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 me to include any other stream that I could otherwise include as its own column.

        Pawel, you're just guessing. It's a bad result if HootSuite simply latches onto your comment for justification to ignore the vast majority who are asking for this. Moreover, HootSuite has never given a technical reason for refusing to include this basic feature (see, e.g., Tweetdeck).

        Again, you're just guessing.

      • Pawel DebskiPawel Debski commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I have just realized that HootSuite may have a serious architectural problem in adding this feature due to basic design choices made long time ago. If it is indeed so no hope in having this implemented soon.

      • AndiAndi commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I want this too. Its a deal breaker to be honest. Especially on the mobile app

      • PaulPaul commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The only thing HootSuite has said about this, in October 2011, is: "We’re considering further ways to allows users to customize their streams."

        2-1/2 years later, nothing. Clearly no interest in customer feedback.

      • AbdulAbdul commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This request is so obvious.. Why would we want to have 20 stream tabs when it can be consolidated into one?? All your competitors have this already! We should be able to select any accounts and display (and filter / search) in a single column.

      • Lori Anne BrownLori Anne Brown commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I totally agree. I would love 1 column where i could monitor mentions for example of all my brands on twitter, etc. Would be a LOT easier than looking at each individual mention column.

      • GodSpongeGodSponge commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I want to see a combined facebook and twitter stream. Especially in the widget.

      • AlexAlex commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I really hope this comes soon. Would make my life much easyer and faster workflow to just have one Home stream for all my accounts.

      • ZamaZama commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        yeap totally agree. merging few streams/lists even from multiple accounts sounds very convinient.

      • PaulPaul commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        So basically, HootSuite has totally ignored this compelling, high-demand feature request for 2-1/2 years. Does the developer department do anything?

      • Julie RussonJulie Russon commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I would also find this feature very helpful. For example, I would like to combine a mentions stream and a keyword search stream into one.

      • KilsallyKilsally commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        No nothing Andre - this has been available on the Tweetcaster Android / iPhone app for ages but have yet to find another mobile app or desktop app that allows you to merge multiple streams of twitter lists into 1 stream so they are in chronological order rather than having to look at each list individually

      • Andre WilleyAndre Willey commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This was discussed 18 months ago, has this been implemented yet? Particularly for the Android app version in my case - I want to be able to have a single widget view showing my main Twitter feed and my DMs in time/date order for example.

      • Alan DayAlan Day commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Tweetcaster app on Android and iphone allows you to view multiple lists combined into one stream - very useful when you have several large lists which when combined goes over the 500 maximum limit - would be great for one of the desktop apps to feature this or indeed merge different social networks into one ffed ie facebook/twitter/google+/linkedin

      • Levi WallachLevi Wallach commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Now that there's an Android Widget this is particularly relevant for me. When going into the app, it's not a huge issue - you've already taken the time to go in and can easily slide between two streams. But with the widget, you either have to stick to one stream, fit two on the page by placing them one on top of the other thus making both very short and cramped, or pushing one to an entirely new screen. Having all of them show up in one area that you can just endlessly scroll would really be optimal here!

        Would be nice to have columns that could contain more than one stream, and consolidate the lot.
