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".

  1. Add google+ for mobile app

    If Google + is the next massive thing why can we not add it to our networks on the mobile app. Gazillions of us update on the go!!

    • Upload your own thumbnail image for Facebook Links if the link images are broken

      Sometimes you try to share a link in your Facebook Page and the thumbnail Hootsuite will get you from the link is not working with you.

      So you upload your own image to use it as a thumbnail for that link.

      • Allow us to leave "favorites" as primary tweet selection

        I'm confused about why it is that you have the "favorites" selection, but I have to select "favorites" every single time I go to tweet. What's the point? I thought Hootsuite was supposed to make Twitter faster. 900 clicks doesn't do that.

          We’ll examine the use case scenario for adding the Favorite button to the main button selection instead of the drop down menu.

          • 1 Pond versus Various Streams

            Instead of just having different tabs for each linked network and then having a stream for the different activity in it--PERHAPS a feature where users of HootSuite could pool all the feed streams into one overall pond would be useful. The source of the individual contacts could just put in parentheses/brackets/braces or maybe even color coded. I'd still keep the broken-down version available, but just have pooling be an option our upper right-hand owl offers.

            Side note: The current color schemes are nice, but being able to change them to our own liking instead of just the Magnum, Blue Steel,…

            • Post photos / pictures rather than links when using mobile app

              I use this app on the go everyday but it's getting on my nerves that I have to go to desktop version to schedule pictures. I need images to show on Facebook and Google+ when I use the mobile app on my iPhone and iPad, not a link. Thank you!

                  Hi there!

                • 5000 Characters are now allowed on Facebook Wall Posts. Update Hootsuite to Allow the Same

                  Facebook now allows 5k characters in a wall post. Hootsuite still only allows 420 characters to be published to your wall on Facebook, which was the old limit. Update Hootsuite please so we can publish 5k characters! Thanks! :)

                  • Show mention/DM status ( replied, unread, assigned ... )

                    Some emails clients like thunderbird add an small icon when an email has been replied or forwarded. To keep tracking of tweets, mentions, DMs or Facebook comments it would be nice to have this kind of icons in each tweet. In this way, we can see if a mention or DM to us has been answered to avoid forgeting to do it.

                    • I want to rename a stream

                      Hi,
                      I have set up a few geocode search streams.
                      My problem is that they appear as:
                      Human rights geocode:51.4688672,-0.2548867,35km
                      Human rights geocode:52.50,13.42,35km
                      Human rights geocode:27.42,89.68,300km

                      I struggle to identify which one is UK, Germany, or Bhutan.

                      It would be very useful to have an option to rename stream.

                        Great idea! Thanks for sending this is. We’ll look at implementing this in the future.

                      • Allow private twitter accounts to accept new followers. I have not found an app that does this.

                        I have a private twitter account. I am currently unable to approve/accept new follower requests unless I log on to my computer and accept by going online. I've tried doing this on my smart phone but I have not yet found an app that does this. If I use my Internet browser on my smart phone I CANNOT do it either. Twitter in the mobile browser doesn't have this option either.

                          Great idea! We’ll look at adding this functionality in the future.

                        • enable multiple direct message delete; ie "delete selected messages" feature.

                          Cleaning out the direct message inbox either with Twitter or though clients like HootSuite is a nightmare having to do it one message at a time. The ability to select multiple messages (even a "select all" capability) then delete those selected would be a huge plus.

                              I like the way that Seesmic Desktop has different color columns for replies and different colors for direct messages. It helps assimilate information much faster! I think that color coding the columns will help a lot!

                              • Choosing week's first day

                                Most countries start their week on Monday, while others do it on Sunday. Being able to choose whether the week starts on Sunday or on Monday would make it easier for people scheduling their tasks on the calendar.

                                • Make the bulk upload more user friendly. Perhaps .txt format. The CSV formatting is too finnicky.

                                  ensuring the formatting is exact on the .csv format is glitchy and time consuming. Would also
                                  be better if more than 50 could be done at a time.

                                  • Need support for RELATIVE timestamps

                                    HootSuite Web needs to support RELATIVE timestamps instead of actual times only. (i.e. it should say that something happened "1 minute ago" not "at 4:33pm").

                                    This is the default for both Twitter and Facebook natively, so it seems odd that HootSuite doesn't support it.

                                    On a side note, the HootSuite iPhone app already DOES support this -- so, clearly, the data is readily available. We just need an option for it in the web interface.

                                    Thank you!

                                    - John...

                                      • Extend stats CSV export to include more details

                                        The new CSV export of ow.ly stats is great, but please include the clicked URL and time of click so that I can cross-analyze this with the rest of my data (Google Analytics, marketing campains, support tickets) in @gooddata
