    How To Use PLANOLY Plan Report

    Step 1

    This feature is only available on the desktop version of PLANOLY, so you'll need to be on a computer to access it. Start by signing into your account on planoly.com as you usually would. Once you're logged in, you can access PLANOLY Plan Report within your main content planning view beneath the PLAN tab on the top righthand corner. Whenever you're in the PLAN view, you'll then see an icon with an image of a clipboard to the right of the Month/Week view with the word REPORT below it. Clicking on this icon will direct you to the PLANOLY Plan Report Page.

    Step 2

    Once you've landed on the PLANOLY Plan Report Page, you'll have a few different viewing options. You can filter between a content view of posts that are unscheduled, scheduled, or both. The 'unscheduled' display option will show you all of the uploaded media on your grid that is currently not scheduled; the 'scheduled' option will show you all of the media that you've scheduled to post, and the 'both' option will show you both scheduled and unscheduled content. Switch between these views to generate different reports for you and your team based on what you want to share with your clients or team.

    Step 3

    Now here's the best part: sharing your PLANOLY Plan Report with your team! You can quickly and effortlessly structure your plan of action for the week by giving your clients or team a quick snapshot or preview of your Instagram content.For example, you can share scheduled posts with a client so that they have the opportunity to review and approve visuals and caption copy before they go live. There are two ways to do this.

    • Grab the link. Select the scheduled post view, and then click on GET LINK on the top right of the PLANOLY Plan Report Page. This copies a shareable link directly to your clipboard that will last for 48 hours. You'll know it's saved to your clipboard because you'll see a 'Link Copied' message pop up! Paste this link into an email, or share it within a message.
    • Email it out! The other option is to click on EMAIL. Clicking on this option will automatically open an EMAIL PLAN REPORT view. Within this view, you can enter the desired email or email addresses of your recipients, and check or uncheck the box to send all filtered media. Click SEND to email it out!
