When connecting your Instagram account to Hopper HQ, there are two levels of connection: Instagram connection and Autopost Connection.
In this article, we'll guide you through the process of setting up Autopost Connection, which allows Hopper HQ to publish your Instagram posts automatically.
The first level of connection is the basic Instagram Connection.
This level enables Hopper HQ to retrieve your account information from Instagram but does not support autoposting.

How to set up Autopost Connection ✨
Once your Instagram account is a Business or Creator profile and connected to a Facebook page, please confirm this connection in Hopper HQ:
Go to your Hopper HQ Account Settings for the Instagram account you recently connected.
Under Autopost connection, click the 'Connect via Facebook' or 'Refresh Connection' button.
In the Facebook pop-up window, click 'Edit Settings' instead of continuing as the currently logged-in user (disable ad-blocker if no popup is shown).
Select all the Instagram business or creator accounts you want to connect with Hopper HQ (including previous and future accounts), then click 'Next'.
Select all the Facebook Pages you want to connect with Hopper HQ (including previous and future pages), then click 'Next'.
Confirm the permissions by clicking 'Done'.
Return to your Hopper HQ dashboard, and you should see the newly connected profile available for reconnection.
