        The massive number of posts we need to schedule over multiple social networks is harder when we have to continually filter by social network. If this suggestion is implemented, even more time would be saved. I understand that this may not seem like a priority, however I wish it were.

        I woudl also like to see the ability to color code individual accounts in scheduler. It makes it easy to make sure all accounts are looked after.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate


        I see this basic and very easy to implemented request was suggested back on 2011 ...

        it will be great if you could use different colors for difference social network !

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Would be great if we could color code our individual accounts so that the scheduling calendar makes more sense. Right now, I have dozens of BLUE posts -which isn't really helpful since I'm posting for 6 accounts.

        This is kind of a no brainer, i see for three years this has been a problem. I would love to be able to color code the different kinds of posts that i have such as a marketing post, or a warm fuzzy post. I can't believe such a basic feature, from the people who tell us all the time how to make sure that you're doing different posts to not turn your audience away, is not available? How lovely it would be to look and see that I have 5 pink posts this week... pink means marketing... boom! Please add.

        Please make a way to color code the messages in month view!! Just by social network would be great, but it would be even better if you could color code by network AND account! I manage several different accounts on several different networks. Staring at a wall of blue on my calendar view is making me kind of nuts...

      • LoriLori commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Agreeing that this very BASIC FEATURE would be of huge improvement to your UI.

        This was requested FOUR YEARS ago - why is it not done yet?

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I have over 6 social media platforms / users that i need to post information on. Its very hard to know what has been posted where. I think you need colours to be able to distinguish what is what.

      • jbjb commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Make it easier to, at a glance, determine which messages were sent successfully based upon a color-coded system.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would also like to color code topics as well as color coding social media platforms.

      • HannahHannah commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I schedule multiple tweets on several different events/features usually weeks but sometimes months in advance, it would be useful to be able to colour code tweets in the scheduler to quickly & easily view how many tweets on one event/subject I have going out without having to read every tweet in the scheduler individually.

        I add my vote to the rest for being able to customize our color coding on the calendar. If we could choose per post that we set up, it would help a lot. We have a number of topics and I'd love to be able to additionally assign colors to denote a transactional vs interactional post and maybe even differentiate posts on each of several topics, as well as different colors for each platform.

      • Monica @ Travel GlitterMonica @ Travel Glitter commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.
