Instagram 🤳

Freshen up your public screens by displaying images from Instagram! The Instagram-post on your public screens will automatically retrieve new images and keep people updated, at the same time as you get to advertise about where people can follow you.

You can display images from your own Instagram-user. The images on the public screen will be automatically updated when there are new images on Instagram.

We can display images from all Instagram-accounts, but if the account is marked as a "Private account", one must authenticate the post anew every 60th day.

Give access to your Instagram account

In order to display images from Instagram unto your public screen, you have to authenticate this. Click on "Give access" and log in to your Instagram-account. 

Hvis man er logget inn på en Instagram-konto i nettleseren, så vil denne komme opp automatisk. Ønsker du å vise bilder fra en annen Instagram-konto enn den du er logget inn med, må du derfor logge ut av Instagram-kontoen i nettleseren for å kunne logge på og autentisere med en annen. 

Limit amount of images and time period

The Instagram-post displays the images one by one. You can yourself decide how many images to display, default is the last five. 
You can also select how far back in time you want to display images from Instagram. Default is no limitation.

Videos and Reels

Video-posts from your Instagram-account will be displayed on your public screen with the image you chose as a cover-photo for your video, marked with a video-icon. Reels cannot be displayed in the Instagram-post, but the text from the reels-post will be displayed on the screen.

Preview and save

We recommend testing the different options here, select channel(s) and area of the screen that you want the post displayed in, preview, and save when you are happy with it. 😊

To start displaying images from Instagram on your public screen, you have to authorize this. Click "Give access" and log in to your Instagram-account. 

If you are logged in to an Instagram account in the browser, this will appear. If you want to view photos from an Instagram account other than the one you are logged in with, you must therefore log out of the Instagram account in the browser to be able to log in and give access with another.

Select if you want the post displayed in the main area or in the sidebar, and select which screen(s) to publish it on. It can be a good idea to preview before you save.

The display focuses on the last image that is published, and displays thumbnails of older images. 

If you have several Instagram-accounts, you can create several posts where you display images from different accounts. 

In the main area the last five images will be displayed, and in the sidebar only the last image will be displayed.

Video posts on your Instagram account appear on the screen with the image you selected as the cover, marked with a video icon. Reels from Instagram cannot be displayed in the Instagram post.
