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.
Need option to reschedule/edit previous scheduled messages.
It would be nice to be able to essentially clone a scheduled post (this would work great for promoting things like job postings) and not have to do a whole CSV upload.
Maybe with the possibility to just change the scheduling time, instead of having to copy and paste everything
LOVE Hootsuite! It would be VERY helpful to be able to get a PDF or Excel of all my posts and the data attached to it for my analysis.
For example, right now the Google+ scheduled postings are always failing. Rescheduling fails as well, however the send now succeeds sometimes on first attempt - mostly on the second attempt. It sure would be nice to use the "Send Now" button when "rescheduling" a failed post.
Ability to clone or copy a message you've already sent
It would be awesome if we could simply click on a past scheduled post and we could repost directly from there. As opposed to copying and pasting into the compose section.
We can only reschedule the posts which is unsuccesfull in past schedule part. I need to reschedule the past scheduled messages which are succesfully posted
Great idea! We’ll look at adding this functionality in the future. Thanks!

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!!!
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.

Really need this functionality. Adding it would bring Hootsuite up to date too.
just checked out Edgar very cool feature.... just saying
Would be a great feature.
"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.
Need to add this.
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.
Please add this. If a WordPress plugin author can do this, then Hootsuite, which has much more financial resources than a WordPress plugin author, can definitely do this. https://wordpress.org/plugins/tweet-old-post/
If you do not do this, you will lose customer to other services such as Edgar Social Media. A large company such as HootSuite should be able to flow with the times
Awesome idea. This would be a very attractive feature for us users! Thanks!!
This is a top selling feature in Edgar. Hootsuite should do this just to stay on top.

I get that it could be abused. But there are 2 important points. 1. People are doing this anyway, they are just frustrated with it. 2. Posting multiple times, especially with networks like Twitter makes good business sense because not everyone is on Twitter at same time (Time zones).

Please, this feature will make the lives of social media marketers easier.
Caleb David Gonzalez Rivera commented
this is a really neglected post. You guys still do not have this alternative
They wont add this feature I made a post about this to, this is what thy stated to me.
We regrettably cannot move forward with this feature request at this time as this functionality is to avoid duplicate posting which is against the Social Networks’ terms of service.
This feature will help a lot, Please consider adding it as a feature to your great product.
