Schedule recurring events from the scheduler without having to do a batch. See Sprout Social's service - very robust and clear reporting, simple user interface for scheduling recurring messages. I would rather upgrade to pro on hootsuite and have this ability here instead.
There needs to be an option where you can select different dates and times for the same post. This is very necessary when you manage too many pages.
Scheduler is one of HootSuite's greatest features!
However, Scheduler can be enhanced to allow daily, or multiple day posting of the same message (or groups of messages). Specifically, I am suggesting that a feature be added to allow me to schedule the transmittal of a message to a Facebook group or to my Facebook wall, every day, or on specific multiple days. Such a feature would eliminate me having to schedule the same message on subsequent days, every day, on weekdays, or on weekends!
Rather than use a CSV, can you just have a screen that allows the user to choose a date they want their post to go and click on all the times they want that individual post to go out that day? This would be ideal for scheduling the same message to go out throughout the day. Having to schedule the identical message multiple times in the same day is too repetitive.
Allow us to set post monthly !!! example every Monday tweet or post what we want every on the exact same time daily so we don't need to always reset tweets weekly or set 4 at time for the month.
Forecast Planning Posts
Can you please improve Hootsuite in the Forecast Planning Posts, so that User does not need a CSV-Folder.
It could be easier for all User to make a Planning
from ... to
from (04/01/2013 7:00 a.m) to (04/30/2013 7:00 a.m.),
if they would post the same Post to the same Time every Day (e.g. "Good Morning @ all! :-)".
So, the User does not need a CSV-Folder. The User could make the Planning of an every Day Post in Seconds. What a big Advantage for all Users of Hootsuite. And Hootsuite could win new User.
From my Point of View, Hootsuite can solve this Problem fast and quick and with low Costs and a big Benefit for all Users.
And you have a second Solution, too.
Maybe Hootsuite can allow in the Calendar Function to mark the whole Month with a STRG-Functionality.
So, you have to type only one Time the e.g. "Good Morning @ all! :-)" and a User can post this in Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Linkedin every Day at the same Time and the User can save a lot of Time.
This would be a great Functionality in Hootsuite and Hootsuite can win more new Customers.
From my Point of View, Hootsuite can solve this Problem fast and quick and with low Costs and a big Benefit for all Users.
The CSV-Folder and the manual Planning in Hootsuite is a lot of Work for all Users.
So, now you have two new Solutions to solve these Problems and you will have a great Benefit for all of your Hootsuite Users and you can win new Customers, too.
Hi I would like to find out if there is anyway that I can add reccurent post on hootsuites on different days of the week,
That would be absoulty AWSOME if you can add that to the program.. then it would be the best.
Is there a method currently available in scheduling where we dont have to manually go through, for example, every Facebook group to have our posts scheduled every 5 minutes, the same message, so we dont get put in Facebook jail. For example, we have a group of Facebook ad groups and want to send the same post out to all Faceook ad groups in that group but have them spread out every 5 minutes or so. And we want this repeated daily. OR for example, we have a blog post that we want to go out to many FB groups but want the post to be scheduled over a period of time, say every 5 minutes.
We need this feature - recurring posts for weekly & monthly messages, esp. for community & social media managers like myself.
i dont want to schedule this tweet 1 by 1, just one setup for every friday of the year at 8:00pm
Allow easy copy & paste in publisher view so that someone can easily schedule a post out several times over the course of a few months, CTRL+C CTRL+P style.
Please add an option to post something on a regular schedule and to be able to add multiple dates and times to a post.
Since you have the ability to schedule posts in advance, it would be nice to be able to schedule one post to repeat every so often. For example, something that might announce who I work for, or what kinds of things I tweet, or information about an upcoming event. Probably have to have a minimum of a 24 hour window?
It would be very useful to be able to set a reoccurance schedule for posts. We, for example, need to send the same tweet on the 14th of each month.
Sprout Social offers this feature - it saves hours of tedium re-entering the same message for multiple days
We need a way to schedule tips on our FB page 12 months out. Each tip posted 2-3 times a month on different days at different times. We need a scheduling tool that would allow us to enter a post, then pick how many times a month, how many months out, set the time or randomly thought out a given time zone, etc.
