  1. Don't send "Verify Your Account" emails.

    It is extremely difficult to tell whether it is real or fake. Very unusual to get an email like that that is actually legit

    • Facebook thumnail

      Whenever we post links in Facebook, it's not showing the thumbnail for that link. Instead it shows a box with either "check this link" or the shortened URL and it looks ugly. Any update on this? Thanks

        • Don't lose OpenGraph tags on shortening URLs

          Hi - if I post a link to Facebook via the web dashboard, and choose to shorten the link, many OpenGraph tags are lost. HootSuite seems to scrape the target page for title, description and image, and posts those to Facebook, but in doing so, other tags like og:video are ignored.

          This causes the player to be lost when sharing Audioboo links (eg https://audioboo.fm/boos/1848708-nm044-lolawolf-what-love-is)

          • add statistics for Facebook pages (such as clickthroughs on owlys)

            I can see how many click throughs Owlys are getting for Twitter accounts but not our Facebook page.

            • Multiple dates

              I wish I could have the option to select multiple dates for a post. I admin a church's facebook page and we many times are advertising an event and want it to come up at different times in our followers newsfeed. I have to make multiple posts of the same event to go on the different days.

              • Auto recurring scheduled messages

                Would like to schedule recurring messages at set intervals. Example weekly:

                "It's Thursday and that means 1/2 price wings... join us tonight and every Thursday for your #wingfix

                Other tools can do this for me but I would like the hootsuite dashboard to support it.

                • auto schedule

                  i need to arrange my auto schedule in the same time everyday (just like buffer.com did), so i don't have to input it one by one. i don't want hootsuite arrange auto schedule to the best time (according to you).

                    Please add the ability to track clicks on ow.ly URLs shortened inside HootSuite but not tweeted to help track engagement outside Twitter. With this feature we could use our ow.ly report to track clicks across all properties, which would be a boon.

                      • embed video to facebook

                        Currently Youtube published html embedding code on each of their video pages. Unfortunately, the code is slightly longer than the maximum number of characters Hootsuite allows for Facebook updates. Can you clear this up so we can embed video from Youtube directly into facebook?

                          This would be a cool feature to implement. Nonetheless, we’ll continue to monitor support for this feature amongst HootSuite users.

                        • suggestion: Export Publisher to others

                          I really need this so I can get my work done:

                          Being able to export the Publisher into Excel - WITH ALL TEXT. I need to file everything I have posted and there is currently no way for me to even PRINT it out! I need all the text that I have scheduled for different pages too.

                          Please add to your update guys!! it's so urgent for me!!

                            • Input text field be more intelligent

                              I would like to see the text input field change depending on output destination. if I am only selecting twitter output source the field should default to 140 char. but if I pick a facebook only the text window is larger. What really would be great have an option to enter text into multiple input text field pop up based on each destination of output. I find myself doctoring a tweet down to 140 c. but then sending a second post to facebook with more expanded info . maybe a twitter text input screen and an option to post to…

                                When both Facebook and Twitter are selected, there should be a red notification below the Compose field for when you go over the limit.

                                That said, we’re always considering ways to improve the Compose field’s UI.

                              • Place two buttons on the post dialogue, one for schedule post and one for tweet now.

                                Instead of turning autoschedule on and off to tweet now, why not place two buttons on the compose message dialogue box, one for post now or one for schedule. Makes more sense to me.

                                  • Simplify my ability to follow those who have retweeted my tweets.

                                    I want to be able to reorder the retweet stream in order of the tweets that have been retweeted the most. I want to be able to click on the users who retweeted me and, from that list, follow those those who I'm not already following. If I click on user profile to find out more, I don't want the retweet list disappearing after. One master list of everyone who has ever retweeted me, along with follow/un-follow options, would also be ideal. Currently - the steps on HootSuite to follow retweeters is more complicated than using Twitter. Haven't found any…

                                      It would be awesome if you could have a 'Forgot e-mail' link as well as a 'Forgot password'. Some of us are forgetful :)

                                      • bring back "open in safari" for iOS.

                                        I can't open links in Safari when viewing them in Hootsuite anymore.

                                        • Stream option Rating/Review Tab of Facebook Page

                                          I suggest to add to the stream options of Facebook Page on Hootsuite the rating/review tab to be able to answer to clients.

                                            Hi there!

                                            Thanks for that suggestion. We’ll continue to review adding more stream options for Facebook when newer versions of the API are released to us.

                                            Best regards,

                                            Paige @Hootsuite_Help – http://hootsuite.com/help
