If you use HootSuite for your social media management (I’m obsessed…), then you were probably also dancing in your seat with excitement when you heard about HootSuite’s new function for the dashboard, AutoSchedule.
HootSuite announced on their blog August 9 that after many requests, the platform extended Hootlet’s AutoSchedule functionality to the dashboard. This now allows users to queue messages for the best times per social media network.
“It’s really quite simple – instead of our users manually selecting what time they want to schedule or post their social media messages using our Scheduling feature, they can opt to use our new AutoSchedule technology to optimize and automate the scheduling process. We want our users spending more time finding and sharing content and less time worrying about the best time of day to share it.” HootSuite’s CEO, Ryan Holmes, shared about the AutoSchedule functionality.
You can read more about this new functionality on HootSuite’s Blog.
It’s also really easy to set up AutoSchedule on your HootSuite dashboard as well. All you have to do is login to your HootSuite account, type in your tweet or Facebook post and click the Scheduling button. From there, it will automatically ask you if you want to enable AutoSchedule with an on/off switch. If you turn it on, HootSuite will be set up to autoschedule all of your posts for optimal performance. To turn it off, just click the on/off button again and you can manually schedule your post for whenever you’d like for it to deploy.
This is seriously going to save social media managers everywhere a ton of a time and provide more time to get creative. I give HootSuite a big thumbs up for this one!
