Tagging users on Instagram is a great way to boost the engagement of your posts. You can use tags to grab the attention of influential accounts, forge relationships with customers and followers, or simply include your friends and family in meaningful Posts.

When using Auto Post with Tailwind for Instagram, you can schedule images with user tags included! You can add up to 20 users per post. 

Please note that user and location tagging work for single-photo posts scheduled with Auto Post only.

Here’s how to tag users on Instagram with Tailwind auto-post:

  1. Create your draft post in Tailwind as usual.

  2. Make sure your post method is set to auto-post

  3. Hover over the thumbnail of the photo in the quick scheduler

  4. Click the "Tag" button in the lower right-hand corner of the thumbnail

  5. Click anywhere on the photo where you'd like the tag to appear

  6. Type in the full handle of the user

  7. Click "Save"

Your post will now publish with user tags added to your photo, and tagged users will receive a notification on Instagram once your post publishes!

To remove a tag from a draft post, simply click the grey X to the right of the username.
