I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Allow the creation and editing of Facebook events.

    I think being able to create Facebook events for each Facebook page from the dashboard would be extremely useful. That way, I wouldn't have to leave my HS dashboard to create and edit events and I could also send links to the events via twitter and other networks.

    • Add the Twitter 'interactions' tab to the stream so users no longer miss important interactions with their followers.

      We constantly miss RT's notices and other interactions with our users since Hootsuite doesn't allow users to import 'interactions' data. Please add ASAP!

      • Allow Schedule and Upload of pictures to Facebook without needing a Twitter account as well!?

        I can't believe it's not possible to upload/or schedule a picture to be uploaded to Facebook without the requirement/necessity of having a Twitter Account as well. Sort this out please Hootsuite, this is a basic requirement.

          Hello,

          While we do not have this on our roadmap at this time, this feature is currently under review.

          To explain, we require the Twitter authentication to upload images to our Ow.ly servers, so that each user has their own Ow.ly image account with us that they can log into and access at any time by heading to http://Ow.ly.

          To learn more about this, please head to https://help.hootsuite.com/entries/21570832-attaching-images-or-files-to-messages.

          Thank you.

        • allow images to appear in Facebook group postings rather than links

          It is better to have the images uploaded as it is able to draw attention of potential clients. The image will auto describe our advertising status in multiple biz groups.

            Thank you for your feedback, we’ll be looking in whether this is possible with the Facebook API.

          • Twitter Stream API

            Twitter has a stream API which allows a live view of the users twitter stream. Documentation is here http://dev.twitter.com/pages/streaming_api. TweetDeck (and ChromeDeck), and Seesmic both support it, and it's a great feature, would be awesome to have it in hootsuite too.

            • Rotate Ow.ly images

              Can't believe that with the inevitable phone upload not being properly in portrait or landscape that Hootsuite doesn't give us any way to rotate. Seriously??

                Hi everyone!
                We will continue to look into ways that Owly images can be better manipulated after an upload (such as rotating).
                However, for users that are having trouble with pictures uploading with the wrong rotation, we do have a suggestion. Many users have found that toggling the orientation lock on their mobile device, specifically iOS, has resolved this issue. To do so on iOS, double tap the home button, swipe once left and press the orientation button.
                If this doesn’t resolve the issue for you, don’t worry! We’ll still keep this feedback item under review.
                Thanks!
                Sarah @HootSuite_Help – http://hootsuite.com/help

              • Post Facebook photo without using the owl.ly image hosting.

                Sometimes I post images which I like the user to be able to view on the Facebook page without clicking the owl.ly link. It would be great if these images could be uploaded to the Facebook page (with a chosen image folder).

                  • add the possibility to remove the hashtag "#" when posting differently than twitter ?

                    It's good to have the "#" symbol for twitter.
                    Then, when your post is going to facebook or linkedin, you have the "#" symbol before some words.
                    But for people who don't know the meaning of the "#", it seems strange .. so it maybe a good idea to have an option to remove the "#" when posting to Facebook or Linkedin (elsewhere thant twitter).
                    Thank you.

                      • Hide Games from Facebook Updates

                        When FB friends post updates with games they are playing (like Farmville) I like to hid them. They don't show up on FB after I hide them, but they keep showing up in Hootsuite. Hidden people are removed from Hootsuite, but not hidden games

                          • Schedule Facebook post for scheduled, but yet unpublished blog post

                            It's great that we can schedule facebook posts with the image, but the blog post has to be live to do this. I would love the ability to enter my blog admin credentials so when I schedule a week's worth of blog posts to auto post in the future I can also pre-schedule the facbook posts before the blog post has gone live. We need a way for hootsuite to get into the blog and pull the info. Or whichever way is best; the bottom line is: it doesn't do any good to schedule a facebook post for a blog…

                              Instead of kicking the toggle back and forth between Auto-Schedule and not, I would like to see a way that RTs or replies are not auto-scheduled and it is recognized that, that information should be sent in real time.

                                    HootSuite now has filters based on keyword and Klout score. This feature is currently exclusive to users on a Pro plan.

                                    Filters based on application and user is also something worth considering.

                                    • Add an option to AutoSchedule Rss Feeds

                                      It would be great to have the option to select "Auto Schedule" for the RSS feed publishing. This will help prevent our accounts to post too many things at once. The only options are the frequency of which HootSuite will check the RSS feeds.
                                      Thank you!

                                        This is a great idea! We’ll look into implementing this in the future. Thank you!

                                      • Enable messages to be pulled in from LinkedIn & Facebook

                                        It seems that I can't pull in a stream of my direct messages from Facebook & LinkedIn where I can with Twitter. This means I can't get away from using LinkedIn & Facebook entirely. I can't imagine this would be a difficult feature to add, but what do I know?
