Pros: Planable is the first social media management system that flawlessly streamlines the creation, editing and approval process from the creative agency to the client & then to the public.

When you manage several brands, each with a presence in several networks, keeping everything up to date can be a daily struggle. What did I forget? Did we get approval on that post we need today? Did we have any feedback we did not include?

Planable turned this "juggling of too many balls" turned into a simple process. The intuitive interface and the fact that posts look exactly like they will on the target social network makes it easy for us to create content and for clients to offer feedback through comments and approve. All in one place, with a few clicks, in an easy-to-understand process. The most surprising bit? I've actually had a client call me to ask "hey, why aren't we using Planable anymore?", after getting a proposal by email from a colleague. It was the first time *ever* I saw a client being invested in a system - showing it works great from their end, too.

Other PROs:

- Very quick and reliable support.

- Rapid development, with new features added all the time (just in the last months, we got the option to use Planable for personal profiles, Wordpress soon), and the public roadmap where users' suggestions are prioritised is a great idea.

- The "calendar view" - showing one or multiple managed accounts - is an excellent tool for a "birds-eye view" at any given moment.

Cons: Planable is NOT for you if you're looking for a solution for analytics and reports. This is a product that helps you create, approve and publish, rather than measure, analyse or report.

Overall: Much simpler creation, editing and approval process for social media content.

Clear way to see how the post will look on the target social network.

Easy way for client to offer feedback so you have more time for other work.

Helpful platform that I trust will keep getting better

Pros: Planable gives us the ability to collaborate on social media posts in real-time in a visual format that is a very close approximation of what the published posts will look like all at a price point that works for our homegrown team.

As a PR professional, I manage social media accounts for multiple clients, each with a presence in multiple social media channels. Planable makes it easy to manage work spaces and collaborators for my full client roster.

On top of that, Planable's real-time customer support, powered by Intercom, has been truly excellent. My questions are always answered quickly, and I feel like my feature requests and feedback are actually heard by the people that matter instead of lost in a vacuum, as happens with so many other companies.

Planable adds new features all the time, so the experience just keeps getting better and better. I fully trust that the value this product brings to my team will continue to grow.

Cons: Planable is a young product, so it's not flawless. The good news is that the Planable team is always pushing out updates to fix bugs and add features. My minor quibbles as of today are as follows:

1) Overall, the web-based UI is pretty stable, but it has been known to hang from time to time, requiring not just a reload of the browser window, but a full browser restart.

2) The visual mock-ups of each social post are close to the real-thing, but they are not perfect. For example, we try very hard to keep LinkedIn posts to three lines of copy so they don't get truncated with a "...Read More" link. I can use Planable as a general guide, but the text in the mocked-up post doesn't wrap at EXACTLY the same points as the real-life post on LinkedIn.

3) Planable supports more than social media drafting and approving it also lets users schedule posts for automated publishing, which is AWESOME, especially for Twitter and Facebook. However, at this time, I don't feel comfortable using automated posting for LinkedIn because Planable doesn't support "mentions" of LinkedIn companies and profiles. So I use Planable to draft and approve LinkedIn posts, but then I post them manually on the LinkedIn website. [In all fairness, this is not a Planable shortcoming per se, but rather a function of LinkedIn's API not providing the information third-parties need to live-link mentions. However, I've heard of at least one competitor that claims to have this capability...]

Pros: Planeable is a really good tool for planing the content for social media. We love the workspace, and team collaboration. Its amazing if you need 2 steps process, creation and aprobe

This is really usefull for agency or big publishers who need to post new freash daily content.

At the moment we use in our magazine for facebook groups, so we schedule questions, and create daily engagement topics

I really like the calendar view and the feedview. Love the drag and drop feature!! Amazing!

Interface is really fast!! (super important)

They support linkedin and instagram!

Also they work really fast adding new features to improve the product, so im really glad about that.

Cons: Lets be trully honest, they need to step up there game, because there is too many social tools.

They first problem they have is not every content you publish is new, so you need to have a evergreen content for filling.

Or sometime you need to republish post because they work. The good news i think they are working on something like that

Also i think, they can make a difference if they offer media library, or a way to have all your post so you can complete your calendar without adding the content again

My biggest cons are 2

- No bulk import or CSV import (so if you wanna import excell)

-They not support facebook stories and instagram stories. (also most of the tool dont supported yet)

They can make a huge difference because there is where you need to post daily new fresh content and Stories is the most working "feature" on social media now.

Overall: Amazing tool for planining and aprobe fresh content. We use it on facebook group!!

It's REALLY easy to get started with Planable, I love flexibility of the workspaces.

Pros: I LOVE how easy it is to use the workspaces and the flexibility to create multiple profiles within a workspace. I have different social media profiles specific to my own projects, one set is for travel one set is for remote work, another is about workplace wellness. I created my workspace with my different projects and have the ability to create a post to publish on different channels.

