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".
(thinking…)

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. create a hashtag recommendation tool based on entered text or often used hastags

    Either like the @[suggestion] feature, or a new feature that utilizes entered text or frequently used hashtags, the user will see recommended hashtags to add to post to help us maximize our use of the feature.

      On certain mobile apps, there’s an auto-complete feature for hashtags. We’re exploring way to also include this for the web app.

    • Caption your tutorial for deaf and hard-of-hearing people.

      I tried to understand your tutorial but I'm deaf and couldn't. Please caption it. Try SpeechText Access, a Disability-Owned Business Enterprise.

        Hi there!
        My apologies for the frustration. We are working towards closed captioning on all tutorials, starting with the HootSuite University series.
        Stay tuned!

      • add keyboard shortcuts to every action in every version of HootSuite, especially the Web

        It would also be nice to be able to edit them in case there's a conflict and to be able to switch them off (this should apply to every enhancement). At the least give me post, schedule, choose network and navigate the current column. Mousing just isn't an efficient mechanism when you mostly type or read.

          Since this feature request was created, we’ve added some keyboard shortcuts, such as “Shift + Enter” to send.

          We continue to consider more ways to enhance HootSuite with keyboard shortcuts.

        • Add "near:" search operator

          Twitter now supports the search operator "near:", followed by the name of a place, e.g. near:"Brisbane, Australia". There are other sites now offering this functionality under a "local search" banner (see monitter) and that's a super useful targeting tool for small business.

          Please add support for this operator and allow geo search.

          Thank you,
          Gal

            Currently, you can do geocode specific searches. For example: “geocode:49.2846165,-123.0954835,25km”

            We do not yet offer functionality for the “near:” operator. However, this is on our road map.

          • Removal of "via" from a Tweet detail

            Hi can I suggest that the name of the app used in Tweeting be removed from the Tweet details? Only the time and the date will be left! It;ll help make Twitter more comfortable place to post with! It's so discriminating seeing that my friend uses "Twitter for iPhone" to Tweet me while I'm using "Mobile Web" to reply to him/her. I'm doing this suggestion to make HootSuite not just comfortable with my part but also to make it more consistent to use compare to other apps!
            Thanks! I hope you'll put a consideration on my idea!

            Sincerely,
            Francis Park

              Hi there!

              This only shows in Twitter clients at this time, Twitter natively has removed it. In a future API change, this will also be removed from Twitter apps. We’ll update this thread when this change occurs. Thanks for your feedback!

            • Improve Timezone Selection

              You should remove the TimeZone selector, or make it easier to use (at least guess my time zone based on where I'm coming from). I don't even seem my time zone in the list (UTC-07:00) Mountain Time (US & Canada)!

                  • Allow users to override the dashboard browser auto-detect

                    Most web sites which auto-detect the device/browser in use allow the user to choose to use the full web site or a mobile/limited site. HootSuite does not offer such an option for Android Honeycomb/tablet (Xoom) users, and forces them to download and use the sub-par HootSuite Android app. The same restriction is not made on an iPad / iOS, where Safari can be used for the HS Dashboard.

                    • allow an on/off feature for the (currently forced) behavior of refresh when you post a tweet.

                      Recently you implemented a 'feature' that causes the screen to be refreshed when you post a tweet. When working backwards over past tweets or updates it is annoying to have the display refresh, and cause you to loose your place, just because you've posted an update.. Refresh is configurable and one option is 'manual only'. Where this is true, why can this not also be true (or remain true - as it used to be this way) when posting updates?
