Getting Started Guide

If you are getting started or just need a little refresher, the Later Getting Started Guide is just what you need. We’ll walk you through scheduling, publishing and all the key features of Later to make sure you get the most out of your account.

Why Later?

Later is the easiest and safest way for you and your team to schedule, publish and manage multiple accounts.  Best of all we have an entirely free plan.

As you are getting up to speed, here are the 2 most important things you need to know about Later:



1. Plan Your Week From Your Computer


Later helps you plan your entire week (or month) from your computer so you don’t need to think about Instagram all week. Upload your photos or videos from the computer to Later on the web, drag your post on your content calendar, edit the crop, and add your caption and hashtags

Here are some cool features of using Later on the Web:


2. Verify and publish your Instagram posts with the Later Mobile App


Important: Here at Later, we do not auto-post your scheduled content to Instagram as it goes against Instagram’s Terms of Use.

When the scheduled time comes, Later will send you a mobile notification to help you post to Instagram safely. Once you open the mobile notification you’ll be prompted to open the media in Instagram - we’ll pass the photo or video to Instagram so it is ready to post . We even copy your caption to your clipboard, so you just need to tap the caption area and hit paste.