I appreciate the calendar view as well. There's a lot of updates on new features and Instagram publishing is in the works.

I use Hootsuite, CoScheduler, TweetDeck and for the simplicity of posting and the visual of the workspace I really like using Planable.io.

Cons: Right now there's no reporting analytics to look at so I go back to my regular tools or straight to Twitter/Facebook to look at results.

I've run into some glitches posting after moving timezones. I discovered you can actually set a timezone specific to your workspace which is great. That said, I've noticed I've got to double check some posts to make sure they post and I'm not sure what's going on. I just opened a ticket about it. if I schedule a post to publish on a future day and time, it's posting. I don't get a warning about a failed a post.

Pros: very good application easy to use with a beautiful interface and very comfortable.

Planable is ideal for managing social networks where it shows us an excellent calendar view to manage these.

It offers us a large amount of tools where we can choose what to publish and when to do it, it gives us a preview of how the publications will look in a way to give more confidence and allows us to collect information as comments from the publications.

Cons: The publication process can be complicated when you start using Planable. since an approval process is required for the publications and it can seem a tedious process to us sometimes.

Vendor Response

by Planable on May 24, 2018

Hey, Brayan!

Appreciate your feedback. I'm glad Planable is useful for you.

I wanted to mention that our approval system is not mandatory, it's not required for the publications to be scheduled / published at the moment. We consider implementing this in the future. Currently, it's a process that you can use to improve your collaboration and workflow. I hope this helps.

If you have any other questions, please let us know!

Pros: - Love the calendar view. I can see what's getting posted, where it's being posted, and when it's getting posted

- I was able to onboard my VA quickly and she started posting new content right away

- The review process for new social posts is so much better now with Planable. I can make edits, provide suggestions to my VA, and feel confident that the content I want to be posted is posted

- Regular updates! I've seen at least 3 new updates in the last month.

- Product development roadmap looks promising and developers are open to new ideas and suggestions :)

Cons: - Tagging features a still a little buggy and causes the site to lag or not load the correct Facebook page

- Evergreen posting not available...yet (it's coming soon)

- No way to prevent a scheduled post from being published if it is not approved

- I always forget to set a scheduled time because time scheduling feature is located below the calendar when scheduling the date --> would like to see these separated

Pros: Compared with similar platforms, Planable is relatively new. The feature is quite simple. However, I see this tool is quite promising and impressive so first try it.

The interface is simple and easy to use, making it suitable for all circles. We can manage multiple brands in their respective places in the workspace so that it is more focused. Interfaces are designed in such a way to fit in when posted on social media, very helpful. Calendar View feature also makes it easier to create a more organized content plan.

Cons: As a new tool, its features are still very simple. It's really simple when compared to other platforms. There are some important features that I expect here but not yet available, so it is not yet possible to use as the main tool of social media management. Among others are:

- customizable analytics reports as needed.

- wider social media support, especially Pinterest and Google+

- Direct Instagram post

- Automation

- Multi layer approval

- Mobile apps

The good news, they provide a Roadmap menu that lets us know what features are being developed. Unfortunately, we can not really know when the feature will be implemented.

Overall: Ease in the management of social media, where we can know how it looks exactly before it is actually published to each social media service. Availability of Roadmap menu to find out what features are being developed.

Pros: + Eases approval/team collab workflow

+ Eases Social Media Content Calendar workflow

These two are the key points for me.

Planable makes it very easy for me to a. approve colleagues' social media posts and b. provide instant feedback using two simple squeeze boxes per post. Onboard your team in 15' and boom you're good to go.

Or just use the calendar view to map out your content for the next x amount of time. A handy feature, albeit present in other similar tools by now.

Still, it's my no.1 choice for Social Media teams especially if you run a team in different time zones or use independent contractors that need a bit of guidance.

Cons: I've encountered a couple of bugs - had to reload the page and re- enter my post at some point - but definitely nothing that I haven't witnessed firsthand before via hootsuite and -oh boy- buffer. Best option money can buy IMHO, in this category of tools

Overall: ease of mind :-)

Pros: I have multiple businesses that I maintain social media for. With planable, I can set up each one in my account (a workspace is one set of social media accounts). So business A is 1 workspace with its own Facebook and Twitter feed. Business B is another workspace. You can have team members who are set up to write posts but they won't be published till they are approved. You see exactly how the post will look before its ever published.

Cons: Limited to Facebook (pages , groups & personal), Twitter and Linkedin posting. Instagram posting is coming (via an app) but hasn't arrived yet because of Instagram app review freeze. Would love to see more social media options available.

Overall: I don't miss Hootsuite. I was fortunate to get the AppSumo deal of lifetime of Premium membership. I like the interface over Hootsuite, it seems cleaner and more modern. The multiple views that you can see your scheduled posts is very handy. If you are looking to move away from Hootsuite, you might give this one a try.

