      Hello everyone,

      Thank you for your feedback and continued support.

      Hootsuite is happy to announce the release of our new @Mentions feature, allowing tagging of user profiles on Twitter and Instagram, and Pages on Facebook.

      Important note: due to API limitations, in order to mention a Facebook Page, the post must be sent from a Facebook Page.

      This means that mentions of Facebook Pages from Facebook Personal Profiles is currently not possible. Mentioning Facebook Personal Profiles from any account is also not currently possible.

      Thank you,

    • Add Google+ Personal Profiles

      Many of you have been asking for Google+ profiles to be supported. A great idea, which we'll look into!

        Thanks for all the support of this idea! Google+ profiles are not currently available through their public API but we will continue to monitor the situation closely. Once Google releases this possibility, we’ll certainly look at integrating personal profiles.

      • facebook page home feed

        When using a facebook page it only shows the page's feed...

        Would be nice to be able to see the facebook pages HOME feed (of all the other pages this page has liked)... until this is possible I will still need to log into facebook to catch this stream. would love to be able to just stay in hootsuite.

          Hello all,

          We thank you for your on-going patience as we continue to investigate different possibilities to view and manage home feeds for Facebook Pages.

          Your feedback is much appreciated and we do hope to see this in the future.

        • Add some user options to Auto Scheduler

          I like the Auto-Scheduler concept – I try to only post to our social network accounts about 3 times a day, however, and my first two “auto-scheduled” posts have been scheduled to go up within 45 minutes of each other.

          Perhaps a customized setting where a user can specify a minimum time period between postings?

            Hi everyone! Thank you for waiting.

            As you may have noticed, we’ve recently released some updates to the HootSuite Autoscheduler. These updates will allow for customizing how many posts to be scheduled, what time frame to schedule them in, and what days of the week to schedule them for.

            To find these Autoschedule options, click the gear icon next to the Autoschedule on/off toggle in the compose window or head to Settings>Autoschedule.

            If you wish to learn more, please head to https://help.hootsuite.com/entries/21594338-Scheduling.

            We’ll be keeping this feedback post open to let you know about any new additions to the HootSuite Autoscheduler as they become available.

            Thanks for using HootSuite!

                Hello everyone. Thank you for your feedback.

                While we do not have this feature at this time, we are looking towards the possibility of getting it on our features roadmap for future updates to the Hootsuite web dashboard.

              • Ability to "Share" Facebook posts within HootSuite

                Ability to "Share" a Facebook post would be extremely useful for information proliferation. Such a tool would significantly enhance HootSuite's capabilities on data and profile management.

                  Thanks for the suggestion!

                  We’ll keep an eye on Facebook’s API and look into the possibility of implementing this in the future.

                • Hootsuite for Windows & Windows Phone

                  We want Hootsuite to be issued for Windows & Windows Phone as Universal App, Since Windows Phone alone has over 50 Million Active users, and we want a very good Twitter Client Such as HootSuite.

                  Please take our Request in Consideration.

                  Thanks In Advance,

                  • Offer the option for pop up notifications (especially desktop client).

                    I like the sound notification. But that is only for the live tab. We loose out on what is going on in the other tabs. Especially if we are working on other documents and have hootsuite in the background. A optional notification for all tabs would be great. A optional pop up would be even better. Again...for all tabs. Not just the live tab.

                      Schedule recurring events from the scheduler without having to do a batch. See Sprout Social's service - very robust and clear reporting, simple user interface for scheduling recurring messages. I would rather upgrade to pro on hootsuite and have this ability here instead.

                      • Combine multiple streams into one column

                        It would be super helpful to be able to create a container stream (column) that could have other streams added to it.

                        In other words, I would like to be able to create a column two which I could assign arbitrary stream sources.

                        For example, I want Home for a Twitter account for a brand, News Stream for a Facebook Page for a brand and a Twitter search related to that brand all in one column.

                        The options for a stream column are currently, "Filter By" and "Delete Stream." What I would see is, "Add another stream..." that would allow…

                          I think being able to create Facebook events for each Facebook page from the dashboard would be extremely useful. That way, I wouldn't have to leave my HS dashboard to create and edit events and I could also send links to the events via twitter and other networks.

                                    We’d love to add this functionality in the future to update event pages. Thanks for your suggestion!

                                      Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us!

                                      While we don’t have plans for this on our roadmap at this time, it is a great suggestion for future implementation.

                                      Thank you for using HootSuite!

                                    • add functionality to reschedule a previously scheduled message.

                                      It would be helpful to click a "reschedule" button for a past scheduled message instead of needing to copy/paste the old text. We have been using HootSuite for one week and already have found ourselves wanting this functionality several times.

                                      • Add a stream showing my tweets favorited by others

                                        It would be nice to be able to see a stream of my tweets favorited by other users. Push notifications for favorites would be the next step.

                                          Hello everyone!

                                          While the current version of the API does not allow for this integration, we will continue to consider this in future updates when a newer version is released to us.

                                          We thank you for your on-going patience and appreciate your suggestion!

                                          Best regards,

                                          Paige @Hootsuite_Help – http://hootsuite.com/help

                                        • Add ability to filter out tweets based on hashtags.

                                          Often I like to follow every tweet from one person exept one topic this person also talks about.

                                          For example I want to filter out every tweet that has the hashtag #htc or #android, because these topics don't interest me.

                                          Another example: Remove every tweet that is a retweet from @someone I already follow.

                                            Right now, you can do this in a search or keyword column by adding the “-” argument in front of the term you’d like to filter. This functionality is not available yet in home feeds and mentions columns, though.
