The ZiftONE App Connector is a valuable tool that enables content to be directly delivered into the systems you work in now, saving time, making training easier, and eliminating the need to learn new processes.

Hootsuite is a social media management app that supports network integrations for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and WordPress. Content from social streams can easily be delivered through any of your configured social networks. Hootsuite has over 10 million users and displays content by topic rather than by poster. You might consider using the Hootsuite application if you are currently using Hootsuite and do not want to change your workflow or if you are looking for content that might be beneficial to your followers. Your ZiftONE social streams are available directly on the Hootsuite dashboard which allows for quick and easy posting of syndicated content.

Connecting with Hootsuite allows users to import their ZiftONE social streams to Hootsuite and publish content to the social networks they have set up in Hootsuite. The App Connector is automatically enabled when you log in to your ZiftONE account through Hootsuite.


The Hootsuite connector requires partners to know their Zift credentials. Partners that use Single Sign-on to log into Zift and do not know their Zift credentials will not be able to use this connector.

Before You Begin

A Hootsuite Professional, Team, Business, or Enterprise subscription is required to use the ZiftONE App Connector. A free 30-day trial of Hootsuite Pro is available for new users.


ZiftONE App Connectors do not currently support the management of Campaign Social Posts. If you wish to leverage a campaign that contains social posts, you must turn off your App Connection for the duration of the campaign. Make sure to personalize your ZiftONE social settings if you are choosing this option. Learn more about Campaign Social Posts.