Pros: It's easy to use and it works.

It's dead simple, which is exactly what I wanted because while I love to be on social media, creating content and managing it can be a bit of a hassle. This helps me, and my team get organized and have posts run automatically.

Also, I really like the feature of having separate accounts. Though we are not a SM management agency, can see this being a giant win for those that do offer that service.

Cons: Not a lot of bad things about the app itself. I had a bit of a rocky start getting set up with all of our accounts, but I started pretty early on in their development. Since the initial on boarding, I haven't experienced anything a foul.

Overall: Overall my experience has been positive and would recommend this if you are a small company that wants to stream line your SM.

Cons: There is no con in the platform but I had some issues due to the changes made in Facebook, Other than that. I am satisfied by using this platform.

Pros: As a newbie when it comes to this kind of software, I just loved the way it is structured to help the user and make posting so simple. I plan my posts on social media in an uncomplicated and easy way, without having to navigate through a loot of different pages. It's all in one place. Another thing I have to stress out, is that the support team is great. The few questions I had were answered in a matter of hours, others just in minutes, and I got the answers I needed. I really recommend it!

Cons: Actually I loved it because of its simplicity. Maybe others will say that it lacks some functionalities that other more sophisticated programs have, but for users like myself, this is the one I would use.

Overall: It's a time saver for me. With just a few clicks, I can plan posts for several months ahead of time, not having to worry about them any more.

Pros: Being able to showcase our posts to our clients in a secure portal prior to launching. Always improving the platform with calendars, additional account links, etc. Yeah, great.

Cons: Sometimes the LinkedIn links don't work brilliantly, but it's new and we'll give them time to make it work.

Overall: Giving clients access to our posts prior to publishing. Creating a content calendar that our clients can see and comment against. Linking to many different social accounts at the same time and creating posts once for many platforms.

Planable improved our social media planning, in turn, leading to better engagement across platforms.

Pros: My team loves the capability to be able to view posts before they are published to the world. The capability for multiple team members to edit the posts also saves us plenty of time. Additionally, being able to view the posts in a calendar view helps with organization and content planning.

Cons: The only con we saw with Planable was the inability to share with clients who don't have a Planable account. We want to be able to share content with users who don't have a Planable account so that they can still edit. While making clients create an account to allow them to edit content isn't the end of the world, it is an additional step they have to take to access their content. We saw Planable is working on this, and that's what set this content site apart from the rest.

Overall: Planable helped with virtually all aspects of of social media content development. The organizational structure (calendar view, timeline view, etc.) helped during the planning process. We could allocate what type of content we needed throughout the month and quarter. Similarly, the ability to view social media posts helped with the visual and textual design of posts. Finally, being able to edit each other's posts was a huge time saver. We were able to add and edit posts at our own pace.

Pros: I would say what I liked the most about Planable was the look and feel as well as the ease of use. No other tool matches Planable in how slick, organized and aesthetically-pleasing it is.

Giving and receiving comments couldn't be easier, and you can clearly see the feedback given on every post.

I also liked how the platforms are separated by tabs in order not to confuse things up and also to keep the posts organized.

Their customer care team is very helpful and highly responsive, which is something you always need when subscribing to a tool.

Cons: Even though it's great in terms of look and feel and organization, the same can't be said about the features. Especially because Planable carry a similar price tag of other tools which have a lot more features.

Calendar view, asset library, a space for ideas and an app are among the many features that the tool needs to have before asking users for that price.

However, the team seems to be open to ideas and they also want to apply all the features that could help the users more in the near future so I'll say that I'll definitely be considering Planable again once these features are there.

Pros: I have a couple of clients I create and post social media content for and Planable makes it easy for me to create the posts and have my clients see what it will look like on the platform it will be posting to, view it in either a list or calendar view and approve it right there (no more having to go between spreadsheets and image files!)

I can post onto social media platforms right from Planable or just use Planable as a way to track what's been approved and what I've published. My clients can leave comments if they want changes made and it's not something that requires a lot of training or complicated instructions to start using.

Cons: My only frustration is that if I don't create posts in date order, there seems to be no way to rearrange them in the list view to be in date order. Honestly, though, that's a very minor thing.

Overall: It makes sharing potential social media posts and getting them approved (while allowing for comments and editing) really simple. It's user-friendly, doesn't take a lot of time to show someone how to use and keeps from having to use spreadsheets and image files and having to GUESS how something will look when it's posted.

Pros: I was looking for a solution to review the remote team's social posting but one that would give me the full essence of what those posting would look and voila, Planable to the rescue. Beat Hootsuite, Buffer and others to the selection.

