  1. 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?

    • 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

      • Change Pricing Structure of Analytics Points

        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.

            • 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…

              • Add Link Previews to Bulk Messages

                When I upload bulk messages, I would love for Link Previews to be populated for Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+. I don't see how this is that difficult to add since this feature is already present with RSS feeds and Autoscheduler. Please add this feature. It will save me tons of time going through and manually updating 30 posts across 5 different profiles.

                    Thanks for reaching out! We’ll look at implementing this as Facebook rolls this out to the API.

                  • Show Which Lists a Person is a Member of...

                    Make it easier to know if they need to be added to a list, or are already one, and if so, which one. This would obviously only be for lists that I've subscribed to.

                      • allow us to "mark read" or "mark responded to" mentions, as well as "assign".

                        When more than one person has access to an account, we're allowed to assign that tweet to a certain team member. When the tweet is responded to, it says "So and so responded to this". This means the tweet has been taken care of, and we can all move on.
                        I'd like the option to mark tweets in that column as "read" or "acknowledged", even if we haven't responded to them. Some tweets need no response, like a "Thanks for the RT!"
                        This would be seriously beneficial to my OCDness.

                        • Shared Drafts Among Team Members.

                          Sharing drafts among team members would be a huge help.So that one team member can create the drafts and another person can review, approve and then schedule.

                            Twitter recently added a new feature where people can see a full inline image preview of photos if you attach a photo URL in your tweet. This doesn't work with Hootsuite Ow.ly images and needs to be fixed ASAP.

                                Sorry guys, but this may cause me to delete my account. It was nice to have "templates" that you could just access via a pull down menu, add the right feeds/pages/groups that you wanted it to go to and hit send.... Now you have this "drafts" section that takes you away from the feeds tabs/pages and a pop up window for editing.... This is NOT an improvement IMO..... Sorry, just wanted to throw my 2 cents in because it takes away alot of why I was using Hootsuite....a streamlined way to post to FB groups with as few clicks as…

                                • Improve the integration of Hootsuite to Instagram

                                  I find the current integration of Hootsuite to Instagram, pointless. The reason why Hootsuite is so effective is it actually posts for the user and I love that you can schedule posts in advance. But with the current integration of Hootsuite to Instagram, Hootsuite now acts only as a 'reminder' to the user when what we're asking for is for Hootsuite to actually publish to Instagram automatically. What if I don't have access to the Wifi or Mobile Data and Hootsuite reminds me to publish my scheduled post on Instagram? Then it's pointless. I hope you could fix this.

                                  • I would love to see a poll/or question feature added to hootsuite

                                    This might already be an option but I didn't have time to scroll through the thousands of suggestions. Would like to be able to schedule ahead of time a trivia poll (such as already available on fb apps).

                                      • add ability to search sent and pending tweets

                                        please add the "filter by" option that's available for the home, mention and DM streams to the streams of sent and pending tweets. i'd like to be able to search those as well. thanks

                                        • 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.

                                            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.
