Carousel Post Guidelines:

  • Carousel Posts are not eligible for auto-posting to Instagram or Facebook. Read more about Instagram Guidelines and Limitations
  • Up to 10 Media Items can be added to a Carousel Post

PLANOLY Pro Tip: Instagram does not support tagging users or locations on Carousel

posts outside of Instagram. If you wish to have users and a location tagged on your post, this will need to be added once it’s published and live on Instagram.

Why Aren’t My Carousels or Stories Not Auto-Posting to Instagram? 

Although PLANOLY is an official Instagram partner, the company still sets certain limitations on what the platform can or cannot do.  Among those current limitations are auto-posting Carousels and Stories posts. Unfortunately, we have no control over this issue at the time. But if and when Instagram lifts those restrictions, we’ll be the first to offer that feature! For now, you can auto-post single images and videos, tag users/locations, and first comments.
