals?

If you want your cover to be regularly reposted at a selected interval, then tick the box next to “Interval” in the menu.

Then, you’ll be able to choose the frequency: daily, weekly, or other (customizable).

Scheduling intervals for covers

Why should you use this functionality? If you organize any recurring events or have special offers available periodically, you can remind your followers about them with a cover reposted at regular intervals.

You only schedule once, set the interval, and the cover photo will change and re-upload according to the set interval time.
