Within the Instagram announcement, the creators account included a list of steps explaining how the new feature works. In a nutshell, you would create your post, beautifying it and such, and then you would navigate to advanced settings before positing.

Out Of The Blue?
Nope! Instagram has been working on a feature such as scheduling posts for a while now. They’ve been testing the feature over the past couple of weeks by selecting specific users to try it out. But, the good news is now its about to be available to everyone with a business account.
Many are shocked that it took this long to rollout a scheduling post option, especially since many people run business over Instagram. One user tweet:
It took so much time to roll out such an essential feature.