It gives me an overall calendar view of the planned and posted social postings, authority to approve and edit social postings. When you schedule a posting with images, even if they are website image cards, you get to see exactly how that would look like in the correspondent social channel.

As we have a distributed social media management team across timezones, this has made my job as marketing manager of that team and its activities on social media ever so simple. Simply amazing

Cons: `

Pros: I like that the app was easy to set up and very easy to understand. I have a total of 5 team members and everyone was on board right away and everything has run smoothly. I've had no bug problems with the app and I'm glad they wait until a feature is ready before releasing it!

Cons: Waiting for more platforms to be included, but to their credit, Planable have been adding platforms quickly. More importantly, they don't release anything buggy or broken!

Overall: Planable gives me all of my team members and all of the social media accounts we need to track, analyze and plan, in one place! It does exactly what it says it will and is a very solid app. I'm very grateful for the simplicity and ease of use of the app, training is a breeze. Team members spend our time on the clients instead of on trying to figure out how to use the app.

It's really easy to use but at this point lack of some features for clients.

Pros: It's really easy to use. Looks exactly like the media that is used for e.g. Facebook NewsFeed. For clients, Plannable is very great for a big overview - thanks to its Calendar view. Bigger teams can easily cooperate right in the app. Also, the pipeline and the whole communication from the Plannable side is excellent.

Cons: At this point, it lacks some of the features great for planning ahead e.g. notes (for keeping your ideas alive). Also, it should have some separated views only for teams and other ones for clients - it would help teams to talk about their ideas more freely. But the pipeline looks very good and this features should come sooner than later.

Overall: Clients love us even more for the very clear and easy to use overview of their social media communication.

Pros:

It's very easy to use. The UI is pretty straightforward & very visual, as you just click on text to edit it and the pictures have little gears to edit as well. It also captures pictures that come with links.

You can change views for calendar based (which I preferred as it kept things pretty simple) or feed based. And it will visually show you what posts are upcoming as well as allow you to pick a day and add your post.

Cons: I didn't like the limited functionality - it doesn't include stats or anything of that nature so it's basically just an interactive social media calendar.

It's pretty buggy - sometimes posts don't like to go in properly or they disappear at random.

Overall: It's visual which makes it pretty simple and very quick to set up.

Pros: Very good utility and it's easy to use. Nice, minimalist features. Updates very often and never crashed or malfunctioned.

Cons: It used to allow you to have more than one account, and more pages. I guess it was a feature that was in the beginning and now you have to pay. But I'm still satisfied and if I ever need more than one account, I would definitely pay.

Overall: I was able to engage more easily on social media, and post more often than I used to because I could organize my posts in one. It offers updates and it's very well made, it's easy to use and I never had a technical problem.

I like it a lot and I will continue using it!

Pros: This is a great tool if you need to align your ideas for social media with your clients. It simply makes storytelling easier and better synchronized.

It helps you can schedule posts and comes in handy with multiuser feature. To have a comprehensive strategy for social media and brand management never was so fun and effective. Since the interaction with your clients is there all the time, the storytelling is empowered. Consistency in online presence is key nowadays, and Planable helps you achieve that.

You can create teams for every client or brand, have everything (about every social media) visually organized and everyone (team members and clients) can comment and suggest about every detail before any post is published. That is great!

Cons: The whole process about scheduling and posting gets a little complicated at time. It would benefit with a little UX shake.

I really appreciate your review. We've been improving our scheduling process over the past few weeks and I'd really appreciate if you share your feedback after our latest updates.

Planable has been a saviour and suddenly opened more streams of revenue for us.

Pros: Visual appearance and Collaboration. This helps us to see the complete month timeline in a single scroll and the collaboration allows us to take inputs from all the teams. Since the clients are added as approvers, that allows us to take an easy approval from them and thus anything after the approval is not on the head of the design team which helps to have the right person accountable in case of any issue.

Cons: Nothing in particular, but is we could pull the comments as well from the feeds and reply them from here itself, that would be a huge plus.

Overall: Helps us to streamline the management of Social profiles. The new feature which now allows us to also add individual profiles in the app is so much killer that we can even pay more for the same.

Pros: I really love the ability to see the post exactly the way it will appear on the social media. Also, the comments section next to the post is excellent when you work on a team and have to interact with the designer and the copy to approve the post. Another PROS feature is that you can upload albums and with other software that is not possible.

Cons: They have to do some changes in the layout of the workspace, because if you have a lot of pages, it can be difficult to see them all. Also, it lacks some analytics and some other features, but Planable is growing and I am sure they will add a lot of new features.

Overall: The ability to see the post exactly as it will be posted.

The ability to comment next to the post, perfect when you work on a team.

