  1. 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.

      • 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…

        • 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…

                • 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…

                        • 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.

                              • 1 Pond versus Various Streams

                                Instead of just having different tabs for each linked network and then having a stream for the different activity in it--PERHAPS a feature where users of HootSuite could pool all the feed streams into one overall pond would be useful. The source of the individual contacts could just put in parentheses/brackets/braces or maybe even color coded. I'd still keep the broken-down version available, but just have pooling be an option our upper right-hand owl offers.

                                Side note: The current color schemes are nice, but being able to change them to our own liking instead of just the Magnum, Blue Steel,…

                                  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!

                                      I like the way that Seesmic Desktop has different color columns for replies and different colors for direct messages. It helps assimilate information much faster! I think that color coding the columns will help a lot!

                                      • 5000 Characters are now allowed on Facebook Wall Posts. Update Hootsuite to Allow the Same

                                        Facebook now allows 5k characters in a wall post. Hootsuite still only allows 420 characters to be published to your wall on Facebook, which was the old limit. Update Hootsuite please so we can publish 5k characters! Thanks! :)
