Great news for all you busy #girlbosses! You can now plan your Instagram Stories ahead of time with Planoly!
Planoly is a visual planner for Instagram that makes it easy to strategize what pictures you want to post and when to post them. Thanks to the app’s recent update, you can plan your Stories and coordinate them with your upcoming campaigns, tutorials, and news! In the past, you could only add content to your Stories from within the last 24 hours. However, Planoly’s new update allows you to go beyond this 24-hour rule and strategize ahead of time!
How the New Feature Works
Within Planoly, you’ll now be able to choose any video, boomerang, or photo from your albums and upload that content to your Stories planning view. Here’s the breakdown:
When on your grid view, tap on the Stories (S) icon in the top left corner. This will take you to the Stories view!
Tap the plus (+) button on the bottom of the screen to add content to your Stories planning view. You can upload any type of media from your albums, Dropbox, or Google Drive. Then, drag and drop the content to be in your desired order!
Tap on the content to add notes or draft captions.
Schedule the Story for your desired time or “Post Now.”
When you receive the push notification, the caption will be copied for you to paste into your Story. Simply tap on your Stories icon, swipe up to add media, and select the media that was saved to your camera roll.
If you have a caption, tap on the text (Aa) caption and paste! If you want to mention someone, tap the name, select the right username, and it will become underlined! Keep in mind that only underlined usernames will work.
Quick tip: If you change your mind and want to change the media but keep the caption, simply swap out your Stories media!
Planning ahead for your Instagram Stories is now so much easier and convenient, thanks to Planoly! This feature isn’t available in any other app, so be sure to give Planoly a try! If you want to get your first month FREE, simply use the code “BLOGUETTES” at checkout!
