There are a couple of ways to add UpContent as a Content-Source in Hootsuite.

Via the App Directory

The simplest way to add UpContent to your Hootsuite account is to follow this link and click the green "Install Now" button.

Via the App Directory inside Hootsuite

Once you have logged into your Hootsuite dashboard, you'll see your account's profile image on the bottom left-hand side of the screen. Click on your image.

From here, click on the "App Directory" button.

This will bring up the App Directory, where you can easily search for UpContent by clicking into the search field and typing "UpContent."

Once found, simply click on "Install App" to add UpContent to your Hootsuite account.

Once installed, you should see a confirmation screen. Click "Finish" to complete the process.

Via "Streams"

Once you have logged into your Hootsuite dashboard, hover your mouse over the navigation bar on the left of your screen.

From here, click on the "Streams" page link to access Hootsuite streams.

This will bring up your Streams page within Hootsuite. At the top of the screen, click "Add Stream"

First, click on "Apps" on the left-hand side of the box, near the bottom.

If you have already installed UpContent it'll show up here, if you do not have UpContent already installed, you can click "Get More Apps" and install UpContent from that screen.

Once clicked, the app should be installed and the confirmation should appear.

Click "Finish" and UpContent is now available as an app in your dashboard.


Within your account on, click on your account name (top right-hand corner) and scroll down to "Integrations".

Within "Integrations" scroll down to "Hootsuite" and click "Install in Hootsuite", this will take you to the Hootsuite App Directory within Hootsuite, click install.

Once you click to install this will automatically take you to your Hootsuite dashboard where you can now add UpContent as a stream.

To add UpContent as a stream to your main dashboard, click the "add streams" button near the top of the screen.

Within the pop-up, click "Apps", UpContent will be located here since the platform has already been installed within your Hootsuite account.

You can also create an UpContent board itself and have the UpContent stream located here as well.

Using UpContent as a Hootsuite Content Source

Lastly, you can access UpContent via the Publisher menu within Hootsuite.

On the left-hand side of your account, click the calendar icon labeled "Publisher".

Within the Publisher menu, click "Content" at the top of the screen.

Scroll down on the left-hand side where you will see "Content Sources".

Click UpContent, and you will see the UpContent platform within your Hootsuite account.

You can start scheduling your content to go to your audience now within Hootsuite! 😀
