What is LinkedIn Schedule Live?
This feature allows you to schedule your LinkedIn Live broadcasts ahead of time! A post is generated on LinkedIn that you can share out to your email list, or other communities, before the broadcast starts. LinkedIn users also see a "Remind Me" button that they can click to RSVP. It is available for LinkedIn Profiles and Pages.
How to Schedule a LinkedIn Live
- Make sure you have LinkedIn Live access first. You can apply for it here. Once you are approved, connect your LinkedIn Page or Profile in the destinations section of your StreamYard dashboard.
- Go to the broadcasts section
- Click “Create a Broadcast”, and select the LinkedIn Page or Profile where you'd like to broadcast.
- Check the “Schedule for later option” and select the time. See the Schedule Restrictions and Considerations.
- Click “Create Broadcast”. This will generate a post on LinkedIn. You can see this post by clicking the 3 dots on the right, and selecting "View on LinkedIn".
- Click "Enter Broadcast Studio".
- When you're ready to go live, add yourself to the broadcast, and hit "Go Live".
