  • I would also like this feature.  The ability to quickly see which posts are going where is incredibly useful.

    Also allowing custom colour codes. I manage 3 different brands across 3 networks. It would make it visually easier to scan through the calendar and spread content management evenly across the 3.
  • Colour coding of the different networks in the calendar view is essential in my view. So we can see what's scheduled on twitter, what's scheduled on facebook, what's scheduled on insta etc. currently difficult to see whats what!
  • Color coding by the social network in calendar view would be of great help.  I have found a few topics on it but nothing has been changed.  Anyone know of any change in the works?
  • This feature would save me a lot of time and help me explain my social media plans to management.

    It would be very helpful to color-code accounts or display the profile picture (like it does in List view) in publisher so that when I'm scheduling posts for 15 different accounts, I can tell the difference between posts for each account in the Month Calendar view. As it stands now, when viewing scheduled posts in the Month view, each posts shows up as blue no matter which account it's for. We have multiple companies with multiple social media channels, and it would be great to at least color-code it by company to gauge it I need to schedule more posts for that company, that account, for that week/month.

  • Still under consideration? 
    Kind Regards
  • I've just started playing with scheduled posts, and sometimes i lose track of which day I've set a scheduled post. Adding a colour behind a date that has a scheduled post would be a simple reminder of where there is already a scheduled event. 
  • I think it will be a bad design issue with too many social accounts to manage (I manage 8 i.e.). I suggest a simple filter for social media (multiple social selectable!)
  • very good idea
  • this is the only thing missing! it would make planning multiple accounts and platforms so much easier!

    I also wish my posts for Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook had different colors in Publisher view! It would save me from having to click on each post all the time.
    Love your product! Please please please make this happen!
  • Fingers crossed so that they read that post
  • Am currently in a live chat with HS about this very thing and he referred me to here - a discussion that's being going on for quite a while. I'm left wondering if it will make a difference. Apparently the development team always look at the feedback and review whether they take the ideas to production. Any updates Development Team?
