HubSpot Updates
In Planning

Hi Community members, 

 

Thank you all for your patience. Earlier this year I notified you that we would have this feature on the roadmap for this year. This is not the update I wanted to share but unfortunately, we have decided to deprioritize at this time due to a larger effort. Our current focus is building out the drag-and-drop functionality in the blog post editor. I do not have a new date for this feature but a few workarounds that have worked for some users are:

 

  1. Add the author names in the rich text area to state the additional contributors and hyperlink their names.
  2. Create an author labeled “Multiple Contributors” and include their names in the description

I know it is not ideal, but we continue to have this on our radar and will update you as soon as this is ready for BETA. You are more than welcome to reach out to me with any questions.

 

Thanks,

Hi Community members,

 

Thanks again for submitting this feedback. I understand you have been waiting for this feature for a while now. Our team is now working on adding this feature to our priorities and hopefully deliver this by the end of this year.  I'm labeling this idea as "In Planning" to reflect that. 

 

Thank you for your patience, and if you have any additional feedback or want to discuss further feel free to send me a message and I'll be glad to schedule a quick chat.

Not Currently Planned

Hi Community members,

 

Thank you for submitting this feedback. I agree, this would be a good feature for the Blog. At this time, we are focused on other projects to improve the blog and the larger content management experience in HubSpot, so I'm labeling this idea as "not currently planned" to reflect that. This does not mean we won't ever build this feature -- in fact, I think we eventually will -- but I do want you to know it's not planned for the foreseeable future. 

 

We're always re-evaluating our priorities to deliver the most value to our customers, and I know this feature will be considered for future updates. We'll update this idea if and when plans change to include multiple Blog authors. 

 

Thank you for your patience, and please keep the feedback coming!

This is great news! Thank you!
If you are going to add multiple blog authors, it would be even more great if you could add a bulk edit feature for old blog posts as well.
A colleague of mine has already suggested a hackathon to manually re-edit all blog authors. But maybe you can solve the issue directly.
