    • Offer multiple RSS feeds in the same stream

      I have dozens of RSS feeds and would like to import them all at once using OPML and see all updates together in a single stream - so I can easily see the newest content from a variety sources.

      Thanks

        • Add support for secure connections in RSS Reader module at some stage

          Currently Hootsuite supports secure connections (https://) but the RSS Reader app doesn't, so I need to change from a secure connection to a non-secure connection to use the reader.

          Could you include support for secure connections somewhere down the line? TIA.

          • RSS Feeds should have thumbnail built in, as much as categories and tags.

            The idea will be to stream your blog, stream some other blogs or feeds you are likely to interact with (like, share, repost) and have the ability to pull out Thumbnail image, tags (# will be automated while sharing a post to your twitter account), categories will work the same. FYI some wordpress plugin does it, pull out your blog with proper tags so why not Hootsuite with a stronger RSS feeder?

              • Sorting/grouping RSS feeds - Add more robust sorting features to make more useful tool

                Your app is great. I would suggest that you add more robust sorting or grouping features. I have multiple feeds that cross disciplines. It would be worthwhile to at least view single feed sources one at a time. For instance my e-mail marketing feed have articles and my seo feeds have articles -- but I don't find it useful to see them mixed together.

                • Share a RSS Stream with Team

                  Essentially be able to share the RSS stream you have generated with Team members. Or have an option to export the stream you have created and then allow them to import it. Some way to do this. Thanks.

                  • Create tasks from RSS feeds

                    Many times I'll create a blog article and want to craft a specific message for different channels.

                    I would like the ability for Hootsuite to create a task when it finds a new article on an RSS feed. This way I can craft a different introduction based on where I'm posting the link.

                    • Add a "mark as read and hide" or (x) button for each post

                      Please do it so when we update the feed, we only see new posts in it instead of all the ones previously ridden. Hootsuite's a must-have !

                        I would love to visually see my RSS Articles Greyed-Out after I share them through Hootsuite, so I can keep track of what's been shared already.

                        • My wishes

                          1 . Automatic updating of a news stream is necessary. Now the latest news appear if I refresh all page, having pressed the F5 key.
                          2 . Just appeared news have be highlighted on 10 seconds by other background (for example, yellow). So newest articles are visible.
                          3 . The name of a stream have to be brighter. It is lost against "RSS Reader" inscription. It is better to trade places them.
                          4 . The heading, instead of the source name has to be the first line in each news of their stream.
                          5 . It should be added besides…

                          • Options for different view of the RSS feeds

                            At the moment you can only see the title of each new post in the RSS feed. It'll do, but it would be great if you could customize the view to see the first few lines/paragraph of the actual post as well.

                            Cheers for a great app!

                                Would like to see two things... First, some way to back up an RSS stream. The "X" button is too close to other function buttons ... I accidentally deleted my stream. Only option to restore was to reenter feeds.

                                Also, push the RSS fee stream to iPad.

                                    • allow android users to upload pictures to instagram

                                      Currently the HootSuite app only allows you to post to twitter, facebook, foursquare and linkedin. It would be nice to have instagram listed there too allowing users to post to all these social networks in single go.

                                        • Allow a way to create a feed from a news search

                                          I want to be able to do a search for news (in my case I need blood clot news) and have the news results show up in my reader. I can do this on one of my readers using google news' RSS feature. I can't get it to work here though.
