You will then see your Instagram account(s) appear ready to be connected to your dashboard, as shown below:
Select the account you'd like to connect to Hopper HQ and you're ready to go - you should then be able to view all of your account's analytics ✨
If your Autopost function appears as 'Not Enabled', simply press the 'Enable' button (as shown below) and enter your Instagram account's password, then follow any steps to verify the account through the Instagram app.
We'll send you an email to let you know as soon as your account is set up and ready to go! 🎉
