Instagram Stories help you capture and share all of the exciting and special moments throughout your day. 😊

Note: Please ensure you have the latest version of our Tailwind: Instagram Planner for posting Stories!

Let’s get started with how to schedule Instagram Stories with Tailwind.

You can upload Stories from your Homepage or from your Drafts tab.

Click Upload Media, select the Instagram account you'd like to publish your Stories to, and click Stories:

Drag and drop your images or click to browse the files on your computer and click Confirm to upload:

Once you've selected your image, you'll be able to customize your Stories post by adding a caption, hashtags, or emojis just like you would on a normal post! Choose the time you'd like a reminder to post your story, and then schedule it:

Note: Stories can only be scheduled with the Push Notification method and aren't able to use Auto Post.

You can see your scheduled stories in your schedule on the Homepage. If you want to, you can change the time, notes, or hashtags for a scheduled story by clicking the post and selecting the pencil icon:

Tip: Make sure you have the Tailwind: Instagram Planner mobile app downloaded so you can post your Stories!

When it's time to post your story, you'll get a notification on your mobile device. Tap the notification to open the post in the Tailwind app.

Tap Post Now and then select Story when the Instagram app opens.

Your notes and hashtags will be copied to your clipboard! Then you can paste them onto your story and add any stickers or other effects.

Remember: Instagram Stories disappear after 24 hours! Try to schedule 1 or more per day to stay active.
