  1. Manage Accounts from within HootSuite

    When managing several Twitter accounts with HootSuite, I still have to go back to Twitter and log in/log out with each of my accounts to do some maintenance work that cannot be done from within HootSuite with the convenience of the multi-user support.

    One of those tasks is the maintenance of the profile and settings. I would appreciate to be able to select one of my Profile in HootSuite and navigate through its settings and change them as need be...

    • ADD: a stream for specific Facebook Event Invite Pages

      There's only one reason I have to ever leave my HS dashboard, and that's to monitor my Event Pages. As the countries largest Promoter of Teen Nights (www.fxparty.com), I have to continuously monitor walls of event invite pages, and delete negative comments if needed....it would REALLY be great to be able to do this from inside HS.

        This would be a great addition to the dashboard to allow you to manage event postings from inside HootSuite. Thanks for the request!

      • Show original tweeter's avatar when RT'ing from HootSuite

        When I RT from HootSuite, it shows up on Twitter with my avatar. I think it would be better if RTs showed up with the original tweeter's avatar, like they do when you RT right from Twitter. It gives the original person more recognition/credit that way.

          • reports

            It would be great of you guys could create a live dashboard from the reports we create. Not to be emailed, but to have running live on your screen.
            Similar to Geckoboard, while Geckoboard is not very nice, but potentially also with Social Motus a stiff competition

            • Assigning of searched tweets...

              My team is structured with team leads and then several team members to manage each social account. It'd be great if the team members could perform the searches and 'assign' them to the team lead to make our team more efficient. Thank you!

              • Show draft post photo and title in My Drafts list

                When viewing the My Drafts list, I only see the text. I often just put a link there as a place holder for future content. If the list could display the image of the post (or attached photo) and the title of link (if any) it would be much more useful to the way I work.
                Right now, I have to click the item to see all that; but then, it exits the list display.
                An alternative would be to display the info as a roll-over tool-tip.

                  Interesting idea, that would definitely assist with sorting drafts. We’ll look at adding this in the future!

                • Ability for ow.ly to remove/filter out enbedded location information in images.

                  When uploading images to ow.ly, it would be good if there was an option to hide/remove any embedded location information within the image.

                    • Allow for adding/subtracting social media platforms after updates/tweets are scheduled in Publisher.

                      When I want to post something simultaneously to multiple SM platforms and forget to do it until after I click "schedule", I can't go back and add anything (unless I'm missing something).

                          You can already do this with Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Specific streams display only your messages. We may roll this out with other social networks for a future release.

                        • Scheduling the same post at different times for different social medias

                          I decided to go pro to try the "bulk" messaging folder. I am not seeing the option to post the same message at different times for different social medias. Is this available and I am not seeing it?

                          • Assign individual Facebook comments without having to put the whole thread as a stream

                            Saving an entire comment thread as a stream is impractical at times as it just fills up your dashboard with loads of streams. Would be much easier if you could assign individual comments straight from the main Facebook stream.

                              • Clicking the top blue bar of a stream should take you to the top of it.

                                Some feeds get really busy and full of content and sometimes you just wanna jump to the top to only see the newest. Instead of scrolling up or draging up the side bar, it would be cool to just have to click the top bar (the one with description and buttons all over it) to do that.

                                    • Visually indicate if already following the tweeter or not

                                      When monitor various hashtags and searches I want to know if I am already following the person giving the tweet.

                                      One way of doing this might be to show a tiny avatar of the account that is doing the following in the dead space below the tweeter's avatar.
