Quick start guide: organizations

Streamline workflows and seamlessly collaborate between departments, regions and teams with Hootsuite Organizations.

Organizations contain social networks, teams and team members that can be set up to reflect the structure of your company for optimal management of your company’s social media profiles.

When you create an organization, you automatically become the super admin for that organization. Super admins can manage all aspects of their organization including adding and removing team members, adding and removing social networks, creating teams and managing permissions.

The following steps will walk you through setting up your organization.

Step 1: Create an organization

Manage multiple teams and all your business social media needs within one organization.

To create an organization

  1. Select your avatar from the top of the launch menu.
  2. Click Create an organization.
  3. Enter your Organization name, upload an image to represent the organization (optional), and then click Create Organization.

Step 2: Invite members, add social networks and create teams

Click Manage beside your organization name, and then invite members to your organization, add social networks so your members can start managing them, and create teams to collaborate on your social networks.
