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".

  1. Email alerts for failed scheduled updates

    Having updates go out on time is important. If updates aren't going out as scheduled, I need to know ASAP - even if I'm not logged in to Hootsuite.

      I can definitely understand how useful this feature would be. I’ve put this under review with our development team for further consideration. Thank you for your feedback!

    • Add Google+ Personal Profiles

      Many of you have been asking for Google+ profiles to be supported. A great idea, which we'll look into!

        Thanks for all the support of this idea! Google+ profiles are not currently available through their public API but we will continue to monitor the situation closely. Once Google releases this possibility, we’ll certainly look at integrating personal profiles.

      • 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.

        • Ability to "Share" Facebook posts within HootSuite

          Ability to "Share" a Facebook post would be extremely useful for information proliferation. Such a tool would significantly enhance HootSuite's capabilities on data and profile management.

            • facebook page home feed

              When using a facebook page it only shows the page's feed...

              Would be nice to be able to see the facebook pages HOME feed (of all the other pages this page has liked)... until this is possible I will still need to log into facebook to catch this stream. would love to be able to just stay in hootsuite.

                Thank you so much for your continued feedback. While we haven’t yet prioritized this on our product roadmap, we are always interested in ways that we can further enhance the Facebook integration with HootSuite. Stay tuned!

              • Add some user options to Auto Scheduler

                I like the Auto-Scheduler concept – I try to only post to our social network accounts about 3 times a day, however, and my first two “auto-scheduled” posts have been scheduled to go up within 45 minutes of each other.

                Perhaps a customized setting where a user can specify a minimum time period between postings?

                  We’ll be looking at implementing this in the future. Please leave your suggestions for specific “User Options” in the comments below. Thank you!

                • Mute users

                  Have the option to mute users in your timeline.

                    • being able to Group Profiles into groups so that you can select one Clients group and it contains all those profiles.

                      We manage numerous corporate companies Social media, and it is a huge problem that we cannot group certain profiles together for instance create a group for a client and that group contains their profiles and when you post you choose that customer group. this avoids mistakes made . This would be a huge benefit for any Social media Company

                        Thank you so much for your valuable feedback. We are currently evaluating this functionality for future improvements.
                        Have you looked at creating two groups by favoriting a set of social profiles? You can then see only the Favorited profiles by choosing ‘favorites’ at the bottom of the drop down.

                        Thanks for your patience!

                      • Auto fill @reply

                        The auto fill for @replies does not cover all the people I follow… A general user search would also be great to have. AND all of this should be available on the iPhone app.

                          Hi everyone! I wanted to update you on this functionality.

                          The HootSuite dashboard should currently offer any suggestions of usernames you’ve interacted with in the last 30 days. We max out this list at 50/first letter, but you can delete a username from the list by clicking the ‘x’ on the drop down that appears.

                          Recently (July 2013), it was discovered that we had not been saving suggestions for the past 90 days, and you may have seen the impact of this in your browser. It is now resolved, and the expected behaviour (as listed above) is now available.

                          We’ll continue to have this feature ‘under review’ so that we can evaluate the possibility of including all contacts in this auto-fill.

                          Sincerely,

                          Sarah @HootSuite_Help – http://hootsuite.com/help

                        • 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.

                            We need clean the assignments area sometimes. It's important to us remove or delete the resolved assignments. Just add a remove or delete option to the assignmets area.

                                  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.

                                  • add feature to post directly to facebook event

                                    Need feature to post directly onto a facebook event wall and this is done though the owner of the event i.e. the page or user.

                                      We’d love to add this functionality in the future to update event pages. Thanks for your suggestion!

                                    • Build on the great new LinkedIn groups functionality by allowing posts to the group jobs tab

                                      As LinkedIn is heavily used by companies for recruitment it would make sense to add the ability to post jobs to the group jobs tab instead of only allowing posts to the discussions

                                      • Recurring events

                                        Schedule recurring events from the scheduler without having to do a batch. See Sprout Social's service - very robust and clear reporting, simple user interface for scheduling recurring messages. I would rather upgrade to pro on hootsuite and have this ability here instead.

                                          Thanks so much for the feedback! We’ll be evaluating this feature request in the future.

                                        • 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.
