  1. 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.

      • 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.

            • 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…

                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.

                Thank you all for using Hootsuite!

              • Create an Easy Way to Add Unique Google Analytics Parameters for Each Social Network

                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…

                        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.

                            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!

                                  • Add missing Facebook features: see and respond to reviews + hide wall posts (not delete)

                                    The following are missing:

                                    1. Ability to see a reviews stream for Facebook company page.
                                    2. Following on from number 1, ability to respond to reviews on a Facebook company page.
                                    3. Ability to hide wall posts on Facebook as opposed to just deleting them. Hiding a wall post creates less drama as the user who submitted it and his/her friends will still see the post and will thus be unaware of its status as hidden i.e. it not being shown to other users.

                                    • 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.

                                      • export twitter followers to CSV or Excel

                                        Would make it easier to keep track of them.

                                        • 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.
