Choose what format you’d like your Ripl to be downloaded in (Full HD, Standard HD, or Static Image). Note: some posts are video only, so you won't be able to choose the "static" option.

Step three: Connect your social media accounts

Click any of the “Connect” buttons next to a social media account to connect that account with your Ripl account.

Note: You can also connect social media accounts by going to “My Brand” > "Settings" > “Social Accounts” on the web app, or “My Business” > “Settings” > “Social Media Accounts” on the mobile app.

Step four: Schedule your Ripl post

Tapping "Schedule Post" will allow you to pick a date and time for your post to share. The final "Share" button should change to "Schedule" once you've successfully scheduled your post.

Instagram Note: Instagram does not allow apps to post videos on your behalf. If you schedule a post to go to Instagram, we will send you a notification at your scheduled time to remind you to complete the post. If you have notifications turned off for Ripl, you won't see this prompt! We copy the caption you entered in Ripl, so simply tap the notification to open Ripl, then tap "Launch Instagram" and you'll be taken directly to the posting screen in Instagram.

Step five: View or change your scheduled Ripl posts

  • Go to “My Posts” on the web app, or “My business” on the mobile app.

  • Click on “Schedule” on the navigation bar under your business name. Days with scheduled posts or saved Ripl creations will have dots.

  • Tap on the date that the post is scheduled for and scroll to the bottom of the calendar to tap on the post where you'll see the "Change" button above the post preview. Tapping on this button will allow for rescheduling the post or unscheduling it, which will move it to the Drafts section.
