Scheduled Posts for Instagram? Yes! It Is Now Possible

Posted by @stacytheobald, Wed, Aug 7 2:28pm

Remember the times when you had to go to third-party apps that would allow you to schedule posts for Instagram? Well, they are about to become history now that Facebook will allow you to schedule your posts to both Instagram feed and IGTV and no, it is not possible yet to schedule your Instagram Stories.

If you didn’t use Facebook Creator for your posts yet, maybe it is a good time to start using it and find its benefits.

How to scheduled posts for Instagram?

First, of course, you must have an Instagram account linked to your Facebook Creator Studio. As we told you, if you don’t have it, go and do it now.

After you completed the first step, then go to your profile, at the top left of your screen and tap the “Create post” button. Once you do this, you will be asked whether you want to create a post for your feed or IGTV. Choose your format and proceed to the next step.

If, for example, you have chosen the feed version post, you can select multiple images – which was not allowed by the third-party apps used to schedule posts – and after that add your caption including words and emojis. You can also select a location or tag a person or business in the post.

When everything is set, all you have to do is select the date and time you want your post to appear on the feed or IGTV. Instead of tapping the Publish button, you will be able to select the moment you want to publish the post.

Another benefit, if you work in an agency and you are not the only one that posts for a brand on Instagram is that you can also see all the other posts that have been scheduled for a business account.

This update will bring much joy to marketers all over the world, because they won’t have to use another app to schedule the posts on Instagram, but they will do it from the native app.

oh this is great news.
My next step is figuring out how to unlink our facebook page to our old instagram account and then link to our new insta account. For some reason my edit doesn't "stick"
