Push Notification Process for Instagram Posts

To publish certain types of Instagram posts, including images, videos, stories, reels, and GIFs, using eclincher, you need to follow the mobile push notification process. Here's how you can enable and use this feature:

Install the eclincher mobile app on your device and make sure you have the Instagram app installed as well.

The Push Notification Process:

When creating an Instagram post that requires push notification, you will see a button labeled "USE PUSH NOTIFICATION." Click this button to send the post to your mobile device via push notification. The button will be green when enabled, and you cannot disable this feature.

Once the scheduled time for the post arrives, it will be sent to your connected mobile device, and you will receive a notification.

If notifications are disabled on your device, open the eclincher app and go to the Instagram Notifications area. You will find the post there.

Look for the post in the app and click/tap on "Publish Now," then select "Post Now" to proceed.

This will open the Instagram app, and the images for your post will be transferred to your phone's gallery. Select the images and ensure that you are logged in to the correct Instagram account.

Copy the caption from eclincher by doing a LONG PRESS in the "Write a Caption" section in the Instagram app and then tapping "PASTE."

Finally, click "SHARE" to complete the post.

The push notification process simply transfers the post to your mobile device, as it is a limitation imposed by Instagram's API for third-party applications. However, single images, carousel posts, IG Reels, and video posts to Instagram Business accounts do not require this process and can be published directly.

You can still choose to use the push notification process for specific purposes, such as posting an IG Story or utilizing IG's image editor/filters.
