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

1. By channel - Send twitter posts only to advocates that connected their twitter account
2. By topics - send specific topics only to the relevant advocates / let the advocated choose which topics they are interested in13 votes
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
Ability to post more than 1 picture to Facebook29 votes
We are very happy to announce that you are now able to upload multiple images to your Facebook Pages and Groups! Please note that you are able to upload 8 images at a time and while at the moment, this is not creating a new album, they will be added to the “Timeline Photos”.

Would like to save drafts without scheduling right away. Currently the only way I'm seeing to do this is to create a message in Message Assets of a campaign, but majority of my posts are not in assigned to a campaign—so I'm unable to save drafts at all. Please enable this.16 votes
You can save Posts or Messages as a Draft by clicking the arrow next to “Share Now” or “Schedule” and selecting “Save as Draft”. If a Post is saved as a Draft, it will appear on the Calendar with the top-right corner bent inwards so it is easily seen.
Please add a character counter for Twitter and Facebook posts. For Twitter posts, the character count only starts after you've hit 112 characters.12 votes
Both Twitter and Facebook have character counters now.
Twitter’s will appear as a circle that fills up and will display numbers as you get close to the character limit.
Because Facebook currently allows up to 63,206 characters and in most cases will not be exceeded, the circle will remain hidden from view until you either get close or go over the limit, at which point it will also show the number of available characters left/characters over the limit.
There are currently four choices of platforms to create messages assets - Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and G+. If I have profiles set up but there are no profiles for a particular service, it would be great to have a way for the services without profiles to be "grayed out" or some notification that prevents me from starting to write a message asset in the wrong tab / service that requires me to either delete or cut & paste when I've made an error.3 votes
If there is not a Social Profile connected to Oktopost for a certain Social Network, that Social Network will no longer appear in the Post Console.
Show notifications when people mention you on twitter, quicker response rate that way.16 votes
This functionality is available in the social inbox. You can choose to receive in-app and email notifications when anyone mentions a Twitter profile that’s connected to Oktopost.
Instead of receiving a message saying my image is too large when I attempt to upload it, it would be nice if the system would automatically resize the image.28 votes
Images that are too large will now be resized.
In addition to this, when you are uploading an image for a post, you can use the crop tool to crop it to a recommended aspect ratio.
