  1. I want to rename a stream

    Hi,
    I have set up a few geocode search streams.
    My problem is that they appear as:
    Human rights geocode:51.4688672,-0.2548867,35km
    Human rights geocode:52.50,13.42,35km
    Human rights geocode:27.42,89.68,300km

    I struggle to identify which one is UK, Germany, or Bhutan.

    It would be very useful to have an option to rename stream.

      Great idea! Thanks for sending this is. We’ll look at implementing this in the future.

    • Posting to LinkedIn Showcase pages

      LinkedIn is creating showcase pages that are separate from the main company pages. I'd like to use HootSuite to post to those as well as company pages so I don't have to do this process manually for my client.

        • Allow tagging in twitter pictures

          Let us tag people in our twits just as easy as twitter does when i have to go there to twit a picture with tagged accounts because I can't do it from hootsuite.

            Hello,

            I work for a large travel agency and my company has been using enterprise version of your software for quite some time. In addition, we have also been using CoTweet to fill in some gaps that we encountered with HootSuite, both browser and mobile versions. However, and due to my almost personal connection to HootSuite as I also use it for my private account, I wanted to share with you, in this private manner some of the things that would greatly rise value of HootSuite in the eyes of my company's leads, and I will be the first one…

              This is a great idea. We’ll continue to monitor this feature request to gauge support amongst other HootSuite users.

            • Manage the new foursquare pages from Hootsuite

              Foursquare has recently launched their pages for business, would be great to be able to manage them from hootsuite

              • Create Customization options for the Publisher Suggested Content feature.

                I would prefer to link to content that is relevant to my audience in Norfolk, UK rather than Norfolk, Virginia in the USA. Being able to choose where the content gets pulled from would allow this.

                • Enable us to delete Google+ posts within HootSuite.

                  It's possible to delete Facebook and Twitter posts from within HootSuite, but this feature seems to be missing for Google+ posts.

                  Can you please make it possible for us to delete Google+ posts within HootSuite? That would be really convenient. Thanks for considering the idea!

                  • Improve Hootlet

                    Hello everyone,

                    The Hootsuite Hootlet recently underwent some broad changes in order to align more closely with Facebook's Platform Policy, specifically section 2.3. You can find an explanation of this policy at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/review/prefill

                    Due to the nature and urgency behind these changes, we were forced to make some uncomfortable compromises around Hootlet’s behaviour. These changes were broadly applied to all content regardless of the ultimate network being published to as a matter of expediency, not as a design preference.

                    Work is currently underway to restore much of Hootlet’s original functionality, while remaining compliant with Facebook’s Platform Policy. The teams behind…

                      Hello everyone,

                      Today we will begin rolling out the latest in our series of Hootlet improvements. The new features will begin appearing for some users at 11:30 AM PDT, and should be available to everyone by the end of the day.

                      This release has the following improvements:

                      - Improved graphical Link Previews

                      - A Live Preview for text-only networks such as Twitter, which shows you exactly how your post will appear

                      - Improved logic for preserving text you typed while switching your target networks

                      - Writing a custom message will now not insert the Page Title into your Twitter posts, allowing you full control over your message

                      - Pasting the link URL into the message box will prevent Hootlet from auto-inserting the link into your Twitter message, giving you full control over where the link appears in your message, allowing you to place hashtags or mentions at the end,…

                    • Lower the price for new analytics. $50/ per report is very high

                      The reports look great, but at 10x the monthly cost of a pro membership, they seem very overpriced, considering most of the data you can get for free from their respective networks.

                      • Choosing week's first day

                        Most countries start their week on Monday, while others do it on Sunday. Being able to choose whether the week starts on Sunday or on Monday would make it easier for people scheduling their tasks on the calendar.

                        • add email notifications

                          My client currently uses CoTweet and I use Hootsuite. I am trying to convince them to switch to Hootsuite and upgrade to an Enterprise plan but they absolutely need the ability to receive email notifications when they are mentioned in a post or someone replies to a post. Is this a functionality you are considering?

                            or indeed any custom filter. This could be achieved easily by allowing operators such as '-term' or 'NOT term' to the existing filter system.

                            • Attach images to bulk uploads / bulk scheduling.

                              As images and videos are key to increasing engagement, I don't see much point in bulk uploading scheduled posts (particularly for a specific campaign) if you're not allowed to attached images to the posts as well. If we have to go in and edit the scheduled posts to add images individually after doing a bulk upload, we haven't really saved any time to schedule. Even if the only images we could use in bulk uploads would be ones that have a web URL directing toward them (and not necessarily new files from our local machines), that would still be an…

                                Hello Everyone,

                                Thank you for your feedback. We are currently redesigning our Bulk Upload feature from the ground up, and the ability to attach images will definitely be included in this version, along with better error report, editing, previews, and a whole new user interface. Initially the ability attach images will be manual, but we will expand it in future versions.

                                We will begin rolling out this feature as an optional beta in July for Pro and Enterprise users, so keep your eye out for an invite to switch to the new version in the Bulk Uploader. Feel free to try it out without worry, as you can always switch back.

                                During the beta period, we will be actively soliciting feedback from our users, and directing our development efforts based upon that feedback, so be sure to tell us what you think, often!

                                Thank you for your continued support.

                                John…

                                • Allow private messages for Facebook profile account

                                  Although available for facebook pages, it would make my life a lot easier if I had this option on my profile account too.

                                    • Google+ Pages - Allow +1 and Reshares

                                      Allow for doing a +1 on posts in our Google+ Page stream (like the Facebook stream allows a Like) and also the ability to do a reshare of someone's post in the stream (like the Twitter stream allows a retweet). t is too cumbersome to open each post in a browser window every time you want to perform these functions. The ability to comment on a post in the stream does work well already.

                                      • Add a way to delete, edit and otherwise refine streams shared with a team.

                                        I often share streams with my team, but they are not always useful for forever. I'd like to be able to delete, edit or otherwise be able to control and refine these shared streams.
                                        This would reduce clutter and make it easier for team members to find new shared streams.

                                        • Create Billing Email Address or Phone

                                          I spent 20 minutes looking for a billing email or phone number. It is not appropriate to ask customers to post billing issues on a forum or send a message on social media. I am not sure how anyone thought that was acceptable. Billing issues, concerns, or questions are PRIVATE.
