You should connect your Brand's Professional Instagram account so that GRIN can automatically populate Instagram content with your tracked hashtags or mentions. If you skipped this step while Creating Your Brand, or need to reconnect, you can follow these steps. For more information on how authenticating both your brand's Instagram account and your creators' accounts work together in GRIN, check out our article Tracking Instagram Content

You must have at least one brand set up in GRIN to attach your Instagram. Be sure to visit our help article on Creating Your Brand first if you have not already.
