  1. Option to Toggle between Instagram accounts w/ Hootsuite posts

    Instagram posts need the ability to easily toggle between accounts like twitter. There is no point in using hootsuite if I have to make sure my correct account is logged into my phone. I need hootsuite to post to my intended account without my phone. Ex: use hootsuite for all business accounts and keep my personal accounts logged in on my phone. The current process for instagram posts does not save any time and creates more steps than manually going to instagram app on phone.

    • Make favoriting tweets easier

      Make the "Favorite" action a sibling to "reply" and "retweet" instead of a sub-menu deep.

      • Ddd the option to have Facebook Reviews as a stream

        Typically ALL reviews we receive come along with a message that requires investigation/back and forth with a customer. As a transit agency, often people post reviews when they are angry. We need the option to see this in our Hootsuite stream. Thank you!

        • Make it possible to choose which profile that I am commenting from.

          I manage several fan pages for multiple locations of the same company. I would like to be able to comment on a post on one page, from any one of the other pages, including my personal page.

              • Reduce your price.

                I have been using the free version for many months and would agree to pay a small sum of money to help you develop the app, but $7/month feels too much for the value, for me. Why don't you try $7 per year? Maybe you'll have lots of people willing to pay that... I would.

                • A clear message when free account has already used 3 social network

                  Has a free account, I’ve made several attempts to connect to my twitter account, to finally discover I was already using 3 social network. I’ve been misleaded by error messages asking me to try again. So I did until hootsuite-help found the solution.

                  If the message had been clear since the beginning, instead of « error » at each attempt, I wouldn’t have lost half a week trying to fix the problem...

                        • If I Mark a post spam in Hootsuite, will it get marked spam in Facebook as well?

                          does facebook recognise that and mark it as spam too?

                            I currently use the Home Feed stream to view everyone I'm following, which creates tons of duplicates when used alongside List streams.

                            • Allow facebook comments to be tagged, not just posts

                              At the moment, it's possible to use HootSuite tagging on a Facebook post, but not on a Facebook comment. As FB conversations can easily widen to cover multiple topics from multiple customers, this limits the usefulness of the tagging...?

                                Thanks for the feedback! We’ll consider extending this functionality to the comment streams.

                              • improve your suggested posts!

                                I would like to see a significant improvement in the suggested content as no matter what I put in as preferences, I end up with dribble or content that is not even close to the subject matter! It used to be really good - what happened?
                                Please do what you can to rectify this, as this is one of the major features I have used on Hootsuite and if it doesn't get better, I may have to move to a different provider for content for my clients.

                                  • I want to be able to share the Favorites stream for an account with team members

                                    We'd like to be able to assign each other tweets to proactively respond to others' tweets that don't necessarily mention us or direct message us. We figured being able to favorite those tweets and then assign them would work, but you can't share the Favorites stream.

                                    • A way to identify duplicates posted within a certain timeframe and only display a single copy.

                                      Some stream connections (flickr) can monopolize your stream and fill your screen with duplicate info that is bland and uninteresting. Not that the actual post is not cool, but because each successive post does not add value to your feed.

                                        While this is a great idea, it also depends upon what is allowed by each social network API. Nonetheless, if this function becomes available, we’ll review this for a future implementation.

                                      • Copy/Share between streams

                                        A tool/app that allows you to post/share older content between streams (eg. Post old FB Page content to new G+ Page).

                                          This is an interesting idea for us to consider in the future. How would you envision this functioning?

                                        • New feature

                                          Allow scheduled posts to be arranged by dragging and dropping on calendar or in list view.
