Direct Publishing to Instagram

We are beyond ecstatic to announce Instagram Direct Publishing. The moment we’ve all been waiting for is here.

You can now schedule and publish your Instagram single image and video posts without any reminders from our mobile app. Notifications are a thing of the past.

A couple of things to keep in mind, Instagram Direct Publishing is available for: Feed posts: single image and video Instagram Business profiles (you can easily switch a personal page to a business page)

There’s a limit of 25 published posts per account within a 24-hour moving period All you have to do now is go to your Instagram page settings in Planable, click on the “Authorize” button and check the box for “Permission to publish”. When you connect a new page, a pop-up will automatically ask for the same permission. Stories and carousel posts will continue to be published through our mobile app.

Media Library support for Stories

We are happy to announce that Instagram Stories now fully supports assets added from Media Library. Simply drag & drop or add files from Media Library in your stories editor. Stories now support any video and image format.

Link Carousels with CTA

We're adding another popular format for Facebook Ads in Planable. You can now create URL Carousels with Call to Action buttons!

Here's how you can use carousel ads to highlight your business, product, or story:

  • Feature multiple products that link to different landing pages. Give customers more options and help raise your clickthrough rate.
  • Highlight multiple features of a single product. Show different product angles or details to better educate customers.
  • Tell a story. Use images in succession to illustrate a compelling narrative.
  • Explain a process. Walk people through how your business works step by step.
  • Sell the benefits. If your business is in the service industry, use images that show the benefits or results of becoming a customer.

Carousels with CTA can be also published as organic posts. To create carousels simply add a link to your post and on the generated thumbnail click "Create carousel".


Other improvements

  • Fixed an issue with thumbnails showing a blank grey image for some links.
  • Mobile apps now support Thumbnails with CTA and LinkedIn videos, please update the app to the latest version.

Emoji reactions for comments

We're excited to add a new feature which is both fun and useful: emoji reactions to comments. Now you don't need to send a comment to acknowledge the feedback, just select 👍 or ❤️. The whole modern emoji set is available and anyone can join the party 🥳. You can give reactions to comments using one (or more) emojis to express exactly how you're feeling.

Link thumbnails with CTA

We are delighted to announce that you can now create link thumbnails with a specific call to action button for your Facebook posts. Hover over your posts with a link thumbnail and select the desired call to action. You can also replace the title and description of the link, and the best part is that it's for any link, not just your verified websites! Link Thumbnails with CTA can be saved and used in Facebook Ads or published as organic posts.


Give it a try and let us know what you think.

Edit posts on mobile

We're excited to announce that you can now edit posts on the go with our Planable Mobile Apps. Upgrade your app to the latest version and find the edit button in the options menu. Give it a try and let us know what you think!


Other improvements:

  • Fixed an issue with publishing grouped posts that include an Instagram post.
  • Fixed an issue with link previews not showing for Facebook groups.
  • Grouped posts are now properly displayed in List view.
  • Link Carousels are not supported for Facebook groups, so we've removed it from our composer to avoid confusion.
