How to create a Regular Instagram post

1. Log into Flowbox and go to 'Publish' in the main menu.

2. In the left-hand menu, click on 'Schedule' or 'Content'.

3. Click on the blue 'Create Post' button.

4. In the modal box, choose which Instagram account that you'd like to publish your post on. NOTE: You can only select one account.

5. Select the post type 'Regular' and click on the blue 'Next' button in the lower right-hand corner.

6. Tab: 'Content'

  • Start by clicking on 'Add media' to select what content from the Library that you would like to publish. The media object type could either be an image, or a video, or both types. You can select more than one object (carousel).

  • Continue by adding your preferred caption to the 'Caption' textbox, preferred location to 'Preferred Location' (Optional), and notes to 'Notes'.

  • When you're done, click on the blue 'Next' button.

7. Tab: 'Schedule'

  • Select publish date and time in the date- and time picker.

  • Select the timezone.

  • When you're done, click on the blue 'Next' button.

8. Tab: 'Publisher'

  • Select who's the publisher in the dropdown.

  • Select which notification channel you want to receive a notification when it's time to publish the post. You're able to select more than one notification channels.

  • If you want the post approved by a colleague, switch the 'Send for Approval' toggle on.

  • When you're done, click on the blue 'Next' button.

9. Tab: 'Prepare'

  • Add products to the post by searching/scrolling in the field 'Products'.

  • Add tags to the post by searching or create a tag in the field 'Tags'.

  • When you're done, click on the blue 'Schedule' button.

By preparing your posts at this stage, you will save time later as products and tags will automatically be added when the post is later collected by any of your own sources in Flowbox. NOTE: This can take 5-10 minutes after a post has been published to Instagram.

10. Your post is now scheduled and you will receive a notification on the selected notification channel when it's time to publish your post.
