  1. Automatic Translation of non-english tweets

    There are many non-english tweets in some of my streams. I would like them to be automatically translated to English. Should be a preference that says what language you want them to be translated to.

      • I wish I could block users from within Hootsuite DASHBOARD, not just contacts

        Presently, there is no way to block someone from Dashboard without reporting them as Spam. The only way to non-spam block someone is to do so through Contacts, which means they must be following you or you them, and it is unwieldy if you're blocking many people at once.

        I recommend an option in dashboard beside "Report Spammer" which is simply "Block".

          • facebook lists

            facebook users already create lists to keep them updated on profiles of their choosing. twitter lists like this are already integrated into hootsuite. I'm proposing the same for facebook. thanks for your consideration.

            • Give Ow.ly custom addresses (like bit.ly & tinyurl allow) Example:

              With bit.ly & tinyurl you can create your own custom ending. I would LOVE that with ow.ly.

              Examples:

                • Create Privacy Options for Ow.ly Image Uploads

                  I have been using Hootsuite to schedule posts on social media. The week before our collections launch, we schedule a series of previews to spark the interest of our customers and followers. Especially due to the space constraints on Twitter, I have been using Ow.ly links for pictures. This morning we found out that customers are able to access all the photo archive on ow.ly and to see all the pictures that have been linked to future posts.
                  Is there an option on Ow.ly Hootsuite that would keep pictures private until the post goes public?
                  Thanks!

                    Hi there. Thanks for reaching out to us!

                    While we currently don’t have a feature to make ow.ly uploaded images private until otherwise set, this is a fantastic suggestion and we’d be happy to take it under review for possible future updates to Ow.ly and HootSuite.

                    Thanks for using HootSuite!

                  • Implement PIWIK in Hootsuite!

                    Google Analytics is not suiteable for german data law rights. Soit would be nice if you implemented Piwik because it is more and more popular.

                    • Add an Auto-shrink (Auto-shorten) button users can click to replace URL's with short URL's

                      HootSuite should have a "shrink" button that automatically replaces any URL's in a post with a short URL. I hate having to cut URL's out of the post, shrink them, and move them back to the proper place in the post (instead of at the end). Follow Tweetdeck's example and make HootSuite more usable for your customers.

                      • Build on the great new LinkedIn groups functionality by allowing posts to the group jobs tab

                        As LinkedIn is heavily used by companies for recruitment it would make sense to add the ability to post jobs to the group jobs tab instead of only allowing posts to the discussions

                        • add the possibility to remove the hashtag "#" when posting differently than twitter ?

                          It's good to have the "#" symbol for twitter.
                          Then, when your post is going to facebook or linkedin, you have the "#" symbol before some words.
                          But for people who don't know the meaning of the "#", it seems strange .. so it maybe a good idea to have an option to remove the "#" when posting to Facebook or Linkedin (elsewhere thant twitter).
                          Thank you.

                            Would love to have a drupal module that allowed us to auto-tweet new content with ow.ly shortened urls. we auto tweet new content now, but no drupal module that gives us both url shortening and tracking through hootsuite. might you tell us how to build such a module using ow.ly api? Thanks!

                            • Allow users to add copy to the beginning OR end of tweets. Right now, 'prepending' is only option.

                              HootSuite only allows users to add text to the beginning of each tweet. HootSuite calls this 'prepending'. It would be helpful for those of us working with RSS to add copy such as hashtags at the end of our tweets.

                                    I think for many Users it could be very important to have a language filter.

                                      Simple enough, allow standard, native Retweets to be autoscheduled instead of having to 'edit' and break the RT model.

                                        Interesting idea! Currently, there is no scheduling available for native retweets. Would you see all types of scheduling being added, or just Autoscheduling?

                                      • Shorten links automatically

                                        automatically shorten URLs pasted into the Compose Message window if there is enabled option

                                          Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll look at the feasibility of doing this in the future. An opt-in setting would be necessary.

                                        • to add yourls support for own link shortening

                                          Use the API of the simple to configure yourls open source project to shorten links with the use of the own domain. ie. pro7.de/galileolive
