All the magic happens right here. Creating a post is the core feature of Planable and we created the most simple way for you to preview and see how the content looks like before publishing any from the very first character. At the moment, creating a post is available through the desktop app only and our engineering team is currently working on implementing this in the mobile app.
There are many formats available at the moment depending on the social page.
- Facebook, you can add text, image, multiple images, URL, video, carousel, GIF and tag other pages
- Twitter, you can add text, image, multiple images, URL, video, GIFs and tag other accounts
- Linkedin, you can add text, images, URL, videos or GIFs
- Instagram, you can add images, videos, stories or multiple images.
To create a post, click on the "New Post" in the right top corner

Afterwards you can start creating a new post.

Select pages to create, schedule or publish the post
When creating a post you can select one page or multiple ones. It will create a separate post for all the selected pages. If you changed your mind and want to deselect a page - please hover on the page and click the "X" button in the right corner of the page, see the screenshot below.
Add an image
You can add an image or multiple images by selecting "Add an image or album" button, right here:
Also, you can drag & drop media files to upload one or multiple images like in the GIF below.
Add a GIF
We’ve teamed up with Giphy to bring GIFs right into your composer, making it easier to find them and dangerously abuse them. Search instantly for a GIF that expresses your brand, without leaving the platform, directly in Planable.
Add a video
You can add video title, tags that describe it and select the perfect thumbnail. No worries, you can also add a custom thumbnail that you crafted within the team!
Add a URL link
If you're looking to add a link, just copy & paste it when creating a post. Afterwards, you can delete it for Facebook & LinkedIn Post. If you want to add a URL link for Twitter you'll have to keep the link in the post.
Add a label
You can organize your posts with labels. With our labels, you can categorize your posts in a breeze. A single post can have multiple labels and can be filtered by whatever strikes your fancy – sales, product updates, promotion, you name it! You can add one or multiple labels in one post.
Add time & date
By clicking on the clock in the left bottom corner you can select a time & date to schedule your post. Attention, your post won't be published unless you click the schedule button. All the posts created in Planable are initially saved as a draft.
Add an emoji 😍
We know emojis make your social media fun and more engaging. You can add easily all kinds of emojis in a couple of clicks – type it, find your favorite one, search by keyword or select by category. We even have codes for the more advanced emoji lovers (check the cheat sheet here). Awesome, huh?
Add a hashtag
You can add a hashtag that you will see with a different color compared to the rest of the post.
Add targeting settings
For Facebook only, you can limit the audience of your posts by selected interests, age, location and language.
Tag a page
You can tag other Pages on Facebook and Twitter Accounts. You can tag a page by typing "@pagename" (exactly as it is on Facebook), our system will search through all the pages and find yours. Unfortunately, due to Facebook API restrictions we're unable to tag Facebook Profiles.
Twitter. It's exactly the same workflow for Twitter, type @[account name] and it will appear in a list below, here's a quick GIF to show you how it works.
Hide from clients
After adding your workspace users as Client and Team you can hide / unhide posts from your Clients, by clicking the eye icon.
