For Pre-Existing Hootsuite Accounts

  • Students with pre-existing Hootsuite accounts should be able to login as per normal and enjoy the advanced features of Hootsuite Pro and access to Hootsuite University.
  • Important note about what email address to use
    • Students must use the email address that was given the first day of class.
    • Do not login using another email address or use Facebook or Twitter.
  • This is especially important if you are using an education email address, as sometimes universities/colleges issue students more than one email with different endings (i.e., @hootsuite.com, @portal.hootsuite.com, @students.hootsuite.com, @mail.hootsuite.com).
    • Only the email provided to DDW (Digital Done Wright) will have the free access.
