    How can Hopscotch benefit me?

    The answer is simple: Hopscotch will save you time!

    We noticed, like many others, that we were spending too much time doing the same thing over and over again on social media, and that most of this time was spent on repetitive tasks that could easily be automated – so we built Hopscotch.

  • Billing

    Are payments secure?

    At Hopscotch, we take payment card security extremely seriously. Every business involved in processing, storing, or transmitting credit card data must adhere to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. Hopscotch has always been PCI compliant and that extends to all payments processed via our systems.

    All payments collected through Hopscotch are processed by Stripe, a PCI Level 1-certified service provider backed by both Visa and American Express. In connection with the processing of such payments, your financial information such as credit card numbers is provided directly to Stripe and never reach our servers. This approach makes sure that your card is processed safely and securely.

    Stripe is used by millions of businesses as their payment processor. This includes Amazon, Google, Spotify, Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, Postmates, TaskRabbit, Shopify, Salesforce, Airbnb, Kickstarter, Slack, Target, Yelp, and Facebook. In fact, 84% of U.S. adults have purchased something via Stripe. So, if you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’ve already made a purchase via Stripe (even if you didn’t know it).

  • Analytics

    Statistics are gathered starting on the day when you add your social media account to Hopscotch. You can only see the statistics for the days that we gathered statistics.

    back to top
    How are the statistics gathered?

    Statistics are retrieved when you add your social media account to Hopscotch and then every 30 minutes thereafter. The maximum values for the day are saved for viewing in the analytics graph.

    back to top
  • Scheduling

    Can I schedule posts to repeat every day or week?

    Yes, you can do this by clicking Repeat when scheduling a post, or by creating a Recurring Posts List for more advanced options.

    back to top
    How are Recurring Lists different than repeating a scheduled post?

    If you want to send out a single post daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly; using the Repeat feature when scheduling a post is your easiest option. You can even set a custom interval for those periods, or choose the days of the week you want the post to repeat.

    If, however, you want more advanced options, such as sending out a different post each time from a list of posts or posting more frequently, you can do this (plus much more) by creating a Recurring Posts List on the Recurring Lists page in Hopscotch.

    back to top
    What is a Recurring Post List?

    A Recurring Posts List allows you to create a list of posts to send according to custom options. Currently, you can set the following rules:

    • The time of day when posts are sent out from this list.
    • The days of the week posts will be sent from this list.
    • The percentage of posts (starting from the end of the list) that the next sent post will be randomly selected from.
    • The minimum number of minutes that must pass between the posts which are posted from this list.
    • The minimum number of days that must pass before a post can be sent again.
    • The maximum number of times in a day in which posts will be sent from this list.
    • The text to be added to the end of posts before they are sent. (Tags will be added until there is no room left.)

    If you think of any other condition you would like added, please let us know.

    back to top
    How do I create a Recurring Post List?

    To create a Recurring Posts List

    1. Click Recurring Lists to go to the Recurring Posts Lists page for the social media account that you want to set up recurring posts for.
    2. Click on Create New and enter a name for this list that will help you identify it later (i.e. Favorite Quotes).
    3. Select the Post Times for when you want posts in the list to be sent out.
    4. Next, set up the conditions to define exactly how and when posts in the list will be sent out.
    5. Then click on Save Settings to save your newly created list settings.

    You can now add posts to your list by clicking on the Add Post button.

    back to top
    How do I edit my Recurring Post List?

    In the Recurring Posts Lists page, you should see the name of the list you want to edit. To go to the page where you can add or edit posts in the list, just click on its name. To edit its settings, click on the icon to the right of its name. To delete the list and all of the posts in it, click on the icon to the right of its name.

    back to top
    What does the Randomness Condition do?

    The Randomness condition allows you to send out posts in your Recurring Posts List in a random fashion. The Randomness number represents the random factor (percent) for selecting the next post to send out from the end of the list of posts.

    For example, with it set at 25 percent - if you had 100 posts in the list, the next post would be selected from the last 25 posts in the list. (The last posts meaning the posts sent the longest time ago.)

    If you set the Randomness to 100 percent, then the next post would be randomly selected from all posts in the list.

    Needless to say, any other condition you set up in your Recurring Posts List will be applied when selecting the next post.

    If you remove the Randomness condition, then the next sent post will be the last one in the list (the post sent out the longest time ago).

    back to top
    How frequently can recurring posts be sent out?

