Introducing Instagram Reels Planner: A New Way to Schedule and Plan 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 and schedule your content for Reels on IG Planner.

    With PLANOLY’s Reels Planner you can upload video content to IG Planner, select your cover photo, plan and organize your Reels on your grid, and schedule a reminder email or push notification to post your content when it's time!

    How Does Reels Planner Work? 

    Schedule your Reel from PLANOLY’s Web Dashboard:
    1. Open the PLANOLY app and tap the “+” sign
    2. Choose a source and upload a video
    3. Select “Upload as a Reel
    4. Upload a cover photo by clicking on the “+ Upload Cover” button
    5. Select your file and click “Upload” - your Reel has now been uploaded to your grid as an unscheduled post!
    6. From your grid, click on your Reel and choose a date and time to schedule your reminder notification*
    7. Your Reel post will be scheduled through PLANOLY and you’ll receive a push notification on your Mobile App once it’s time to post.

    What happens after you schedule a Reel? 

    1. Once it’s time to post your Reel, you’ll get a push notification on your phone or an email reminder
    2. Click on it from your phone, and you will be taken into the app to post now - Your Reel & cover photo will be auto-downloaded to your phone, and your caption will be automatically copied for quicker posting
    3. Click “Post Reel”, and it will take you into the Instagram app to publish it! 
    4. Upload your media (it should be at the top of your camera roll for easy access)
    5. Make any finishing edits in IG's editor, paste your caption, and share your Reel to IG!

    *Please note: Due to Instagram limitations, Reels are not available for auto posting, but you can visually plan them in your grid. You can enable notification on the mobile app or web dashboard to be reminded to post your Reel manually on your planned time and date.
