    • the ability to update the Facebook Cover Photo

      I update all of my brands Cover Photo at least every week. Being able to schedule this would be very helpful!

      • Split long tweets into multiple tweets automatically

        While typing my thoughts and if some of the thoughts extend, I'd like to have hootsuite just cut it out into a new tweet rather than limit the tweet.... me tweeting... and than having to type the later half on a new tweet. Why can't it just happen as I write?

        • add a feature to highlight a facebook post when scheduling

          photos show up nice and large when you "highlight" them. It would be nice to be able to set that when scheduling.

            This is a great idea! We’ll look at the possibility with implementing this in the future under Facebook’s API.

          • Be able to delete sent messages from the DM Outbox (not just the Inbox)

            Add an option to delete previously sent DMs from your outbox. This already works for the DM inbox, so why not for the outbox too?

              • Show mention/DM status ( replied, unread, assigned ... )

                Some emails clients like thunderbird add an small icon when an email has been replied or forwarded. To keep tracking of tweets, mentions, DMs or Facebook comments it would be nice to have this kind of icons in each tweet. In this way, we can see if a mention or DM to us has been answered to avoid forgeting to do it.

                • enable multiple direct message delete; ie "delete selected messages" feature.

                  Cleaning out the direct message inbox either with Twitter or though clients like HootSuite is a nightmare having to do it one message at a time. The ability to select multiple messages (even a "select all" capability) then delete those selected would be a huge plus.

                  • schedule bulk messages by using calender function

                    I would like to be able to use the calender scheduler to schedule smaller bulk posts by just clicking on what days it should be posted.

                        • Remove hashtags from Facebook posts

                          I think Hootsuite should be able to automatically (or have the option to) remove hashtags from Facebook posts because they're unnecessary. At the moment I have to post to Twitter and Google+ at the same time, then post to Facebook separately removing the hashtags.

                          • Re-enable staying logged in for a week

                            Recently, you removed the "keep me logged in" tick box in the login screen. Everytime you restart the browser, we are forced to click log in and type username and password. Very annoying.

                            Before, we only had to do that once a week. Much better.

                            • offer draft tweets as a column

                              I would like a column called "draft tweets" so that I can view all the draft tweets associated with a particular account rather than having to go to the message composition window and use the dropdown. This is especially helpful when using an If This Then That recipe to create draft messages. I would like to be able to rocket through all those drafts, scheduling them from within a drafts column. Thanks!

                                  • Allow Facebook groups to blacklist themselves from Hootsuite posts. My group is inundated with hootsuite spam; we have to ban those members.

                                    I am an admin for a Facebook group that clearly states that no self-promotion is allowed on the forum. However, people who use HootSuite, who add their FB group, are spamming our wall every day. I get between 4-10 posts a day that I have to clean up. The only option at present is banning these members, because they don't get our comments (or ignore them) to remove the ad.

                                    It would be much more simple if we could give you our group URL and blacklist ourselves in some way. I realize you are limited in functionality because of FB…

Currently, you need to create a preset for each social network, compose a message for each network individually (because you will need to add a different preset to each message), Click Advanced, Select the Preset for that network listed under 'Add custom URL parameters' and then post. Then you need to do this all over for the next social network post.

                                      I would suggest that we create a preset for each network and link it to that network during…

                                        I suggest you change the error messages box somewhere else, it bothers when I´m trying to fix/resend my message. I suggest you send it to the middle of the screen.

                                          We’re always reviewing how to best display error messages. But, no matter what, we want to make sure users see the errors. Hence the current placement.

                                          Regardless, if there’s a better way to display them, we’re all ears.
