  1. Ensure Image Preview Generation across 'Scheduled' FB/MYSP posts. (not just the link)

    I have a FB (personal) & 2 FB (PAGES). I also have a Myspace & Twitter. I want image preview on all except Twitter but the system is only image previewing on one of the FB (Pages) & nowhere else when 'scheduling' is used. So I end up manually reposting my content on MYSp & FB by hand when image preview fails after scheduled Hootsuite post.

      • Make it possible to like from a specific account when clicking the like button in streams

        When using Hootsuite with multiple twitter accounts if you click the like button on a tweet in a stream it comes from the account used to sign up to Hootsuite.

        Unlike the RT button which allows you to choose which twitter account to use.

        • Recurring Posts

          There should be a set up recurring posts daily! There can be an option to slightly change the wording in the post! Customized Auto Scheduler that allows you to select how many days, weeks, months of auto schedule like google calendar! This will drastically save time!

            • Post to Facebook event page

              I run alot of events and would love to have the ability to have Hootsuite post to the event page(s).

              Many viewers will join the event page without following the person who is hosting the event. This becomes a problem since they wont be able to see the post on the page who is hosting the events.

              Adding this feature will help us communicate with anyone who is viewing the event page.

              Thank you

              • add the option to write a first comment with scheduled posts

                Many other scheduling programs allow you to write a first comment that is scheduled along with the original post content. This is an incredibly helpful tool and a standard in the industry. When will Hootsuite do the same?

                • Enhance the Twitter Sentiment report to include drill-down of underlying post data.

                  This would provide for detailed sentiment cause information and allow strategic action to be taken to leverage and/or take corrective actions

                  • Drag-reorder scheduled tweets in the Pending stream

                    The pending stream is the main way that I personally interact with my various network's scheduled updates, it would be great if you could add the ability to drag-drop reorder tweets from the stream, rather than navigate through to the publisher's calendar view as it would speed up the process greatly

                      When I tried to edit an scheduled message, I wasn't able to add other networks I hadn't added when I created the message.

                      • Referral Program

                        I suggest you create a referral program for paying members. I saw the affiliate program, but I would like to be rewarded for sharing with co-workers.

                        • Change the "compose message" box

                          Make the "compose message" box a floating box that can be moved around the screen - Current option interferes with viewing the most recent tweets/messages on your screen - Makes responding difficult and frustrating. If it was a "pop-up" box that could be clicked and dragged across the screen, you could then manipulate the placement depending on your needs. Thank you! :)

                            Hello there,

                            Thanks for submitting your feedback! While this is not in the immediate roadmap, we can see how this customization would be very beneficial to the Dashboard!

                            We hope to revisit this again in the future.

                            Great idea!

                          • Include Targeting Options within Facebook Post Scheduling

                            Facebook recently came out with the option to choose targeting to a specific interests within your audience. I've been testing the difference and there seems to be a large spike in engagement when I choose this targeting similarly to setting up Facebook ads.

                            The problem is I do not have the option or so I don't think so when I go to schedule a Facebook post. This is certainly an option that I would like.

                            • Viewing notifications across social media channels within Hootsuite

                              I would like to be able to check all notifications across social media accounts from Hootsuite, however when I log into Hootsuite i cannot find suitable options to do this.

                              For example, when I log into twitter I can click on notifications and see all recent activity.

                              It would be great if a similar option was available through Hootsuite.

                              Thanks,

                              Danielle

                                  • In the scheduled posts, show a thumbnail of the photo that will be posted

                                    In the scheduled posts, show a thumbnail of the photo that will be posted. A) this will confirm that a photo is attached and B) it will be faster to search through and find specific posts for editing

                                    • Restore ability to post without link from bookmarklet

                                      Before a recent update, it was possible to post a message *without* a link by using the Hootsuite bookmarklet in the browser and deleting the link.

                                      This is no longer possible. (see http://i.imgur.com/B0rIfYR.jpg)

                                      Please restore the ability to completely delete the link so we can post a message-only update without visiting the dashboard. This regression has markedly reduced Hootsuite's usefulness and left me looking for alternatives.

                                        • Empty message with Facebook link attachment

                                          Granted, you can't send an "empty" message. But updates with link attachment are not "empty", so please support the ability to post a link without any message in the box
