I suggest you ...

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.

        I absolutely second this! It's more than two years since this was suggested. It would be great to see a response to this feedback. I've only recently signed up to Hootsuite and am not sure that I'll continue without this feature. It's ridiculous having to create new messages to schedule. I should be able to hit a button and schedule the same message again.

        Save the messsge as a draft. Open it again. Opt to "retain a copy of the draft". Autoschedule it. A copy remains in drafts. Later, open drafts, select and edit the draft and autoschedule again.

        Any update ?
        I will switch to another platform if I don't see any ETA soon.

      • InesInes commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Absolutely agree. This is needed and by now becoming quite common on other platforms. It should be one of the basics by now.

        I'm just wondering if there is anyway i can repost content that I've already posted through hootsuite. for like later down the line because at the moment i have to copy n paste the post I've already made and doing that for each one is not productive at all? surely there must be this feature somewhere I'm just overlooking it!?

        If not I'm shocked as this should be standard pro feature... as reused content is a must for businesses such as mine and 1000s of others

        Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

        This is really needed. Also being able to schedule a post many dates instead of once.

        Trainers and educators need the ability to reschedule previously scheduled messages - we use twitter and linkedin to communicate with students; especially useful to remind students about upcoming lessons, instructor availability, lab schedules. I use twitter to augment regularly scheduled lessons - and yes, we do this on twitter. Very frustrating that Hootsuite doesn't have this feature.

        I'd really LOVE this feature! People will abuse anything if you give it to them but what about those of us who NEED it? I do posts for a restaurant who want me to post the same specials each week. So, every Monday, I am posting the same specials. Every Tuesday, I'm posting the same specials. Of course, I post other content, too... but you could ease so much of my burden by just allowing me to reschedule the same posts! (Especially since bulk uploading posts don't support picture posts!!)
        Or allow me to set it up to schedule re-occuring posts (Post this exact post, every Monday at a specific time)! They're great for reminders! Car dealers who have an end of the month sale, every month. Rent due reminders for housing complexes... there are lots of advantages to it!

        Saying someone will abuse it is really not a good reason to add a feature! I could bulk upload the same spammy text post and have it just post over and over again as is if I wanted to abuse HootSuite.

        HOOTSUITE YOU MUST DO THIS!!!! This is the one reason I'm considering to go for Buffer app instead of Hootsuite. Go Go Go!!!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We need it too! Also, in the Publisher Calendar view, it might be nice to drag and drop a copy to the date we want.

        "This is a top selling feature in Edgar. Hootsuite should do this just to stay on top."

        -Totally agree and I was considering trying out Edgar for this reason.

        Any update on this feature? I'm considering switching to another service where I can repost past scheduled content. This would be an amazing addition to HootSuite. One person noted that this feature would possibility be abused - perhaps you could put a timeframe on the ability to repost - cannot be reposted in the same day as originally published for example. I hope to hear back soon!

        I don't see any new information on this topic... what is Hootsuite up to? Is this something you're working on or just letting us users vent.
