    Before we dive into our Reels Planner and Pin Planner, check out some ways PLANOLY supports your video planning so you can better organize and save time.

    • Plan your content anytime, anywhere by uploading videos right from your phone, computer, Dropbox, or Google Drive.
    • Edit your videos by cutting and combining clips, adding filters, and more with our advanced video editor on the mobile app.
    • Auto-post videos to Instagram (grid videos only), Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter with the option to further customize your content to each channel using our edit and share feature.
    • Schedule reminders to post for Instagram Reels (more on that later!), as well as Story posts after uploading to Stories Planner.

    Work Around Blockers to Uploading  

    • No video? No worries! Haven’t recorded or processed your video yet but want to plan your grid around future content? Add a grid placeholder for video content you’re still working on.

    Upload a Cover Photo

    In addition to the video planning features mentioned above, Reels Planner gives you the opportunity to select and upload a cover photo that aligns with your grid aesthetic, instead of a still from the video. 

    Schedule & Repurpose Content

    Plan ahead and schedule a reminder email or push notification to post your Reel when it’s ready! Once you publish your Reel to Instagram, it will save to your phone and you can repurpose your videos for TikTok.

    Keep Your Grid Up-to-Date

    With Reels Planner, you can say goodbye to manually importing Reels to your PLANOLY grid. Once your Reel is published, your grid will automatically update so you can continue visually planning your content.

     

    Pin Planner

    Last but certainly not least, ​​build your Pinterest video strategy with PLANOLY’s Pin Planner. On Pin Planner, you can upload, schedule, and publish static and video Pins to Pinterest. Plus, the visual library makes it easier than ever to organize and plan your Pins. 

    Using our campaigns feature, you can bulk schedule Pins and manage hundreds of images and videos across multiple Pinterest boards - giving you an ever-present voice on Pinterest.
