  1. New Streams Feedback

    I was surprised this morning to see I had been automatically moved to the new streams - the GUI is horrible, especially for twitter. It's so segmented - twitter is supposed to be a flowing stream, not segments. I REALLY preferred the old streams. Please allow me to switch it back.

    • Bundle feeds from several Facebook pages into one stream

      Now that Facebook is retiring interest lists (sigh..), could you look into bundling feeds from several Facebook pages into one stream? That would in effect revive interest lists. I have a number of news media clients using Hootsuite dashboards who are very eager to implement this.

            • Enable Plussing of Posts on Google+

              Right now, it's possible to comment on Google+ posts, which is great, but we're still not able to "plus" a comment (the equivalent of liking on Facebook or Twitter). That's a big part of engagement on Google+ and without it, the Google+ stream is way less useful. I've confirmed that plussing is part of the Google+ API, so it should definitely be possible.

              • Tagging photos on Twitter

                It would be great if we could tag users in pictures for Twitter, instead of having to mention them in a tweet.
                Mentions use up valuable characters and if you're tweeting a picture to a number of different users, then your 140 characters get used up super quickly.
                If we can tag users in photos on Twitter, it only makes sense that we should be able to tag via Hootsuite as well.
                Come on Hootsuite, make it happen please and thanks!
                *I've seen a few suggestions on this already, but thought I'd make a fresh one.

                  • The ability to pin a day/date when sechudling

                    The ability to pin a day/date instead of having to constantly click the calendar when scheduling. At the end of the month, when the month ends on a Friday, scheduling Twitter is an absolute pain because it requires an additional click of the month over, even though it might be 11pm at night on the 31st. If you could drop a pin in the day/date, or even on the time :20/:30/etc it would speed up scheduling immensely.

                    • scheduled Facebook event posting

                      I was told event post scheduling wasn't available due to limitation with the Facebook API, but other apps do it. My pro account of Hootsuite would be infinitely more valuable with the ability to schedule event updates so I can focus on interaction with guests more.

                      • Automatically identify, filter, and report harassement much like a spam filtering tool

                        I dream of a harassment prevention tool that treats misogynistic, racist, hate-filled tweets as if they were junk mail and files them away to be dealt with... if one chooses. The ideal tool would:

                        - Automatically identify tweets for "quarantine" based on obvious racist, sexist, violent, and harassing language.
                        - Filter “quarantined” tweets into a separate timeline that is only accessed if the victim chooses.
                        - Automatically block the offender from viewing the victim’s profile and engaging them in any way.
                        - Remove "quarantined" tweets from all timelines except the offending users own timeline and profile.

                        And support tools that…

                          • Support for the facebook multilingual composer

                            We're using the native facebook multilingual composer for our page (http://www.theverge.com/2016/7/1/12062116/facebook-multilingual-composer-language-translation), but we do not use the auto-translate feature : each post is properly translated by a translator.

                            It's really something missing right now and it also miss in your bulk uploader. Is there any short-term plan to integrate it into hootsuite ?

                            Best Regards,

                            François

                            • Be able to add alt text (for screen readers) to images posted through Hootsuite

                              Alt text is an accessibility feature that allows people who use screen readers to view the Internet to see the content of images. Twitter has already implemented this feature (I believe) and it would be handy to write alt text for images going through the Hootsuite publisher.

                              • Stop asking me to "Upgrade My Plan"

                                I've just upgraded my plan to the Pro level, (still in the 30-day trial period), and yet I still have a little blue button at the top of my screen exhorting me to "Upgrade My Plan". That's just obnoxious.

                                I've just upgraded from Free to Pro. Presumably, I'm smart enough to find out how to upgrade to a higher level if I need it. Having that button constantly sitting there when I'm already a paid member is obnoxious.

                                May I suggest that you remove the button for paid members? You could always send a little note once or twice a…

                                  • The new mentions feature could be better

                                    The new mentions feature is good, would be better if you could enable or disable it.

                                    Best, if you could select where to search.

                                    Personally, I tend to mention the twitter account, even if there is a Facebook profile for a person or organization.

                                      Hello everyone,

                                      Thank you for your feedback on our @Mentions feature.

                                      Over the past week, we have rolled out several minor changes to how this feature works, with an eye to improving performance and ease of use, specifically:

                                      - The username lookup now pays better attention to where the cursor is positioned; if a @ is inserted before a username, that username is now highlighted and searched for

                                      - Punctuation should be recognized and handled better. Typing “@user,” will now automatically create a pill for “@user” and not include the comma. This works for any non-alphanumeric punctuation.

                                      - Performance, in general, should be improved

                                      - For power users, use of the feature via keyboard-only interactions should be faster and more reliable.

                                      Please continue to leave your feedback regarding this feature, as we review it frequently. We look forward to continuing to improve @Mentions with your support.

                                      Thank you,

                                      John Hallett…

                                    • Would love it if we could integrate the NextDoor.com platform into our social streams!

                                      Our business relies on feedback from customers who often post on specialized neighborhood sites like NextDoor.com. If we could integrate this platform into HootSuite networks, it would save us a ton of time!

                                        • Twitter tagging

                                          Allow tagging for Twitter that is not included in the actual Twitter Text please. That is, for text, images, video and other media as well.
