Setting Up Mobile Notifications

Publishing to Instagram needs to be done on a mobile app as Instagram requires you to post through their app. Later sends you a mobile push notification at the time you scheduled the post on your mobile (iOS or Android) phone or tablet and opens the post in Instagram ready for you to post.

Here’s how to enable mobile notifications on your mobile device, tablet, and iPad so you can start publishing your scheduled content.

Setting up notifications on iOS

Here’s how to set up Apple  iOS push notifications on your mobile device

To enable Later mobile notifications on your iPhone:

  1. Go to your phone Settings
  2. Go to Notification Settings
  3. Find the Later icon
  4. Select the notifications you’d like to receive

IMPORTANT: If you're an IOS user you may want to add the notifications as Alerts. Banners flash and then disappear quickly so you may miss your notification.
