Why social media teams switch to Planable

Collaborate in context

Get everybody on the same page. We treat each social media post as a stand-alone asset.


Add internal notes for SOME team members only. Present the final approver with a polished, final version.

Keep all feedback in one place. Start threads. Tag your teammates. Attach files. All in the comment section.

After you implemented the feedback, resolve comments to keep your workspace clean.

When you’re done, get the final approval. Which by the way, can work the same way as you do: multi-leveled, required, optional, or none.

See how your posts fit together

Take back control of your social media planning.

Map out your social media campaigns in the most visual calendar out there.

Drag and drop your posts in the time slots that suit you best.

Set up a timetable of predefined slots according to your scheduling habits.

Create with no limits

Conserve your click-nergy by doing everything in one place.

Group similar posts for different pages so you
don’t double the work.

Make little tweaks for different platforms, all in
one place.

Fine-tune your Instagram

The most visual social media platform asks for extra attention to details.
In Planable you have a fully customizable grid view.


Accurately visualize your grid, plan in advance, and rearrange posts ‘til they come together into a cohesive story.

Talking about stories, on Planable you can easily create, preview, and collaborate on them as well.

Work that is organized

Spend less time looking for things and more time on getting things done.


Add labels by topic, campaign,
brand, favorite color, or anything you can think of.

Use the filters to sort through content. Filter posts chronologically, by timeframe, status, file type, and labels.

Choose the right views for your content, with no limits.

Use our Media Library to store your files and keep track of where they’ve been used before.

We do one thing and we do it perfectly

At Planable, we believe in being absolute specialists. Our specialty? Collaboration. You wouldn’t use your pocket knife for a job that required a precision drill, would you? You wouldn’t use a collaboration tool for your analytics either.

The more, the merrier

Planable is built with teams in mind. A big chunk of our features are focused on collaboration. We need at least two to tango. So far, we didn’t find a team big enough to scare us, so we’re up for the challenge

Spreadsheets are not our thing
