        • Allow check-in at places listed in History for foursquare, etc. & show place names.

          It would be nice to be able to go back in your check-in history on foursquare, etc and be able to check-in to a previous place. Especially useful if you frequent the same locations and don't want to wait for the list/map to load.

              This is a great idea that we are currently looking into. We try and update our Community Support Forum with this information as often as possible. Please take a look here: hootsuite.com/forum and let me know what you think! :)

            • Better support for Invoices

              At the moment HootSuite are not able to generate an invoice exactly the same as the one originally emailed to you, so if you didn't receive the message, nobody will be able to help you. The Billing History has partial information only and isn't an exact record of those invoices emailed to you. Not a friendly invoice system

              • Have the shortened url go to where ever the cursor is placed

                Right now I have a set up macro that calls for several links within a tweet (itunes vs beatport for ex) and I would love for when I go to shorten the link it will populate where I have placed my cursor instead of the end of the entire tweet making me have to cut and paste the data. If efficiency is key, this will shave off considerable time in the long run.

                  • Display retweets differently

                    Hey Folks,

                    I've noticed that in my streams sometimes I will see the same tweet several times in a row - sometimes over a dozen times. It is a bit confusing and clutters up the stream. Apparently this is due to retweets. I think it would be optimal to show the retweets only once - similar to how you show personal streams when I get retweeted it just shows a little button that I can click that shows who retweeted me.

                    • Create a way for us to post in the two separate boxes in Linkedin Groups

                      In Linkedin Groups there are two boxes you are supposed to use when posting. The first box is for the title of the post and the second box is for the post itself. Hootsuite is unable to identify the two boxes as separate so when I schedule a message to be posted in the groups, it automatically tries to post everything into that first box. The problem is the first box only accepts a limited number of characters. The full post is supposed to be posted in the second box. So when Hootsuite tries to post, it automatically sends back…

                      • Add the ability to post to a custom URL

                        Ping.fm allowed for a "Custom URL" that passed the information to an external page on my website. This allowed me to post quick announcements with a text message or email.

                          Hi there! Can you please clarify what you are looking to do? I’m not super familiar with the Ping.fm product.

                            • Distinguish better which profile will be used for posting on a group

                              If you have multiple profiles with access to the same group to post there is no way to distinguish them on the dropdown when choosing the group to post, so there is no way of knowing which profile linked to that group will be used to perform the post... Horrible Experience!

                                  The green plus sign to add a stream gets in the way when I am scrolling through tweets. Not a bad idea for novice users, but I would like a setting to be able to remove it.

                                    Thank you! We thought the hide option would be sufficient, but if you are still finding it in the way, we’ll consider this for future improvements.

                                    It would be great to be able to follow specific users accounts on Facebook (essentially creating a Twitter list), and then have the ability to reshare content from these users to your social channels

                                      • hide tabbar when there's only one tab

                                        To optimize the use of the screen, maybe it is possible to hide the tabbar when there's only one active tab. I've placed all streams on one tab.

                                        • add a logfile for team actions

                                          I need to have a track of every change made by a team member (post/tweet/comment). It's more a legal/security issue for my custromer. Doesn't have to be sexy, a simple logfile would do the job.

                                          Thx!
