  1. allow assignments from Facebook Activity streams

    When I look in the help article, it says you can assign Facebook messages and comments from ANY Facebook stream in Hootsuite. However, I find that it's not possible to assign post comments from the Activity stream. You have to find the original post, and then assign the comment from within the post. It's really impractical.

    • Notifications to Twitter (mentions, RTs and new followers) and Facebook (like and commentary)

      Notifications on Dashborad to Twitter (mentions, RTs and new followers) and Facebook (like and commentary)

      Hey guys, what do you think about the dashboard have sound notifications everytime a receive a mention or a RT?
      You offer just the option to have a notification everytime i receive any message in my timeline, and it is really anoying.

        Hi there! The notifications occur based on the active tab on the dashboard. Have you tried creating a tab just for the mentions or RT streams you’d like updates for?

      • twitter messages - have twitter inbox messages show conversation instead of just the reply

        introduce a similar thing to what you have for mentions to inbox replies ie show the conversation to what was originally said

        • Improving Filter Options

          I have a few suggestions for improving the filtering options for a specific stream.

          1) When changing the search preferences for a stream where you want to filter out a specific source (ex: "-source:Iketobot Beta"), allow the use of spaces to filter things out that are multiple word sources. Right now that doesn't seem possible. In addition, some sources need to be filtered that have special characters (ex: "-source:RSS/Ping") which can't be done as the "/" causes an issue.

          2) Allow for global preferences to filter out certain usernames from tweets. Depending on your search stream, you could get a…

          • allow tagging other accounts on photos for Twitter

            Every time I want to tag another account in a photo for a scheduled tweet instead of using up characters, I have to tweet natively from Twitter.

            • Allow me to pin a different profile based on which tab is open.

              I can pin a profile to decide which profile I wish to post as by default. It would be nice to be able to set different default profiles depending which tab is open.

                • Removal of "via" from a Tweet detail

                  Hi can I suggest that the name of the app used in Tweeting be removed from the Tweet details? Only the time and the date will be left! It;ll help make Twitter more comfortable place to post with! It's so discriminating seeing that my friend uses "Twitter for iPhone" to Tweet me while I'm using "Mobile Web" to reply to him/her. I'm doing this suggestion to make HootSuite not just comfortable with my part but also to make it more consistent to use compare to other apps!
                  Thanks! I hope you'll put a consideration on my idea!

                  Sincerely,
                  Francis Park

                    Hi there!

                    This only shows in Twitter clients at this time, Twitter natively has removed it. In a future API change, this will also be removed from Twitter apps. We’ll update this thread when this change occurs. Thanks for your feedback!

                    will you please remove the Advanced icon from the URL shortener box? When I paste a URL in that box the little gear icon covers up some of the URL characters so I can't see if all the characters are correct

                        • Horrible

                          Scheduling is an absolute disaster. The interface is balls, the posting is clunky, and for being one if the primary benefits, it seems like an afterthought. Your bulk upload option is a joke. I literally write a tweet in Twitter and copy it over because it's so terrible. Get your shit together -- being in tech, it's honestly embarrassing. I won't be renewing after my one month free trial.

                                I really am having trouble with the office excel way to schedule - I use Edgar and like that I can have busy days and Edgar will just pick some old posts as long as I have them scheduled. I really need that.

                                  • Set up a new way to upload images that isn't Flash-based. In Windows 8, I haven't been able to upload images via Hootsuite.

                                    Maybe an HTML-based interfase or a secret e-mail link. If I want to upload images, I must use 7 or XP.
