Allow auto-schedule when bulk scheduling posts
I think the auto scheduler feature is great. Now I'd like this feature available in bulk scheduled items.
The idea would be to be able to insert a code on the first column of the bulk messages .cvs file that indicates to auto-schedule that line's message, in stead of setting up the time and date for each message (like <auto> or something, I know nothing about code).
It would really help me out! I work in different time zones at the same time.
We’ll look at ways to further consolidate both these wonderful features.
Hi! It's three years later now. Did this development get implemented? I found this thread while searching for information on how to do this.
VERY much needed
As a paid service, it would seem prudent in view of best customer service to allow bulk auto scheduling. Most of us have better things to do with our time than schedule tweets by hand. I have considered discontinuing Hootesuite due to this oversight on the website's part.

Oh, yes PLEASE!
Any progress with this. It would be much, much easier

Would love this, it would make updating core messages so much easier!
The simplest way to achive this would be to just make the date/time field in the CSV optional. If you include a full date/time then it's scheduled according to that date/time. If you include only the date, it's scheduled on that day, with the auto scheduler doing it's thing to pick the time. If you omit the date/time field entirely then it just gets auto scheduled.
Would also love to see this feature incorporated!
Is this a feature yet?! :D
Yes, Please :'(

Oh yes please this would be very useful!

Auto-schedule with bulk messaging would be excellent.
Facebook blocks "so called" bulk/mass posts. This is a problem.
My suggestion: Find a way to stretch out the timing of posts so Facebook doesn't recognize it as a bulk/mass post.
You could post to 5 groups wait half an hour and post to 5 more groups, repeating the process every half hour until all the
posts could be sent.

I third. This feature would be tremendous.

Yes! Yes! Yes!
I use autoschedule to send links to my networks and bulk scheduling to upload my own content. I would LOVE to have the option of either leaving the scheduling completely up to Hootsuite OR (in my case, most preferably) set just the date, and let Hootsuite autoschedule the time.
I like to have a nice ratio of original content and tweeted links so that I don't feel like I'm using my networks for nothing but self-promotion. If I could just set the dates, and leave the times up to Hootsuite, that would be fantastic.
BUT -- I imagine that wouldn't be terribly easy to do -- that it would likely be an either/or case. In that case, I want the option of whether or not to use autoscheduling feature on my bulk tweets, too. As it is, I have my own schedule for my original content, which helps me feel good about my self-promotion to link- and information-sharing ratio, and I'm happy with that. But I'm also lazy and would like to leave more scheduling up to Hootsuite if I could. :)
Id love to be able to duplicate a message inthe auto scheduler!

I second. :)
