Syncing Desktop and Mobile App Team Member Notifications and Assignments

Show me when a team member has responded to tweets - I'm not seeing this feature on the iPhone app.

(Previously this request included "When I make changes to my desktop app, I would like those same changes to take place on my iPhone. " For more information on this feature, please see:

        So pleased this is under review, we vitally vitally need this. Couldn't agree more with the other comments about how debilitating this is currently for teams that work on the go.

      • J.B.J.B. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This feature MUST be added. I think it's ridiculous that it's not. I keep finding more and more holes in the premium version as I continue to use it. Seriously considering canceling - Hootsuite is almost making it hard to collaborate on social accounts with the rest of my team.

      • Marie SchultzMarie Schultz commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Do you guys even read these comments? This request was made 3 years ago and collaboration still isn't included in the mobile app. That's the entire reason we're using HootSuite! People in Communications and PR live on their mobiles as they're always in the field, this is a necessity for your customers.

      • Skeeter HarrisSkeeter Harris commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is a major flaw in your product, that with everything being mobile and needing to respond to tweets and posts on the go without tracking who replied is just ridiculous. Why should I continue to pay for my pro service when this is how you support your products?

      • JeffJeff commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This really needs to happen. This would get me to pay for this service. It's a mobile world. With out it the mobile apps are point less who wants to look at 100 tweets on one device then go to another device & try to figure out where they where. It all needs to sync so no matter where you are or what device you have so can pick up from where you left off. This is just a no brainer in today's world. I really want to like & use this service but with out syncing this is a nonstarter

        So I can only work as a team from a desktop? in today's mobile world? Gosh, you really need to make this happen ASAP

      • Marc Marc commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please give this some serious consideration. Currently mobile is pretty useless as you run the risk of doubling up responses or even worse - not replying to a query because you missed it in real-time.

        Apple or Andriod, either one is fine for me. I'd switch me phone if I could get this!

      • Meghan KraneMeghan Krane commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please add this functionality - it's really important when we have multiple team members working from mobile devices on the same streams. It would also be nice to be able to assign tweets and leave notes from the mobile device.

        The main reason my company uses Hootsuite is to allow different employees to respond to tweets. If the iPhone and iPad apps could show which tweets were responded to and by whom, like the normal web app, it would be a huge benefit for us.

      • JoyceJoyce commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        It doesn't show on the iPhone app which tweets have been replied to AND it doesn't show on the dashboard which tweets were replied to on the app. This creates a lot of repeat replies which we don't see until it's too late. Highly unprofessional.

        This is about synchronising the read/unread items across platforms.
        As an example, I use Google Reader for all my RSS feeds. No matter what platform I use - iPhone, desktop at work, at home, the read items don't show up and I never waste time going over things I've already looked at.
        With Hootsuite I often find myself struggling to keep up with an active Twitter and FB feed, made worse by jumping between phone and desktops, home and work, even different computers at home.
        I find myself looking through 50 tweets only to realise I've already gone through them on a different platform. Syncing read posts would be a major time saver. Thanks for considering and for a great service

      • DutchUmbrellaDutchUmbrella commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I don't change my layout very often, but when I do, I deinstall the iphone app and reinstall it. hootsuite then has the changes I made. It's a bother, but a way to make it work.

      • MaAnnaMaAnna commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I'd like to be able to select which device is the source. I manage columns/follows mainly on iPad and would like it to be the source when I sync to my desktop version.

      • Phyllis KharePhyllis Khare commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        If you can make this happen - I can do 90% of all my work on the iPad - which would be awesome. I already pay for this for working on a computer - why not add it for the iPad?
