  1. Allow reversal of new Twitter API feature which auto-populates user names

    The Twitter API feature rolled out last week removed all stored Twitter handles in one's HS account. Now this feature takes time to search for handles, often doesn't find what you search for, and isn't always accurate. Please remove this feature, or allow for users to return to previous functionality.

      • Add "send to groups" to Hootlet

        Please add the same "send to groups" dropdown that is in the web Dashboard to Hootlet. Currently, when I want to post to multiple networks at the same time, I have to manually search for each social network in a group manually, which is extremely time consuming (and prone to errors)

        • Attach images to bulk uploads / bulk scheduling.

          As images and videos are key to increasing engagement, I don't see much point in bulk uploading scheduled posts (particularly for a specific campaign) if you're not allowed to attached images to the posts as well. If we have to go in and edit the scheduled posts to add images individually after doing a bulk upload, we haven't really saved any time to schedule. Even if the only images we could use in bulk uploads would be ones that have a web URL directing toward them (and not necessarily new files from our local machines), that would still be an…

          • It would be awesome to see Instagram able to post automatically, instead of having to be redirected to the app at time of post.

            Can we have an option to post automatically to Instagram? Instead of being redirected to the app?

            • ow.ly should always pick existing URLs from internal database, not re-generate each time the same URL is posted

              I am looking for Hootsuite to generate a unique ow.ly link, and save that link permenantly, so it will use that same ow.ly every time to shrink that specific url.
              This will help with analytics also, as it will be possible to see lifetime stats for a specific URL.

              • Improve Hootlet

                Hello everyone,

                The Hootsuite Hootlet recently underwent some broad changes in order to align more closely with Facebook's Platform Policy, specifically section 2.3. You can find an explanation of this policy at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/review/prefill

                Due to the nature and urgency behind these changes, we were forced to make some uncomfortable compromises around Hootlet’s behaviour. These changes were broadly applied to all content regardless of the ultimate network being published to as a matter of expediency, not as a design preference.

                Work is currently underway to restore much of Hootlet’s original functionality, while remaining compliant with Facebook’s Platform Policy. The teams behind…

                  Hello everyone,

                  Today we will begin rolling out the latest in our series of Hootlet improvements. The new features will begin appearing for some users at 11:30 AM PDT, and should be available to everyone by the end of the day.

                  This release has the following improvements:

                  - Improved graphical Link Previews

                  - A Live Preview for text-only networks such as Twitter, which shows you exactly how your post will appear

                  - Improved logic for preserving text you typed while switching your target networks

                  - Writing a custom message will now not insert the Page Title into your Twitter posts, allowing you full control over your message

                  - Pasting the link URL into the message box will prevent Hootlet from auto-inserting the link into your Twitter message, giving you full control over where the link appears in your message, allowing you to place hashtags or mentions at the end,…

                • Allow ability to turn off or copy the new Mentions.

                  It's cool that the new Mentions feature pulls social media addresses, but it's not cool that when you copy and paste a tweet to schedule at a different time, it doesn't copy the Mention address. This is totally mucking up my Hootsuite experience and killing productivity. Please add a way for the auto-generated address to copy when you copy and paste, or give us a way to turn it off ASAP. Hootsuite is basically useless to me until this is fixed.

                  • URGENT a backup of scheduled messages!!!

                    Yesterday I lost all scheduled messages for April and streams because of your technical problem while I was transferring all the social networks to related teams. And guess what, there's no backup! Please create something else beside export function. And until now I recommend you to suggest your customers to export their scheduled posts every day!

                    • Auto-complete of usernames for all twitter users

                      Currently Hootsuite only suggests auto-completions for users when @ sign is used to users you have interacted with or been mentioned by in last 30 days. Twitter, however, suggests auto-completions for all users. It would be great if Hootsuite could do this too.

                        • Thumbnails of social media and "posts image" on "Publisher" calendar for visual overview of content.

                          In the "Publisher" we can see thumbnails of social media of our posts only in "List" category, it would be helpful to see visual overview of our planned contence in "Day" "Week" and "Month" categories too. I found that "blue blocks with text" doesn't allow effectivly plan adding extra posts. The lack of visuals makes spend more time on planing.

                          • Export to PDF option for Analytics Reports

                            thank you for providing CSV and XLS exports, but it would also be great to have PDF export formats that I can send directly to my superiors that gives them good visual data. You spent so much time developing the report visuals, it would be great to produce those in reports. thanks.

                            • do away with the "verified account" stuff in the compose-message box.

                              I can't copy/paste Twitter handles into or from one part of the message box to another... have to start from scratch every time I want to "@tag" someone? Really tedious, and was better before.

                              • Put my list of networks at the top of the page, and allow me to prioritize list after I login.

                                Put my list of networks at the top of the page. And, after I have already started logging into networks, I want to be able to prioritize this list. Right now, seems I have to log out, and then log back in, in a particular order, if I want them rearranged. Very labor intensive.

                                And, don't tell me what I'm NOT doing, like collaborating, working with a time, and the like. You're trying to "Help" in a sick way, very manipulative! Take it out!

                                Do NOT prioritize for me!!!

                                • make the new mentions auto-complete a turn on/off option.

                                  The new auto-complete mentions needs to be an option or preference to turn on/off option. So far the suggestions are not accurate, very slow and have made it much harder to simply tweet.

                                  • Autoschedule - multiple time periods

                                    As you know, folks read many of these channels before work, during lunch and after hours. That means I need three separate blocks to allow my auto scheduling. Right now I only can do one large block. That means our lunch and after hours tweets are being done by hand. Total waste of our time. Its an easy add to allow multiple time blocks

                                    • remove the new tagging feature completely and make sure it wors properly before reinstating - it is so annoying and frustrating

                                      It's horrible. I absolutely hate it. It messes up my posts, it gets in the way of things - it won't leave me alone!

                                      • More Customized Times

                                        More customized time options instead just on the 5s & 0s (1:05 - 1:10 etc)-- We needs options like 1:03 and 11:28. Things that allow us to seem more "organic."

                                        • ability to view and create twitter polls

                                          Now that Twitter has launched its new Poll feature, can we see this on Hootsuite in the near future please?
