Manage assignments in the Hootsuite mobile app

Important: In December 2022, we’ll be removing Assignments from all Hootsuite accounts. Read about this change. Assignments is not available for Hootsuite accounts created after July 7, 2022.

Use the Hootsuite mobile app to collaborate with your team on the go and quickly assign Twitter conversations to specific teams or team members.

How to use team collaboration with Hootsuite mobile video.

Assignments created in the mobile app and on the web dashboard sync in real-time, so you can see all assignments in your mobile streams, and vice versa.

Note: The consolidated view of all assignments is only available in the Hootsuite web dashboard in Assignments .

Assignments in streams are indicated by a yellow banner. The banner will say 'Assigned to' or 'Replied to' if the assignee has already replied to the tweet and begun interacting. The Twitter profile must be added to a team via the web dashboard for reply banners to appear.

When assignments are resolved, they update with a green resolved banner.
