  1. Have Auto Initial for specific Twitter handles within the dashboard

    Currently, when Auto Initial is enabled, it appends the initials to every tweet from every Twitter account from within the Hootsuite Dashboard. If you have multiple Twitter accounts (business, personal, agency) it automatically appends the initials. It should be you can select to enable the Auto Initial and then select for which Twitter handles it should append to automatically. (personal handle doesn't need initials whereas a business account does).

      This would be a really helpful idea for users who work with both personal and work accounts within their dashboard. We’ll look at incorporating this soon!

    • Perpetual signature posting facility

      Often a page, be it facebook or Google+ is associated with a website. It will be wonderful if the website address or some perpetual message can be auto appended with each and every posting through Hootsuite posting/ scheduling window. It saves a lot of time.

        Interesting idea! Thanks for submitting your feedback!

      • make a distinction between owl.ly links to sites and owl.ly photos, like tweetphoto. owlyphoto.

        It would be nice to make a distinction between owl.ly links to sites and owl.ly photos, like tweetphoto. owlyphoto. So when someone only wantts to see a photo, they arent' concerned about being led to another website.

          Interesting suggestion. One way to tell the difference between an Ow.ly photo and a shortened URL is by the “i” in the URL that designates an image.

          Here is what a shortened URL looks like: http://ow.ly/123

          Here is what an Ow.ly photo looks like: http://ow.ly/i/123

          We do understand that there is a need to make this differentiation more obvious, so we’ll continue to put this idea under consideration.

        • Facebook Date choosable

          Could you make, that the reports from FB Insights can be "limited" by date? I mean, I make a report 1st September, page has 100 likes. I need another report at 1st October saying how many likes we progressed in September but not counting those, that are counting towards October.

          In a short way - I need to see the numeric difference in each of the specified timelines - not the current total with only a % of new likes since the last report.

          I hope you understand me. Thank you for the effort!

            Thanks for the feedback! We’ll look at the possibility of adding this in the future.

          • Make unfollow easier to do.

            Takes too many clicks at this point. Especially for a software that is supposed to streamline managing of multiple accounts.

                • Preserve battery drain

                  It would be appreciated the ability to preserve battery life lengthening the life cycle, and the overall range of the device where Hootsuite works whit a button that can " turn off and on" the app on demand (eg at night), maintaining personal settings. Unfortunately, the app do not allow the "deep sleep" and the device is discharged without being used. Another nice feature would be a skin type "glass" to adapt HootSuite any background.

                      Hi there!

                      If you want to show the original URL, just post the link into the compose message box. It will send with the full URL included.

                      Hope this helps! Let me know if you are looking to do something different.

                        • Allow the app to post Facebook previews, not just links.

                          When I put in a link on my Facebook through the Hootsuite app, the Facebook preview never generates or posts onto Facebook.
                          Only owly link shows, therefore not allowing me to schedule any posts either.

                              • Show cross-list conversations in the lists, not just the Home Feed

                                (Reposted from an old getsatisfaction suggestion.) Sometimes people in different Twitter lists have conversations, but in Hootsuite, these show up only in the Home feed. I would rather each side of the conversation show up in its appropriate list, with the "Show conversation" option opening the whole thing.

                                  HootSuite displays exactly what Twitter’s API sends us regarding Lists. If it does not show up on a List displayed on Twitter.com, it will not show up on HootSuite.

                                  That said, if Twitter’s API ever does show this information, we will make adjustments.

                                  • Include date in hootfeed as well as the time of the post

                                    The time is all that is needed for a single day event. But for a welcome screen, for example, when only posting a few tweets a day, having a date as well as time stamp is really important.

                                      Thanks for the feedback! We’ll look into adding this option in the future.

                                    • ...allow tapping Topbar to open menu/search from anywhere in Hootsuite (Android).

                                      With new upgrade, if I go from Streams into a Stream into a Tweet into a Profile, to get to menu/search I have to hit Topbar multiple times until back at Streams view -- *annoying*.

                                          Hi there! If you click on the ‘like’ number on the HootSuite post, a window will open to show you who likes it. Is this what you are looking for?

                                        • Comment: I am a ONE-person company. I have no need for or interest in the Conversations feature. Please stop assaulting me with info on it.

                                          I resent being assaulted with information about Conversations. I have no interest in it, I do not need or want it, and when I open HootSuite I just want to get to work. All the hype has greatly slowed me down in this session. (Dolphin browser on Nook Color.)
