  1. 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!

    • Export Assignments data

      I recommend (and I think this may already be underway) adding an Export feature to the Assignments view. For accounts that have multiple Team Members and lots of Social Networks, it would be great to get all Assignments data (within customizable date ranges) exported to CSV file for easy manipulation.

      • Allow for @mentions and tagged photos to be added to streams

        It would be great to have a stream where you could view when people @mention you in a post or comment, as well as being able to view photos people tag you in.

        • 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.

            Hi there! We’ll review if this is possible through the LinkedIn API. Appreciate your feedback!

          • Ow.ly photos need to show inline image previews when browsing timeline

            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.

              • Move Draft Templates back to the Compose Message Box

                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 Twitter response time analytics

                          Create a tool where you can measure the response time of your tweets. E.g. it would measure how long it takes you to respond to someone who has mentioned you. It would be a great method of measuring customer service and increasing engagement in an online community.

                            Thanks for the feedback! We’ll look at adding this analytic report in the future.

                          • Increase maximum number of scheduled posts from 350 to 700(?), 1000(?)

                            When going on holiday, I find 350 scheduled posts to be insufficient as I look after the accounts of several clients.

                            Could HS look into increasing this limit? I understand there are storage implications but relatively few users would approach the limit & it would give much needed flexibility to a great professional tool.

                                I would like to track traffic from each social network in Google Analytics easier than how we can do this now. 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…

                                    • 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!

                                          You have the check box that says you will, but you don't even retain the username, let alone the password. It's pretty annoying to have to manually type full login credentials every single time one wants to access their account.
