How do I automatically add photos to a randomized social media library and avoid reposting within 30 days?

I currently have daily social media posts scheduled where the topics and images are randomized but I’m trying to accomplish 2 things that I can’t sort out:

  1. Every time I upload a photo to GoogleDrive, I want that photo to be added to the library of photos that are randomly chosen from.
  2. Once a photo is selected, I want to make sure that it doesn’t get posted again within 30 days.

This is how my current Zap looks:

 

I’ve tested quite a few ideas that I’ve come up with but I can’t get it to work. Also, right now I’m using photobucket to host the images instead of Google Drive since I can’t sort out how to use photos from it for posts.

 

Thanks!

Hi @D58Farmers 

Here’s how I’d approach this…

I’d use Airtable to log the images.

You can log the timestamp when an image was last used in a Date field.

Airtable has Views, which are segments of data. (sort, filter, etc.)

Idea being to create a View with filter conditions that check for images with a last posted timestamp >30 days.
