  • Easily copy and past captions & audio from PLANOLY into TikTok

  • *New: You can now also save TikTok videos/sounds as ideas on PLANOLY from your phone!*

We created a way to easily save video and audio ideas from TikTok directly into PLANOLY. With the amount of content and new trends that you consume every day on TikTok, it can be hard to keep track or remember all of the videos you found inspiration from. You’ll be able to save videos & audio directly into PLANOLY from the TikTok app to refer back to when you’re ready to plan, repurpose or use for inspiration when you get stuck. All of these saves will be added to a new tab on the Web Dashboard for easy access.

    • From your phone, save TikTok videos & audio directly into PLANOLY from the TikTok app to refer back to when you’re ready to plan, repurpose or use for inspiration. All of these saves will be added to the Ideas tab on the Web Dashboard.
    • When you’re scrolling on TikTok and find something you want to save for later, click the “share” arrow. Find “PLANOLY”, add notes to remind yourself of how you might want to repurpose the trend, and then click “Upload”. This idea will be on your Web Dashboard for future reference.

What is a social set? 

  • A social set includes one Instagram account, one Pinterest profile, and one TikTok account. The Instagram account can be linked to a Facebook account and a Twitter account for cross-posting ability. If you have multiple brands or businesses with different social accounts, you'll need one set for each profile.

Will the Video Planner curate content for you?

  • Unfortunately, no, you will need to upload your own video content into PLANOLY

Does the Video Planner replace a social media manager?

  • No, you will still need to upload, plan, and schedule your content within the Video Planner