Pros: Planable has really streamlines our team's communications when it comes to scheduling and approving social media posts. First, we are a decentralized team and everyone is all over the globe. Planable helps us schedule posts without logging and in and out of the social accounts all of the time and dealing with pesky verification codes when a different team member logs in. Secondly, when we are training newbies, we are able to use the handy-dandy approval mechanism to ensure all social posts meet our client standards. Planable is a game changer.

Cons: The only thing I wish was different about Planable is that I wish it had Instagram publication options. I know they're working on it, though!

Pros: Since we start using Planable in our agency, our workflow had become more fluent and easy to manage. No more google sheet to use, no more sending files and reviews. Well, as a CMO, it makes my job easier, and now I have more time to spend on more important things.

Cons: Sometimes when I need to delete a picture and upload a new one for a specific post, i spend over 10 minutes to work it out. It's a recurrent bug in the app. And sometimes, even when I set a thumbnail picture for my article to publish, it won't show any picture when published on facebook.

Overall: I'm saving more time for more important things to do. It makes our team work more efficient and we now we have a full vision about all our social media.

Finally, a platform that can handle full team collaboration and publishing!

Pros: By far the best thing about this software is that it eliminates the need for using google docs, spreadsheets or emails to collaborate with team members and clients about social posts.

Cons: There are small things that make it feel like it isn't ready for us to migrate all of our clients. The typical workflow that we accomplish on Facebook. For example, dragging content from my desktop to a post, selecting frames in a video or even uploading multiple videos at once using multiple tabs since it takes time to upload/process. I'm sure these are things that will be resolved in time and will be patient as they work out the bugs.

Overall: Ease of use when it comes to collaboration with clients and team.

Pros: Planable has clean integration with the most popular social media platforms. It's nice that it emulates the individual feeds so that you can preview how the posts will appear on the platforms and to your followers. Separating workspaces for different brands/companies and having user permissions management per workspace allows for a scalable agency solution, but it's a fully featured solution for a single workspace as well. Separate approval/scheduling actions allow your team to develop a workflow that is appropriate for internal or client use.

Cons: Planable lacks any advanced content or growth features that other services offer, such as evergreen content management or follower tools, though these are not a space that Planable is directly competing in. I would perhaps like to see more engagement analytics implemented if possible, as Planable is a good platform to engage clients within regarding approval and potentially reporting of their social media posts as well.

Overall: Management of clients' social media accounts.

Pros: The user interface is splendid and versatile. It's easy to click back and forth between actual SoMed page view and calendar view. Being able to compose and place new content in one place is awesome. The ability to share with teams and approve or reject their proposed posts saves untold back-and-forth. Though it's possible to program in different social media channels, we really need the ability to publish in Facebook groups as well as on pages for a comprehensive app. That functionality in LinkedIn is most beneficial.

Cons: We need it to incorporate Facebook groups the way it currently does Facebook pages for a complete and comprehensive tool.

Pros: The fresh interface and the visual calendar. The ability to see all of the posts on one calendar has been fantastic. I like the collaboration feature to work with clients and have them approve posts.

Cons: The software just needs more features. The ability to post on Instagram with the new algorithm change Instagram has opened up auto posting to business accounts. This is something that you need to keep up with the competition. The ability to have a library of content and integration with dropbox/Google Drive and maybe even unsplash or Canva would be excellent features! Also, the ability to save captions/hashtags in a library that would be searchable would be another great feature! The software is good but with some more features it could be excellent! Also, the mobile version is very difficult to use. The addition of an App for IOS and Google Play would be a huge deal.

Overall: The benefit of having a nice visual calendar with an approval workflow has been the main reason that we use the software. Also, the ability to auto post to Facebook and other platforms.

Great start, easy to use.

Pros: Planable is easy for my team members to pick up and use, and is great for small businesses . Visually, it is easy to see what you have ready to post where, as well as move things around.

Cons: As I said, it is a great start, but is more aimed at the lower end of the market - there are definitely some features missing - Google+ for example. I'm glad to see they've added in linkedin, so am hopeful other social platforms will be added soon. Some features (esp image choosing) can seem a little strange, but overall, it is a great low cost alternative to some other social posting options.

I'd also love to see more analytics and automation added in the future

Pros: Planable makes it super easy to collaborate on posts and see a calendar of what we have and where we need to fill in. The newly added evergreen post feature was so needed, and now just waiting for direct posting to Instagram, and it will be our go to tool for social media! I can use it for other projects as well, which is great.

Cons: The schedule has to be clicked twice to actually post on the day/time selected. The first time is to select a day/time, but the second actually schedules the post. It took the team a few missed posts to get that. Maybe just explain that as a tooltip on the workspace.

Overall: Very easy to collaborate and plan a social calendar.

Pros: I appreciate the easy way to crosspost to several platforms with ease with a minimum time effort.

Planable really makes it easy for me to write, check and schedule my posts.

