Allow us to add & remove a social network to an already scheduled post via publisher
I use the HootSuite "Publisher" feature to schedule tweets for multiple accounts.
Half the time I forget to include a secondary account or to switch out one that doesn't apply to the tweet. Once I've scheduled the tweet, I can't seem to go back and change the Twitter accounts it is to be sent to. I end up having to start over.
If this is my error, I would appreciate a link to instructions showing me how to do it. Otherwise, please add it to your "futures" list!
I forgot to add my twitter profile to all of my schedule posts and would like to add them. Is there a way to do sO?
It doesn't make sense to have an edit option and not allow the person to add or remove profiles. It seems like it would be a standard feature in the edit function but currently there is no way to do so. I'm guessing that I'm not the only person who, because the Facebook preview doesn't work (and doesn't work half the time anyway) unless you select a Facebook profile first (even then it only pulls the correct info half the time), might accidentally forget to go back and select my other profiles before scheduling a message. It's just such a waste of time to have to recreate the ENTIRE message just to add additional profiles.
make it possible to add a profile to a previously scheduled post so we don't have to re-create the post just to add a profile
In the previous version and the current, it is not possible to open a pending tweet and choose an additional social network, or change the social networks that were originally set. In fact, you can't see which social network you chose in the first place. Very unhandy...
We’re so happy to let you know that this feature is now available in the HootSuite dashboard. You can edit the social networks in the Publisher view by clicking the pencil icon and selecting social networks.
Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please let me know below.

Yes, please add this...I'm in the same situation as Amanda. Thank you!!
Please please add this! I have scheduled posts for 6 months and I need to add one of the profiles to all of them! It seems that I will have to do this one by one which is madness...

I wasn't aware this wasn't possible till I added a twiter profile. I have a long list of scheduled posts and want to add the twitter profile to any that fit into the 140 char window.
Please do this soon - the rest of HS seems so intuitive it's madness that we can't do this!!!
please add it, I don't understand that it's not possible yet...What happen when you chose twitter and you wanted facebook instead ? you have to do everything again....
I don't understand why this is not included. When you can remove a profile from a scheduled post, it would be logic to also be able to add a profile.
What if you change your mind and f.ex. also want the posts to go to Twitter or you forgot to add all the profiles you wanted to schedule for? It happened to me today and manually going through all the scheduled posts and setting them up again for the extra social profile I wanted was VERY time consuming. :(
I've already tried to do this only to find it's not available yet...I'm all for it!
It's literally INSANE that everything about a scheduled message can be changed except the recipients. Even to ADD SNs. INSANE.

Please add this feature.
One year later.
Please please please do this. This is ruining my experience with this software singlehandedly right now.
I'm so disappointed that with the new release today this was not included!!