    Recurring posts can be sent out as often as every 15-30 minutes. If you want posts to be sent out less frequently, add the Minimum Interval condition to your Recurring Posts List settings with a value greater than 15 (minutes).

    back to top
    What time zone is used?

    When you schedule a message, the scheduled time you see is using the same time zone that is used on your device's system clock. For example, if you schedule a post to be sent out at 2 pm, it will be posted when your system clock says 2 pm. (This works because technically when the scheduled post is sent to our server, it is first converted to an epoch. An epoch is the number of seconds that have passed since 1 January 1970 00:00:00 UT/GMT.)

    The only exception is with Recurring posts. The Recurring lists use the time zone you set in your Admin Setting in the Hopscotch dashboard.

    back to top
    How do I bulk import posts?

    You can bulk import Scheduled or Recurring posts by clicking on Import located near the top-right of the Scheduled page or the Recurring Posts Lists Items page. You can then select a CSV (Comma Separated Values) file to import.

    For Scheduled Posts, the format of the CSV file is the following, in this order:

    Scheduled date and time to post, Comma, Text to post wrapped in double quotation marks

    Then make a new line for the next post.

    For example:
    31/01/2021 17:03, "This is your first post."
    31/02/2021 18:03, "This is your next post."

    For Recurring Posts Lists Items, the format of the file is simply one post per line wrapped in double quotation marks.

    For example:
    "This is your first post."
    "This is your next post."

    Note: If the text you want to post contains double quotation mark(s), replace all double quotation marks with two double quotation marks together to escape them.

    For example, if you want to put double quotation marks around the word "first" in the previous example, the line in the CSV file would look like this:
    "This is your ""first"" post."

    back to top
    How do I bulk export posts?

    You can bulk export scheduled or recurring posts by clicking on Export located near the top-right of the Scheduled page or the Recurring Posts Lists Items page.

    You can also select which posts to export by clicking on Toggle Select and clicking on the posts you want to export before you click on Export.

    back to top
    How do I bulk delete posts?

    To bulk delete scheduled or recurring posts:

    1. Click Toggle Select located near the top-right of the Scheduled page or the Recurring Posts Lists Items page.
    2. Next, select the posts you want to delete by clicking on them, or click Select All located near the top-left of the page.
    3. Once you have selected the posts you want to delete, click Delete Items located near the top-left of the page.
    4. If you are sure you want to delete the posts you have selected, click Yes, Delete in the window that pops up.
    back to top
    Why was there an issue sending my scheduled post?

    If Hopscotch is unsuccessful at sending a scheduled post to your social media account's timeline, a few things will happen:

    • We will send you an email notification indicating which of your scheduled posts failed and the reason why. (See note below on toggling email notifications.)
    • In your Hopscotch dashboard, you will also see a icon located near the bottom-left of your post. You can click on it to learn why the post was unsuccessful.
    • If your post is a one-time scheduled post, it simply gets disabled.
    • If your post is a scheduled post that repeats, it simply gets rescheduled to the next time it is suppose to repeat.
    • If your post is part of a Recurring Posts List, it will act as though it was posted (in terms of when it is selected to be posted again from that list).
    • If your post is from an RSS Feed, Hopscotch will still attempt to post new items from your feed at the next check. However, feeds can become disabled after five consecutive failures.

    If you believe the issue is a bug in our system, please do not hesitate to create a support ticket so we can fix it.

    Note: If you wish to change whether we notify you about this and other issues, go to your Hopscotch account's Email Frequency Settings page, (un)check the box beside Alerts, and click Save Settings.

    back to top
    Why are my recurring items not posting?

    The most common reason for recurring items not being posted is that the item being posted is a duplicate of a previous post. Most social networks do not allow you to post content that is the same as your previous post, or any of your posts within the last 24 hours.

    Also, items in your Recurring Posts List will not be posted until 15 minutes after you create a new Recurring Posts List or update its settings. This allows you to tweak the list settings before it takes effect.

    Of course, if you believe this is not the case, please create a support ticket so we can look into it.

    back to top
  • Feeds

    Can I set up automatic posting from an RSS feed?

