  3. Tap on the Menu Bar in the top right corner (the 3 lines)
  4. Click on Settings
  5. Scroll down and click on Account
  6. Choose Switch account type 
  7. It should say either Switch to creator account / Switch to personal account OR Switch to business account / Switch to personal account         
  8. You should be all set as either a Creator or Business account!

Planoly Pro Tip: While Planoly does not support auto-posting to Personal Instagram accounts, we recommend linking an Instagram Business or Creator account. Both Business and Creator accounts are eligible for auto-posting. 

To activate auto-posting, you'll need to link with an Instagram Business or Creator account that is connected to a Facebook Business page and authenticate through Facebook. 

Please Note: If you have your account set to Personal, you will need to switch to public in order to update to a Business account.
