Publish directly to Instagram via Buffer

CleanShot 2020-10-21 at 12.31.56@2x.png

We've just added a new integration for your Instagram business pages to finally make Instagram scheduling simple. This enables you to publish posts directly. No more mobile push notifications in the middle of the night.

Enable direct publishing — head over to your page settings.

⚠️ Note that direct publishing via Buffer works only with image feed posts. Other formats are coming soon. Stories, posts with multiple images, or videos can be published as usual via mobile app and push notifications.

More delightful scheduling and publishing experience

We have redesigned the scheduling and publishing experience to make it more intuitive and properly show the various steps in the publishing process.

  • You can now see when a post is in the publishing process so you don't accidentally press "publish" twice.
  • In feed view, it's now easier to select other publishing options from a dropdown menu.
  • We've updated Facebook, LinkedIn icons, and colors so they match their new branding.
  • If you have auto-scheduling enabled you can now revoke the approval and it will be unscheduled.

Other improvements

  • Fixed broken links in request approval email notifications.
  • Fixed an issue with connecting some types of Facebook pages.
  • Close icon was missing when previewing post assets, we've added it back.
  • Emoji picker was misbehaving on certain types of posts, we've adjusted it.
  • Fixed an issue with duplicate time slots showing in the post time picker.

Choose Instagram publisher

You can now set a designated team member to receive notifications for publishing posts on Instagram. You can set a default publisher for each profile or Instagram business page or pick a publisher when scheduling a post.

By default, the publisher is chosen automatically to whoever is scheduling or approving the post. Check your page settings to enable a default publisher.

Media Library

You can now keep all your brand creatives in your workspace Media Library. Simply drag & drop your files in the Media library and then you (or team members) can later use the assets in posts.

You can store as many files as you need, images, gifs or videos. Uploaded files in posts are automatically copied to the media library.

Share posts with a link

You can now easily share your content with external collaborators with a special link. No sign-in is required to view content and leave feedback. Existing comments and labels will also be visible to guests.

You can easily disable the link if you no longer want to share the post.

Flexible approval options

We've re-designed the workspace approvals options to give you more flexibility and accommodate any approval flow, starting from disabling approvals completely to a complex multi-step process.

We've also added a new option to lock content editing after approval, to prevent further intentional and unintentional alterations before publishing.

You can also now, manually notify approvers when content is ready to be reviewed, just hover on the approval button and choose who you want to notify.

Search

You can now search for posts, workspaces, comments, pages easier and navigate faster within Planable. You can locate the search functionality on the top left corner of the app from anywhere you are located and quickly jump where needed. Give it a try and let us know what you think! 🤗

Invite collaborators with a link

We’ve refined our team management menus and added a new option to invite collaborators via a short link. If you need to invite many people to a workspace, instead of inviting them one at a time, create a link that will grant access (at the specified permission level and membership) to anyone who opens the link.

Note: You will need to have at least administrator permission in the workspace in order to create an invite link—if you are an editor, approver, guest, you cannot create an invite link.)

Create posts on mobile

We are excited to announce that you can now create posts from the mobile app! Just tap on the compose button on your page, add a graphic and some text. For now you can create a single image and video posts, other content formats like stories and posts with multiple images are coming soon. Stay tuned! 🤗

View unpublished posts

You can now see unpublished posts on mobile in a dedicated menu to quickly publish posts if you missed your notifications. Don't forget to update your mobile app 😉 Unpublished-posts.png

Workspace notification settings

You can now set your notification preferences per workspace, rather than the entire account. We've simplified the notification settings experience, now you can choose to get notified about post status updates (approvals, publishing), new posts added or conversations. You can also unsubscribe your team members or clients to spare their inbox if needed.
