How to Send Notification to Team for New Instagram Post

Sometimes we want to send messages to our teams about the new posts on Instagram automatically, and to make this wish come true Pabbly Connect is here.

But let’s not jump straight to the integration process, let’s discuss a tiny bit about both the services. So, Instagram is a social media platform that emphasizes photo and video sharing via its mobile app. Whereas, Slack is a chatroom application for your whole team to communicate both as a group and in personal one-on-one discussions.

Why Choose This Method Of Integration?

In contrast with other integration services-

  • Pabbly Connect does not charge you for its in-built apps like filters, Iterator, Router, Data transformer, and more
  • Create “Unlimited Workflows” and smoothly define multiple tasks for each action
  • As compared to other services which offer 750 tasks at $24.99, Pabbly Connect offers 50000 tasks in the starter plan of $29 itself
  • Unlike Zapier, there’s no restriction on features. Get access to advanced features even in the basic plan

Moreover, this would be just a one-time setup. After that, the data will automatically be transferred in real-time.
