There are 2 ways to publish stories:

  1. Directly to Instagram

  2. Through notifications on our mobile app

Choose how you want to publish

To choose how to publish your stories, you need to go to your page settings in Planable and enable or disable direct publishing for stories.

Publishing directly

For Instagram business accounts that are linked to Facebook pages, stories can be published automatically. When adding a page in Planable, publishing stories automatically will be disabled, so make sure to enable it from the page settings as shown above.

Once you've scheduled your story it will be published directly on your Instagram page at the chosen date & time.

Publishing through the mobile app

For all other types of Instagram accounts, or if you prefer to make some last edits from Instagram, you can publish using the Planable mobile app.

After you schedule your story, when it's time to publish you'll receive a notification on your mobile device (download the apps here) to publish the post, then you're redirected to the Instagram account and you'll have to select "Story", like in the GIF below.

The dimensions for Instagram Stories are 1080 pixels wide by 1920 pixels tall (1080 x 1920, or 1080p resolution). Your Instagram Story size should have an aspect ratio of 9:16. The minimum width is 500 pixels, the maximum video length is 15 seconds, and the accepted video file types are MP4, MOV, or GIF.
