    • 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.

            • "Select All" when in "Favorite Network" view should only affect that view.

              If you select "All" in the favorites view of the networks drop down list, Hootsuite selects All networks - not just All Favorites. See the difference?

                • Hi, I have a nifty segestão for HootSuite

                  Hi, I have a nifty segestão for HootSuite, when we get to post the APP by HootSuite Chorme / Firefox or even the main site, I suggest you let saved the day and time of the last posting facilitating the next posting in putting forward this could be done by a button on / Off setting for those who like to use as well and who does not like to stay as it is normally.

                    Hi Jermias!
                    Thanks for the suggestion. To clarify, you’d like each post to automatically skip ahead to the next time for scheduling? Have you tried the Autoschedule? It will stay turned ‘on’ until you post without it.

                    • Move the notifications beside the profile select dropdown

                      Currently when you forget to select a profile the message notification that pops up covers the profile select dropdown so you have to wait till it goes away before you can use it. I'd say use the space that's beside it for notifications as it's currently empty.

                        That’s a great idea that could improve the user experience. We’ll consider the feasibility of this change in the future. Thanks!

                      • Scheduler time slot presets

                        Would like scheduler time slot presets, that would post at set times.

                        For example, I use a competitor to post my message bin at 0600, 1200, 1800, 0000. That way my readers come to expect when messages arrive and I do not disturb them all day; also keeps them from thinking I have nothing better to do than post all day long.

                          • Me facturaron todo un año sin mi consentimiento, quiero que se cancele el pago por el total del año, o bien solo cobren este mes.

                            Hola! Me di de alta con la cuenta gratuita y me acaba de llegar a la tarjeta el plan anual de la versión paga y hacia 15 dias que no usaba hootsuite, el pago se realizo sin mi consentimiento. La herramienta esta muy buena, pero la facturación es abusiva. Quiero que se cancele el pago anual de US$107,88 o bien que solo me cobren este mes. Aguardo respuesta lo antes posible. Gracias!!!
