Calendar view of social media scheduling
I miss the calendar view when scheduling social media posts in HootSuite:
I would like to see HubSpot's social media scheduler function the same way.
Having a calendar view of emails drafted, sent and scheduled would help folks from different departments see a total view of how many emails are going out from the company. This is critically important to help us monitor and control the number of emails we send out in a day or week, so as not to wear out our readers!
I would love to see a full monthly calendar view in the social media posting tool. When I am trying to divide up my content that is being sent out I would like to see a full months view of what spaces I have open in my calendar more easily. If I can see all the posts for a given day and then had empty boxes signifying open time slots it would help me organize my posts greatly.
Thinking about moving to HootSuite for its calendar view of social media posts. It's just impossible to schedule anything longterm and across multiple platforms without it!
This is now live in your portals under the Content tab. Check it out and/or learn more about it here: http://video.hubspot.com/medias/j4ti43ryp2. As always, thanks for your feedback!

Next, drag & drop rescheduling would be great, just like in Google Calendar.
Would love it if we could also filter key words based on the calendar!

It would be great if this could be a calendar view of all upcoming content (blogs and social) so we could have a marketing content calendar that's easy to digest and see what's coming, when things are due, etc.

Has anything moved on this request since Admin's response in 2012? What would be useful is an integrated editorial calendar that includes blog posts as well as social media. We currently use coschedule on an external WordPress blog -- and it enables you do do this. (AND to schedule social media in advance of the blog's scheduled publication date.)
I could not agree more with this!!!
Something like the AI plugin you have but within Hubspot so it's fully integrated.

I think this is relevant to a suggestion I just made. 3 points for you!

I would love to see a drag and drop calendar. Put an area for desired content to share (blogs, content offers, landing pages) be able to drag those to desired dates and times and channels
This would be phenomenal. I would like to add a request to publish blog content and perhaps even email campaigns to this calendar as well.
So, if you agree that this would be useful, when do you plan to implement it.
In my opinion, this is not only useful, it's imperative!
I would kill for this idea! Scheduling with Hubspot is challenging - I can't see the full schedule when posting. Where did social media go in the content drop down? I have to navigate so deeply for something so critial to my inbound strategy. Please improve!

This is the exact idea I was just going to suggest. It takes a significantly long time to create and schedule posts out in advance if I want to set them up for the entire month or longer. You cannot see all of the dates and times you've previously scheduled, so posts sometimes end up overlapping. A calendar view with a bank of previously created posts that you can drag and drop into certain time slots and days would be most ideal.

I want to reiterate how frustrating your current social media scheduling interface is. Hootsuite wins hands down over Hubspot: they have a calendar view with mouse-over, and click-and-drag capabilities. The Hubspot version takes significantly longer to schedule with, and then to double check that we're not over-posting on some days.
While you're composing messages, having a feature that tells you what is already scheduled within certain days would help as well.
A content calendar would be great and seems like a natural fit that HubSpot would have this feature. Cannot wait to not have to use third parties being that all content is stored in HubSpot anyway. Please consider adding this feature as quickly as possible.
The social media tool is what I have the biggest beef with in Hubspot. Having a calendar view to schedule out posts would be a-mazing! :)

Yes! Having a calendar view makes it so much more efficient to schedule posts.