Example: we could Schedule a tip to post 4 times a month, between 6am and 12pm, m-su, for 12 months or 14 months. Or schedule tip that would be posted m, w, f, between 8-am and 5pm, for the next 6 months etc.
The goal of the tool is to save time, and we put basic content up to help fill out posting schedule, right now if we want to use the same tip w need to create a schedule for it 30 time to accomplish this type of scheduling.
I have a Monday special, Tuesday special and so on. Would love to just program it in once instead of going back each week to do it.
Autoretweet daily and daily tweet example, 24 tweet each hours
An app that lets you make REOCCURRING, scheduled posts. Hoot Suite only let's you schedule out a post one time. We need to be able to schedule posts to go out, to, say 5-10 social networks or groups within social networks, on a daily, bi-daily, weekly basis. That way you can "set it and forget it". Would save A TON of time! REALLY surprised Hoot Suite doesn't have that feature already (Post Planner has that feature, but it only does Facebook).
In hootsuite there is a BIG limitation, in email marketing you can schedule emails so they reccure every 30 days for example.
another thing is, if i have like 300 drafts, i can reschedule them all at once and change the next date for sending to the next month, with the same days,hours,minutes. changing only the month with a single click for all drafts.
it's a pain in the ass every month to take all the 300-600 messages in facebook fanpage and reschedule them 1 by 1, instead of them reccuring like in email software.
It will be great to auto re post the same twit with some interval of time.
we all know nobody reads every tweet or fb entry, so to maximise viewings they need to be posted multiple times , bt doing this manually even via hootsuite takes time, having hootlet do it automated would be great, the fact it does it once is helpful, mroe than once, with us settign the gaps ie every day, every 3 hours etc, then hootlet calculates the bestest exact time to post them
I would like to be able to access the auto-schedule function from within my Drafts. So, instead of having to set a date/time on the schedule function as it is currently, I can leave it up to the auto-schedule to post out for me. This helps with repeated postings, i.e. job posts to my status updates. Thank you in advance,
I love hootsuit very much than other schedule tweet, and you are perfect if you add recurring tweet in schedule time. So please add reccuring tweet dear hootsuit :(
in other way to repost my old posts in other time as this is saving time to make other new posts
Instead of having to input times when a tweet will be broadcasted have preset times when they will be Published. I prefer not to have to select a time for each tweet. This is also helpful if I delete a tweet (or rearrange the order of tweets) In the queue that the times will automatically be adjusted. This feature is included in other autoTweet apps.
Currently any scheduled tweets are static. They have to be deleted and re-entered, even if you simply want to change the time/date of posting.
it would be cool if when we are scheduling that we could add more dates all at one time so I could schedule out my whole year.
I would be very happy if there was button that re-schudule todays posts for a specific day.
Here is a basic functionality you should study.
It would be very great if we could chose more than only one schedule for a status.
For instance, chose 3 or 4 times to repeat the same status during a day or a week. We could win a lot of time !
Basically, we could you use to say good day every morning, or good night every night... you see ?
I have clients that are on TV shows, and would love to have a pre-made post that post every time their show is on to remind people to tune in and watch. I'm sure others will have other uses for it.
I wish to compose a single message and schedule it in a recurrent basis. Example: I want to be able to compose a message like "Monday at Sonic Radio... etc, etc" and schedule it for every monday at 12 am. And when saving, do it for all the data posted to Facebook (image, title, link, brief, etc)
Certain free places already do this - would be nice to have with hootsuite. Scheduled tweets are fine. But to automatically / repeatedly send those out, at different intervals to fit in with Twitter guidelines (once set) would be ideal!
Thanks so much for the feedback! We’ll be evaluating this feature request in the future.
Ashley Stanley commented
I agree, this needs to happen. We have a few posts that go out regularly and it's much easier to schedule it once than to continue adding it each time.
Hoot Suite Technical Support, when will this feature be implemented into HootSuite Pro?
I agree, Hootsuite NEEDS a reoccurring events feature
This feature would be an amazing addition to HootSuite. It would make posting the same post multiple days so much more efficient.
