The Instagram Wall app displays a collage of Instagram photos posted by your guests. The app will show the last 50 Instagram photos that either use your preferred hashtag or connected account. Instagram photos appear within 2 minutes of being posted by the user.
First, go to the Displays dropdown to select a display group, then the Apps dropdown to select the Instagram Wall. Alternately, if you go to the Apps dropdown and select the Instagram wall without selecting a display group, you will be redirected to the Library view to choose a display group to set up the Instagram Wall on.
Note: Videos will not play in the Instagram Wall, only in the Social Media Wall.
Setting it Up
The Instagram Wall works by using hashtags to pull posts into your feed. For example, if you add the hashtag "#enplug", all posts that include that hashtag will be pulled into your feed.
To learn how to set up a hashtag or connect your Instagram account, follow the steps in this guide.
Once you have set it up, you can view all posts by clicking the Posts button in the upper right corner of the page. In the Live column, you'll see all posts currently in your feed.
To interact with a post, hover over the post and click the arrow in the upper right corner of the post. You'll see options to Favorite the post, Delete it, or Delete the post and Ban the associated user. You can also view the post on the site of origin.
In the Favorited column, you can view all Favorited posts. You may Favorite up to 5 posts per feed, 20 in total. These Favorited posts won't be pushed out no matter how old they are - they will only be removed if you unFavorite or Delete them.
If you have Pre-Approval turned on for any of your feeds (learn more about Pre-Approval in this article), you will also see a third column labeled Needs Approval. This column lists all your posts that are pending your approval before they show up on the screen.
Under the settings tab, you'll find the Pre-Approval and Profanity Filter sections. As these sections can get very detailed, we have split them into separate articles for easier reading. Please see below:
To get an idea of how your users are engaging with your display, click the Reports button in the upper right corner of the page. This will show your Influencers, those who are posting the most to your display, and a graph of your Interactions so that you can see exactly how many posts from each feed you are receiving per hour or per day.
If you would like to export your social interaction data as a CSV file, scroll to the bottom of the Reports page, where you'll see the option to Export Data as needed.
Tips & Tricks
Only public posts will show up on the Instagram Wall. If someone has a private profile, their post will not be pulled into the feed.
