  1. Publish on fb groups text+link+images at random range of time to avoid spam

    I need some option to send at random over a range of time the message text + image + link to facebook groups. For fb not considered spam and published the images,and not just text + link. Maybe i can publish to 3 groups at a time to complete the list.

    • Have analytics for impressions on a monthly basis.. not just weekly

      Right now you only show impressions on a weekly basis. This would be better to have as an option on a monthly basis.

        • Create a light web version of HootSuite

          I'd love to use HootSuite in an online version, like I could easily just sign in using my username/password and do all the basic things of HootSuite. :)

          • Offer "Click to activate" option

            More of Hootsuite has become "mouse cursor rollover to activate", which is fine if you can accurately place the cursor on exactly the bit you want.

            But this disadvantages those users who cannot (through disability, illness, etc.) place the cursor accurately, and find that menu options activate when the user didn't want them to.

            Surely it wouldn't be hard to have a "Click to activate" option, which would then mean Hootsuite satisfies both types of user.

            • Save failed messages as drafts instead of "tap to retry"

              When a message is attempting to be sent and fails, the current HootSuite for iOS application displays a failure message at the top of the screen and you can tap it to retry to send the message. However, in practice, the message almost always fails again repeatedly with no way to go back to drafting the message or to save it for later.

              Instead of the "tap to retry" error message, it would be useful to save the message into a draft form which isn't lost if the message fails. The user would simply need to navigate to the draft…

              • get a broader scope of resources for "suggested content"

                No matter what topic I choose, the sources suggested always include MSNBC, CNN and HuffingtonPost or some obscure blog. I would like to see a more nuetral fact based content sheet. I know that is hard to find, but I find I cannot post things from these sites as the vast majority of our client base would not read anything from these site.

                • RSS Feed - filtering for specific info before publishing

                  it would be great to have the option to to filter RSS Feed when I Enable RSS for publishing? (example is I want to post only articles "by" a specific person on the blog site where there are multiple authors)

                      Currently, you can add someone to a list either through drag and drop, or clicking the “Add to List” button on their profile view.

                      We’ll explore other options.

                    • Ow.ly links on Twitter - show full address

                      I always feel reluctant to clink a link where I do not know the destination and I'm sure my followers probably feed similar. It would be helpful if the status bar in the browser could show the long address rather than the short address

                      • Advanced search filter for content suggestions

                        I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that content suggestions are either a hit or a miss. It would be nice to have an advanced search filter much like the Google engine search filter.

                        In addition to searching for keywords, you should also be able to exclude other keywords.

                        (ex. Human Resources and Home Runs are both categorized as "HR." It would be nice to be able to search for HR and exclude the words baseball, pitcher, etc.)

                        • I want to use the Calendar view in Publisher as a content calendar.

                          I want to use the Calendar view in Publisher as a content calendar. So I can plan and replan without the risk to publish an post that are more of a draft and ideas.

                          Now we are working in excel and a Whiteboard with post-it notes.

                          • change the way the "Scheduled Tweets" stream acts when scheduling.

                            Every time a person schedules a tweet, the "Scheduled Tweets" stream goes back to the top. This is extremely annoying when scheduling multiple posts, which often occurs in chronological order. I am part of a team and have to scroll from the top almost every time I schedule something to ensure no one else has used that time slot. I understand that some degree of scrolling would have to happen regardless, but from the top every time?!? There must be a better way!

                            • new feature

                              I have heard about hootsuite as an effective platform through which an individual's or an entity's social media accounts may be managed. I don't see anything pertaining to email accounts and since email is a form (simplistic) of social media, is there any plan to allow hootsuite users to access web-based email accounts via their hootsuite account?

                                • automatically clear the cache and refresh after I block someone.

                                  If I block someone, it's usually because they just said something gross to me. I immediately clear the cache so I don't have to see it on my screen anymore. It would be great if Hootsuite did this automatically, since going to preferences and clearing the cache takes a few extra clicks.

                                          I want to filter the tweets in the columns by number of favorites or retweets. For example: filter tweets with 2 favorites or more.
