Save and edit drafts - iOS

Capture your content ideas on the go by creating drafts in the Hootsuite mobile app. Access drafts, including those created in Hootsuite on the web, in the mobile Publisher by filtering for Drafts in the post status filter.

In the Publisher , you can also create drafts with scheduled dates, so works in progress can be slotted in alongside finished posts. The scheduled content visible in the Publisher is dependent on the organization selected in your app preferences. If you belong to more than one organization, ensure the correct one is selected to view content for specific social accounts.

Drafts created on mobile are collaborative for Team, Business, and Enterprise plan users. This means that all organization members with access to a social account can see its drafts and take action on them.
