Automatically sync tabs with hootsuite web dashboard
Right now you can import your hootsuite web dashboard tabs and settings after setting up the Android app for the first time, but if you change something in your tabs or add new ones it doesn't seem to sync this with the web dashboard and vice versa. It would be great if you guys could sync these settings at any time after changing something.
I would like the use the webinterface to set up the tabs and streams and then use the app on my (android) phone to view content. But also when i do make an adjustment, ie add a search stream, i'd like this to be shown in the webinterface too.
The current "solution" to reset data means everything i do on the phone is lost everytime i want to synchronise with new tabs / streams i've set up on the web.
I have a number of networks and streams setup on my desktop. I'd like to sync those with my Android phone and tablet. It's really frustrating that I have to recreate everything on my mobile devices.
The Android App experience is not as satisfying as teh Hootsuite web interface experience. One of the things that would make it better is to sync them both so that the choice of accounts, tabs and columns would be persistent and automatically synced without user intervention, including the accounts to other services like Facebook and Linkedin.
Your new Android app supports importing your tabs and columns from your web dashboard, which is very cool, but it would be even cooler if those would sync updates made afterwards as well. If you add a new tab or something on Android it doesn't show up on the web dashboard and vice versa.
(Same goes for the iPhone app I guess, but personally I don't care about the iPhone, I just want my Android app set up even better ;) There's a similar idea to this one about the iPhone on the forum as well I noticed)
This is something we’re considering.
Is it implemented by now ? Thks
Are u still considering..
This is not fully synchronous, but now there is the option in the newest android app to manually re-sync your tabs to the web app. Good enough for my use! THANKS HOOTSUITE!
Yikes... the same problem Tweetdeck had...

Same issue. I updated to pro and I figured the mobile app would contain my dashboards. Is there an import feature, similar to a Google reader OPML file to bring in to synchronize them?
Matt Hirschfelt commented
Why is this still not implemented? Seems like fundamental functionality.
Aaron Lintz commented
So this has never been fixed? No wonder I'm using Seesmic for Android
This seems really obvious! Lets change that status to "Accepted" huh?
Come on hootsuite - this is a basic need. I can't believe you've let it lie for a year
What's the point of using Tabs if they don't sync?
This has been open for a year already without being solved?!

I'm going to have to agree with OP Herman...
Okay I just gave 3 votes for this....hopefully you have enough interest to make it happen. :)

Tabs/streams are a major product strength so they definitely need to be synced to my phone. Otherwise I may as well use another social client on my phone.
this is one of hte main reasons ot use hootsuite professionally. without the syncing you cant fully use the program.
Under Review??? This is one of the most important items. My tabs are constantly changing depending on my current interests & trends. It makes hootdroid nearly useless, not having my important tabs/columns synced.
Thorsten Matzner commented
of course we need this. In fact, I was sure that this would be implemented from the beginning. What other benefit is there of using the same client on the phone and the desktop than that the settings are the same?

This request is identical to another. To avoid a split in the votes, why not delete this on and apply the votes to the other?
