  1. Close post console window after editing a future post.

    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 screen

  2. allow emoji

    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.

  7. Pop up alert when no campaign is assigned

    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 campaign

  9. Create and save drafts

    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.

    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.

  10. Character Count

    Please add a character counter for Twitter and Facebook posts. For Twitter posts, the character count only starts after you've hit 112 characters.

    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.

  11. "Gray out" platforms that we don't have profiles set up for.

    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.

  12. Automatically Resize Images

    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.

  14. Make it mandatory to select a campaign before posting

    With the current interface, it's easy for a user to mistakenly schedule a post in a General Campaign when it was intended to be a part of a campaign.

    It would also be helpful if you add a confirmation window, something like: "Are you sure that you want to schedule this post in a general campaign?"

    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.

  16. Send emails to approvers when content is ready to review

    Notify approvers when social posts have been drafted to be scheduled. Similarly, notify schedulers when a post has been discarded or needs more revisions.

  17. Campaign Default settings - New messages default to choice of approved or unapproved

    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.

    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”.

  18. Approval Filters

    It would be great to sort and filter posts pending approval by date/tags.

  19. "Approve" button in editing/post console

    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.

    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
