Introducing Instagram Reels Planner: A New Way to Plan, Schedule and Auto-Post Your Reels Content on PLANOLY

    November 29 2021

    Reels has become the biggest contributor to engagement growth on Instagram. Instagram has been working to prioritize tools that enable the creation of video content. That’s why we’re excited to share that we are launching Reels Planner: PLANOLY’s new paid feature that will allow you to plan, schedule and auto-post your content for Reels on IG Planner. 

    With PLANOLY’s Reels Planner you can upload video content to IG Planner, plan, organize, and auto-post your Reels from PLANOLY’s web dashboard, or schedule a reminder email or push notification to post your content when it's time from the web dashboard or mobile app!

    How Does Reels Planner Work?

    Auto-posting your Reels from PLANOLY’s Web Dashboard or Mobile App:

    Auto-posting is our newest feature for Reels Planner, with this update you can now auto-post your Reels to Instagram via PLANOLY. Once you auto-post a Reel via PLANOLY,  your Reel will be automatically shared to your grid and Reels tab on Instagram.
     
    Please note: Due to Instagram limitations, Reels that are scheduled for auto-posting can’t include a cover image, but you can add the cover image through Instagram once your Reel has been published or you can schedule a reminder notification and post it manually including a cover image. Auto-posting is limited to Instagram Business Accounts.
