Connecting a Business Instagram
If your Instagram account is linked to a Facebook Page, you will be asked to connect your account via Facebook's API.
Once you hit the 'Add Instagram Account' button, you will be asked to authorise Hopper HQ via Facebook and confirm the user you wish to login as.
Once you've confirmed that it is your personal Facebook account you're logged into, you'll be asked to select the accounts your wish to connect to Hopper HQ.
Remember: You can only make one connection at a time, although Facebook allow you to select multiple accounts.
After hitting 'Next', you'll be asked to confirm which Facebook Pages you wish to connect - this is required to allow us to pull in data for your Analytics and to enable your Grid Planner.
Please make sure you select pages that are linked to the Instagram business profiles you selected in the previous step.
After hitting 'Next', you'll be asked to confirm Hopper HQ's permissions. We recommend leaving these as the default settings to ensure there are no issues with your scheduled posts or analytics.
Once you hit 'Done' at the bottom of this view, you'll be taken to the page below and simply need to press 'OK' to go back to your Hopper HQ dashboard.
Once you're back in your Hopper HQ dashboard, you'll see all of the accounts you have made available to connect. Simply select the account you'd like to connect first and follow the additional steps that appear on your dashboard.
