For a content management team in any organization, things can get chaotic between ideating, strategizing, content creation, and distribution. Looking after multiple social media platforms can be overwhelming; this is where social media schedulers come in handy. However, for an early-stage organization, subscribing to these tools can be an expensive affair, and they do not solve the organization’s specific requirements. For example, at Appsmith, we focus our distribution through Twitter, Discord, Slack, and Linkedin, and we wanted a customizable solution more suited to our needs. Our cross-platform scheduler can send a message across four channels with just one click, and we made this using Appsmith and automated the workflow with n8n.
This blog will take you through the different steps involved in building a workflow like this. You can extend this and customize it further to address specific requirements.
In this tutorial, we’ll be using the local environment of Appsmith to build the application. However, we can always export and then import Appsmith apps to different environments (cloud, self-hosted, local).
