Frequently Asked Questions
TELL ME MORE ABOUT PLANN?
Sick of frustrating, time consuming ways to plan out your Instagram feed?
Plann was designed by an Advertising expert with a love of Instagram to make sure you get the best experience.
It was designed to help you curate the perfect Instagram feed, appeal to your audience faster, grow your readership by visually planning for a specifically visual platform.
We know businesses and bloggers can grow their profits significantly with a bit of planning.
WHO WAS THIS INSTAGRAM PLANNING APP MADE FOR?
Plann was developed for creatives, bloggers and business owners OR anyone slightly neurotic about their Instagram style!
Those that understand making a great first impression is crucial to growing followers, increasing engagements and making money.
DO YOU PUT A WATERMARKED LOGO ON MY IMAGES?
How do I use this new social media tool?
Once you've completed the download, you're ready to go!
Simply upload your chosen images, drag + drop until your feed looks fabulous, plan out your posts and schedule when it's time to upload.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IT'S TIME TO POST?
We'll send you a push notification to your phone to let you know it's time.
You simply paste your pre-planned caption and push it to Instagram! Easy!
WHY CAN'T YOU JUST POST FOR ME?
Instagram's terms of service don't allow 3rd party apps to post automatically into the platform. (They actually state in their terms they might suspend accounts that do that!)
As your cheerleader, we'd NEVER compromise your hard work so we don't completely automate the process, we just ask you to push post when it's time.
AND IF I ACCIDENTALLY MISS THE TIME I SCHEDULED?
We understand you might get busy, Plann won't harass you by sending multiple notifications, we'll just add a red alarm clock to the image letting you know the post is overdue. Post when you're ready or re-set a new time.
WHAT ABOUT POST CAPTIONS?
Instagram extended a few restrictions in Nov 2015 so we can't add your post captions for you.
We've made it easy, simply push a button that copies the post to your clipboard, and 'paste' it when Instagram is open and you post your image. Presto!
WHERE SHOULD I PUT MY HASHTAGS?
Save families of hashtags within Plann, we recommend you to paste them into your first comment to ensure you're entering them at the most crucial time (and keeping your feed beautiful)

Yes! Just make sure they're 60" or under as otherwise we can't push them into Instagram for you.

(Need more than 3? There's also an affordable 'unlimited accounts' option for you too!)

WHERE CAN I IMPORT IMAGES FROM?
It's important we get the basics right, to start with Plann will input images stored on your phone.
We're looking into 3rd party compatibilities (like Dropbox and Google Drive) and they currently on the list next.
We're also building in a server so you can cross check your Planns across devices, or handover to an assistant if
it's all starting to get a bit too much.
CAN I TURN OFF THE PUSH NOTIFICATIONS? THEY'RE KINDA ANNOYING.
If the beeps or messages get a bit much, you can turn them off
settings > notifications > Plann > turn "allow notifications" off.
