With Later, you can choose to have your posts scheduled for Instagram publish automatically or you manually publish it through a notification sent to you at the time you scheduled it. 

Note: Some posts on Later cannot be auto published, posts for personal Instagram profiles, video posts, and carousel posts need to be manually published through a notification. 

Here are the steps to manually publish a post to Instagram from a notification sent from Later:

  1. Open the  mobile notification sent from Later to the mobile device you setup with the Later mobile app
  2. Click "Open the Post in Instagram"
    Note: Make sure to be logged into the right Instagram account
  3. Adjust your photo in Instagram as you see fit
  4. Hit Next, add a filter, or edit your post
  5. Important: Paste in the caption - Later automatically copied the caption to your clipboard for you, 
  6. Hit Publish in Instagram. Done!

If your post has past its scheduled time of publishing or you did not get a notification, you can find your post in the "Ready Posts" section of the mobile app. 

To publish a ready post:

  1. Select a post and hit Post Now
  2. Click "Open the Post in Instagram".
    Note: Make sure to be logged into the right Instagram account
  3. Adjust your photo as you see fit in Instagram
  4. Hit Next, add a filter, or edit your post
  5. Important: Paste in the caption - Later automatically copied the caption to your clipboard for you, 
  6. Hit Publish in Instagram. Done!
