Streamnotes Quickstart


Synaptive Streamnotes for Hootsuite allows you to easily save and export Social Media posts to a variety of services and file formats. Save posts to services such as Evernote, OneNote, Google Sheets, Pocket or tumblr. Or, save as CSV or PDF files. Streamnotes is supported in Hootsuite native streams for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. In addition, Streamnotes can be found in many of Synaptive's own apps. Streamview for Twitter, Streamview for Instagram, Streamview for Youtube as well as our RSS reader app, Hootsuite Syndicator, all have Streamnotes as one of their core features.
