    • 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.

        Thanks for submitting this idea. We are always looking for ways to improve cross-network postings.

      • 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!

              Really cool idea! We’ll look at adding this in the future!

            • Get rid of the verification every time I try to log in

              I have a log in and password - that is all I should need.

              • Let us see complete list of people who "liked" Facebook page

                The Facebook help community is FILLED with people wanting this! Viewers, please help by voting this...

                ...I have several people who "liked" my page because I used a service to generate likes... but these people are irrelevant to my page, which makes less relevant people see my posts... I want to take them off my likes, but Facebook lets us only see a few people.

                PLEASE create the solution!

                  • 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…

                    • error messages

                      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.

                      • We desperately need a way to include Instagram Analytics on our reports in hootsuite!!!

                        Even if its just the basics. Followers, photo likes, most engaging photos. Instagram would be an amazing addition for Analytics reports.

                              • Ability to schedule foursquare check-ins

                                My company has a foursquare brand page that we use to publish the location of events and connect with our followers. We also use HootSuite for most our social media interaction.

                                Being able to schedule our brand's foursquare check-ins would be awesome. TweetDeck currently has this option, but I'd like to see if become part of HootSuite.

                                • Integrate True (Advanced) Boolean Logic for Searches

                                  I believe it would be extremely useful to be able to use advanced Boolean logic in search queries. Currently, if I add too many phrases I either get an error or it says "no results" for phrases that individually DO return results.

                                  For example, I work for a public safety company that monitors incidents around the world. I would be interested in getting results for a query that would optimally look like this: ("New York" OR "New Jersey" OR "Washington DC") AND ("Bomb Threat" OR "Active Shooter" OR "Is Shooting")

                                  However, with the current limitations of the search system, I'm…

                                    • 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.

                                      • Add the Apply parameters button in the Advance section of the Add URL section of the Compose screen to the top of the parameter list as well

                                        In the compose quick screen, in the Advanced section of the Add URL. Add the Apply Parameters button to the top of the Parameter list as well as the bottom. If you have a decent list of parameters in a preset, it would good to have th apply button at the top so you don't have to scroll down but can just hit apply and move on. Perhaps even an Apply and Shrink (in one button) would be nice as well.

                                        • Auto-schedule more than 5 social networks.

                                          Allow AutoSchedule to work with more than 5 social networks at one time.