Great feature: the repost button! :)

When chosing the twitter post form first or "standalone" it comes with a character amount checker that lets you create a post that fits to the last point. When posting to several platforms I can change the content of the posts to FB or LinkedIn afterwards if I like.

When i take a look at the road map I am really excited to see what will come in the future!

Cons: At the moment I can find only one negative aspect about PLanable:

The Instagram implementation isn't yet active but it's on the roadmap.

So I am looking forward to using it in the future.

Overall: It's easy to use and it makes fun to provide my followers with new content via several social media platforms with a very short amount of time.

I really appreciate Planable and recommend to use it if you are an active user of social media.

Pros: Planable allows my clients to see what their posts look like on their social media platform before actually posting. It gives the option of commenting by both me and my clients, so I can get feedback on the posts about necessary changes. My clients can view the changes while I'm making them in real time. Planable allows my clients to approve the posts easily with a click. It saves me so much time!

Cons: I think it could be improved to include more social media channels, but otherwise I love it!!!!!!!!!!

Overall: My client was impressed and loved being able to see the changes being made to the posts in real time while I made them.

Pros: The interface is clean and easy to figure out. The calendar view also is a great way to see what posts you have lined up and make sure you have content being posted each day.

Cons: The process of posting. The first time I used it, I did not know I had to Approve a post then set a date.. So I set up a bunch of posts and they were not posting. I talked to support and they told me I had to approve the post first, then schedule them. After doing this the app worked graet!

Overall: The biggest benefit for me was that it saved me a TON of time. Yes, like instead of logging in to many accounts and posting, I can just log into one and BAM. Done. Love it!

Cons: The software's still new and sometimes has glitches, however customer support is available via chat and email and answers quite quickly! Overall, I'd take Planable over any of the other social media services which I have and am letting my subscriptions in the other planning services lapse.

Overall: I love the integration and how intuitive it is. Highly recommend and know they will work out all the kinks soon.

Pros: The best part about Planable is that it allows us to see what a profile will actually look like when we schedule posts, rather than just scheduling it in an excel-sheet type way, we can alter our graphics immediately to make the post look great!

Cons: We have to receive approval, and some of our clients do not like having to go to this software. We would love for there to be a way to export the posts prior to posting so that we can send the exported version (maybe PDF?) to our clients.

Overall: We are easily able to schedule and post content through different social media channels using Planable.

Pros: How easy it is to get posts setup - to include the visual element. It's always great to come on and see a calendar view of your content posts for the next 3-months. And at the same time to be able to drag and drop for changes.

Cons: I just wish they had more platforms to post to! Right now they're on FB, LinkedIn, Twitter, & working on Insta... But I'd love to have pinterest, quora, tumblr, or even the ability to auto-post form my blog.

Overall: I was easily able to setup months worth of social postings for 12 of my clients in a matter of a few hours. AND give them a cool way to "approve" the posts.

Pros: The system is super easy to use, looks great, works perfectly without any bugs or errors and most important - my clients like it and enjoy working with it.

Cons: Still a few basic features are missing but it looks like they are working on it (Instagram posting, tag products and services on Facebook posts, etc.)

Also, there is no native app for mobile (though the mobile version of the website work nicely).

Prices are a bit high and not very flexible. There are only pre defined plans and no option to add a single workspace or a single user if you reached the max.

Pros: It makes it so easy to keep track of my contene calendar and plan things out. The calendar view is my favorite feature of the program, and the fact that I can drag and drop to simply change the days for posting is the best part of it. Overall its more user friendly and better to look at, and I switched over to this completely from the app that I was using.

Cons: The only con I have at the moment is that I wish there were analytics and the date/time portion of the scheduler could be a bit better. Also the controls for selecting your pages and platform to post to ( when creating a post) seem a bit fiddly and you have to click them *just right* to select them. Besides that, updates seem to come pretty often, and I love that they take customer feedback into consideration when planning on new features.

Overall: It's entirely replaced the other program I was using as this is much more user friendly and has a better interface overall.

Pros: Planable is unique in the market to allow "collaboration" of social media posting. A team can collaborate on the creation of social media posts directly within the app with realistic previews. No need to pass the copy back and forth using email/google docs.

Cons: Only simple posts are allowed for Facebook posting (no mutliple images/carousel/video/etc.). Sometimes, the schedule posts just got missed.

Overall: If you need to work as a team for social media posting, Planable is the app to go!

What I wanted to mention, is that you can easily add multiple images for Facebook, videos, and carousel posts. I'd love to show you how to do this - drop us a message on Intercom (right bottom corner, green icon).

Apologies for any issues about scheduling! We'd love to make sure it won't happen on your side anymore, let us know on intercom which posts did not go.

