  1. Is it possible to set it up so that I schedule the posts for the sub-account and then each user in the sub-account has the ability to connect their social accounts? example: let’s say I have a fitness studio, can all of the trainers connect their facebook and instagram accounts and use the social planner separately? I would want them to be able to choose whether or not to post each of the pre-scheduled posts that I prepare for them and also use the scheduler to post their own posts outside of the ones I schedule for them.
