  1. Fix the automated @tagging for Twitter on Dashboard!!!

    The tagging feature that automatically populates your tweet with a Twitter handle when you add an "@" and then their handle is so not user-friendly. It is so hard to use and requires a lot of trial and error, especially in a "reply all" tweet. It shouldn't be this hard!

    • copy/paste pictures directly into hootsuite

      As a regular 'tweeter', I have always included multimedia(pics) into my tweets. When i used twitter directly for this I could easily copy,paste pics which would streamline my tweeting process. now the only way for me to add pics is to first save to desktop and then upload. This is a very inefficient way and i think would be great to add this copy/paste feature in. I used to easily be able to use snipping tool and cut out charts and pictures and easily paste them into a tweet.Now with hootsuite it is a cumbersome process.

      • Do not show the Free Trial offer within Dashboard if trial was already used

        I forgot the limit for social networks was 3 for free accounts, so after I selected a 4th, a message pops up that says "Get Up to 100 Social Profiles with Hootsuite Pro" then a green button that says START YOUR 30-DAY FREE TRIAL NOW. I clicked that, and apparently both Hootsuite and I had forgotten I had already used the free trial, probably years ago. So this one click on a FREE TRIAL button automatically triggered an opt-in for Pro and an invoice for $0.67. I think that Hootsuite should have data to be able to tell that I…

        • Enable bottom-up streams

          Currently streams are fed at the top so new material is above old, and yet we read top to bottom. This can make reading streams quickly difficult. If new entries were posted to the bottom of a stream then the top to bottom flow would be consistent between entries and streams and make scanning them much quicker.

              iOS should have the capability to pull search streams and receive notifications.

                  Facebook now has targeting options by interest. Will you be including this in hootsuite anytime soon?

                  • Annoying Green Box and pin tweet box open.

                    Hi,
                    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE can you stop the annoying green pop up that confirms EVERY action and appears over the top of any new tweet.

                    Also it would be very useful if a user could 'pin' the new tweet box so that it rmains open rather than dropping down on mouse over.

                    thank you,

                    OJB

                    • Allowing to resolve unassigned tweets and posts

                      Hello, what I am missing is the possibility to resolve posts and tweets directly in the streams without first having to assign them to a user or team. This would really speed up our process.

                              • Add Grouping for Social Network Publishing

                                A feature I've seen your competitors do that I really like is:
                                the option to quick-select a pre-assigned group of social networks at once.

                                For example if you want to compose for all networks that are related to a site, you press the Group rather than each individually and then it auto-selects each of those within it.

                                It's one of those features that's more for convenience than for a necessity.

                                I can see it saving a lot of time for users with a large amount of social accounts.

                                • Showing Twitter Open Graph information Inline

                                  Summary: in streams and scheduled tweets display Open Graph tag information (title, summary, image/large image).

                                  Detail: when scheduling posts that need to be media-rich it would help massively to see in-line Open Graph information. If there is a lack of Open Graph information, show that, so that an image can be uploaded against such tweets.

                                  This can ensure that posts always have something graphically pleasing. It can also let us know if we have more space for tweet text (if we don't need to upload an image).

                                  This would be really useful - thanks!

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

                                      - 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.