Beth Beers commented
Please, please, please add a reoccurring events feature! I was using that a lot with Gremlin. I am in the process of deleting my Gremlin account because of multiple issues with them (scheduled events disappearing from my reoccurring list and they can't explain why, not being able to access my scheduled events many times, the ridiculous 4 -5 step process to even get to my scheduled posts, site being down way too many times, tech support who doesn't seem to have a clue how to fix problems.). I had to go with Tweetadder to move my reoccurring tweets to, but still have other tweets and Facebook posts I'd like to schedule on a reoccurring basis, but at a scheduled time, which Tweetadder does not have. I am a huge fan of Hootsuite, I am always recommending you guys to everyone who is looking for a new way to tweet and post. Musicians love your site because they can schedule their band promos. Add the reoccurring events feature and the bands will absolutely love you! I know I will! :-)
Tone Williams, I understand your sentiments. I only been working HootSuite for almost one month. How long have you been working with it?
Tone Williams commented
I am preparing to leave HooteSuite as well. This has been ignored much too long and I feel like I'm wasting my money. I mean after nearly 500 votes, you'd think they'd take this seriously.
Let's get this scheduler ehanancement done, HootSuite web development team! Please add a feature to enable messages to be scheduled with daily option, or the feature within the sscheuler calendar to use the "CTRL"+(left mouse button) to select multiple days in the calendar application.
This is a most have for me, please pay more attention to this feature or i will be moving to another service soon, i really need this, i am wasting a lot of time scheduling my tweets for my recurring campaings.
When I joined Hootsuite you could schedule multiple times for one message to go out - I was shown the facility during training last November. This was the principle reason I upgraded to Pro. Now I learn from Hootsuite that, (for me), this crucial part of their service is simply not available any more - not that I suppose they'll be offering me a refund for the last few months subscription - they recommended I add something to this forum instead. THIS IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH!!!
Bryan Gilchrist commented
Yeah, this is one reason I switched away from Hootsuite. Having to do batch messages, and being forced to make everyone different was a big time waster for me. I moved over to Sendible which allows reoccuring events and the messages can be the same. I only post about one message a day, though.
In fact is there any update since your last post back on Oct 26, 2011
I am seriously consedering switching over to Sprout Social because they have this feature!!!
Aileen O commented
Would love it if you guys can add the recurring feature. Having to do a batch and manually adds way too much work and slows down productivity.
Yes agree with Darshana, sprouts multi scheduling is awesome be great if hootsuite can add this feature
Is there any update on this other than what was posted back on Oct 26 2011
We agree - we pay for pro and the lack of recurring events is killer. We are going to switch soon because it is a time kill.
Please add the functionality to send messages on a recurring basis. Having to schedule every single message for weekly classes that go year round is very tiring. Please help us out with this!
I'll add my vote for this feature. I handle social media for my client and we post strategically-timed Tweets every evening at a time that is tied into our branding. We often have large-scale events that we want to promote via Twitter over several weeks leading up to the event, with repeating (non-spam) posts to boost ticket sales - it would be a HUGE help to have a way to do this via HootSuite without having to go to the bother of creating a .csv file for these posts. Would really like to see something by way of a response from HootSuite on this, other than "we continue to consider further ways to add more functionality...". If you truly want to keep your customers happy - especially your paying ones - you should seriously consider adding this feature.

You know what would be awesome, is a "Sprinkle" function in HootSuite where if you want a tweet to go out multiple times (for example, in the lead up to a webinar or event, or to keep promoting a good blog post or landing page), to be able to click a 'Sprinkle' button where you can then specify an end date (if you want to -- e.g. if for an event or something that expires) as well as specify how frequently -- e.g. Daily, Almost Daily, Twice a Week, Weekly --- and the 'Sprinkle' element is where HootSuite would intelligently AutoSchedule but ensure a 'repeat tweet' doesn't go out on the same day of the week at the same time, to try to avoid the same users seeing repetitive tweets. Hope that makes sense. In SproutSocial we have been 'manually sprinkling' tweets via the Cmd+click on the Calendar to pick a variety of days. The problem with that though, is that even if you sprinkle across different days of the week, they will all be at the same time of day ... unless you repeat the process of selecting a different time of day, and then selecting different days from the prior group selected. Sprinkle the love ... :)
