Support Posting to Facebook Groups

I would love to be able to post directly to a group I am admin in. This functionality would get me to leave my free account and pay a membership fee.

    Later team! Can you give your audience an update on if/when this feature will be available? I am going to have to make a choice soon about whether or not to continue my subscription. Love the program for Instagram but not having this integration is doubling my work and I unfortunately can't afford the time wasted...

    With this feature it'd also be SO helpful to be able to schedule to multiple groups! Our account has one main group, but dozens of smaller groups that are created around events or trips.

    I am testing Later and Hootsuite at the moment. I like the layout of Later and the hashtag recommendations. But not being able to post to my groups is an issue. Can you please bring this on as a benefit. Thanks in advance.

    Hootsuite publishes in groups. This is a deal breaker for me. As much as I would like to go with Later, I am having to go with Hootsuite simply for this issue. You are losing customers because of this. I suggest that you speed up the process because Later is looking weak among the competition. When you get this going, let me know as Hootsuite is expensive and I would like to have value for money.

    This was a deal breaker for me. I have been paying for another service that allows instagram, business page, and facebook groups. i liked the options for stories built in but not without being able to schedule in facebook groups. Cancelled my subscription.

    So this thing is up since 2016. Here in Australia it is 2020, so four years later and it still has not been actioned? Or any updates by Later??? Seriously?!?!

    I have a paid Later account and love using it to plan out my weekly social media content, however I have just started a Facebook group for my business. I want to be able to schedule to this group but later does not have that ability. I have been using later for years but it seems that I may have to change to another provider. I am currently trying out hootsuit and I am not liking it is as much as later. However I can not justify paying for two services that do the same thing, so if Later does not introduce posting to group within a month I am afraid I will have to cancel my paid plan.

    This would be very helpful!

    I agree. This is a very important part of social media marketing and I would love to see it integrated into the Later app.

    YES! Please make this happen asap. I need my Later account to automatically post and get analytics etc. associated with the appropriate facebook GROUP. (Just because it's not a "page" is not acceptable. If this doesn't happen soon I will absolutely be canceling - and I really love Later.

    No FB group?! Whyyyyyyy? This is ridiculous. I might have to go back to buffer.

    I was about to sign up for a paid plan when I realized I can't use it for FB Groups. What a shame! We're in 2020!

    Yes, agree, this would be a massively useful feature for me too. If Hootsuite could do it, you guys can too!

    Please prioritize this feature! I currently have 10 Facebook groups we are managing and quickly growing.

    This was a deal breaker for us - we signed up toLater for a month but have left because we could not post into Facebook Groups

    Seriously this really needs to happen. I hope more people will push them to make this happen quick because with the way things are going on facebook, we need more engagement with the groups that care about the content we're sharing.

    I see planned, but for when...?
