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
Hootsuite is a very good tool, but need improvements!
I use it for facebook groups.
1- Laytout of profile icons at dashboad is bad to work...
2- Much better if it was like check box, with the name of profile at the side.
3- Much better if we could create groups of profiles to publish, it would make the work faster...
This is very important!
Please take a look!!
Thanks and Regards!
In the upper right section of the screen we only have the option to use our favorites social networks by default.
It would be nice if we could create groups px favorites1, favorites 2, favorites and import our social networks in these groups.
Could you add this very useful functionality?
Il will be fantastic if it will be possible to create groups of social network and, in posting, the possibility to select a gruop to post in. Like "pin" but with the possibility of creating various groups.
I'm a team manager of SMMs who handle 3 clients each. I find it hard to sort through their clients' accounts. I hope you can add a feature where we can organize accounts so it'll be easier to view scheduled contents for each team member's accounts.
For instance, I can group Member A's clients into one folder entitled "Person A". So, instead of just the options Favorites in the dropdown, there'll be Person A on there too. With 20+ accounts to monitor daily, it's hard to scroll through the accounts since they're arranged alphabetically.
I'm currently evaluating HootSuite as a SMM platform for our business. Everything is great so far!
We manage a little over a dozen companies for social media services --
Would love a way to group related social services for a particular company together -- tab feels a little too messy.
Send to all and only feeds within a team
make it to where you can seperate your fb groups into categories in case you only want to post to certain ones without having to sort each t
Ability to group and subgroup profiles!! PLEASE!
I am a consulting company that has multiple clients each with multiple profiles. Meaning, Client A has FB, T, LI, 4S and Client B has FB, T, and Li. I want to group the clients together and when I click on them, I see the tabs for each profile. Right now I just have dozens of tabs for each profile I manage.
Add the option of making lists of selected facebook groups.
Thus enabling a Single Click Selected Groups Posting for Facebook. This one feature is not available on other competitors like buffer thus will help Hootsuite gain more traction.
At the moment a person with 200 groups membership with groups in deifferent categories ( Say Beauty, Internet Marketing, Health) has to shortlist specific 50 groups( say all the groups Beauty) related to one category and then publish( Too time consuming)
Instead we have to select a Hootsuite group list that we have created ( Say Beauty) and just publish in them.
- Future editing of facebook groups possible
- Groups can be named ( Making it easier to manage multiple lists)
I would suggest allowing paid users to organize their social networks, for instance the FB Groups by categories.
For instance, I run a Heavy Metal portal (I think we are one of the few using Hootsuite) and we have posts that target better Death Metal Facebook Groups other than Hardcore, Heavy Metal, and so on, by allowing to categorize (therefore associate Groups to specific genres of music) it would ease a lot more the workflow instead of scrolling 10 down to pick just one suitable to share a post.
You can create a GROUP of PROFILES. So, to post something we could choose the group instead several profiles. Lot easier than now, if possible, do this tool ASAP. Thanks
I have many type of facebook page and group's social profile.
Sometime, I just want to post something for certain target group, so I have to select 1 by 1 because HootSuite have only 2 option, "select all" or "select 1 by 1". It's really waste time for those who managed hundred social profile.
Hope HootSuite can add the new feature that can sort the social profile into different groups ASAP, I'll much appreciate it !!
for example, i have 100 social profile, 30 of them are related to healthy, 30 of them are realated to game, 40 of them are related to car.
so, when i want to share something about car, then i have to click 1 by 1 for the 40 social profile that realated to the car.
so far hootsuite can only click 1 by 1 or select all, it's not suitable for me if i just want to post somrthing realated to a target group.
Next to the "Social Media Networks" we select manually after clicking the Hootlet button, that there could be "Group" icons for specific Social Media Networks. For instance, there could be a Group A, which has Social Networks 1,2, and 3... and the next Group B could have Social Networks 2,4, and 5. This would automatically select the Social Networks in that group, instead of having to manually select them (which there's room for human error".
Create groups so that I can organize the companies and industries in one group. This way I can select a group of companies in an industry and post the same message. Oh and sub groups would be good as well so that I can create non competing markets across the country so I'm not posting the same content in the same market for two companies in the same industry.
I'm a member of 50+ LinkedIn groups and would love to be able to sort/group them by subject.
I want to create a list of pages in Facebook or groups and publish there my content in a scheduel way.
For instance when I made a new Youtube video I would to insert it in Hootsuite and than schedule the publisching in this fan pages list in one single shot or in many different shot.
I find it tedious on the iPhone app to have to remember what network is what by their picture, especially when they all have the same picture and I have to look for the little social network icon over the small thumbnail. I manage networks for multiple companies, and I would like to be able to group those profiles together so that it's easier for network selection. For instance instead of seeing a long list of all the networks I manage and finding the ones I need, having the option sort by "Team" and then click the team and have the options of "Facebook", "Twitter", "Linkedin", etc. This would greatly improve my ease of use within the web interface but ESPECIALLY in the mobile app.
