New! Get Early Access to Later’s TikTok Scheduler
It’s official — TikTok Scheduling is here.
With over 850 million monthly users (and counting) TikTok offers a big opportunity for businesses looking to reach new audiences.
In this blog, we’ll explain how to start planning and scheduling your TikTok posts with Later — as well as all the benefits you can gain:
Grow Your TikTok Following with Later
Looking to grow your following and attract potential customers on TikTok?
You’re in the right place! Social media is all about building a strong community — and the key to creating a community on TikTok is being consistent. The more you show up, the more your audience will understand your brand and resonate with your content.
Easier said than done? We get it! Staying on top of social media takes time.
But with Later, you can manage your TikTok alongside your other social channels (including Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook) all from one easy-to-use dashboard — so you can save time and get more eyes on your content!
What is Early Access Mode?
New Later features go through a range of development stages before we share them far and wide.
This process helps us gather feedback, make updates and enhancements, and finish with a feature that delivers real value for our customers.
By test-driving TikTok Scheduling in Early Access mode, you’ll get an early look at our latest features — and we’ll learn from what you like (or dislike) to make your experience even better.
We’ve got big plans to expand our offering when it comes to TikTok, and your feedback is what counts the most.
How to Schedule TikTok Videos with Later
Step #1: Add Your TikTok Profile to Your Later Account
You can do this 2 ways:
1. Calendar View: Add a TikTok Profile by clicking the plus (+) sign at the top of the page:
2. Account Settings: Navigate to Settings and then Social Sets & Access Groups. Click “Details” to add a Profile:
Step #2: Choose a Video to Post to TikTok

TIP: Save time by scheduling to multiple profiles at once with a multi-profile post.
Step #3: Crop and Trim your Videos for TikTok
Make sure your content is optimized for TikTok. Tap “Edit” and crop your video size by selecting the TikTok crop. Select the “Trim” tool to adjust the length of the video.
You’ll still have access to all of TikTok’s cool editing features when it’s time to post.
TIP: TikTok videos must be between 3 and 60 seconds long.
Step #4: Add a Caption and Hashtags
Write your caption and remember to include hashtags to maximize your post’s reach.
TIP: Use Later’s Saved Captions feature to save your most-used hashtags so you can quickly add them in future posts. Not sure what hashtags you should be using on TikTok? Get the lowdown in this blog post.
Hit “Save” and your post will be scheduled for your chosen time.
