      We’ll be looking into the possibility of adding new MySpace in the future. Thanks for the request!

    • allow users to schedule tweets by the minute.

      Your tweet scheduling is pretty good, but I'd love the ability to be able to schedule tweets by the minute. Sometimes I schedule daily recaps that post one after another for 5 minutes in a row. Currently I have to use CoTweet to handle that.

        Great idea! We’ll see if this is possible in the future.

      • Ability to post photos to specific photo albums in Facebook.

        It's great I can attach random pictures, but we already have photo albums we want to add to. Right now I have to visit our pages in Facebook to add pictures to these albums.

        • add functionality to reschedule a previously scheduled message.

          It would be helpful to click a "reschedule" button for a past scheduled message instead of needing to copy/paste the old text. We have been using HootSuite for one week and already have found ourselves wanting this functionality several times.

              Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us!

              Currently the Instagram API that HootSuite uses supports read-only, meaning that within the HootSuite web dashboard, users can read their feeds, but not post images. However, pending updates to the Instagram API, we hope to be able to re-examine this capability in the future.

              To view your Instagram account in HootSuite, check out the Instagram 3rd party app in our app directory at https://hootsuite.com/app-directory.

              Thank you for using HootSuite!

            • 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).

              • allow streams to be moved between tabs

                I'm on a tab, I do a search. Now I want to save that column, but maybe to a different tab. There's no way. I have to close the search, go to the correct tab and redo the search to save it. I should be able to drag & drop to organize columns between tabs.

                • Display the name of team member who posted a tweet in the SENT column.

                  This already displays in the pending/scheduled tweets column which is very useful when reviewing what has been loaded up as you know who posted what when working in a team environment. Once they've been sent, however, there is no access to that same information on Hootsuite but I'm not sure why.

                  • Autoposting from RSS feeds

                    As a news organization we'd love to have RSS feeds post automatically, instead of only every hour. This would help significantly with breaking news links.

                        • 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.

                            HootSuite allows us to schedule a Facebook wall post to our own wall, but it would be nice to schedule a FB wall post to a friend's wall (for example, allow me to schedule a wall post for a friend's birthday). Thanks!

                                    Hi everyone!
                                    Currently all photos from other clients in Tweets will preview when you open the tweet, with the exception of Twitter native pictures. pic.twitter images will need to be opened in a new window. We’ll look at the possibility of supporting these in the future.
                                    Thanks!

                                  • Option to NOT have unique ow.ly URLs for each account I select, but rather the SAME URL for all.

                                    Hootsuite offers an awesome way to track ow.ly shortened URLs across accounts by giving each account it's own unique click stats. I'm more interested in using a single URL across multiple accounts. (I think this is how it used to work.)

                                    • HootSuite Desktop Customization

                                      It would be awesome if there was the capability to customize the colors/themes of HootSuite Desktop as with other Twitter clients. Even if the selection was limited to just several choices.

                                        You can choose between three theme options under Preferences (Classic, Blue Steel and Magnum). We’ll look to add more color customization in the future.
                                        Thanks for your feedback.

                                        • Change/Allow Customization of the Left HootSuite Menu Bar

                                          The new menu bar down the left side is a good idea in theory, but the auto expand on mouse over seems to be distracting when my mouse passes over.

                                            Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us!

                                            While we do not have any current plans on our roadmap to change the left HootSuite menu bar at this time, we are currently investigating ideas to change UI features for future updates to the HootSuite web dashboard.

                                            Thank you graciously for all of the suggestions, and thank you for using HootSuite!
