Use boards to organize your streams

Boards provide a way to organize or categorize your streams. Boards act as containers that you can use to organize streams by topic or keyword, or to keep track of competitors. You can add up to 20 boards, and each board can hold up to 10 streams.

Add, rename, or delete a board

You can name and rename boards to help you stay organized. You can also move boards by dragging them to change their order.

Go to Streams, and do one of the following:

  • Add a board - Select New board , enter a board name, and then press ENTER.
  • Rename a board - Select the board name, enter a new name, and then press ENTER.
  • Delete a board - Select Delete (X) next to the board name, and then select OK. Deleting a board permanently removes the board and its contents from Hootsuite.

    Deleting a board in Streams by selecting the X

    Important: Deleted boards and their contents cannot be retrieved, only re-created.

Rearrange streams

Within boards, you can change the order in which your streams appear by selecting and dragging them.

  • Go to Streams, select and hold the name of a stream, and drag it to the left or right.
