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”.

Oktopost supports sharing videos on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter. To ensure that your videos will be shared, without issues, we validate each video according to the selected network’s specifications.
Please make sure that the video you’re trying to upload is formatted based on the specifications in this article: https://community.oktopost.com/knowledgebase/articles/1865824-sharing-videos
In order to create a post with multiple images, you currently have to select/upload each image individually.
It would save a lot of time to be able to select them all at once when selecting/uploading them.6 votes
You are able to upload multiple photos at once by using drag and drop directly to the post console.
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.

Ability to save filters in analytics to be able to navigate to different dashboards without losing most recent filter settings.
It would be nice if we were able to save filters in analytics to be able to navigate to different dashboards without losing most recent filter settings. Like Segments in Google analytics1 vote
With our recent updates, selected analytics filters now carry over to all applicable tabs.
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

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.

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”.
Show a true preview of what the post will look like on a social network. With image sizes and formats always changing on social networks, it would be nice to have a "true" preview of what each post will look like before it is published.7 votes
Through the Post Console, if you view your post in its Full-Screen mode, your post preview should be a much better indicator of how its final appearance will be, with options to see it in desktop and mobile view.
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
