How do I use the Instagram Grid Planner?
You can use the Instagram Grid Planner to visualize your future posts on your Instagram Grid.
Note: This feature is available on Sprout’s Professional and Advanced Plans.
To see the Instagram Grid Planner, navigate to Publishing > Instagram Grid Planner. This view shows sent posts for the past 90 days and any pending, draft or scheduled posts.
Click on the three-dot overflow menu on any pending, draft or scheduled post to open publishing options.
You can also drag and drop pending, draft or scheduled posts to reschedule them.
Select Preview mode to view the grid without the publishing options and Sprout icons.
Why do I see placeholder images for some of my Sent/Published Posts?
Placeholder images typically appear if your post was deleted or your profile was disconnected.
Why are some of my upcoming Reels posts missing?
The Grid Planner ONLY show Reels that have been marked as shared to your profile feed. You can select Share Reel to your profile feed in the Publishing window to ensure they appear in this view.
Do Sent Reels show in the Instagram Grid Planner?
We don't expect Sent Reels to appear because Sprout can't determine if a Published Reel was shared to a Profile's feed or not. Because the differentiation between the two can't be made, Sent Reels are always filtered out of the grid view.
Where are my pinned posts?
Due to an API limitation, pinned posts do not appear in the Grid Preview.
