Quickstart Guide for App Directory Developers

This Quickstart provides a simple step-by-step guide to getting started with your first app. We've divided into three sections with clear steps for you to follow.

Create an App

In this section, you'll begin by registering yourself as an App Developer and setting up your app in My Apps.

Add an App Stream

Within the Hootsuite dashboard, users manage tabs that contain streams of information from their social networks (Twitter Mentions, Facebook Posts, etc.). Through Apps, developers can create custom App Streams that users can add to the tabs on their dashboard. This section guides you through adding an App Stream to your App.

Add an App Plugin

App Plugins allow App Developers to extend the set of actions that can be taken on messages within Hootsuite dashboard social media streams. Using plugins, App Developers can allow users to send messages to other business systems, giving the ability to do things such as creating support tickets, generating sales leads, or notifying colleagues of messages via internal collaboration tools.
