  1. Add Native Support for Posting to Pinterest

    Rather than make us pay an additional $60 a year to someone else for an ad-on, I'd like to see Hootsuite add internal support for posting to Pinterest, just like I can to Google +, Twitter, FB, etc.

    • allow scheduled tweets to be paused in bulk

      Sometimes we get a call from a client to pause all activity for a period of hours/days because of some approval delay or unrelated crisis. At the moment we go into the Monthly view and drag all the scheduled stuff out an extra period of time. It would be great just to have a pause button that pauses all scheduled comms, ideally at a Team level (because a team usually works on content across one Twitter and one FB account)

        Interesting idea! We’ll look at the options for adding this functionality in the future. 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.

          A new app has recently been added to the Hootsuite App Directory, RSS Auto Publisher, that allows to append text or hashtags to a tweet as well as prepend. You can check it out here: http://ow.ly/z9okY

          • fix IFTTT integration

            The IFTTT integration has been down since Hootsuite implemented new security. Please fix it! It is a lifeline for automating social media.

              • Please return "Favorite" icon from pull-down menu.

                I think "Favorite" icon should NOT be hidden in pull-down menu.

                • Ability to export lists and other (user selected) data to Microsoft Excel

                  I use lists extensively to organize the streams that I monitor and target. I would like to be able to export All of my community (lists members, friends, followers, etc.) to excel so that I could conduct ad hoc analysis (e.g. sort by no. of followers), and add ad hoc columns per tweeter for notes, scores, etc.

                  Ideally I would be able to create a table where each community member is a row, and default columns would include twitter account follower, friend, listnames (up to 20 per account), number of followers and friends (people they follow), for each member. Any…

                  • 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!

                        • ... provide an option for adding text alternatives, such as title and long description, to tweeted images

                          When we share images without meaningful text alternatives, these images will not be accessible to our followers with visual impairments.

                          Providing text alternatives for non-text content is one of the most important accessibility requirements, but it is not always possible - or practical - to describe an image within a tweet. As far as I'm aware, Easy Chirp is the only app that makes it easy to attach both title and description to tweeted images without affecting the character count (http://www.easychirp.com/).

                          Accessibility is a legal requirement for many government departments and educational institutions, so adding this option to…

                                • allow separate searches for each of your feeds with the new suggested content feature

                                  Currently the Beta test for "Suggested Content" only allows you to run one search. If you have multiple feeds, being able to tailor or customize searches of each of those feeds is paramount to success.
                                  I would love to see this option added, so that I can tailor searches for each of my feeds.

                                  • Allow me to expand the compose message box by dragging the corner (make it as big as I'd like)

                                    The compose box is ok for Twitter, but when doing FB & G+ messages, it would be helpful to go past 4 lines. Make the box expandable to any size I want by letting me drag the corner, just like in a lot of forums. it is currently too small.

                                      Interesting idea! We’ll look at altering the design of the compose message box in the future. Thanks!

                                    • Posting to LinkedIn Showcase pages

                                      LinkedIn is creating showcase pages that are separate from the main company pages. I'd like to use HootSuite to post to those as well as company pages so I don't have to do this process manually for my client.

                                      • Schedule Facebook post for scheduled, but yet unpublished blog post

                                        It's great that we can schedule facebook posts with the image, but the blog post has to be live to do this. I would love the ability to enter my blog admin credentials so when I schedule a week's worth of blog posts to auto post in the future I can also pre-schedule the facbook posts before the blog post has gone live. We need a way for hootsuite to get into the blog and pull the info. Or whichever way is best; the bottom line is: it doesn't do any good to schedule a facebook post for a blog…
