To connect and authorize your social profiles, go to Settings > Social Networks.

Then follow the instructions below.

Connecting social profiles

You can connect and add the following social profiles to Post Planner:

  • Facebook pages and groups (that you admin)

  • Instagram business accounts (that are linked to your connected FB pages)

  • LinkedIn profile and pages (that you admin)

  • Pinterest profiles

  • Twitter profiles

To connect any of these profiles, simply click the "CONNECT" button on the right side of the network row:

Once you click "CONNECT", please accept/allow all permissions that Post Planner asks for. We request the minimum permissions we need to make the app work for you.

Here are specific instructions for connecting each network:

Facebook

  • Click green "CONNECT" on Facebook row

  • Accept/allow ALL permissions

  • Post Planner will pull in all the FB pages and groups that your connected profile is an admin of (but not your personal profile — FB doesn't allow 3rd party apps to post to personal profiles)

  • At this time, you can only connect a single profile (connecting multiple FB profiles will be possible in July 2021)

  • NOTE: you must explicitly add the Post Planner app to your groups

Instagram

Linkedin

  • Click green "CONNECT" on LinkedIn row

  • This will connect to the LinkedIn account you are logged in to on the same browser — and will ask you to re-enter your login info

Connecting additional social profiles

Here's what the network rows will look like once you've connected at least one profile on each network:
