Difficult Tasks

  • Multiple users per account. This platform doesn't take delegation into consideration. If you want to have access to the data, then you need to purchase licenses for yourself and for the team members that need to be pulling the reports or doing the work. This software was very cumbersome to use in that respect.
  • Pulling reports. Because of the limited number of users and profiles alotted per levels of membership - if you have access to more than 10 accounts/pages/profiles, you'll have to delete profiles individually and reattach them to provide reporting or pay for a large software bill just to leave them attached (doesn't work with social media management).
  • Publishing. After testing multiple media types, we found that Sprout Social would contort or truncate certain types of media. This resulted in us having to use Facebook as a native platform to post. We ended up only using it for reporting.

Difficult Tasks

  • Archiving messages in the inbox can be difficult at times. I receive a large volume almost daily, and sometimes after archiving and clearing my inbox, those same messages will pop up in my inbox later that day. I've also had a situation where I checked my inbox this past summer and had messaged from February that had been previously archived!

Difficult Tasks

  • There is a delay in reporting, especially Facebook. Sometimes it can take up to a week after to get metrics for a full week prior.
  • Understanding the ranking of the Twitter feed, when sorted by certain factors, can be cumbersome
  • Integration with various accounts is smooth, but it needs to work with more than Facebook and Twitter
