Eliminate or expand the queue limit for bulk uploads

I would like to use Hootsuite for all of my social media bulk scheduling. But the 350 message limit is preventing me from doing so. Because of this, I'm forced to subscribe to one of your competitor's services (Buffer) to supplement Hootsuite. This has become financially unsustainable for my small business.

Given that Buffer has no limit on the number of queued messages at my present subscription level, I'm strongly considering canceling my Hootsuite subscription and refactoring my export lists to run entirely through Buffer.

However, I would like to stay. Is there any plan to increase the 350 message bulk upload limit in the near future? It's simply not an efficient use of my or my staff's time to manually enter another 100 messages after I've hit the 350 message limit.

  • I am in the same position. Our family run 3 small businesses. We have social media accounts for each business. The 350 limit is pointless and must be removed. Also, the cost of having more several profiles is very high for small companies like ours. One of the best things about social media is that small businesses are able to make their voices heard amongst the noise of the larger corporates. But this is limited by some of Hootsuites rules. Please change - thank you
  • Why are you doing this to me? the bulk composer is such a great idea - you should pay the developer double for this great idea, but who in the world had the idea to limit the number of messages to plan? There cant be no limit - sky is the limit...never heard of this. Please Mister Hootsuite: Think about it! We will include you in our prayers to extend the number of bulk composer uploads , SIr
  • I agree.
    If you decide to have an holiday and you want to programme 10 events a day on 7 networks (or social accounts) you can leave for not more than 5 days. 

    Probably the limit is necessary for commercial reason, but we can define different rules.

    An idea could be to put the new limit basing it on the number of days:
    while scheduling by bulk you can't programme a post after three months from today (or more, or less).

    This can make the bulk option more versatile for the user and grant to Hootsuite the subscriptions renewals. 

    Other ideas?

  • I have the same problem. I have several digital clients whose package includes social media management so I currently can't do more than a week in advance on BULK scheduler. I think the problem here is simple. UNLIMITED scheduling should mean UNLIMITED scheduling. Breach of agreement..?
