  1. Recommendations box on facebook pages

    With the integration of timeline on facebook pages, there is a new box call Recommendations.
    Can you see if it is possible to integrate this feature in hootsuite, so we can monitor all the recommendations sent to our page?

        Allow users to turn owly links into QR codes by adding .qr to the end of the link like the new Google link shrinker (goo.gl) does... or offer the ability to use Google link shrinking within Hootsuite.

          • Highlight New Messages until read

            Something like Chromebird where new messages are highlighted until clicked (or read) that way I can run hootsuite in the background, but know what are the new status updates right away!

            • Allow users to override the dashboard browser auto-detect

              Most web sites which auto-detect the device/browser in use allow the user to choose to use the full web site or a mobile/limited site. HootSuite does not offer such an option for Android Honeycomb/tablet (Xoom) users, and forces them to download and use the sub-par HootSuite Android app. The same restriction is not made on an iPad / iOS, where Safari can be used for the HS Dashboard.

              • integrate stats from YouTube Insights into the Analytics

                YouTube Insights as modules within the Analytics.

                You also need to reduce the prices. They're way overpriced since you can get the same information for free from their respective places.

                  With the new Facebook lists option, I'd like to be able to have a stream only with the news feed for the friends on that list (similar to the way I can do it with Twitter lists)

                    I would like to have a column so I can see when someone writes on my wall or on my page's wall.

                    I'd also like to be able to see incoming messages from my FB inbox and be able to reply to those messages as well.

                      It is now possible to monitor your Facebook wall posts within HootSuite.

                      As for Inbox messages, we’re considering further ways to extend Facebook functionality with HootSuite.

                    • Wordpress to Twitter Integration with Ow.ly

                      The WP to Twitter plugin for wordpress does not support ow.ly. This would be a very welcome feature! Need an ow.ly plugin for Wordpress!

                      • Bring back total sum of clicks for a given date range

                        I need to be able to quickly see the total # of clicks for ow.ly URLs published via my various @accounts. For example, I want to know how many clicks we got between jan 1 and march 1 for a specific @account. Why this feature was removed isn't clear to me. Seems like a basic measure many would require.

                          • Add the option to make columns which are aggregated from multiple twitter accounts.

                            I manage a bunch of different twitter accounts and though hootsuite makes it vastly easier, it can still be a pain to go through all my tabs and check each account for mentions and DMs to respond to. What I'd like to be able to do is assign more than one twitter account to a column, thereby being able to create an overview tab which has a column for all my DMs, a column for all my mentions, and a column for all my sent tweets. If I used hootsuite's scheduled tweet function I would want an aggregated scheduled tweet…

                                I think it would be be great to see a user's entire Twitter timeline in Hootusite.

                                  • allow for different types of file export formats for archives

                                    While it is great that you can export archives as a CSV file, many tweets have commas as part of the message and that breaks the Excel import. Suggest that you allow other delimiters like tab or special characters that you can specify.

                                    • Provide alternative interface layout to support more tabs

                                      I would love a tab format that looks more like email (gmail would be an excellent example). Allow me to nest these tabs as well, and to expand and collapse. This will allow Hootsuite to accomodate more than 20 tabs at the top. Also... when I am in the tab, assume that those are the social media accounts I am posting to.

                                      • Let us see complete list of people who "liked" Facebook page

                                        The Facebook help community is FILLED with people wanting this! Viewers, please help by voting this...

                                        ...I have several people who "liked" my page because I used a service to generate likes... but these people are irrelevant to my page, which makes less relevant people see my posts... I want to take them off my likes, but Facebook lets us only see a few people.

                                        PLEASE create the solution!
