Default posting rule is 2 evergreen posts per 24 hours. This means Hiplay will send two posts from your evergreen tab to the Buffer queue. You can adjust number of posts according to your own preferences.

Or you can select option: Post only when queue gets empty. Evergreen posts will be sent to your Buffer once we detect that queue is empty.

    Hi Kestutis,

    I can see this being useful for Twitter, but when posting to the other networks, we need to be able to adjust the formatting of the post. For example, LinkedIn doesn’t support hashtags and gives us more room to write. FB and G+ do support hashtags and allow carriage returns, so it looks cleaner if you write a description and then post a blank line under it and enter hashtags there. So, we need to be able to have different composers for each network.

      I don’t think you get a composer, the composer is in Buffer (or at least that’s what I’ve been reading, I’m signing up today) and there are different for each Social Media platform, with Hiplay you choose which of your Buffer posts is going to be evergreen, meaning which ones are going to be re-buffered.

    Does Hiplay let you schedule the post for a particular date and time of day?
