When a message is made available to the Advocates for sharing, it should look like a 'share' - that is, have the header with the original post's creator, date, etc. Having it appear like the Advocates own thoughts is suboptimal when multiple Advocates post identical messages in the first person.1 vote
This is already possible. In order to create a “share” post that shows the original post’s information, you simply need to share the link to that specific post.
You can get a post’s link from the Calendar by clicking View Report for a Post, right-clicking the Social Profile’s name under “Posted By”, and clicking “Copy Link Address”.
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
Because some content is time-sensitive, an option for real-time notifications should be available. Many of our users want the option to be notified when new content is available, but the best they can receive right now is daily notifications. Not ideal when every competitor offers multiple options for notifications.1 vote
Have an option to upload videos to Instagram.6 votes
This is now available.

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.
Send email notification when a post doesn't go through for any particular reason (specifically an error)
When scheduled posts do not get posted, we have no way to be notified. Finding out the next day is often too late. It would be great to get email notification that a post did not go through and why.5 votes
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.

Authorize the advocates to post several times the same post to maximize visibility2 votes
This is now possible by clicking the icon on the top right (it looks like a box with an arrow pointing up) when you click on the previously shared post from the “My Shares” screen.
In the advocacy section, it would be great for the content to remain after it has been shared. The content disappears after it has been shared and it would be useful for this to remain for possible resharing.2 votes
It is now possible to reshare a post by clicking the icon on the top right (it looks like a box with an arrow pointing up) on the previously shared post from the “My Shares” screen.
Drag and drop posts to a different day8 votes
You can drag and drop posts from the calendar by clicking the social network icon on the post, and dragging it to another day.
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:
For example, If the person hasn't connected their Facebook profile, they SHOULD NOT be seeing content for that network. It's super irrelevant and a big distraction. The same goes for the emails, they should not be seeing content for the networks they did not connect.1 vote
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.
