    • Add a stream showing my tweets favorited by others

      It would be nice to be able to see a stream of my tweets favorited by other users. Push notifications for favorites would be the next step.

          We’d love to add this functionality in the future to update event pages. Thanks for your suggestion!

        • Allow auto-schedule when bulk scheduling posts

          I think the auto scheduler feature is great. Now I'd like this feature available in bulk scheduled items.

          • 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.

            • 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!

              • 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!

                • Post Facebook photo without using the owl.ly image hosting.

                  Sometimes I post images which I like the user to be able to view on the Facebook page without clicking the owl.ly link. It would be great if these images could be uploaded to the Facebook page (with a chosen image folder).

                    We’ll consider this functionality for future releases. Thank you for your feedback!

                  • Add ability to filter out tweets based on hashtags.

                    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.

                      • Create a desktop client for HootSuite

                        If you could create a desktop client for HootSuite (a native one), it would be a real boost to your excellent service.
                        It could be written in something like Qt, so it would become cross platform and also very fast.

                        • Embed YouTube links as playable videos

                          If you post a YouTube link manually it embeds on your Facebook page.

                          Currently, Hootsuite creates a thumbnail image and puts up a text link to a YouTube video instead of embedding it straight on Facebook.

                          This is way less attractive when a user is browsing their feed, so I want to suggest embedding for YouTube (and Soundcloud) implemented when posting links from Hootsuite.

                          • 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…

                            • I wish I could block users from within Hootsuite DASHBOARD, not just contacts

                              Presently, there is no way to block someone from Dashboard without reporting them as Spam. The only way to non-spam block someone is to do so through Contacts, which means they must be following you or you them, and it is unwieldy if you're blocking many people at once.

                              I recommend an option in dashboard beside "Report Spammer" which is simply "Block".

                                  • 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.

                                      Thanks for your patience!

                                          Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us.

                                          While we do not have an official form at this time, you can report any abusive (spammy/phishing) ow.ly content to us at abuse@hootsuite.com.

                                          Thank you,
                                          Travis | Customer Support – Technical Lead | @HootSuite_Help

                                        • how to make ow.ly pictures private?

                                          I have been using Hootsuite to schedule posts on social media. The week before our collections launch, we schedule a series of previews to spark the interest of our customers and followers. Especially due to the space constraints on Twitter, I have been using Ow.ly links for pictures. This morning we found out that customers are able to access all the photo archive on ow.ly and to see all the pictures that have been linked to future posts.
                                          Is there an option on Ow.ly Hootsuite that would keep pictures private until the post goes public?
                                          Thanks!

                                            Hi there. Thanks for reaching out to us!

                                            While we currently don’t have a feature to make ow.ly uploaded images private until otherwise set, this is a fantastic suggestion and we’d be happy to take it under review for possible future updates to Ow.ly and HootSuite.

                                            Thanks for using HootSuite!
