How to tag user when scheduling an Instagram post
1. Click Publish to create a post. On the list of social profiles on the left, make sure that Instagram is selected.
2. Type your text and add in your media (video or image). On the image preview - click on any part of the image to tag a user.
3. Type the username of the public profile that you want to tag. Once done, click Tag user.
4. The tagged user should now appear on the image. Note that you may tag as many users as you'd like.
5. If you are scheduling a carousel post and you wish to tag more users, scroll through the image in the preview and repeat the process. You may also change the location of the tag by dragging it around the image.
6. Once you are done tagging a user, select a time to schedule the post and you should be all set!
