Instagram is rolling out its new in-app post scheduling tools to all professional accounts in the app. The new option enables brands to schedule photos, carousels and Reels directly in the app, as much as seventy-five days in advance.
Here is how you can schedule Reels:
- In the creation flow, tap ‘Advanced Settings’ before sharing the post
- Tap ‘Schedule this post’
- Select the time and date you want it to go live
- Tap ‘Schedule’ in the post composer
Functionally, this doesn’t add anything new as users have been able to schedule posts via Creator Studio since 2020.
But it could make it easier to manage your content on the go, and with the ability to schedule Reels so far in advance, this feature could help you maximize your content performance.
Instagram says that the option is rolling out from today, so if you don’t have it yet, you will shortly.
As usual, if you have any questions on how to get the most out of Instagram or any other media platform, please contact us today. We are here to help.
