    • Shorten Google plus posts in search streams

      I have saved streams with searches on Google+ but some posts there are just endless.
      It would be so user-friendly if these long text posts would be limited to a preview and save us all some serious scrolling time.

      Me and my team would be forever grateful.

      • Change the Facebook page icon from "Flag" to an "F" or anything else

        It's always confusing when I want to post and I never remember Facebook with a flag. It should be an F or at least something blue not orange.

        • Show your specific direct message's history when looking at Twitter profiles.

          That way you can know what you already talked with that person, if you already sent a previous message or not, etc. without having to make a one by one search in the outbox column, or directly opening Twitter.

          • Restore In app Purchases

            It would be great to see in app purchases added to iOS and Android again. Some people out there (including me) do not want to give there Credit Card or Pay Pal account online to anymore companies due to security concerns and other reasons. It would be nice for them to be able to take advantage of all the great features HootSuite Pro has to offer just by paying through the iTunes App Store and Google Play stores. Therefore I am requesting this wonderful feature be added once again to the HootSuite mobile apps. Thank You.

            • allow users to see how many times a post was shared on Facebook.

              When you post on Facebook, you can see on Facebook how many times the post was shared. You cannot, however, see that on Hootsuite. It is good way to monitor if your content is attractive to the Facebook community.

              • LinkedIn Business Pages Thumbnail Images

                Hello, When we post to LinkedIn for our clients we often times need to put a link into the post and an image. I understand that a link will be generated for the URL and the image but when they post they don't look very professional. When scheduled through Hootsuite the images has some text next to it that looks un-professional, and the images get cut off. You have to click on the images to see the full view. Where as the ones scheduled through LinkedIn look much better and images get displayed fully and no additional "Image uploaded by…

                • Get the Facebook API to work a little less "whenever I feel like it."

                  Well, it's like this. Instead of leaving Facebook to make my posts, coming to Hootsuite, and then getting repeated API errors on a sporadic but frequent basis, I finally realized I was losing more wasted time even coming to Hootsuite.

                  Then I wondered what the client I recommended Hootsuite to would do or say when THEY couldn't post to FB on Hootsuite. I decided it would make me look REALLY stupid.

                  So, I sent them to Hubspot. See how user experience works?

                  • Put a delay between when a message is being sent out of multiple accounts (so that it doesn't all go out at the same time)

                    HI HOOTSUITE Y'ALL ARE SO GREAT!

                    I would love to see if it is possible to put a delay between when a message is being sent out of multiple accounts (so that it doesn't all go out at the same time). For Example, I manage multiple accounts at the ministry that I work for (around ten accounts)... and our audience often times likes/follows more then one of our accounts... SO when we do a large announcement (like our weekly YouTube announcement) it clutters up our audience's timelines for us to post that same message all at once on all of…

                      It currently is possible to schedule the same message at separate times to separate social network profiles.

                      That said, we’d love a little more detail on this feature request. How long would the delay be, for instance? How do you imagine other users choosing the option for a delay?

                          Hi Jay!

                          Please ensure that you have your dashboard set to the right time zone by going to Settings> Account and selecting the timezone from the drop down menu. I’m able to successfully update to the correct timezone on my dashboard.

                        • add support for recovery of accidentally deleted scheduled posts

                          I recently managed to accidentally delete over a month's worth of scheduled posts. There was no warning message to explain exactly what would be happening, so I was caught completely off guard and had to start over completely.

                          A Hootsuite Customer Advocate, Nadia, was able to provide recommendations for what to do to prevent this in the future:

                          "I would also recommend that you keep a separate record of scheduled messages as a back up in the case of accidents such as this one."

                          She also provided an explanation:
                          "Currently, we do not have the bandwidth to offer recovery options…

                            • Be able to add an account to several lists at once

                              It happens that we want to add an account to several lists especially when we need to list it through multiple Twitter accounts. For exemple, we sometimes have to add an account to 5 different lists. Currently, the online way to do it is to scroll 5 times our lists trying to find the good one through 50 different lists. It would be great if we could add the account to these 5 lists at once by just selecting them in one time, then clicking on the button "add to the lists". This would save us a lot of time.

                                Put names of the different accounts in the day en week scheduled list. That you can see in one view which account has placed on which time, so that you can easily change times and see that it is not scheduled to close after eachother!

                                  • Could you please make the links that are unshortened clickable?

                                    This may seem redundant, but hear me out.

                                    When I am using Hootsuite, often I click the plus next to a shortened link (i.e. bit.ly/ldskfj). I love that the service shows me the unshortened link.

                                    The problem is I have to go back to the original link and click it. The trouble with that is all the shortening services are blocked! I work in a school, and the shortening services are blocked in most every school.

                                    A way around that would be simply for you all to make the links that are unshortened clickable. Seems easy to do, I suppose.

                                      Interesting suggestion. We’ll monitor this feature request further, and gauge interest from other HootSuite users.

                                    • education

                                      I am a college student who uses hootsuite for two organizations that I am a part of. I believe hootsuite is incredible for managing social media however the free version can only do so much and as we are a very small group we don't have the money to even pay the discounted price. Has Hootsuite ever thought of allowing those in education, specifically those in college learning how to take care of an organization's pr, to have free access to hootsuite pro?

                                      • Please change the colors on the Regional Site Traffic - Map Overlay in your google anylitics report it's hard to read.

                                        If possible change your colors on your Regional Site Traffic - Map Overlay in the Google Analytic report. It makes it very difficult to read with it's all just shades of light green that fade into a light blue background for the ocean. I would recommend using more pronounced and diverse colors to at a glance you can see and read the map.

                                        • Have the ability to Wall Albums and post comments to them.

                                          It would be great to have the ability to see "Group Walls' and be able to see an Album listed on the wall. I post to about 50-100 Groups where I sell goods placed in an album but hootsuite doesn't allow me to not only see the albums, but I also cannot see any post made on the album nor can I respond to any posts. This would be a winner for me.
