Adding Instagram Stories to Your Planoly Stories Queue

With Story Bar, you are able to see all your planned Stories at a glance – similar to the way that you see Stories on your Instagram feed. Just begin uploading your Stories to the bar at the top of your grid or tap on the StoriesEdit button to customize your own templates to upload.

You can also add your Instagram Stories to your Stories planner to see all of them at a glance and arrange them in the order you want to post them (the first one being the one to post first, and the last one to be the one posted last).

If you have a set of Stories that you need to upload at once, you can upload a multi-story set.
