Creating draft Facebook posts

Hey all,

I’m very new to Make - and web development as a whole - but hoping this will be a simple solution.

I want to create draft Facebook page posts every time a new CMS item is created on my Webflow site. The scenario I have is very close and it does work, only it publishes the post immediately instead of creating a draft. Is there a module I haven’t found yet with a draft function?

I do see that there is a Date field in the Facebook Pages module, but I want to know that I’ll have access to the post if it were scheduled to be published, in case I want to modify or delete it.

Any help would be so appreciated. Thanks very much!

There is no direct way to create a post in the draft however, you can schedule this post to go live at a future date (so indirectly it will be kept as a draft).

Thank you @GrowwStacks for your help. Is there a way of making it something like ‘a week from now’ rather than a specific date?

Yes. Use date functions

Heya @petra welcome to the community :wave:

I just wanted to let you know that we recently published a guide on Date & time functions that could be helpful: 🎓 [Getting Started With Functions p. 3] Date Functions

That’s helpful, thank you Michaela!