Pros: I love that I can manage several different accounts or businesses via workplaces in one dashboard. I also like the ability to switch between calendar and feed view and the ease at which posts can be created, reviewed, approved, and posted - with the input of an entire team. I've had several questions along the way and Planable customer service has been knowledgeable, timely, and very helpful in helping me to find a quick solution to the problem at hand.

Cons: What I do not love is the inability to post directly to Instagram at this time. I know this is a feature that is promised in the future; however, for the time being, it is not very useful to create a post on Planable and then re-create it all over again in Instagram. I'd also love to see a Pinterest option and features that optimize images for the respecive social media platforms.

Cons: I don't understand why some of my pages keep disconnecting. Currently, I am having issues with the connectivity of one of my twitter pages. I've tried connecting and disconnecting to no avail. Also, I find the calendar view slightly glitchy when I try to drag and drop a post.

Overall: Organization of all my main social media accounts. Ensures I don't forget about a page or client and makes scheduling very easy.

My Planable experience is extremely delightful. I use it to schedule posts with my clients with ease

Pros: I really love the user interface especially the previews. We can immediately see what my posts will look like in different social media platforms. We can also schedule posts according to my clients' timezone which is extremely helpful. We don't need to calculate the equivalent time in our clients' timezone to know the best time to post. But, what I really love about Planable is the support of the team behind it. (Although, you might not always need it since their UI/UX is well-designed.) They're just a click away if you need anything.

Cons: If there's anything that Planable is lacking, that would be Instagram posting/scheduling. However, this feature is already being worked on. Other than that, I really can't think of anything else.

Overall: Streamlined social media planning and management. Less Work, More Accomplishments.

Planable gets right what most SM planning tools don't: how will my content look like when published?

Pros: For starters I really love the simple and beautiful UI. I also really appreciate the fact that I can add up to 5 users per project (!), not per account. This is more than enough to discuss posts internally and with clients.

Also I really appreciate the fact that Planable is not just a scheduling tool, but also a discussion tool. The way we work with clients right now is that we create the post, discuss them internally, then discuss them with clients and then the client can approve a post and only after that are we starting to schedule a post. No more sending e-mails and spreadsheets back and forth.

Cons: Some features are missing that I'm used to from other software packages like auto posting according to a daily schedule instead of having to schedule everything with an exact date and time.

Pros: I love the ability to create and edit posts for different social media platforms just as if it was your real business page. Imagine getting the chance to collaborate with your team on how your post will look and flow alongside the rest of your other posts. Planable has right what most others don't. We don't need a scheduling software to post our content, we need a collaboration tool to create better content and serve it directly to our social channels quickly and beautifully. Planable does that.

Cons: Sadly, Planable doesn't have Instagram scheduling yet, but it's rumored that it is in the pipeline for future release.

Overall: We receive the ability to collaborate on social media content just as if we were posting directly onto our social media pages. It helps us plan purposefully, hone in on our message, and manage different accounts and pages effortlessly.

I'm very happy scheduling our Facebook and Twitter posts via Planable. Very excited about it.

Pros: The interfacial is awesome and it feel like we are posting and previewed the posts from inside Facebook. Also, it is super easy to schedule the posts.

Cons: We're looking forward to have the Instagram scheduling up and running, once we can only preview as for now. (March 2018)

Overall: The main benefit we got is to be possible to schedule the posts and send it to our clients to be reviewed with their own login, so they can modify and approve the post. That makes very easy to get the post approve by our clients.

Pros: LOVE that I can add my VA to the account to take care of posts. There's the ability for us to comment on any posts that are created. It's made life SO much easier than using an excel spreadsheet. The posts are added and look just as they would in my social media account.

Cons: This is not something that is their fault, but I sure do wish we could schedule posts to instagram. I think every app is missing that ability right now.

Pros: What I like most about Planable to begin with is the price: It's free! Moreover, you get differents views for planned posts, multiple accounts, multiples networks supported, team features like comments, and they add features regularly!

Cons: Sometimes it can be a little glitchy but thats the only bad thing I see, I am actually using Planable over Hootsuite/Buffer that I tried before.

Overall: Ease of planning all of my social media posts & coms

Pros: I love that it looks like a real facebook post - it would be great to see mock ups for all platforms and be able to sure off the posting function and use it more for internal/client approvals

Cons: Its glitchy and sometimes its not clear what some of the iconography means for what happens to the posts when you click on it. It would be great if you could turn off the posting functionality and use it as a mock up tool

Pros: I can plan everything on one calendar. This is very crucial for me to develop social marketing. I used to have to plan every single media site at a time. Now I can do it all at once. Very efficient!

Cons: The interface is a bit boring. I really want to have a function where I can customize my workspaces.

Overall: I can manage and organize my social media. Now I can hold all the event at once without the fear that anything gets overlapped.

