Compare 2016 vs 2017 data

I think Hootsuite should update to allow the comparison between a certain date range from 2017 to the same date range from a previous year. For example, I would like to advertise how well my social media posts for the Valentine's period performed. Currently I can only compare this period (1st February-14th February) to it's previous period of the last 2 weeks of January. Not very useful really! Ideally I would be able to compare 1st-14th Feb 2017 to 1st-14th Feb 2016 to see if our 2017 campaigns were more successful, if our growth has led to more engagement of posts etc. This should definitely be a feature!

  • Can I bring this one back to the forefront?
    The ability to compare dates with the previous year is essential for business. Can you please consider making this possible.

  • I agree. As an independent contractor Social Media Manager, I need to be able to show continued results & growth for my clients. 
  • Couldn't agree more, as a Social Media Coordinator this feature would be invaluable for analysing a specific date range with another specific date range. The current facility is very limiting. Please look at changing this Hootsuite.
