Due to Facebook's API restrictions, third-party apps (such as Simplified) aren't allowed to directly publish posts to your Instagram personal account.

That means that, when you schedule an Instagram post to a personal account, Facebook don't allow Simplified (or any other third-party apps) to publish your posts.

In this case, when you schedule your post, you will receive an email reminding you it's time to publish your Instagram post.

Here's the step by step:

1 - Create a post and schedule it on your preferred time.

2 - On the time you scheduled your post, you will receive an email reminding you it's time to publish your Instagram post to your personal account. This email contains all your post info (media, caption, hashtags).

  • ! note: if you download and install the Simplified app, you will receive push notifications reminding you to publish your post.

3 - Copy and paste your post content from the email, and manually publish it to your Personal; Instagram account.

! note: When the system sends you the reminder email, the post will appear as published on your Calendar. But the post will not be published to your personal account unless you manually publish it.

💡 TIP: If you want Simplified to automatically publish your Instagram posts, consider switching your personal account to a business account! With an Instagram business account, your post will be automatically published at the scheduled time!
