  1. Attach images to bulk uploads / bulk scheduling.

    As images and videos are key to increasing engagement, I don't see much point in bulk uploading scheduled posts (particularly for a specific campaign) if you're not allowed to attached images to the posts as well. If we have to go in and edit the scheduled posts to add images individually after doing a bulk upload, we haven't really saved any time to schedule. Even if the only images we could use in bulk uploads would be ones that have a web URL directing toward them (and not necessarily new files from our local machines), that would still be an…

      Hello Everyone,

      Thank you for your feedback. We are currently redesigning our Bulk Upload feature from the ground up, and the ability to attach images will definitely be included in this version, along with better error report, editing, previews, and a whole new user interface. Initially the ability attach images will be manual, but we will expand it in future versions.

      We will begin rolling out this feature as an optional beta in July for Pro and Enterprise users, so keep your eye out for an invite to switch to the new version in the Bulk Uploader. Feel free to try it out without worry, as you can always switch back.

      During the beta period, we will be actively soliciting feedback from our users, and directing our development efforts based upon that feedback, so be sure to tell us what you think, often!

      Thank you for your continued support.

      John…

      • 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?

                  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.

                          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.

                          • 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…

                              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.

                                • 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…

                                  • 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.

                                        • Post photos / pictures rather than links when using mobile app

                                          I use this app on the go everyday but it's getting on my nerves that I have to go to desktop version to schedule pictures. I need images to show on Facebook and Google+ when I use the mobile app on my iPhone and iPad, not a link. Thank you!
