View, edit, or delete scheduled content (Legacy)

Note: This article is for a legacy feature. Before moving ahead, we strongly suggest managing your scheduled content from the Planner instead!

You can view all your scheduled content in a list view by selecting Publisher, then the Content tab along the top. Select Scheduled from the list to view your scheduled content.

View scheduled content

Under Scheduled or Past Scheduled, you can select how to view your scheduled content by choosing List, Day, Week, or Month. Free Hootsuite accounts have access to the Scheduled list view and the Past Scheduled weekly view.

Hootsuite displays a maximum of 100 scheduled posts at once, so filter content by profile, or view by day or week to see all your scheduled posts.

The colors in the Publisher calendars indicate the status of a post.

Scheduled:

  • Blue - scheduled post
  • Brown - scheduled by AutoSchedule
  • Pink - requires approval

Past Scheduled:

Edit scheduled content

Editing a scheduled post can include adding or removing social accounts used to publish, editing text and images, modifying the scheduled time or date; as well as modifying tags, location, or targeting.

Editing a scheduled YouTube video can include editing the title, description, tags, and category of the video, or changing the privacy setting or scheduled publish time or date. You cannot edit video details on scheduled Facebook posts (video title and category).

You must complete your edits to scheduled content at least 5 minutes before the initial scheduled time and date. For posts that contain video, you must complete your edits 15 minutes before the scheduled post time and date. If you don't save your edits, Hootsuite posts the original post.

Tip: Remove the scheduling settings on a scheduled post to publish it right away.

You can delete scheduled posts individually or in groups. Deleted posts cannot be retrieved.
