Brandfolder's Hootsuite plugin allows users to find, view, and use Brandfolder assets when building posts in the Hootsuite application. Users inside the Hootsuite app will have a UI to search for and select attachments from Brandfolder, enabling efficient embed of images videos and other media stored in the DAM into Hootsuite published social posts.

Integration Set-up

  1. Search for the Brandfolder integration in the Hootsuite marketplace and complete the installation process.
  2. Create a new post and select Brandfolder from the Media Library dropdown. (need a screenshot of this)

  5. Selecting the Brandfolder will allow you to see all of the assets housed within that specific Brandfolder. You can simply scroll through the assets or utilize the search function to input queries to quickly find the asset you are looking for. More information on search queries can be found in the Searching in Brandfolder knowledge base article. mceclip1.png

  7. The final step is to select your post to location, add text if necessary and select schedule for later or post now. 

Pro tips:

  • Assets utilized in Hootsuite can't be updated through CDN links. Hootsuite transforms the CDN link into a static link once posted.
