How to Use Best Times to Post

Before you get started, make sure that the feature has been turned on by using the Suggest Best Times toggle:

Then, you can select the account that you want your suggested times generated for. Click on the drop down menu above the toggle to select your social account:

From here, HeyOrca will generate your suggested posting times automatically.

HeyOrca syncs with your social accounts and calculates them based on your top-performing posts published in the past three months.

*For X (Twitter) profiles, these suggestions will be based on the most recent 100 posts.

Certain times will have star ratings, that show anywhere from 1-5 stars. 1 is the lowest-performing posting time, and 5 stars is the highest-performing posting time.

As shown in the example below, the highest star rankings you see are your posts that were created and performed highly at the publishing time.

Want to sort by different engagement types? Click the drop-down menu next to Best times per day, based on To change your engagement metric. Your posting times may change based on this selection, so you’ll have further data on best times to post based on those metrics.
