Allow the creation and editing of Facebook events.
I think being able to create Facebook events for each Facebook page from the dashboard would be extremely useful. That way, I wouldn't have to leave my HS dashboard to create and edit events and I could also send links to the events via twitter and other networks.
Would love to be able to Create Facebook Events with Hootsuite.
I use the Event function in Facebook often and would love to schedule posts ahead of time. I post 2-3 days prior to the event as well as several times on the day of the event. This generates enthusiasm as well as keeps guests engaged. Wouldn't this be great?!
I am an independent consultant and do Facebook parties on the Events page. I need to post to the EVENT and schedule posts for every 1-2 minutes so party attendees don't get bored waiting for posts.
One of the main reasons I joined HootSuite was so I could manage ALL of my Social Media, and that includes Facebook Page Events. At this time I can see the event under my Facebook Stream, but can't post on the event page, read message, respond to message, etc.
Please add this soon.
I will be running quite a few events on Facebook, and would like to be able to schedule posts to go up on each event page through Hootsuite like i can on my fan page. I'd also love the opportunity to be able to bulk upload repetative updates to each event page as a good deal of what i need to do for each event willbe similiar.
At my internship i've done research for a local pop podium on how the company should handle social media. The biggest problem with not only hootsuite but also tweetdeck and others is that none have the possibility of adding events to the connected social media, and most of them don't support uploading photo and video to the first party site (the picture gallery of a facebook fanpage for example).
I would like to be able to schedule Facebook status updates that include a link to a pre-made Facebook event. When the link is uploaded, I would like the Facebook event image to show up as the thumbnail.
With various admins for Facebook on HootSuite, I think for businesses- users should be able to create events via HootSuite.
I want to add events to FB from Hootsuite. I may want to queue them up for later distribution.
We continue to consider ways of extending Facebook’s functionality within HootSuite.
4 years on, still nothing...
This is a major drawback. With just this little fix Hootsuite would be perfect !
I would love it if we could create and event and schedule it to be posted at a later date. Any chance that will be available soon? It would be nice to be able to stay in Hootsuite for all the posting needs, right?

I really like Hootsuite and it's functionality. But I NEED to be able to post to events in Facebook! I have a direct sales business that hosts online parties and it just makes sense to schedule posts to events when I'm running and online party. My team uses CinchShare at the moment because you CAN post to events through that site. But honestly, HootSuite is much more user friendly and has more options. I would much rather stay on here if scheduling posts to Facebook events would be offered!
Can this be seriously looked at - it was 1st suggested 4 years ago, but no development yet!
Completely Agree. This would be a dream come true.
Please, please, please! Life would be grand if I could schedule events through HS!
sometimes I just assume hootesuite can do it all. being able to create an event on FB using hootesuite seems like a nobrainer functionality to have.
Being able to schedule posts within FB event pages would be HUGE
2014 and this is still under review? Do you care about your consumers/customers at all?
On that note, yeah that will be a GREAT! addition. Add a feature making posts on Facebook event pages!

Can you use HS to set up posts in a facebook event? Can't figure it out. Please help.
hope this comes soon!
This is I think a key feature.
J Davis commented
Yes! Events! Make it happen, please.
This would help streamline posting of events. Especially if you could import an ical feed which could be used to schedule the event on facebook or use to send a message to your social media network about the event from the ical feed.

yes please it would be awesome!
yes would like to be able to add events through hoot suite for facebook and schedule them! Maybe I could then have a life.....nah
I don't mind having to create it on facebook, but I DO want to be able to schedule a share!
I'm amazed we don't already have this capability!
