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.

        Yes, please. Why is it taking so long to implement this? The bulk scheduler as it stands is very time-consuming rather than being a time-saver. And why will it not accept duplicate messages? That's crazy. Even Twitter allows you to tweet the same thing day after day if you choose to.

        Outside of creating specific evergreen content functionality, I would love to see something like this.

        Two years since this suggestion. Is it available yet? I used to use Tweetadder and that was my favorite part of the software...bulk upload and auto-schedule...it even would continue to repeat the tweets everyday. It also would randomly retweet tweets from a short list of your favorite users.

        Really? You've been looking at ways to do this for THREE YEARS? Seems like a no brainer to me.

        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.

        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.

        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.
