1. How to connect your TikTok account

To connect your TikTok account to Loomly:

  • Go to the Social Accounts tab of your Calendar Settings page, and connect your TikTok account by clicking on the green Connect button for TikTok:

📝 Note:

Loomly was created on a calendar basis. In each calendar, you can connect one account per social media platform. So, if you need to connect two TikTok accounts, for example, you will currently have to create two calendars.

You can also easily create a post that can be cloned on multiple calendars. You will be able to access all your posts from All Calendars.

A. How to manually publish using push notification reminders

To publish to TikTok, you can use Loomly's push notifications:

When it's time to publish to TikTok, Loomly will send you a push notification reminder on your phone:

📝 Note: You can also choose to receive emails, Slack, and Microsoft Teams notifications.

When you tap the notification, it will take you to the post within Loomly, where you can click Publish to TikTok:

From there, the TikTok app will open, and you can publish the post manually just as you would if you were publishing from TikTok itself. 

The video or images will be loaded, and the text of the post will be automatically copied to your clipboard. You can then paste the text, add music if you'd like and publish the post to TikTok as you normally would.

Download the Loomly app to create and manage your posts or to receive push notifications on your mobile phone:

B. My post says "published" in Loomly, but the post was not published. How do I publish the post now?

There are instances where the push notification was opened, but all the steps to manually publish the post in the native TikTok app were not completed.

You can still publish the post by following these steps from the Loomly mobile app:

  1. Find the post you'd like to manually publish in the Loomly mobile app.

  2. Go to Publish Details.

  3. Select Republish to TikTok.

  4. Scroll down, then select Republish to TikTok.

  5. You may see the loading sign, but the TikTok mobile app should open up afterwards with the video or slideshow loaded.

  6. Make any edits you would like within the TikTok app, then select Next.

  7. Paste the caption.

  8. Press Post.

  9. Then, simply return to the Loomly app if you'd like to continue working in Loomly.