    Yes, you can do this by adding your feed to the Feeds page of your social media account in the Hopscotch dashboard. This allows you to post any new items from any RSS feed, according to custom options. Currently, you can set the following conditions:

    • RSS Feed URL
    • Hours between checks
    • Post the next article instead of the latest one.
    • If the feed contains an image, send it with the post.
    • Include the article description in the post, even if the post is over 83 characters before.
    • Text to be added to the top of posts before they are sent.
    • Text to be added to the bottom of posts before they are sent.
    • Hashtags to be added to posts before they are sent.

    If you think of any other condition you would like added, please let us know.

    back to top
    What does the Post Next Article Condition do?

    The Post Next Article condition determines which article to post if there is more than one new article since the last time we checked your feed.

    If you add the Post Next Article condition, the article that comes right after the last one we posted is selected instead of the newest article in your feed.

    back to top
    How is the Add Hashtags Condition different than the Append Text Condition?

    If the post contains the hashtag (without the "#"), a "#" is added to it in the post text.

    If the post does not contain the hashtag (without the "#"), the hashtag is added to the bottom of the post, if there is room left.

    back to top
    How often are feeds checked for new items?

    Normally we check a feed every 15 minutes. If you prefer that we check less often, you can add the condition to select how many hours between checks.

    back to top
    How is a feed item converted into a post?

    The feed item is first converted from HTML to text. If the More Text condition is added, or the title of a feed article, including the prepended message, is fewer than 84 characters, Hopscotch will also include the article description in the post. If the RSS text and title exceed max characters allowed for the social network you are posting to, it will be truncated with "…" in the post.

    back to top
    Why is my feed disabled?

    Feeds can become disabled if Hopscotch searches for new content and experiences five consecutive failures, such as being unable to reach the server, or being unable to validate the content of the feed. To give your server time to recover, after each failure the interval that we next check your feed is increased by 15 minutes, until a success check is processed.

    back to top
    I added my feed so why hasn't anything been posted?

    Content already pulled into an RSS feed before it is connected to Hopscotch will not be retroactively published.

    New items must have a publish date newer than anything posted from the last interval.

    New items also must have a different title and different GUID or Hopscotch will think they are the same post and ignore the article.

  • Relationship Management

    What does the relationship management feature offer?

    Our relationship management feature tracks your followers and the users you follow, allowing you to view different types of relationships as well as when they happened. For example, for Twitter, you can view the following types of relationships:

    • Users you are following
    • Users you unfollowed
    • Users you are following that are not following you
    • Users following you
    • Users that unfollowed you
    • Users that are following you that you are not following
    • Users you are following that also follow you

    The relationship management feature is available for all paid plans.

    back to top
    How often are relationships updated?

    We update your relationships with the current information from social media approximately every 15-30 minutes.

    back to top
    Can you track my relationships if I have millions of followers?

    back to top
  • Retweet

    Can I automatically retweet tweets?

    Yes, you can do this by creating a Retweet group. This allows you to automatically retweet tweets according to custom options. Currently, you can set the following conditions:

    • Terms to retweet (#hashtags, @mentions, keywords, phrases).
    • Whether to retweet just your followers, people you follow, or everyone.
    • An exact phrase that tweets must contain.
    • Keywords that tweets must not contain.
    • The maximum number of times in an hour to retweet.
    • Only retweet one tweet per user within an hour(s) period.
    • Do not retweet users blocked by any of your accounts.
    • Tweets must not be in reply to another tweet.
    • Do not retweet possibly sensitive tweets.
    • Tweets must not contain explicit language.
    • The maximum number of hours ago of tweets.
    • The minimum number of days ago of tweets.
    • The minimum amount of times a tweet must have been retweeted.
    • The minimum amount of times a tweet must have been favorited.
    • The maximum number of hashtags allowed in the tweet.
    • The maximum number of mentions allowed in the tweets.
    • The maximum number of URLs allowed in the tweets.

    If you think of any other condition you would like added, please let us know.

    back to top
    How do I auto-retweet tweets from specific users?

    You can automatically retweet tweets from specific users by using Twitter's Standard Search Operators.

    For example, if you want to retweet tweets from @HopscotchSocial and @BlueFidelity, under Retweet Terms, you would type in:
    from:HopscotchSocial OR from:BlueFidelity

    You can also auto-retweet users belonging to a specific Twitter list. For example, to auto-retweet tweets from members of our list called Retweet Groups, you would type in:
    list:HopscotchSocial/Retweet-Groups

    Or you can just use the list number, like this:
    list:1261440691663765504

    To see more operators and examples of advanced search queries, click here.

    back to top
    What does the number refer to beside Auto Retweet in the membership plans?