It would be GREAT if you could have groups or even tags so you can have different groups of profiles (Like your favourites feature) but set your own groups
I manage 150+ client accounts. Many of them I post to FB, Twitter, and G+. If I could group all 3 of those accounts together, rather than scrolling through my entire list, or possibly even group several businesses, it would take several steps out of every day. I have a hunch I'm not the only one with this need.
As someone who does agency work and Community Manager work for multiple clients, I am given two options. Load every single SM account I manage in to one dashboard, or create a separate Hootsuite account and manage them separately.
The first causes a problem if I accidently choose the wrong SM account from the list, and the 2nd requires me to either login/logout or have different browsers installed to run multiple instances of hootsuite.
At the very to of hootsuite I should have a "Choose Client:" drop down, like Google Adwords MCC has, where I can quickly hide streams of one client and bring up streams and accounts of the other without having to logout.
This would be a feature worth paying more fore.
We can create categories to post to i.e. if we wanted to post inspirational messages we would have a preset category of groups, pages, and networks to post to at the click of a button instead of having to select which groups we want to post to every time.
It would be great to be able to reorganize the order in which social media accounts are displayed in the posting window or with the new social network selector have the ability to save "lists". With using 15 network accounts, it's frustrating having to search through a drop down because a frequently used network is on the bottom. Pins and favorites work, until I have to change the group of networks I want to post to.
I would like to be able to put organizations into groups, so that when I want to send out a tweet i can quickly select a group, and not have to do it individually for each name. is this possible? or is there something liek that already?
I have multiple profiles on my hootsuite pro account and it's really time consuming to select one by one specific profiles where I want to post my message. A great feature would be grouping profile (e.g. Group 1: all twitter account, Group 2: all facebook groups Group 3: linkedin groups)
I manage social networks for multiple companies using Hootsuite Pro. I would love to be able to group my "Streams" view by company, rather than by individual social network, as well as do the same when sending new posts. I would like to click on a group of accounts all managed under one company, instead of having to sort through all of my accounts and select the ones I want.
I think you should integrate grouping of facebook groups. Some of my facebook groups I may not want to post something in. If I can arrange them in groups, it will better utilize my time.
I manage 85 different facebook/linkedin/twitter pages, and I'd love to be able to group the profiles into relevant sub-groups for posts.
Introduce a feature that allows me to tweet different things to different groups of people. I am tweeting on behalf of a business who operate in a number of different markets. What's relevant and interesting to one market may not be to another. We need to keep these separate.
i suggest that hoosuite add a function of grouping the social media pages/profiles..
for example group A is for my website A (twitter,fb page for website A)
and so on..
its it more worth it to get the pro version if this function is added, because its easier to manage it..
We run an events company, so we continuously have to post to different sets of multiple groups, feeds, etc. depending on the target audience. Having a way to save the selections as a set, with a name, would save us hours of scrolling over thumbnails to see the hover text to decide if it's an appropriate group for that event.
I'm sure this issue must be the same for many others who operate in multiple target audience demographics.
It's a small feature, but one that could make life a lot faster for all, I'm sure!
In otherwords, I manage multiple accounts for clients and if I could tag their social networks and facebook groups that would help considerably in updating their accounts.
Instead of having the social networks you are selecting to post to organized by twitter, facebook profiles, linkedin, facebook pages, etc Allow for people to group them themselves if they want to.... for example I have a few different clients with twitter, linkedin, and facebook accounts when posting I post the same content to all three it would be easier if I could organize how I selected people by client vs by social network
If you have a lot of facebook pages, it would be great if you could select group of pages to post to, instead of adding pages one by one. It takes a lot of time to select different pages...
In the box up top to Select the Profiles you want to post a message to, you have a little dropdown box that has two choices;
What some of us power users (me especially) would REALLY like to see is the ability to create a custom list to be added to these choices, so that clicking on this custom list would pull up a pre-defined subgroup of profiles.
For example, suppose I have 100 accounts overall in HootSuite, with 40 of them being from Boston and 20 of them being from Providence. I would create a custom list called "Boston" and attach those 40 accounts to that list, and do the same with the 20 Providence accounts, to a custom list called "Providence". Then, that little dropdown box would have the following choices;
You should really put this in....feel free to call me at 857-200-0998 if you need further clarification.
Add a preset "group of accounts" button when sending a message so you don't need to always select them. I work with many accounts, but I have a set of accounts that get the same message. It be great to have 3 preset buttons on there that I can name, which auto select a preset group of accounts. Sometimes I worry to click on the wrong one, pics are small, etc and this would make it so much easier. I'm telling you, add this feature it will relieve tension from so many people of sending to a wrong account, plus save a ton a time.
