Compose posts in your Social Report dashboard to share to Instagram. Sharing to Instagram differs slightly from posting to your other social networks, because posts need to be published via the Social Report and Instagram apps on a mobile device. When you send or schedule to your Instagram profile from Social Report, a notification is sent to your mobile app from which you can easily publish the post via Instagram. Make sure you have the Instagram app and the latest version of the Social Report installed on your mobile device
Posts that contain an image can be sent or scheduled to Instagram and other social networks at the same time.
To set up publishing to Instagram on your mobile device
- Open your Social Report app on your iPhone and Android. If you don't have it - you can find it in the app store or google play
- Login (if you are already logged in - please log out first)
- Now you can go back to Social Report and check under My Account - you should see your device connected.
- You can now begin scheduling to your Instagram profile. When you do - you will be offered to select any of the devices available in this project.
We've put together this short video that goes over the process in more detail.
Please note the reason you can't publish directly to Instagram from your Social Report dashboard like you can other social networks is due to the fact that Instagram does not have a desktop application. You can only access their website on a mobile device, and thus all posts need to be physically posted on your mobile device after being scheduled within Social Report.
