        Adding to this as well, but would also like the opportunity to color code by client or "handle" so I can make sure that not too many posts from one client are bunching up together.

        I don't know why this hasn't been implemented yet. It's been three years since you've said you're working on it. For a company that strives purports to provide the most efficient social media management tool available, you are missing the most basic tool for functionality.

        This is a MUST HAVE. Hootsuite is a great tool and it would be much better with color coordination! It's a struggle to keep track of which post is going where when looking at the scheduled posts in 'Week View' Or 'Month View'...Wasting too much time clicking on each post to see where it goes. Hopefully this gets done fast! Thanks!

        I would certainly welcome this feature. Having 7 accounts to manage the posts of to have them colour coded would save so much time. Feature very welcome in this already amazing timesaving application!

      • meganmegan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        agreed! this has been a suggestion for almost 3 years now....
        implementation would be great at some point!!!

        YES - this would be a huge asset when having to schedule unique content for multiple brands. Please add color coding or at least add the avatar next to the content in monthly view.

        I agree this functionality would be so great to see in the publisher by color which post is going out for which social network account

      • Gerardo BarreraGerardo Barrera commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Definitely would be a GREAT feature to have this different color labels for each account, we hope to have it soon.

        Yes this is what I was just thinking about. I am working in the calendar and can't tell which one is FB and which one is Twitter. I don't like to send the same post to both accounts so I change it up and send them at different times. But I am trying to make sure the message is sent to both platforms at different times.

        This is exactly what I'm looking for. Either color coding, icons or some other kind of symbols in publisher would be huge. This would allow users to handle within Hootsuite a lot of the work currently being done in separate editorial/conversation calendars, at an enormous time savings.

        It would also be nice to assign each team a color and use that color to highlight scheduled posts in the publisher.