The ability to set up predefined groups of two or more social network profiles that would then appear as an icon next to the post text box. Select a group would post the content to all of the selected networks.
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!

Yes, I very much need this feature too!
Al Gibson commented
I agree this will make a huge difference
Any progress on this, guys? Don't want to start considering another tool, but I may have to...
What a basic feature that we need. Ready to start looking for some new tools other than Hootsuite.
Such a badly needed feature it hurts. I spend WAY MORE TIME trying to remove handfuls of clients from a post by hovering over tiny little icons after "selecting all" than it would take to login to a separate account and repost/edit for a particular group. Grouping is a critical function Hootsuite needs to add for me to be a long term customer.
Tiziano Solignani commented
Badly needed if yuo work seriously with social media....
Really need this. Super important feature for those that manage multiple sets of social media for multiple businesses, websites, etc.
Amazing this feature has not been added yet!!!! I have just signed up for a 30 day trial on the Pro account and 5 minutes into setting up my account and social media I ran into this issue! Come on pull your finger out HootSuite of your going to end up losing a lot of customers.
you must solve this issue' its a big problem to almost 100 people who add comment and probably a lot more that didn't
We can't manage our social media as we need to due to this issue
If I manage 40 pages on 15 topics, I can't go over all my pages and select the right one to schedule - it's cussing mistakes that we want to avoid
Hope you will find a solution to this problem quickly or we will have to find another solution
Zacharias Beckman commented
I have something like 35 groups in LinkedIn, plus one group I administer, and then a number of different social network sites across Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, etc. Let's say I have close to 50 different places that I could post to...
HootSuite is a great idea, but without some way to manage all these different places as sets, or by topic, I can't use HootSuite easily. For instance, maybe there are 10 different LinkedIn groups that have to do with businesss culture. I need to pick ONLY those groups when I post on the business culture topic. And it's IMPOSSIBLE to go through my 50 different social accounts in the tiny little HootSuite "post to" window, and pick those 10, then do a post, pick a different set, post, a different set... I'd spend all day just doing this!
HootSuite NEEDS to organize social accounts into GROUPS, so that we can pick a subset of our social accounts to post into. Until then, HootSuite is not usable for my purposes.
Is this still not a functionality of Hootsuite? I haven't been using my account for months because of the risk of cross-posting. I'm thinking I may end up cancelling my account altogether.
Lexi Rosario commented
I was just going to post for this.... I'm in the same boat.... Two groups is not enough, I need to be able to select for example, "company A" and the post posts to all of company A, or be able to select "brand A, B and C" and it selects ALL of the social media profiles attached to that too. It's REALLY annoying having to select EVERY single profile each time, especially since I use hootsuite specifically so I can spend Sunday and schedule all of my posts for the entire week.
Guys, seriously? Look how how long people have been asking for this. It is the simplest thing to implement. I will most likely cancel my trial if this is not implemented. i'm only managing 15 seperate accounts, but for 3 of my businesses.
The chance of cross posting to the wrong account is just too great.
Is this something you are using to seperate the PRO and Enterprise Accounts?
Is there a workaround?
I know this is part of enterprise via teams, but I hope this rolls out to Pro very, very quickly. It is an obvious no-brainer.
Todd Dickerson commented
This feature is so important to the functionality of social media management - I'm stunned it's not here. I've used Hootsuite in the past, and just signed up to start using it for again for client SM management, assuming this feature has been added in the past few years.
It should work something like this - each tab has it's own editable social media profiles. When I move to Client A to Client B, the sites that I post to should change based on that tab.
This lack of a basic, no-brainer functionality makes the service unusable to me.
Steven Sullivan commented
You have a fantastic product but this feature is something that's certainly missing. I read the first feedback request for this and it was closed as 'completed' -- yet it was not actually implemented and the profile picker was born.
The profile picker may be a great asset but complicates a simple solution and much needed drop down with our own personal groups.
Melvin F commented
Please add this simple, yet much needed feature. I also believe that it would reduce the amount of errors made when selecting the proper accounts, esp when there are many accounts to sift through.
I suggest it would be much simpler to have the drop down just list everything in a table of columns sorted by client name, with the ability to click "select all" or even select/deselect individual accounts within the grouping, for example:
-[ ]Client group 1: [ ]facebook [ ]twitter [ ]google+ [ ]linkedin
-[ ]Client group 2: [ ]facebook [ ]twitter [ ]google+ [ ]linkedin
has this feature been created yet? Really need this. The favorites does exactly what we need, but we need to be able to create a lot of different folders for different clients.
Grouping is a much needed feature.
