Add the ability to update linkedin groups from hootsuite.
I am the owner of a linkedin group and would LOVE to update group members via hootsuite!
Has there been any changes to the ability to link Hootsuite to LinkedIn Groups? Hootsuite Pro is extremely useful in contacting and managing mulitple Facebook and Twitter accounts. This enhancement would be greatly appreciated....
We need this feature ASAP! Please, Pretty Please. Thanks
Because we use HootSuite to manage social media campaigns, it would be very helpful if we could access a LinkedIn company profile, rather than just the associated individual profile.
It would be great that in addition to updating my LinkedIn profile from HootSuite if I could set up tabs for each of my LinkedIn groups as well and post a discussion from right in Hootsuite.

What I've been missing is that LinkedIn Groups are limited to 200 characters!!

I really don't understand why one day I can post to groups and the next day I can't. The ideal of your product is great, it is just to bad it does not work. I don't think anyone from Hootsuite reads these, but you have a real problem with yoru product.
I scheduled a message to post on my Twitter, face book and linked in page and groups... message got posted on all but didn't work on the groups... I wonder why? I am using the paid account and i have about 15 groups..1, I am an administrator of, others I am a member...
I have created a ticket here, but nobody has responded so I am hoping one of you could help
I just noticed that I can now import LinkedIn groups for updating with Hootsuite but it only shows 10 of the groups in which I belong. Two of them I manage but don't show up in the list so can't add them. Anybody else having the same trouble? I'm on a Mac using Chrome, if that matters."
Same Problem here!!!!
So, as a member of a group I cannot post to those groups? Only as an administrator? If so, this needs to be a feature!! I have begun to find that linkedin groups are incredibly powerful, so this is a must have feature!

I want to add updates to my linkedin groups but NOT to my profile for linked in, is that possible?
Great that you added this functionality, however, it does not work for me. I go to add a social network, select +new social network, select Linkedin and then it tells me that it has to connect with my Linkedin account, i approve, but then I get an error message that says "Could not complete LinkedIn authorization. Please try again."
I have been trying again, quite a lt in fact but you seem to have a bug??
Just added my LinkedIn Group "Veterans In Transition" Thank you HootSuite!
Don - yes you can now add a linkedin group to HootSuite - go to add a social network and select Linked and it will pull up all the groups you are part of and select... Rember if you are using the free version of Hootsuite you can have 5 social media platforms...

I am confused, can you access groups?
This would be GREAT! I heard that it's already available in the Enterprise edition... what gives HootSuite? I'm already a Pro member and paying insane amounts for analytics, give me my Linked In Groups!

I hope this feature will be for group MEMBERS and not just administrators, since on LinkedIn, members are allowed to post to the LI groups as well as administrators.
Please add this feature! This would make HootSuite even more valuable and create a tighter integration with LI.

This is a very important feature that should be added immediately...
The ability to link and post to LinkedIn Groups.....that would be a wonderful time saver!
Yes, please add this feature! It would make Hootsuite so much more valuable to me if I could also use it to schedule Status Updates to my LinkedIn Group.
I am also an owner of a LinkedIn group and I think that this a feature that should be worked on sooner rather that later as linkedIn is trafficed so much and more and more people are setting up group pages - PLEASE EXPIDITE! Thank you.
