Auto-publish multi-image posts on instagram

Currently on the paid version, you cannot auto-publish multi-image posts for Instagramm - you can only get sent a notification. Multi-image posts are a great feature and it would be fantastic to be able to  autopublish these without needing to do this on your phone (especially for weekends and late at night)

    Unfortunately the Instagram API currently only allows auto-publishing of single-photo posts (no multi-photo).

    If Instagram changes this, we will implement it!

    Some other scheduling apps can do it? Why can't Later?

    1. Tap on the Multi icon next to the "ADD NEW MEDIA" button above your grid.

    2. Upload up to 10 items from your Computer, Dropbox or Google Drive account.

    3. Drag and Drop the order you would like the items to display.

    4. Save!

    5. Write your caption and schedule the same as a regular image.

    You can schedule post but it does not auto post. This feature would be greatly appreciated. This ticket should not be closed.

     https://later.com/blog/schedule-carousel-instagram/ Later already does this! Thought I'd pass along this article to those who stumble across it, it explains how to do it. Maybe the admins forgot to switch this vote to "completed"...

    I may have to switch to another app that allows me to schedule carousel posts on Instagram automatically. As is already stated, this is pretty basic.

    I'm curious, @LuisaFrahn, which apps were allowed to post video and multiposts?

    I was thinking about signing the Premium Plan, but I'm not going to do it anymore just because of this :-(