    The number beside Auto Retweet in the membership plan refers to how many retweet settings you can create.

    For example, if you want to retweet every time someone uses the hashtag "#hopscotch", it would count as 1.

    This number is also per account, so if you add 2 twitter accounts, you can set up 10 retweet settings for each twitter account if 10 is the limit for your plan.

    back to top
    How many retweets do I get for my plan?

    The number of auto-retweets is the same for every paid plan, which is roughly 8 retweets every 15-30 minutes.

    We set a maximum limit on retweets because we found that if accounts retweet more often, Twitter treats them as spam.

    Retweets are also spread out over a 15-30 minute period.

    back to top
    Can I auto-retweet just my followers, if I have millions of followers?

    Yes, if you specified to retweet only your followers - we will retweet your followers, and even your new followers, and even if you have millions of followers. The same applies if you specify to retweet only users you follow.

    back to top
    Why are my terms not auto-retweeting?

    The first time you create settings to auto-retweet terms, or if you update your auto-retweet settings, it can take anywhere up to 30 minutes before you see the auto-retweets begin. After this period, retweets will happen steadily.

    We also have some restrictions on who will be auto-retweeted in order to prevent spam. These restrictions appear on recently created twitter accounts, accounts with little to no followers, and accounts following an excess number of users in comparison to the amount of people following them.

    Of course, if you believe this is not the case, or wish us to change any of these restrictions, please create a support ticket and let us know.

  • Team Management

    Can I grant someone else access to my social media account(s)?

    Yes, you can grant access to your social media account(s) with our Team Management feature. With team management you can do the following:

    • Add any desired team members.
    • Decide exactly what social media account(s) they will have access to.
    • Change the level of permissions you grant.
    • Revoke permissions of a team member at any time.

    What exactly can a team member do?

    Team members have no access or control of your main Hopscotch account. They will only be able to access and perform actions on the social media account(s) you grant them permission to use. When you grant them permission to use your social media account(s), these accounts will show up in their Hopscotch dashboard. However, they will not be able to enable/disable, link/unlink, or grant login access to any of your social media accounts. Basically, they cannot perform any action you can perform on the Manage Accounts page with any of your social media accounts you share with them.

    What if a team member is on the free plan?

    The features of your membership plan (the team's admin) will be reflected on the social media accounts you share with team members. It does not matter what type of plan they have. In other words, if a team member is on the free plan, they will have access to the same features that you have with the social media account(s) you share with them. Also, the social media account(s) that you share with them will not count towards their membership plan's social media account limit.

    How do I accept an invitation to join someone else's team?

    If you have been invited to join another user's team, you will see a Team Membership Pending message at the top of the Team Management page in your Hopscotch dashboard. Click on the Accept link and then on the Accept button in the confirmation dialog that pops up.

    back to top
    What happens when I accept an invitation to join a team?

    When you accept an invitation to join someone else's team, you will be added as one of their team members. That will only allow them to share their social media accounts with you, and not the other way around. In other words, they will not have access to any part of your Hopscotch account, including any social media accounts you have added to your Hopscotch dashboard (now and in the future). In order to share your social media account(s) with them, you would have to add them as a team member on your Hopscotch account.

    After you accept an invitation to join someone else's team, the social media account(s) that have been shared with you will show up in your Hopscotch dashboard. For these account(s), you will have access to the same membership plan features as the person who invited you to join their team.

    Also note, the social media account(s) that have been shared with you will not count towards your membership plan's social media account limit.

    Do you have an uptime guarantee?

    Yes, we have a 99.9% uptime guarantee.

    Our infrastructure is built to provide 100% uptime without unforeseen circumstances. During server upgrades, maintenance or simple reboots, requests and services are automatically moved to our other servers without any downtime or interruption of services.

    However, since our services rely on the uptime of third-party services not under our control, our uptime guarantee does not include the downtime of those services.

    Why the name Hopscotch?

    Good question! We chose the name Hopscotch for two reasons:

    1. Our dashboard allows you to “hop” between your social media accounts effortlessly.
    2. Hopscotch is the name of a much-loved game that is easy to learn. We strive every day to make our social media management platform as easy to learn and use as possible.
