  3. Click the toggle for "Schedule". You will now see a date and time option.
  4. Click on the date and time to adjust to the correct date and time for your broadcast.
  5. Finish filling out the rest of your Facebook event.
  6. After this, you're all set! When you log into the Switcher Studio app, you will see the name of your scheduled broadcast already locked in for you. Simply go live at the scheduled time, and you'll be all set!
