AutoSchedule works for scheduling photos and videos to Facebook and Twitter, too!

To AutoSchedule your Instagram posts, you’ll want to start by creating your Instagram queue on the “weekly” tab of Later’s content calendar. To create your queue, simply double-click on the timeslot that you’d like to add, and a grey box will appear. To adjust your time, just drag the timeslot to the desired time.

Now that you’ve created a queue of your personal best times to post, you’re all ready to AutoSchedule Instagram posts! Select multiple photos or videos from your media library, and just drag and drop them at the top of your calendar to AutoSchedule. It’s that easy!
