How to Compose a New Message on Hootsuite
Composing a message on Hootsuite is very easy.
Once you log-in to your Hootsuite dashboard, just look for the “Compose” button on the left-hand menu:
This feature allows you to easily create posts and schedule it in any time you prefer.
However, you can also compose messages directly on the Planner tab, which I personally do because it makes scheduling much easier.
The Planner tab can be accessed by clicking this button on your dashboard’s left menu, which looks like a calendar icon.
On the Hootsuite Planner feature, choose the date and time slot you want to schedule your new post in. Each day is divided into blocks which correlates to a particular hour of the day, from 12AM to 11PM. Simply click on the time slot you prefer, and then hit “Post” on the context menu.
Both of the two methods I discussed above will create a new pop-up window for you where you compose and schedule a new message.
How to Create and Schedule a New Post on Hootsuite
On the new window, click drop-down menu under “Publish to”. Then, select the social media profiles where you want to post the new content.
Compose your message. Type in the caption, and upload media if you prefer. Don’t forget to include hashtags and mention relevant users whenever necessary.
A preview of your post will be shown on the right.
Since you have already selected a time slot earlier, a schedule will be shown near the bottom right corner of the window.
You can always reschedule your post. Click the schedule shown to choose another date and time, or select a recommended time by TikTok.
Click “Schedule” or the down-arrow to save it as draft. You can always return to it later.
That’s pretty much on how you can schedule posts on Hootsuite planner.
How to Edit Scheduled Posts on Hootsuite
If you want to edit a scheduled post on Hootsuite, follow these steps:
Just head over to the Planner feature again.
Select the message you want to edit on either the Calendar or Content tab.
Edit the post as you would.
As long as the post hadn’t gone out yet, you can edit it as many times as you like.
Hootsuite’s planner also allows you to drag and drop posts to adjust schedule on the time table.
Tips on Using the Hootsuite Publisher and Planner Feature
Here are some more tips on using the Hootsuite Publisher and Planner:

- Clicking the Hashtag button # on the Composer window will show you hashtag suggestions.
- Use Hootsuite’s Bulk Upload feature to schedule 350 posts. On Hootsuite’s Planner tab, go to Content > Bulk Message Upload to proceed.Note that you can’t upload media and emojis beforehand, but you can manually edit them after they were done uploading.
