  1. have multiple images attached to post get sent in same post

    When you attach multiple images to a post through Hootsuite right now it posts as a separate post for each image attached, but with that same description. Right now I am trying to attach a graphic for a promotion for a client and another image of the coupon, and they are going as two separate posts...I then end up having to post directly on Facebook which defeats purpose of Hootsuite Pro.

    • Provide relevant content that corresponds to the key words in tweets and profile bio for suggested content.

      I don't know how you choose the potential tweets for your suggested content feature. I was disappointed to find that all the suggestions for @braylearning were to do with American social media marketing and American technology, with a smattering of US politics. Could you select suggested content via key words in the Twitter bio, geographic location, regularly used hashtags and tweet content. I was expecting content relating to learning and development, training, HR. I tried switching the 3 search terms to these but got no change in the kind of results I was offered.

      • Give option to change publisher default to week view

        Whenever I open publisher, my first action is always to switch from the list view to the more useful week view, which I use to plan tweets over the next few days. Bonus if you make it so we can see past and scheduled simultaneously.

        • View Shares for Facebook Page Posts

          I have an important post on a Facebook page which requires people to share it to enter a prize draw. I have to see how many people and who shared this post. Right now there is no option to see 'Shares' on streams which is a big short-coming.

          • autoschedule

            It's super annoying that I can't send out a post to more than one social network at separate times to avoid exactly the same post hitting multiple social platforms at exactly the same time.
            Most of the other platforms allow you to enter a specific time for release on any given day and you simply add your content to the queue, which automatically gets syndicated at the designated time.
            For example, twitter might be set to post at 9am, 1pm and 5pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
            Facebook might be 10am and 3pm, Tuesday and Wednesday.

            • make the date and time stamp darker, any reflection on the screen and I can't read it.

              The other thing that now doesn't work are the blue dots that indicated unread messages. I also have to now scroll to find the new messages and as I stated, the date and time stamp is very hard to see, especially with any reflection on the screen.

              • Enable Multiple Dates when Scheduling

                Make it easier to schedule a single post (with art) on multiple dates. Bulk upload is too messy and complicated, especially if you have to go back and upload art. I should be able to schedule a post for, say, each Monday without copying and pasting and reuploading art.

                  • Allow users to Auto Schedule to more than 5 profiles

                    Why are we limited to 5 accounts when scheduling a post?

                      Thanks for clarifying! I’ll update this request to reflect that.

                      We’ll look into allowing users to auto schedule to more than 5 profiles in the future, however network restrictions may prevent us from doing so.

                    • Enable A/B testing of each Tweet: test wording to see which provides the highest CTR on the link

                      As part of a Freemium web model, allow users to test the wording for a Tweet with two boxes in which to send the same Tweet, but using different wording in each one. Messages get sent to 200 random followers, and the message with the highest CTR on the link gets sent out to the rest of the followers.

                        • upload to pic.twitter.com also from Hootlet

                          Great feature for pro users, the ability to upload directly to pic.twitter.com since tweets with pics have a lot more engagement. I recommend to do the same when publishing from Hootlet Chrome Extension, when right-clicking on an image and select "Share image via Hootsuite Hootlet"

                          • Campaigns Language

                            Hello, I want to use HS campaigns in Turkish. I can change some of the titles but I can't change most of them. Which makes it impossible for me to use the campaigns as some of them are in English and some of them are in Turkish. I believe it will be a minor development for just opening the editing properties of all the attributes in campaigns so that we can use it in any language.

                            Thank you,
                            Sincerely,
                            Barış Tanzer

                                Hi Carsten!

                                Here’s the Help Desk article on how to save the comments as a stream : http://help.hootsuite.com/entries/22268661-Saving-Comments-as-Streams
                                Once you save it as a stream, new comments will be marked with a new icon.

                                We likely won’t be adding a default view to show all comments as many of our users have posts with hundreds of comments, and this would decrease performance substantially. Please let me know how this goes!

                              • Reduced price for Pro

                                I love Hootsuite, and I've used it since it started. I am, however not impressed with the pricing structure. You jump from free to $9.99/month. That jumps you from 3 networks to 50. Why not have something in the middle, even multiple options?

                                Why not something for 10 networks or 8 or whatever for say $1.99 or $5.99/month?

                                I will never upgrade to Pro unless there's some compromise. I will never need 50 networks, but I need more than 3.

                                To me that's a ridiculous span. Please consider some lower-priced options, with limited features, compared to the current Pro offering.

                                  I have a stream that's a particular Twitter list. But I can't search that stream for a hashtag or phrase using quotation marks. Instead, I HAVE to view every tweet in the stream. :(
