Why are my 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 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.
