      Hi everyone! Thank you for your continued feedback!

      Our developers are examining Facebook @tagging integration with the Facebook Graph API for possible future updates to HootSuite.

      Thank you all for your continued patience while we work towards improving HootSuite.

    • Add Google+ Personal Profiles

      Many of you have been asking for Google+ profiles to be supported. A great idea, which we'll look into!

        Thanks for all the support of this idea! Google+ profiles are not currently available through their public API but we will continue to monitor the situation closely. Once Google releases this possibility, we’ll certainly look at integrating personal profiles.

      • Add some user options to Auto Scheduler

        I like the Auto-Scheduler concept – I try to only post to our social network accounts about 3 times a day, however, and my first two “auto-scheduled” posts have been scheduled to go up within 45 minutes of each other.

        Perhaps a customized setting where a user can specify a minimum time period between postings?

          Hi everyone! Thank you for waiting.

          As you may have noticed, we’ve recently released some updates to the HootSuite Autoscheduler. These updates will allow for customizing how many posts to be scheduled, what time frame to schedule them in, and what days of the week to schedule them for.

          To find these Autoschedule options, click the gear icon next to the Autoschedule on/off toggle in the compose window or head to Settings>Autoschedule.

          If you wish to learn more, please head to https://help.hootsuite.com/entries/21594338-Scheduling.

          We’ll be keeping this feedback post open to let you know about any new additions to the HootSuite Autoscheduler as they become available.

          Thanks for using HootSuite!

        • I want to be able clear read tweets/status updates that I've already read..

          I'm coming to HootSuite from TweetDeck and it was very useful for me to be able to clear my columns after I'd read/skimmed through my received tweets and status updates so when I next looked at TweetDeck I start with a clean slate and don't have to try to remember/find where I left off in each of the five Twitter accounts, three Facebook fan pages, personal Facebook feed, and two mySpace pages that I manage. I really love HootSuite, but this is a feature that I'm really missing from TweetDeck.

            You are now able to clear read tweets for Home Feed, Mentions and Direct Messages.

            To do so, click the arrow at the top of the stream then select Clear Stream. Once this has been done, you can recover your stream by clicking that same arrow and selecting Restore Cleared Messages. This will clear all tweets currently in the stream and only tweets sent after the time of clearing will appear in the stream.

          • facebook page home feed

            When using a facebook page it only shows the page's feed...

            Would be nice to be able to see the facebook pages HOME feed (of all the other pages this page has liked)... until this is possible I will still need to log into facebook to catch this stream. would love to be able to just stay in hootsuite.

              Thank you so much for your continued feedback. While we haven’t yet prioritized this on our product roadmap, we are always interested in ways that we can further enhance the Facebook integration with HootSuite. Stay tuned!

            • facebook notifications when someone likes or comment on our post etc.

              Notifications when someone likes or comment on our post etc. maybe even a pop-up or just sound would be nice...

                • Offer the option for pop up notifications (especially desktop client).

                  I like the sound notification. But that is only for the live tab. We loose out on what is going on in the other tabs. Especially if we are working on other documents and have hootsuite in the background. A optional notification for all tabs would be great. A optional pop up would be even better. Again...for all tabs. Not just the live tab.

                  • Ability to "Share" Facebook posts within HootSuite

                    Ability to "Share" a Facebook post would be extremely useful for information proliferation. Such a tool would significantly enhance HootSuite's capabilities on data and profile management.

                    • being able to Group Profiles into groups so that you can select one Clients group and it contains all those profiles.

                      We manage numerous corporate companies Social media, and it is a huge problem that we cannot group certain profiles together for instance create a group for a client and that group contains their profiles and when you post you choose that customer group. this avoids mistakes made . This would be a huge benefit for any Social media Company

                        Thank you so much for your valuable feedback. We are currently evaluating this functionality for future improvements.
                        Have you looked at creating two groups by favoriting a set of social profiles? You can then see only the Favorited profiles by choosing ‘favorites’ at the bottom of the drop down.

                      • Combine multiple streams into one column

                        It would be super helpful to be able to create a container stream (column) that could have other streams added to it.

                        In other words, I would like to be able to create a column two which I could assign arbitrary stream sources.

                        For example, I want Home for a Twitter account for a brand, News Stream for a Facebook Page for a brand and a Twitter search related to that brand all in one column.

                        The options for a stream column are currently, "Filter By" and "Delete Stream." What I would see is, "Add another stream..." that would allow…

                        • Recurring events

                          Schedule recurring events from the scheduler without having to do a batch. See Sprout Social's service - very robust and clear reporting, simple user interface for scheduling recurring messages. I would rather upgrade to pro on hootsuite and have this ability here instead.

                            Often I like to follow every tweet from one person exept one topic this person also talks about.

                            For example I want to filter out every tweet that has the hashtag #htc or #android, because these topics don't interest me.

                            Another example: Remove every tweet that is a retweet from @someone I already follow.

                              Right now, you can do this in a search or keyword column by adding the “-” argument in front of the term you’d like to filter. This functionality is not available yet in home feeds and mentions columns, though.

                              I think being able to create Facebook events for each Facebook page from the dashboard would be extremely useful. That way, I wouldn't have to leave my HS dashboard to create and edit events and I could also send links to the events via twitter and other networks.

                              • Allow us to drag and drop sort the social network icons on the top right (the ones we checkmark)

                                It is difficult to to eye scan all the social network icons inside the platform to which I might want to stream a message. It would be TEN times better to be able to sort them from left to right in the order that I prefer. And it would be even better if I were able to add separators (like Firefox bookmarks) in between the set of group profiles. (icons - upper portion of website)

                                  While we don’t have any plans on our roadmap for changing the order of the social network profiles in the social network picker at this time, it is an idea we are exploring.

                                  In the meantime, to learn more about our current social profile picker (and see some tips and tricks for it) head to our helpdesk article at https://help.hootsuite.com/entries/21774775-Tips-Tricks-The-Social-Profile-Picker.

                                  Thank you for using HootSuite!

                                • Add the Twitter 'interactions' tab to the stream so users no longer miss important interactions with their followers.

                                  We constantly miss RT's notices and other interactions with our users since Hootsuite doesn't allow users to import 'interactions' data. Please add ASAP!

                                  • Threaded DM conversations - a la current @replies

                                    Add a "show conversation" button for DM's to match the way @replies work. It's difficult to track conversations sometimes in the current setup.

                                      We’d love to add this feature in the future and are looking into the possibility of this. Thanks for all your feedback!

                                    • add the ability to post to Google+ communities

                                      Will there or is there in the pipelines a way to post/monitor the new Google+ communities via the hootlet and ability to add the stream on the dashboard. Cheers

                                        With the new arrival of Google+ communities, we will further investigate the possibility of adding this in the future. Thank you for your requests!

                                      • create a hashtag recommendation tool based on entered text or often used hastags

                                        Either like the @[suggestion] feature, or a new feature that utilizes entered text or frequently used hashtags, the user will see recommended hashtags to add to post to help us maximize our use of the feature.

                                          On certain mobile apps, there’s an auto-complete feature for hashtags. We’re exploring way to also include this for the web app.

                                        • See followers/followed of other people

                                          I'd like to be able to surf the follows of other users to make it easy to find new people.
                                          This is a main feature of twitter.com.

                                            This may be something to consider when we offer additional functionality on the People section of the dashboard.
