How do I Create a Group?
Later Groups help you manage access to your photos, videos, and Instagram accounts within Later. Now you can have multiple media libraries, so you don’t have to share your photos and videos with all your social profiles and team members.
Step 1: Create a Group
Create multiple groups to organize your media library by social profiles and team member access.
From Later on the web, go to your Calendar
At the bottom left corner of the menu click the Group Selector. This is your default group or Main Group.
Click Manage My Groups to go to the Social Profiles & Groups Admin page.
Next, click Create New Group at the top of the page and add a name to your group.
Finally, add a profile picture to your group to easily distinguish & toggle between groups.
Simply click EDIT beside the group’s name and click on the Group avatar to add a photo and Save.
Step 2: Add Social Profiles to your Group
Create a group to manage access to your photos and videos and separate media by social profile(s).
From the Social Profiles tab click Add Social Profile
This will give you two options:
- Connect a new social profile
- Move an existing social profile to this group
Choose whether you’d like to add a new social profile or transfer an existing social profile into your new group. Follow the steps provided.
IMPORTANT: When moving existing social profiles to a new group, only the scheduled posts will be copied over to the Group’s calendar. To move old media between groups you will need to Transfer the media over. Learn how
Step 3: Invite Team Members
Invite team members to collaborate in a group! Remember, your team members will only have access to the photos, videos and social profiles connected to the group(s) you invite them to.
