How do I switch to using Synapfeeds?

Have you hit the maximum number of feeds you can automate with Autopublisher? Adding more is easy by switching to Synapfeeds. To switch to Synapfeeds, you must first uninstall the Autopublisher app in Hootsuite by following these steps:

1. First, click the Install Hootsuite apps link in the left menu:


2. Search for Autopublisher, and move your mouse to the Installed button:


The button  will change to Uninstall:


3. Finally, click the Uninstall button, and you have finished uninstalling the app. 

NOTE: Your feeds will be paused when you delete the Autopublisher app, but they will not be deleted. After you have installed Synapfeeds, you will have to restart your feeds.