Enjoyable and a Great way to keep on top of posting

Overall: My Facebook is scheduled for the month and I can't wait to be able to do the same for my Instagram. That is the reason why I initially got the software

Cons: There are still several things I wish it did. Such as, not post an image without approval first. But they are adding new features all the time!

Overall: It allows me to schedule all our SM posts at once and to get approval for all of them at once as well.

Pros: It allows you to improve the communications and review/approval times with your clients. You will be able to show them and schedule social media posts within the platform, were the client will have the capabilities to comment, approve or decline the posts. Just this will save you a chain of 100 emails.

Also, you can schedule them right away, so you kill 2 birds with one stone.

Cons: Nothing, it's a really neat app. Give it a try if you are having issues with approvals, long email conversations that take you nowhere, or don't know a way to show the posts in a simple way.

It's really visual and user-friendly, so even the non-techie clients will be able to use it without any hassle.

Overall: It saves me time (which is money) and improves my relationship with my clients as I'm able to deliver better results in less time. Also, it helps you avoid miscommunications that tend to rise in long email chains.

With this app, they can comment, aprove or decline with a couple of clicks so everything is transparent, upfront and clear. You can have all the team in there, so everybody is up-to-speed with the latest feedbacks from the client.

Pros: The developers are very helpful when you have a question or issue. When I first purchased the software, Vlad hopped on a video chat with me and answered many of my questions. I was concerned that it would not be able to do what I needed, however I was not disappointed! One of the main aspects that influenced my purchase decision was the scalability of the software and the rapid growth it with the speed of currently social media technology. Many of the newer platforms are not adapting to the current social media needs of small businesses.

Cons: So far, my only "cons" are that there is not currently Instagram integration and the posting calendar can get a bit cluttered.

I am using Planable only for a month so far, but it's effective and efficient!

Cons: No instagram and pinterest support yet. While IG is a work in progress, maybe temporary alternatives could be looked into, like the one offered by Buffer (post and caption sent to mobile device, just a couple taps to publish)? I saw nothing bout a pinterest support being planned.

Overall: Managing multiple Social media accounts, It's very useful to have them all in one place and easily add future team members to assist in the publishing process. I'll eventually leave the posting to them while remaining in the loop for approval purposes.

Pros: The software/program is really easy to use, and it also is very user-friendly. My company enjoys it as well.

Cons: I don't really have any dislikes about the program. Maybe make the subscription ? I'm not sure. No complaints, really.

Overall: My company began from the ground up, and within a month we had most of our social media platforms running.

Pros: easy to use, great support! The interface is quite good, although the mobile UI does have some quirks.

Cons: Could really use google plus, instagram and an ios app I do find issues with using emojis on a mobile ios device, they are difficult to tap/select. Built in google support with analytics would be amazing!

Easy to use platform

Pros: I love that I can post to Facebook groups, pages and profiles. I also love that I can have clients login and approve their posts without the back and forth of email.

Cons: We are not able to post to Instagram from Planable yet. Instagram is one of the top places I post and we can't wait for it to be up.

A wonderful social media planning tool that can be used across multiple channels.

Pros: The thing we like best about this software is its ability to visually share how a feed will look (pre-publishing) and ensure the right stories/messages are published!

Cons: What we like least about this software is it seems to always need updating which makes it really difficult to use easily.

We love Planable. We use it for many of organisations.

Pros: The look and feel is so easy to use. We love being able to view it like the networks. We love the comments section and being able to engage with each other.

Cons: Waiting on some updates, Instagram, double approvals. These seem to be coming soon. This seem to be a close process but is coming.

Easy and Fun to Use!

Pros: I love the drag and drop calendar that makes it easy to rearrange my posts. Also, the option of feed view where I can see even the posts that I've saved but not scheduled. It's intuitive to use and very simple for a beginning user to learn.

Cons: I have to make sure to click the "approve" button so the item will post, even though I don't need client approval. But I don't mind because it gives me a chance to double check what I've written as an intro to the post.

Overall: It allows me to set up a month or more of posts for Facebook all in one session. I can easily rearrange posts if I find something later that's time sensitive or if the client has a special to post. It saves me time.

I was new to Planable but quickly found its usefulness. I have not posted without it since.

Pros: I came to Planable from a manual system and the benefits were immediately apparent. Because it so easy to use, it saves me time, effort and money.

Cons: The procedure for scheduling posts was not easy at first, but once I figured it out, it was a piece of cake.

Overall: It saves time, effort and money.

Pros: Love that you can "see" your post before it goes live.

Easy to see what is in the que and when it goes live.

Cons: Not their fault -- but really want the Instagram integration to be native.

I really haven't found anything that I don't like about the software.

Overall: Ease of social management.

Pros: That you can make groups for different projects and make great content for all social media on one page.

Cons: Maybe that you could integrate it with social media feed that wasn't made in the app and could delete or make an improvement

Overall: Time-saving

effort saving
