  1. show the image in the scheduled posts like in wall post, with a accessible preview in one click

    This way would be better and faster to review the scheduled posts with images

    • Schedule tweets via email

      I often use a variety of different apps on iOS for looking at tweets - flipboard, tweetmag etc., and I'd love to be able to schedule tweets by emailing links from these apps to whatever address and have them schedule in Hootsuite.

      For example, the email topic would be Tuesday, 10am, and the content of the email would be the Tweet. If the tweet was more than 140 characters it would be automatically shortened with ow.ly - any links in the post would also automatically be shortened with ow.ly

      Thanks for your consideration.

        This is an interesting suggestion. We’ll continue to monitor this thread to gauge interest from other HootSuite users.

      • Quote Tweets - Add feature to streams

        With the Twitter API quote tweet feature, it will show up on Twitter as a "Notification" but because it is not a mention or a retweet, there is no way of classifying this information into a Hootsuite stream. Unfortunately, this means still needing to watch Twitter notifications for these Quote Tweet responses in order to maintain responsiveness.

        • Reduce the white space / make sectioning more apparent

          Reduce space: between the tweet itself and the handle/timestamp. It's too much space

          Sectioning: each handle/tweet blends in, making it more difficult for the eye to differentiate tweets and scroll quickly with the feed. make that faint grey line more apparent.

          It's all very, very white, too.

          • Add in Country Specific filters for posts

            Great to use but all of the post suggestions so far are US based and not really relevant to my UK followers.

            It would be great to see country specific filtering where you can add in your country and or regions in the settings section

            • Auto-Schedule in dashboard and Hootlet to be independent from each other

              Right now, if you toggle on auto-schedule in HootSuite's web dashboard, it also toggles it in the Hootlet, and vice versa.

              • Show people's real names instead of user names in the timeline.

                If you are following a lot of people, it can get confusing trying to remember who is assigned to what user name. I think it would be fantastic if you could add a setting which allows us to show people's real names in the timeline in place of their user name.

                  We currently have this as an option with our iPhone and iPad apps, and may implement it in a future release for the web app.

                • Remove From List

                  Is it possible to get a "Remove From List" button in a profile details as same as "Add To List"?

                  • A color system to identify quickly those who follow me, those who do not follow me and the fans

                    I wonder who follows me on own timeline. I'm getting confused many twitter and would like to give unfollow in some, but I'm wondering if that person follows me. I want to clean my own twitter by HootSuite. The system could be color eg red color for who I follow and come after me. Green for my fans and yellow for who I follow, and she follows. I know it something. The colors help a lot. Thank you for your attention

                      Have you used the People Browser in HootSuite? This easily displays all the info of who follows you and so on.

                        • unique subject line for notifications

                          We assign escalations to a CS team who then receive an email notification, the current notifications don't have any unique reference in the email url which makes it a nightmare for logging responses our side and theirs. Could we please have the functionality to at least indicate which network the contact relates to (Facebook, Twitter) and the time/date of the contact? This would really help make this a practical application for our organisation to grow with and roll out to other businesses. Many thanks

                            This is a tremendous idea. In fact, it is one we ourselves would love to use. We’re notifying our dev team for further review.

                          • Enable messages to be pulled in from LinkedIn & Facebook

                            It seems that I can't pull in a stream of my direct messages from Facebook & LinkedIn where I can with Twitter. This means I can't get away from using LinkedIn & Facebook entirely. I can't imagine this would be a difficult feature to add, but what do I know?

                            • Alter the ‘assign to’ function so that you can assign a whole conversation, not just a tweet.

                              Hi there, we joined hootsuite partly because of the ability to assign from one team member to another (and we're loving it overall by the way).

                              However we would really appreciate a function that allows you to assign a conversation, rather than just a tweet.

                              We're finding it very difficult for the assignee to followup and provide any detailed response when an issue may arise over a few tweets.

                              e.g:
                              Customer: There is an issue with my train.
                              Us: Could you tell us which one?
                              Customer: It was the one leaving this station at 6:30am.

                              The problem is at the…

                              • I would like to be able to tag contacts on LinkedIn the same way I am able to tag contacts on Twitter.

                                When I schedule an update to go out to my LinkedIn page from HootSuite, I would like it to recognize my tags. When I tag someone in a post scheduled for twitter, it recognizes their twitter handle. When I schedule a post for LinkedIn (and use their corresponding LinkedIn handle), HootSuite tells me Twitter does not recognize that information, despite the fact that I am posting in LINKEDIN and not Twitter.

                                  increase base points for analytics report for pro users. 50 isn't enough, 100'd be great! Additionally, make it cheaper to purchase extra points.

                                      Currently, new tweets show up with a discreet blue dot on the right hand side. With that said, assigned tweets now show up in blue and yellow boxes. If we display new tweets in another color, it would have to mesh with what we’ve currently created from a design perspective.

                                    • create a message using your email

                                      Allow the ability to create a Hootsuite message using an email account. For instance, I have a yahoo email account, and I compose a message I would like to have posted on Hootsuite. The email address to send the email to would be something like myaccount@hootsuite. Hootsuite gets the email (message to my account), which is then converted into a Hootsuite formatted message, and gets posted when scheduled.

                                        • Expand/Collapse Compose Message Box On-Click

                                          I often find that the profile picker will appear when I don't want it to. Usually I'll move the mouse up to the compose window and click, then (unintentionally) move the mouse over to the right. When I start typing, the text goes into the profile picker and not the compose box. This is very frustrating.

                                          The profile picker has a dropdown icon next to it, indicating that it will respond to a click, not a hover. I would recommend that the behavior either be adjusted to respond to click and not hover, or provide a configuration option that lets…

                                            Hi there! Thank you all for your feedback.

                                            This is a fantastic suggestion, and our developers are continuing to review this idea for possible implementation to future updates to the Hootsuite web dashboard.

                                            In the meantime, we’ve recently made some great updates to the compose message box and profile picker. To learn more about these Hootsuite features, please head to https://help.hootsuite.com/entries/21774775-Tips-Tricks-The-Social-Profile-Picker.

                                            Thank you all for using Hootsuite!
