    • allow a photo to be posted to Instagram from your Hootsuite account

      It seems silly that we can use the Hootsuite interface to interact with Instagram, but not post the one photo to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. What is the point of managing the process of liking and commenting on photos for Instagram, but not being able to use it's primary function i.e. sharing photos

        Thank you all for your interest in this suggestion.

        At this time, Instagram has not opened photo posting abilities to third party applications. Currently the only way to upload an image to Instagram is from the mobile app, it is not even possible from their web version.

        We’ll continue to monitor progress with interest should this feature become available in the future.

        • The option to delete many pictures at once.

          We have to delete pictures one by one and its annoying so maybe there could be a place where u can select the pictures u want to delete and delete them all at one time

          • Add instagram to Hootsuite Mobile app, not just desktop.

            You should permit hootsuite users to post a picture to multiple managed instagram accounts via the mobile app, and not just online dashboard.

              • Timed posts!

                It would be great if an option was added to the final post screen that allowed users to set a certain time in the day for the picture to be posted without the user having to actually do it manually at that time. For example: I set my Post Clock (if they call it that) to 3:45 today and press post. It will give me a confirmation that the image will be posted at the time I selected. And I will be at work from 12:00 till 4:00 and while my phone is not with me, the system automatically does…

                    • Add an Instagram management tool.

                      An Instagram management tool would be useful to many people who do social emdia marketing. It would help to toggle between accounts like Hootsuite does with twitter and allow posting from the mobile app as well as the web platform.

                      • No access for blocked user to your account. Similar to FB's privacy with blocking.

                        It would be great if a blocked user have no way of searching for you in example, on a mutual's friend's likes, comments or @ mentions. Also, it would be awesome if they can't access your Instagram at all. Just like Facebook's privacy on blocking, in which your account is completely hidden from blocked users.

                        • sort and rearrange photos.

                          It would be great if you could rearrange photos that exist in your gallery already. I like all my photos but sometimes don't like the way some look next to each other. and wish I could bring some of my older great photos back to the top of my page without having to repost it again

                          • You should be able to reboom pictures without having to screenshot

                            If you want to have a picture on your account that is on someone else's account you could reboom there picture.There could be a reboom button next to the like button and the comment button.This would be so much easier than having to screenshot someone's picture and then posting it.

                                Gifboom is an app where you take pictures of yourself and you make it into a fast slide show. Instagram would still be the same but with movement

                                  An option for a favorite button, there are millions of people with ridiculous amount of followers and sometimes there are persons you talk a lot too but they disappear in your 50k+ followers so if you can add them to a favorite list you can keep track of those persons more easier

                                    • An easier way to delete your pictures

                                      I think deleting your pictures should be easier. Everytime i delete one picture, it bring me back to the top of my profile witch makes it harder to delete multiple pictures. You should make a "select button" where you can select multiple pictures to delete at once.

                                        • Selecting which photos you want private

                                          Selecting Which Photos you want private, because it is a bummer that if your account is private, so all all of the hashtags on your photos! That would be cool to allow which photos you want private (like facebook), or which photos you allow the hashtags to show up public.
