  2. Choose a source and upload a video
  3. Select “Upload as a Reel
  4. Upload a cover photo by clicking on the “+ Upload Cover” button
  5. Select your file and click “Upload” - your Reel has now been uploaded to your grid as an unscheduled post!
  6. From your grid, click on your Reel and choose a date and time to schedule your reminder notification

Schedule your Reel from PLANOLY’s Mobile App:

  3. Select “Upload as a Reel” 
  4. Upload a cover photo by clicking on the “+ Upload Cover”

PLANOLY Pro Tip: Your Reel post will be scheduled through PLANOLY and you’ll receive a push notification on your Mobile App once it’s time to post.  

What happens after you schedule a Reel? :

  1. Once it’s time to post your Reel, you’ll get a push notification on your phone or an email reminder
  2. Click on it from your phone, and you will be taken into the app to post now - Your Reel & cover photo will be auto-downloaded to your phone, and your caption will be automatically copied for quicker posting
  3. Click post Reel, and it will take you into the Instagram app to publish it! 
  4. Upload your media (it should be at the top of your camera roll for easy access)
  5. Make any finishing tweaks in IG's editor, paste your caption, and share your Reel to IG!

Please Note: Due to Instagram limitations, Reels are not available for auto-posting, but you can visually plan them in your grid. You can enable notification on the mobile app or web dashboard to be reminded to post your Reel manually on your planned time and date.
