New Feature: Story Mentions Delay Timer

As requested by many users you can now add a delay timer to your Instagram Story Mention auto-reply. This can be useful if you would like to add a human-touch to your auto-reply so users don’t receive a reply instantly.

We plan to roll this feature out in Q1 2022 to other automation where applicable.

Add a time delay of between 5 minutes and up to 3 hours.

Another useful scenario is if are running a giveaway via stories and require users to @mention your brand. Users could potentially mention the brand in their story and instantly get the link to a giveaway then delete their story. This way, by adding a delay timer users must leave their story published for the desired period of time.
