  1. Schedule post multiple times on same day

    Instead of a single, time drop down menu add 3 or 4 time drop down menus and next to each one a drop down menu of the social media you wish to post to.

    • Save scheduled unapproved tweets in a queue instead of deleting them automatically

      The workflow/ approval process in the Enterprise account is great. However, when a team member schedules a tweet and the administrator doesn't approve it in time, the tweet disappears. It would be great to save such scheduled unapproved tweets in a queue instead of deleting them automatically.

      • Add Ability to Adjust Column Width on the Contacts Tab

        In my account, I have several franchise locations listed with the name of the city or regional area toward the end.

        When I am in the Contacts tab, the column on the left (Twitter Profiles and Google+Page list) is not wide enough for me to see which account I am selecting. The column cuts off the name at “Overhead Door Company of” and that is all I see for the 15+ Google+ accounts. I've tried mousing over the name but that does not provide any information. Changing the account names natively in Google+ where the location comes first is not…

            • Drag and drop from "who retweeted you" window

              Because the "who retweeted you" feature is very new, there is no possibility yet to drag and drop users from the pop-up window.

              Its not always needfull to thank every retweeter, (think about bots) but it would be nice to choose by drag and drop who to thank into the same tweet.

              See this pic http://ow.ly/i/4bXOx

                  • allow users to name a stream instead of it being the search code by default

                    Streams are by default named exactly what the preferences are. I have some similar streams and it can be hard to distinguish which is which. Being able to name them myself would be great

                    • Further develop conversations.

                      As a social media manager, I am looking for better ways to empower my followers to tweet on my behalf. I love the way your conversations feature works, but it needs a little more development before I can roll it out.

                      I would love to see it updated to support your app, support push notifications, and also allow me to give permissions to who can initiate a conversation post.

                      • Allow the stream to block topics, not just users. I never want to see my friend's Justin Beiber post, but I don't want to block my friend.

                        Sometimes topics are trending, or just appearing that I never want to hear about, such as Justin Beiber, too-cute kittens, or extreme political opinions. I don't want to block users, but it would be nice to clean up my streams by not showing posts of topics of my choosing. I still want to keep the user, but just screen content/topics.

                        • Lock app if idle

                          I'd suggest you add some sort of password lock if Hootsuite is set to IDLE status.
                          Scenario: We have gone through a very uncomfortable situation in which someone added an RSS feed to a twitter account we manage, so that no one knew were those tweets were coming from, we even thought the twitter account was hacked. Thanks to support we got to know it was an RSS feed added to our Hootsuite and we don't know how the heck it got there. The only explanation was that someone added it while our session was initiated but we were not…

                                The hootsuite app keeps crashing every time I open up Notifications in app to send a scheduled instagram post. It just closes and goes black. Help?! Very frustrating as sometimes it just deletes the post altogether.

                                  • Include a "Follow from All" button

                                    We monitor two Twitter accounts with HootSuite and we almost always follow new people from both of them. Would be awesome to have an "All Accounts" button in the "Follow from?" dialog instead of having to click "Follow", pick an account, click again, pick the other one.

It is the only publication and schedule the days and times , make everything faster and easier.

                                        • Añadir búsqueda de keywords que utilizan nuestros seguidores
