  • Quick Scheduling does not mean automatically posting to Instagram.
  • Quick Scheduling is only available for Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
  • When Quick Scheduling Instagram posts, posts will default to Notification posts due to Instagram limitations. 
  • Quick Schedule can be set up on the web and mobile apps.

How Quick Scheduling Works

Quick Scheduling lets you create recurring weekly time slots for scheduling your content. Simply drag and drop your media to the top of your calendar to bulk schedule multiple posts at once!

  • Only one post can be scheduled in a single time slot.
  • All Quick Schedule Instagram posts will be scheduled as Notification posts.
  • If you add, remove, or change time slots in your Calendar, updates to the time slots will be reflected in the following weeks.
  • If you update a time slot that has a scheduled post in it, the scheduled post’s date and time won’t be updated; only the time slot itself will be updated. 
  • You can use your Calendar or Visual Instagram Planner to Quick Schedule your Instagram posts. 

Creating Your Weekly Schedule

Before you can Quick Schedule your posts, you need to create your weekly schedule.

  1. In Later on the web, go to your Calendar.
  2. Make sure you’re in the single profile you want to set up Quick Schedule for. 
  3. Double-click on any time slot in your Calendar to open the Quick Schedule wizard. 
  4. Click Get Started.
  5. Select the days and times for up to 7 Quick Schedule time slots to start.
  6. Click Next and Finish.

Note: The Quick Schedule wizard will only pop up if you don't have any Quick Schedule time slots created. To add, remove, or a change a time slot, see how to change your Quick Schedule time slots.

Quick Schedule isn’t available for multi-profile scheduling.

Tip: Choose your Quick Schedule time slots based on your Best Time to Post.

Quick Scheduling Your Posts

Once you’ve created your Quick Schedule, you can start scheduling your posts.

  1. In your Calendar’s side library, select your media in the order you want them to be scheduled.
  2. Click Quick Schedule at the bottom or drag and drop your media onto the top of your Calendar.
  3. Your posts are now Quick Scheduled.
  4. Go into each post in your Calendar to add captions. You can also change Instagram Notification posts to Auto Publish, if enabled.  

Note: Quick Schedule Instagram posts can’t be defaulted to Auto Publish due to Instagram limitations. 

Tip: Save time by writing your captions in your media’s Notes before scheduling. The text will be automatically copied to your post’s caption, so your content is ready to publish.
