    Please consider adding the ability to create/schedule posts in fb and twitter since you've already got oauth connection.

    Please could you work on adding South Africa to your list of countries. That would be appreciated.

    it would be nice to be able to archive old clients/projects so they're not filing up the dashboard — but they're not deleted either (in case you need to go back or reactivate the client).

    Please can you add an option where we can download all of our locations along with all of the data that brightlocal holds for each location. This would need to be put into an excel file. It will help with auditing our citations.

    We talked at SMX West about some of these points (thanks for taking the time to answer my questions!) and I have been slow to request a couple of features:
    1) I would love to see an icon for searches that include a spot zero / rich result, much like your icon for searches that feature YouTube and local pack results.
    2) Could you add a unique indicator for cases where a new URL shows up for a term that was already ranking? After restructuring a site, it can be difficult for clients to track URLs (sometimes upward movement is hidden behind a blue plus symbol). Perhaps an orange plus symbol or an orange up/down arrow would be enough to indicate that a previously ranking URL was replaced with a different URL in SERPs? This could also help when tracking multiple sites on the same report.
    3) Finally, it would be great if the URL also included which boxes were checked in the "Rankings by Position" summary. To explain: typically, the ranking summary includes all views for all available search engines (Google desktop/organic/mobile, Yahoo, Bing). In the event that I want to highlight, say, only Google mobile/desktop results or only map results over the course of a specific time period, I have to download a PDF, take a screenshot, or tell the recipient to check only the two boxes I want to be reflected in the summary. It would be nice to have the option to do this via URL as well.

    Thank you!

    For CitationBurst, when you purchase a citation it doesn't always go away. I purchased the Neustar aggregator twice without knowing until I looked at a previous campaign. Would be nice to keep those updated so that I wouldn't have to ask for a refund!
