What is SocialPilot?
SocialPilot is an advanced service that aims to help automate and schedule social media on a large scale. This tool allows you to integrate and automate all your accounts through a single SocialPilot account. Launched in July 2014, its latest developments have been in tandem with the suggestions and needs of its customer base.
It is a well-known fact that any assignment, project, or task will work better if planned in advance. A schedule can always help you get ahead and help you keep track of what you are doing. Scheduling may require some immediate effort, but its benefits will be evident in the long run.
This problem was the motivation behind the features of SocialPilot. Now you can schedule posts on social media within minutes. For you, it will be a changing entity. Plan out a schedule for updates in advance, and slip in some real time posts as well.
One prime reason for SocialPilot’s popularity is its user-friendly interface. Too many posts on one screen usually suffocate the users, causing many dilemmas. Unfortunately, few tools focus on this specific problem, but SocialPilot is your savior.

SocialPilot enables you to filter your posts and lets you see only what you want to see. You can select an account and scroll through the posts for that particular account. If you want a clearer view, you can even choose a customized group to ensure you find what you are looking for.
Social Media Calendar
The planner embedded in the SocialPilot allows you to see your entire marketing and social media strategy at a glance. It gives the exact date and time of when your relevant posts are going out and lets you modify them accordingly.
You might find your calendar sparse in some places and more crowded in others, but you do not have to edit each slot one by one. Simply drag a post from a particular day to another day.
You can lay out posts for the next day, week, or month and track what is going on. Plans across multiple accounts can be accessed easily and on a small-scale daily or weekly view or on a large-scale monthly view.
You might have shared your personal social media account with friends or family, and your business could entail you to do the same with your colleagues to ensure that there is no interruption in your publicity and posting. To that effect, SocialPilot has introduced Team Collaboration.
Team Collaboration is an efficient way for small and medium scale businesses, PR agencies, and team dependent organizations to share content effectively. SocialPilot allows users to delegate responsibilities to their team members as a manager or a content scheduler.
Account owners have supreme control and can add and delete social media accounts as well as team members. Managers have overall control over the posts but cannot delete the accounts connected by the account owner. Content schedulers have limited access and can only add posts to the queue, which will be posted only after approval from either the manager or the owner.
