Need to plan for another network or don't have publishing permissions for the account?

Try a Placeholder Account.

Connect Placeholder Accounts to act as placeholders on your calendar. Plan your content for channels like TikTok, Reddit or even blog posts!

Collaborate with team members on edits, and send to your clients for approval. The only difference is you’ll have to publish placeholder content manually.
