Once a post that has been scheduled is edited, a blank "make post" box is left on screen. I never want to make a post directly after editing a post. It should go straight back to the calendar screen2 votes
After editing a post, the post console will now close.
When composing or replying to messages, it would be extremely nice to be able to insert emoji in Oktopost rather than having to go to a 3rd party tool (I'm using Buffer) to insert emoji and then copy/paste back into Oktopost.3 votes
As part of our Post Console update, there is now an Emoji picker

New post button to be floating in the page, so when you are looking at the week posts and you are down scolling at 10/11 pm and creating new posts you dont have to get back up to click on the create new post button on and on again.1 vote
Not exactly what was asked but this should functionally serve the same purpose:
You can now start a new post, minimize the Post Console window, scroll down, bring back up the Post Console and create a post.
You can also set it to not close the Post Console window with a checkmark in the Share Now/Queue/Schedule button menu, allowing you to minimize and continue making new posts from the bottom of the calendar screen. I’ve attached a screenshot of how this looks.
Enable employees to share/RT posts from corporate Twitter/LI/FB so that the boost is given to the corporate account, not their personal one.4 votes
You can now do this by sharing the link to the original post in Oktopost on the relevant Social Network.
The easiest way to get the original post’s link is from the Calendar, click on the original post and View Report, then right-click the link under “Posted By” and copy the link address.
Managing more than one Twitter account on the Social Board.1 vote
In the campaigns, allow for setting that let you change your default settings for each campaign, or all campaigns. Including default all new posts to approved or unapproved when created. Currently it defaults to approved, then i have to manually change it to unapproved for review.
Changing the account privileges to contributor handicaps the specific account, and is a nuke option for something that could be fixed at the campaign level if there were an option to change your default campaign settings.1 vote
Your best bet to force approvals on a per-User basis is to set up a Custom User Role. With this feature, you can allow Users any set of permissions, while preventing them from being able to approve their own posts.
If it’s more of a convenience thing where you would rather it toggle the default one way or another, our new Workflows update sets your last “post” option as toggled, so if you want to make several approval posts, after setting the first one to “Send to Approval” the next posts you create will also show “Send to Approval” as the default action rather than “Share now/Schedule”.
Notify approvers when social posts have been drafted to be scheduled. Similarly, notify schedulers when a post has been discarded or needs more revisions.4 votes
With our new Workflows function, you can set up notifications for all of these. Check your settings for these by clicking your profile icon in the top right, and then clicking “Notifications”.
See here for information on how the new Workflows can help your approval process: https://community.oktopost.com/knowledgebase/articles/1895566
Have an option to upload videos to LinkedIn.7 votes
You can upload videos to LinkedIn Company or Showcase Pages.
In addition, posting a Youtube link from Oktopost will embed the video from Youtube on LinkedIn’s side. This works for Personal LinkedIn Profiles as well.
It would be great to sort and filter posts pending approval by date/tags.1 vote
The Approval Workflow process has been updated, and while there isn’t a tag system for sorting, there’s much more customizability for approvers and contributors and which posts they will see or not see to approve based on how your workflow is set up.

Drag and drop posts to a different day8 votes

Allow Contributor Roles to compose and draft posts for the Board and the Admin Roles to approve them.2 votes
Contributors can now compose and draft posts to be sent to approval for the Advocacy Board with our Workflows update. See here for more information on setting up Workflows:
The All Topics drop down is far to the right of the All Networks drop down. Some users might not notice the All Topics filter, which we think is an important feature/drop down to notice. Can they be located closer together at the top left of the screen?1 vote
I believe this was resolved during the UI overhaul, as I couldn’t find where this is happening. If this is still an issue, let me know where this is displayed, and I will reopen this.
I would like to click the drop down and copy to a board without having to copy and paste it manually
Copy to Advocacy Boards without Scheduling1 vote
This is done by clicking the Copy to Board icon either from the Post console or by opening a Campaign Message.
When editing “unapproved” messages it would be great to have an “approve” button. That way you can approve and schedule a message at the same time and need fewer clicks.2 votes
You can do this by scheduling a post time (even if not the final post time, perhaps a placeholder day/time at the end of the week/month for this purpose), sending it to approval, and then the approver can edit the date/time if needed and approve the post to go out. This will create the message for future posts in the selected campaign, while allowing for faster Approve and Post times.
See here for how approvals have changed with our new Workflow update: https://community.oktopost.com/knowledgebase/articles/1895566
make the post console movable above the calendar view, so you can see what else was scheduled before.6 votes
Our new Post Console can be moved around the screen by clicking and dragging the top of it. It can also be minimized to the bottom of the screen allowing you to navigate anywhere in Oktopost and bring it back up.
Ability to see a preview of what your post will look like5 votes
Through the newly updated Post Console, if you view your post in its Full-Screen mode, you will see how your post should appear with options to see it in desktop and mobile view.
When posting a new message from the general calendar, would love for a pop up alert notifying you that no campaign was assigned, instead of automatically assigning it to a general campaign11 votes
If a Campaign is not selected when scheduling a post, a prompt will now come up reminding you.
Otherwise, the Campaign will now be set as your last-used Campaign by default rather than creating a new General Campaign.
The advocates should be allowed to submit a post to the board. It should be part of the platform to where it affects their leaderboard ranking23 votes
If the setting is turned on for the Advocacy Board, Advocates can submit suggestions to the Board admin(s).
It would be great if we can set the default view for the Advocacy board main home page by filtering the "topics".
We started to use the new "topics" feature in order to translate each post to different languages and the problem is that when each board user opens the board they see all the message assets there.
Therefore, it would be very helpful if we can set the English language posts as default and if someone wants to see only a certain language they can filter by topics.
This can be done by each Advocacy Board user by going to the My Profile cog on the left side of the screen, clicking “My Topics” and selecting only the topics they want to see.
