How do I switch between direct publishing and manual publishing for Instagram?

You can choose whether you want all Instagram single-photo, carousels, and single-video posts to be published automatically from Gain or designate a manual publisher to publish them manually. The manual publisher will get reminders when it's time to publish a post. Switching from direct to manual publishing gives you the flexibility to add locations, tag, or mention people in your posts or stories directly in the Instagram app when posting. 

Switch to manual publishing on individual posts

To change the publishing mode for a single post, head to Publishing Mode right below your publish date. Select the option "Manual via Gain Notify" to get reminders when it's time to publish. Gain will send you a reminder when it's time to publish the post. 

Remember to set up a Manual Publisher and download the Gain Notify app to receive push notifications when it's time to publish on Instagram. To learn more, click here.

Switch to manual posting for an Instagram channel 

You can set manual publishing as a default publishing mode for your Instagram channel. Gain will send reminders to publish for every post scheduled to Instagram in your workspace. You'll still be able to change it for individual posts as you create them. 

1. Head to Workspace Settings > Social Channels > Select the Instagram channel. 

2. Then, select "Manual Publishing" under Publishing Mode Default
