Scheduling Reels

Uploading Reels like we can currently schedule IG stories would be great!

    We have some good news! While we are still limited by Instagrams API and can't yet offer an official way to schedule reels, our social team has found an amazing workaround that lets you schedule and view reels right from the visual planner. You can check it out here https://www.instagram.com/p/CR4iaTtHMTc/

    How is this feature not being added to the platform? I don't need a new skin on the app, I need the ability to use the features that social platforms are prioritizing. Reels, carousels, and the ability to schedule them in advance on Instagram and post automatically. This needs to be added ASAP.

    We definitely need this! If the push from Instagram is more video content, it needs to be easier to be able to schedule and post...

    Planoly allows you to add reels and IGTV videos to your grid preview manually by copying and pasting the url from your Instagram page. This would be a great feature to add to Later, at least until we can post to Reels directly from Later. This way, we can also use Linkin.bio for our reels!

    It seems that we only have a small window to really get the most out of new IG features. I wish Later would prioritze keeping up to date new features

    yes please! Just like you guys said on Latercon, Instagram is making Reels very important so I’m listening and making a bunch. But I just realizes I can’t schedule them and therefore they are not recognized by Later on my feed, which sucks because then I don’t get any analytics from my posts.
