What Is The Queue?
The Queue is a library of all the unique Posts you have created or imported and a timeline of when they will be published to your followers. You will only ever see one instance of a Post in your Queue, even if it is Evergreen and set to recycle.
No previous or Past Posts are visible in your Queue, only future Posts.
There are 3 ways to view the Queue.
1. List view
2. Weekly view
When viewing the Queue in weekly format, you can choose to 'Show unused timeslots' to better understand what type of content you have created and scheduled thus far.
3. Monthly view
When viewing the Queue in monthly format, you can choose to 'Group posts' by Profile and Category to get a better understanding of your monthly content mix.

You can also use the filters on the left-hand side of the Queue to further narrow your view to each Sub-Queue! Learn more here:
The Order Of The Queue
If you use 'Set a Date and Time' to manually post an article, it will be independent of the Queue, ‘pinned’ to its own specific time and marked with these Pins:
After adding content to your Queue, you can reorder your posts if you need to, unless they are pinned, as in the example above.
The Queue In Action
When it’s time to publish your Posts, it doesn’t matter if they are one-time or Evergreen; they will be published in the order in which they appear in your Queue.
When a one-time post is published, it is removed from the Queue, and the next item in your Queue becomes the top item.
Whenever an Evergreen post is published, it is then moved to the bottom of the Queue, where it waits in turn to be posted again on its next cycle.
So, for example, if it was #1 in a Queue with 10 Posts, after it is posted, the 2nd item in the Queue moves up to #1, and the Evergreen post is added to the bottom of the Queue as #10.
