There are two ways in which you can schedule your posts: auto-posting and push notification posting. Instagram’s API currently does not allow all content to be automatically posted to Instagram via a scheduling platform. This guide will help you understand which posts Flick can post on your behalf directly to Instagram and which posts will need a little extra help from you manually.

Automatic Posting

Auto-posting means you can schedule a post to go live at a specific time, without you needing to post manually. Simply create your post in Flick, set the date and time for when you want the Instagram post to go live and Flick will do the rest! You’ll even get a notification to let you know your post has been successfully published.

Instagram & TikTok API's limit what can be automatically published. Currently, you’ll be able to post the following types of content automatically:

  • Single Image Posts

  • Reels

  • Carousel Posts
    Multi-image posts of up to 10 posts can be posted automatically.

  • TikToks

  • Facebook Posts

  • Facebook Video (Reels)

Notification Posting

Notification posting will allow you to create your posts from within Flick, but instead of the post being automatically published, we’ll send a notification to your mobile phone with a reminder to post. Tapping the notification will open up Flick’s mobile app, where you’ll be able to access the completed post that is ready to be copied into Instagram. This means your content, caption, hashtags, tags and everything else will be all in one place and ready to be published.

What content can be scheduled via Notification?

Currently, you can schedule all content to be posted via notifications. Some content can only be scheduled via notifications. Check out what you can currently post below:

  • Single image posts

  • Carousel Posts

  • Videos - Videos longer than 60 seconds can only be posted via Notification Posts.

  • Reels

  • Stories

  • TikToks

  • Facebook Posts

  • Facebook Video (Reels)
