How can we improve Hootsuite?

add functionality to reschedule a previously scheduled message.

It would be helpful to click a "reschedule" button for a past scheduled message instead of needing to copy/paste the old text. We have been using HootSuite for one week and already have found ourselves wanting this functionality several times.

        Hello Sarah,

        Yeah like someone else said, this feature is available on Buffer, I guess i'm switching soon..

        Has this happened yet? It takes me ages to re do posts thatI would love to be able to just drap and drp in calendar or reschedule or reoccur - this last question was 3 years ago in 2013

        Buffer can do it, Really handy feature, if Hootsuite aren't prepared to figure it out I suggest everyone heads on over to Buffer

      • RiannRiann commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I found this when googling to see if the functionality existed - has it been added in the last 3 years?

        Has there been a fix for this? I've been using my client's account to manage his social media but have not yet subscribed my own account for my business because my social media management work has been, to date, with only this client.

        I would like my own account, but because failed posts cost valuable time, want to be sure that a reschedule feature is available before investing in one.

        Hello Guys,

        I'm new to Hootsuite and was shocked when found that there is not such obviously function for rescheduling posts. I could not believe initially and only after some research I understood that this is true. Sad..

        Quite unbelievable that a company with the global reach of Hootsuite can ignore user requests for such an obvious feature for nearly 3 years.

        Yes please! I manage a few restaurants social media accounts. This would be wonderful to do as they have many repeating specials during certain times of year.

        Hootsuite, it's 2016. How do we not have this yet? Your whole product is about social posts, right? Maybe an update would be nice? Since it's been under review for 2+ years...

      • Casey CaneCasey Cane commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would love to see this functionality throughout the suite--i.e. in Draft mode, Schedule mode, and especially in Past Scheduled mode in the calendar view. Every time I hover over a post anywhere in the suite, I'd like to see a Repost / Reschedule button.

        It would also be very helpful to see images from posts in these popups as well.

        I see this idea was posted in 2013 and yet nothing.

        I post everyday to my social media sites and as you can well imagine, it is hard to be original every day, every month and every year. A "reposting" option would be a really smart and logical addition to Hootsuite.

        Your platform is suppose to make things easier for us… so please, make it easier for us.
