Set preferences in the Hootsuite mobile app

You can select a different organization in the Hootsuite mobile app if you belong to more than one. You can also manage Hootsuite’s dark mode settings. On an iOS device, you can also change your timestamp, geotag, and upload quality preferences.

Note: The Hootsuite mobile app uses the time zone set on your device. Post timestamps depend on the time and date settings of your device.

Select an organization

The organization selected in your app settings affects which social accounts you can see when creating posts and viewing scheduled posts in Publisher.

  1. Select your account profile picture , and then select the Account tab.
  2. Select Organizations, and then choose from the list of available organizations.

Note: Inbox has its own organization setting. See Engage with and assign conversations in Inbox.

Change your dark mode settings

Dark mode reduces strain on the eyes in low-light environments and also improves your device's battery life. The Hootsuite mobile app uses the same mode as your device by default, but you can change your app settings if you want to always use light or dark mode.

Tip: Look for dark mode in your device’s display and brightness settings.

Dark mode is available in Hootsuite version 7.0 and later. The minimum OS required for dark mode to match your device settings is iOS 14 or Android 10.

  1. Select your account profile picture , and then select the Settings tab.
  2. Select Dark mode.
  3. Choose your preferred dark mode setting.
