How to make the most of Plann, our new visual planning + scheduler app for Instagram.

We wanted to make you the easiest, friendliest and happiest Instagram scheduler you could get your hands on, so if you’re after a few starter tips – we’re happy to get you moving in the right direction.

To take you through getting started, the lovely Suze Ford has offered her fine art feed for inspiration.

Downloaded Plann and need a few starter tips?

Let’s go!

‘Log-in to Instagram’

We’ve worked with Instagram so you can see your whole feed at a glance!

Logging into Instagram allows us to display your last 20 images posted from Instagram, from here you can see how your feed is already looking and where to next.

(As these images are being mirrored from Instagram, they’re display only. If you’re not happy with how it looks, the changes you make on Instagram will be mirrored inside Plann.)

Plann - Instagram post app

*NOTE: Instagram does not allow automatic posting, from anywhere, at all.

It is against their terms of use and could result in your account being shut down.

Plann works by sending you a notification at a specific time you’ve selected so you can close post yourself – which is completely safe.


How do you know you’ve set the right time?

What do the colours in the gallery mean?

We’ve designed a beautifully simplistic way for you to see your productivity in a tiny glance.

The corners will let you know if your images are scheduled or still waiting to be set.
