Tabs provide an organizational overview for your streams. Think of a tab on a manilla folder; tabs in your HootSuite dashboard provide the same functionality. 

Tabs can be added, edited or deleted. It is important to note that when a tab is deleted the contents cannot be retrieved only recreated. 

All HootSuite plans can host up to 20 tabs per dashbaoard. And each tab can host up to 10 streams.

 Adding Tabs

Adding a tab to your HootSuite dashboard is an easy way to group streams and keep your dashboard organized.

To add a tab

  1. Click the house (Streams) icon on the left-aligned launch menu.

 Updating Tabs

 Renaming Tabs

Naming tabs according to stream content will help you stay organized. For example, you may want to name the tab that hosts your Twitter content, 'Twitter'. Because the content you monitor can change, you can rename tabs in the Streams section of your HootSuite dashboard.

To rename a tab

  1. Click the house (Streams) icon on the left-aligned launch menu.
