Visual Instagram Planner: Plan, Preview & Rearrange Your Grid

Your Instagram aesthetic is important. These days, it’s not enough to post live on Instagram and hope for the best when it comes to your grid – it needs to look creative and cohesive if you want to stand out among your competitors.

A new visual planning feature to preview your Instagram feed 📸

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to create the ultimate Instagram planning and scheduling tool. It allows you to:

  • Preview your Instagram feed
  • Drag and drop to rearrange your grid
  • Use the Grid Shift slider to see how your feed will look on a specific future date, or after your add more posts

What is Grid Shift?

Grid Shift is a slider that allows you to preview your Instagram feed on specific future dates. It also allows you to fast-forward and see how your existing grid would be impacted by up to two extra posts after your final post is scheduled, to ensure your lovingly-crafted design doesn’t break.
