    • I would like to see the ability to combine multiple Instagram tag locations into one stream.

      Let's say (like my organization) you have multiple locations that someone might like to share an image from. It'd be fantastic if I didn't have to have 5 feeds for 5 locations, between 2 tabs... and could instead have all of them in one feed. Is that a possibility? I know the Instagram functionality is new - but we actually have 40 locations and creating a new tab for ever 4-5 of them doesn't sound like a ton of fun!

      • allow an on/off feature for the (currently forced) behavior of refresh when you post a tweet.

        Recently you implemented a 'feature' that causes the screen to be refreshed when you post a tweet. When working backwards over past tweets or updates it is annoying to have the display refresh, and cause you to loose your place, just because you've posted an update.. Refresh is configurable and one option is 'manual only'. Where this is true, why can this not also be true (or remain true - as it used to be this way) when posting updates?

          planned  ·  SarahSarah responded

          Thanks for the feedback! We’ve added it to our dev queue to get this resolved in the near future, and I’ll update this topic when we’ve done so.

        • Implement a Home Minus List Column?

          I think it would be great, if not already possible to have a home column that doesn't contain any users that are present in lists. A sort of 'everyone else' column, if you will. I tend not to have my home column in view because a lot of people I have on it are in lists, but lists don't display ReTweets and other such things. Is it already possible to do this? If not I think it would be quite useful. Then I won't see any duplicates and my 'home' feed will be a bit like an 'everything else' feed…

          • Have the stream load and view the latest tweets in the HootSuite iPhone app.

            I don't use my iPhone every day and don't want to see the tweets from last Tuesday when I open up the Hootsuite app. This is what Hootsuite said to me about it: "Upon speaking with our mobile developers, intended behaviour for the iPhone app with viewing Twitter streams is to load the streams from the place that the streams were last viewed, rather than loading the stream from the top (the latest tweets)."

            I think this is counter-intuitive. At least give me the option in my settings.

              • My favorite hashtags

                It would really accelerate the content curation for Twitter and Facebook if we could easily add hashtags coming from a personal favorite or most used hashtags by profile.

                • add horizontal scrolling mechanism for more than four streams.

                  I notice there isn't a any horizontal scrolling for the streams in a tab. Same goes to the tabs itself (there is More.. which will pop up the rest of the tabs, but horizontal scrolling adds visual taste imo.) You should also consider users in window mode (not maximized window).

                  • Query String Parameters to indicate which PLATFORM post is on. Auto URL shorten.

                    Right now, I'm posting to FB, Twitter, G+, and Linked In using Hootsuite, but when people see my posts and come back to my website, I have NO idea where they saw the post. I'd love the ability to be able to set up a post like:

                    "Some info here. Click for details: http://599cd.com?KEY={PLATFORM}";

                    And then your site would convert the URL and shorten it so that each platform is replaced with "FB" or "Twitter" or whatever site is being posted to. This would GREATLY increase the value of your service to me! This way the user then is…

                    • would be great if I could post to a Facebook group as my page instead of myself

                      So when I post to groups I am trying to promote my company, but cannot figure out how to post as MY PAGE instead of my personal profile...this is a deal breaker for Hootsuite and I am looking for other software offering this feature as well as the ability to upload and share photos as albums between my photo site (Flickr) and social media sites (primarily LinkedIn and Facebook). Hootesuite is not saving me time if I still have to do these key things via the individual sites and accounts.

                      • develop a quick way to follow one Twitter account from the multiple accounts HootSuite manages.

                        I'm looking for a way to follow Twitter users with all my accounts that follow one of my many accounts... For example, if someone follows account '@A' I want to be able to easily reciprocate the follow not only with my '@A' account but also with my remaining '@B', '@C' and '@D' accounts. Any ideas? Thanks.

                        • Create the ability to make team member assignments on posts in LinkedIn groups so SME's can respond in a timely fashion.

                          Like Facebook & Twitter, being able to assign a team member to respond to a topic or post in a LinkedIn Group (at the very least in a group we own, ideally in any group we participate in) would make interaction much easier for our company in groups about our products and services.

                          We could assign subject matter experts to respond directly instead of attempting to get answers via email and then centralizing responses within marketing.

                            From left to right, it should be: Reply, ReTweet, DM, Favorite. GUI usability testing should be used to confirm, but at least for us, it's a lot more logical.

                                Thanks for the feedback! At this time the refresh ratings are set by tab, but we can look at setting per stream.

                                  In the team structure, only users with admin access can mark tweets as favorites - boo! This is a form of posting content/user interaction and needs to be included in the non-administrator user type!

                                  • Have a "You are about to permanently delete a post. Are you sure?" after you click an 'x'

                                    It's too easy to delete something that could be valuable. The 'x' near the top of the stream is too close to the 'x' of the first post listed. I made the mistake myself after deleting an important Facebook wall post by accident. Hopefully having a warning like this will prevent others of making the same mistake I did.

                                      Please: Better RSS/Atom interface, so one don't have to scroll through the entire list (which could be time wasting when having a bunch of RSS entries). Also: As someone mentioned below: a filter would be terrific! Like: Showing just RSS to Twitter or alphetically, or a search box so you can easily find an RSS address. THANK YOU!

                                      • To be able to schedule a months worth of posts at the same time of the day all in one post

                                        I post different things at the same time every day and I don't like having to change the time every time. There should be a way to keep the time the same as the previous post. Or you could have all your posts able to be scheduled at the same time. Say 5 for five days, make 5 different line postings and allow me to schedule them all at the same time.

                                        • Post page image to Twitter (just like Facebook & Google+)

                                          When you load an url to Hootsuite, it automatically retrieves the page image along with the title and description. These are all posted to Facebook and Google+.

                                          I'd like to see that it also posts the (selected) image to Twitter, just in the same way it posts a picture when you manually add an image.
