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
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
Have an option to upload videos to Instagram.6 votes
This is now available.
See this article for video specification requirements: https://community.oktopost.com/knowledgebase/articles/1865824-sharing-videos
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.
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
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.
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.
Instead of having to delete and recreate new Queues, it would be great if you could edit existing ones.14 votes
You can edit existing queues by going to the Social Profiles screen and clicking the Edit Queue Settings icon to the right of the Profile you would like to edit the queue for.
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.
A tick box beside each campaign to archive them (you have this in archive to revert back) It's a bit clunky having to go in to each campaign to archive when you have several to do.4 votes
This is currently available in the campaigns section of Oktopost.
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.
Bulk uploading capabilities for scheduling multiple post at one time across multiple profiles.15 votes
You can bulk upload messages using the Autoposter. The more information, refer to our knowledge base article: https://community.oktopost.com/knowledgebase/articles/349702-how-to-use-the-autoposter
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.
I'd love to be able to copy/paste items from the calendar. For example, there's twitter post that went out today that could go again in a few days. I know I can do it the 'normal' way but it would be really convenient to do it in calendar when I can see everything.8 votes
We have a duplication feature that you can use to easily repost. In the calendar view, click into the respective post to see the ‘Duplicate’ button as shown in the screenshot below.
Duplicate a message asset as all message assets in a campaign typically start with the same link.9 votes
One quick way to keep the same link available for all messages in a Campaign is in Campaign Settings. There’s a field for “Link” which when filled, creates a link icon on the post screen to quickly add the Campaign Link to the post.
