    • posting to jobs tab on linked in and posting with customized picture not randon

      Please consider the following features. They are very important.

      1. posting on linkedin goes to discussions while i am posting jobs which must be marked as jobs. please note that I post automatically using the RSS feature

      2. Using the rss feature, I post on several social media accounts but have no control on the picture which is automatically posted. The tool randomly takes picture from the site which most of the time are not relevant. Please provide a way to fix this issue or alternatively provide a third party connectivity for stock picture to be attached automatically based on…

        Sharing post of the page to groups I am linked with, helps in increasing reach count and the views. By the way, I have done the coding, would like to share with Hootsuite if allowed.

        • Improve Favorite functionality.

          I would like to see what I've without having to drop down the menu on every tweet. In addition, it would be great to have Favorite be an item that doesn't require you to drop down the menu. Personally, I'd swap it out with DM which I don't use as often. Even better would be to be able to customize the order you see these so everyone can use it how it works best for them.

          • All messages in conversations...

            Current behaviour of the 'show conversation' feature seems to demand strict turn taking in messages. Surely it should be able to show multiple @replies for each person?! For example, when I tweet twice before the other person responds, in conversation view I only see the last of these, which to me seems incorrect behaviour...

            • Autoresponder for Private Groups

              I run a 3 week weight loss accountability group with a defined start date. I was wondering if you could set up a system template and save it, like you do with draft messages but to be able to do it with more than one message like:

              3 Week Accountability Autoresponder
              Day 1 - Send message one
              +1 Day - Send message Two
              +1 Day - Send message Three

              Then just schedule the whole thing to go out rather than scheduling each individual message in drafts.

                • fix the image upload so it displays the image instead of an ow.ly link

                  When I create a tweet, and upload an image inside of HootSuite, it creates an Ow.ly link instead of attaching the image. The image is important and I want the image to be shown, not a Ow.ly link.

                  • support for m3u8 videos in tweets

                    Videos in tweets don't work properly.
                    It's ok if the video file is `.mp4` but I often get tweets in my feed which link through to `.m3u8` ...when I click on those I don't get a video player, the browser downloads the file.

                    eg
                    https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/682617316081831937/pu/pl/K89xoj1aGVdti_zk.m3u8

                    I would like all embedded videos in tweets to play properly.

                    I'm on OSX 10.11.3, Chrome 47.0

                    • Change layout of invitation response page

                      I have sent several coworkers invitations to be team members. They are not currently hootsuite users.

                      When they attempt to accept the invitation, they get frustrated and give up because they do not quickly see the link to create an account, nor do they understand that it is an extra step in the process. I suggest you change the layout of the invitation page to add a larger area for users to sign up for hootsuite. Then they won't get frustrated and give up before they ever get started.

                      • Add "Image Attached" status to scheduled tweets when viewing in list view

                        When viewing scheduled tweets, there is no way to see if they have an attached image without opening the tweet in the editor. I'd like to see in list view something like "(Image attached)" - next to the "By myname" would be fine.
                        This is especially needed when importing a large number of tweets as the import doesn't support pictures and so each tweet has to be later manually edited to add a picture. Being able to easily see which tweets already had picture would speed things up and stop errors.

                          • Set up posting across multiple time zones

                            I have to share content across multiple time zones and I am absolutely atrocious at maths. It would be a pretty handy tool to be able to select a targeted time in multiple time zones without needing to do any bad addition/subtraction and risk mucking it up!

                            Cheers!

                                  • Write an add-on for Mozilla Thunderbird

                                    It would be absolutely amazing if there was a dashboard tab of HootSuite available withing Thunderbird -- I would be very happy with having having all my email accounts AND social network accounts available all in one application.
                                    Currently this can sorta be done unofficially with Thunderbrowse add-on pointed to the HS dashboard website, but the URL shortener doesn't work and it's a bit unwieldy.

                                      • More space in calendar

                                        I would like to have the chance to increase, in Preferences, the space on each day on the calendar in MONTH and WEEK view. I concentrate my messages in a few hours and I don´t need the spaceof the rest of the day but yes more space in some hours to see the full list on them. Thanks in advance and congratulations !

                                        • Fix Chrome Extension

                                          The new format of HootSuite Chrome Extension looks better but, in my navigator, don't allow to post the content... the script is smaller than it's needed and I cannot to click in the button "send". Thanks you!
