Can I sign in to an app with more than one account?
Most apps with app streams will allow you to connect more than one account in separate streams in your dashboard. Some, however, will only allow one account to be used in the dashboard.
Most plugin and content source apps will only allow you to connect to one account at a time in the dashboard.
What is the difference between plugin, stream, content source, and media library apps?
App plugins allow users to send content from their social network streams to partner apps such as Zendesk and Evernote. Plugins are features added to the drop-down menu of each post within certain social network streams. From there, you can select to send content to a partner app.
App streams allow users to bring content from partner apps into the Hootsuite dashboard as streams. Additional tools for the apps are available in-stream. For some apps this includes the ability to publish the content to social networks by way of the publisher tool. The majority of Hootsuite apps have app streams available.
Content source apps allow users to add their existing image repositories to the Hootsuite dashboard to easily add images (JPG, JPEG, GIF or PNG) to social posts and consistently share assets across teams. Content sources can be accessed from the Publisher section of the dashboard and directly from the compose message box.
Media library apps can be accessed from the new Composer to easily access and attach approved media assets to your social posts. Click Open Media Library in the Composer, and then click the Free Images drop-down to access your installed Media Library apps.
Click the Filter by app type drop-down menu at the top of your dashboard app directory to explore the apps with each integration type.
Does the app directory support secure mode?
Hootsuite's app directory does support secure mode. Some of the earlier apps will require an update to fully support it.
