  1. See what Twitter lists a user is on from the profile popup

    Similar to how Twitter.com works. When I see a user profile, I can add and remove from lists via a check list. I love the ability to add a user, but I'd like to know what lists they are on if I forget, and be able to remove them from the same place. For me, it's currently easier to go to Twitter.com and remove someone from a list than it is to stay in HootSuite. Would love something like this!

      • We Should "not" have the Google Extension Continously Advertised on our Dashboard!!!

        First of all we can't even login correctly in here Hootsuite!!! ?

        I lost the post I was compiling when I went through login process, what is the point of this disappearing, when we do this...?

        *** We Should "not" have the Google Extension Continously Advertised on our Dashboard!!!

        Either way, Hoot shouldn't be forcing things on people this needs to be removed or at least allow people the option of moving this please?

        If we don't buy something, 'whatever' this is to have this constantly 'advertise' at us... no one wants this to be the case, and it is…

        • allow indie musicians to post to apple music!

          Once an artist claims his/her profile with Apple Music, s/he can then post to fans through the Connect Tab. However, not all artists have Mac devices to do this with. It would be awesome if HootSuite could work out a deal with Apple so indie artists can post from HootSuite!

              Ow.ly URLs posted on Facebook are now trackable in Individual stats. They are not yet trackable on Summary Stats.

                • Suggested Twitter handles and hashtags as you type

                  I would love to get a suggested list as I type the way I do directly in Twitter to make sure I am matching what's already out there.

                  • Easily Viewable and Renewable OLD content

                    It would make my life so much easier if you might consider creating an easy to use UX of PAST content where we can just drag and drop old content into a new calendar for scheduling previous posts.

                    • 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!!!

                      • Have a preference where a hoot sound is made when a tweet is posted.

                        How fun would it be if there was a setting that when you posted a tweet, a cute quick "hoot" sound is made. I'd love that. Please vote for this idea.

                        • Select Team to post to in drafts

                          When a new message is composed a team can be selected to post to (it automatically selects all the social media in the team). When the message is saved and draft is opened that feature to post to team is no longer visibile.. need that feature badly, else it is painful to keep selecting individual media.

                                • 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.

                                        Thank you for your feedback! We would like to add analytics for posts in groups in the future, however, Facebook Insights currently only report on Pages.

                                      • give team members the option to turn off email notification.

                                        Give them the choice to just log in on a regular basis to retrieve assignments. For a very active team it can fill up your inbox quickly and working with young team members they don't check email so often anyway ... they are already there in HootSuite working.

                                          Interesting idea! We’ll see if other users would be interested in turning this off as well.

                                        • add the new facebook status-things like milestones

                                          add the new facebook status-things like milestones etc. to hootsuite. postings like this don´t appear in the facebook newsfeed at hootsuite.
