How to schedule an episode on Spreaker Studio for Desktop

Now that we’ve talked about how to use the auto-ducking feature, today we’ll take a look at how to schedule an episode on Spreaker Studio for Desktop. This is the second post in our new “How-To” blog series to help you better understand how to use Spreaker’s platform. Post by post, we’ll focus on each of the apps and features that Spreaker offers to the community, breaking down the steps through handy visuals.

If you’re planning your podcast, you know how important it can be to record your next episode well in advance of publishing it to the world. With Spreaker Studio for Desktop you can take care of the entire process in one place: recording, saving, scheduling, and publishing all without having to worry!

Record with Spreaker Studio

First thing’s first, record your episode (we recommend you use a good microphone).

schedule 1


Personalize the episode

Give it a strong title and add an image, which you can do by dragging one to the app and dropping it in the provided square (where it helpfully says: DROP IMAGE HERE). Remember that the image should be bigger than 400×400 px in size and smaller than 5MB!

Schedule 2 - immagine episode


Schedule it!

Then, just click on the PUBLISH button and a window will appear where you can manage all the episode’s settings, including when and at what time to publish your episode. Tick on the Publish Later option, set the time and date, and then click on PUBLISH. Hint: to give your podcast more reach, consider to write a good description and to auto-sharing episodes to your social media accounts. If you click on the logos towards the top right of the window, you can easily activate auto-sharing to Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud, Tumblr, and You Tube!

Schedule 3 - immagine episode


Check it on your profile

You’ll then be able to find your scheduled episode with the other published episodes on your account. Find it in a pinch by clicking on the grey PUBLISHED EPISODES button. (If you want to edit it again or delete it, just click on either of the icons on the right of the episode.)

Schedule 5 - immagine episode


Now you’re ready to start recording another episode! Just go through the process all over again, starting from the first gif!

    Is it possible to air schedule a pre-made show to stream live?

      Hello there,

      The scheduling feature is available just for podcasts. How would imagine this happening with a live broadcast? Feel free to share your feedback via email to support@spreaker.com. We’ll be happy to have your opinion about this.

      Thanks 🙂

    Is it possible for two shoew to go on at the same time using the Spreaker Studio from two different locations on the same PRO account?

      Hi Ralph,

      thanks for your question. With Spreaker Studio you can broadcast live for only one show at a time. If you have further questions, feel free to reach us at support@spreaker.com.

    Can you schedule with the iPad app as you can with the desktop app? I can’t figure out how to do it…

      Hi Russ,

      Thanks for asking this. The schedule feature is not available on Spreaker’s mobile apps: you can schedule an episode with Spreaker Studio for Desktop or via our CMS.

    I would like to schedule live episode, not just recording. Will you consider this option?

    • Chiara Sagramola May 30, 2018 at 10:03 am

      Hi, at the moment this feature is not available. But thanks for sharing this request, will forward it to the rest of the team.
