Hello @DonF4647 ,

 

Due to how Instagram functions, you can't add live, clickable/tappable links to posts' descriptions. This is a basic functionality of Instagram, and not something we can control. The only way to include a live link on Instagram is via your profile's bio. Typically if a page wants to direct followers to a site, it'll include a bit in the post's description encouraging them to check the link in their bio. With this in mind, if you plan on doing multiple social platforms at once, it's strongly advised to setup your Insta post as a variation.
