I suggest you ...

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.

        This feature is really needed for all social media managers. Please get this feature to the first line in the to-do list.

        Sarebbe utile avere un alert sonoro sul mobile non solo per twitter ma anche per facebook e altri social network. Inoltre uno spazio per vedere un resoconto delle notifiche ricevute magari suddivise per pagina e/o profilo sarebbe il massimo. Work in progress. ;-) Forza Amici

      • Simone PennacchiaSimone Pennacchia commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Vorrei suggerire di inserire inserire un resoconto delle notifiche sul Dashboard, perchè ogni volta che riceviamo un alert sonoro non sempre è facile notare su quale pagina, profilo dei vari Social Network aperti sia arrivata. Sarebbe davvero molto molto utile e ci eviterebbe di ignorare questi importantissimi segnali. Come sapete la risposta immediata è importante nel nostro mondo.

        Surely this has been reviewed by now? It's a must have feature for Hootsuite!

      • kenken commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        We need pop-up notifications with audio and the ability to turn on/off per stream.
        Notifications should also be active for Tabs in the background.

        I like the sound and browser flash but it only works for the current tab. Can you make the tab flash or something? Missing response time and opportunities. That would be great, thanks.

        I'm currently on the free trial package and are seriously thinking to quit because of this ...

        I hear sound then when i go on hootsuite how to know where is a notification? i have 50 accounts and around 15 tabs i need 15 min to look all that...

        You've been "reviewing" this for TWO YEARS NOW. It's time to SOGOTP. It's getting annoying. It's obvious that people want this feature. Lesser apps like Janetter already do it. Is there a reason you don't bother? COME ON.

        +1 for desktop notifications of new tweets via Growl or something similar, until then I think a lot of us still will be using Tweetdeck solely for this reason.

        Also a full notification displaying all 140 characters, not just the first line or two of text would be highly preferred.

        Thank you!

      • SarahSarah commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Totally agreed - we need desktop notifications as soon as - like others have said I can't be watching Hootsuite all day 'in case' someone tries to interact with our multiple brands, but need to be prompt to reply if someone does - that's the whole point of trying to manage social media accounts effectively. Come on Hootsuite, we need this one!

        This is a must have feature if you have migrated from TweetDeck. This and the inactivity timeout are the 2 things keeping me from being a fan so far.

      • Harold PhillipsHarold Phillips commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        With so many users (like myself) considering migrating from Tweetdeck to Hootsuite, I'd highly encourage you to put this option on the front-burner. Tweetdeck's desktop client's "Pop Up" notifyer was a very useful tool; no matter what I was doing on the computer I'd see "breaking news" in the corner of the screen when it came up. I'd really LOVE to see this added to Hootsuite somehow...

      • Mike GarciaMike Garcia commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Currently under review......... Let's get on with it, people! Don't expect that Hootsuite is so important that EVERYONE sits around watching it for updates! Just implement notifications for every client everyone's asked for, like Tweetdeck does natively, but I'm getting off TD before they close up the desktop / Android versions in May 2013! Feel special I jumped over to HS and get to the functionality already!
