I used to use yfrog for free, and "upgraded" to Hootsuite's paid service. I'm shocked that my tweet-text isn't showing up under the images I'm posting on ow.ly. This is a deal-breaker unless it gets fixed...74 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll definitely look at expanding what ow.ly can offer and adding this to the service in the future.
Echofon does this and will remain my client until you can add this functionality. I'd rather use Hootsuite instead so I hope you will add this ability.
Again, maintain a sync of read tweets between devices AND set the window to show your oldest "new" tweet first so you can scroll up to the latest.73 votes
In the future, we hope to enable syncing across devices.
This is the one feature that I really miss from CoTweet. Basically, team members get to select whether they are "on duty" for a particular account, and if so get emails every time there is a new mention or dm. This allows us to be responsive without having to stay logged into the web app all day.72 votes
We continue to consider more features for team collaboration.
Facebook now allow you to create Polls - It would be great if we could use this feature from Hootsuite70 votes
We hope to extend Facebook functionality in the upcoming future.
I would love to be able to monitor Foursquare activity at the venues that I manage. Tracking check-ins and comments/shout-outs would be really helpful.70 votes
We continue to consider further ways to extend Foursquare’s functionality.
Right now, the shortest HootSuite update interval is 2 minutes (unless you pull a manual update). TweetDeck has implemented realtime Twitter updating. HootSuite should do the same.70 votes
We are currently considering ways to stream social network data.
There are many non-english tweets in some of my streams. I would like them to be automatically translated to English. Should be a preference that says what language you want them to be translated to.68 votes
Added translation to the iPhone app as a starter. You can translate to/from 50+ languages and automatically translate to your default.
Use Case: an organization might want to have auto-updates during a certain time period (overnight or weekends for example) but wanted to manually update it during business hours.65 votes
No doubt, this is an interesting idea, and something we may offer someday to premium accounts.
Just like getting a notification when your user name is in a tweet, we could set one for a particular hashtag.65 votes
We’re currently reviewing possible ways to set up notifications and alerts.
If you post a YouTube link manually it embeds on your Facebook page.
Currently, Hootsuite creates a thumbnail image and puts up a text link to a YouTube video instead of embedding it straight on Facebook.
This is way less attractive when a user is browsing their feed, so I want to suggest embedding for YouTube (and Soundcloud) implemented when posting links from Hootsuite.64 votes
We’ll look into ways of embedding YouTube videos into posts sent to Facebook.
$49.00 is still too much for this service, especially when it won’t even work with the Hootlet bookmark.64 votes
We continue to consider ways to offer value to HootSuite customers.
allow users to share tabs between teams (including subsequent columns). You should also be able to assign a column to a tab.60 votes
Great idea, and one to consider for a future release.
HootSuite only allows users to add text to the beginning of each tweet. HootSuite calls this 'prepending'. It would be helpful for those of us working with RSS to add copy such as hashtags at the end of our tweets.58 votes
Adding options for postpended text is a feature we are considering.
or indeed any custom filter. This could be achieved easily by allowing operators such as '-term' or 'NOT term' to the existing filter system.58 votes
We’ll consider ways of filtering messages based on tools being used to send them.
Please get rid of the "you've been inactive for over an hour" dialog. Who cares if I have! I don't tweet every minute of every hour 24 hours a day. I often just glance at Hootsuite on my laptop once in a while while I work to see if anything worthwhile has come up. I don't reply or post at least once an hour and shouldn't be reminded of it. This dialog is completely useless and extremely annoying!57 votes
This dialogue box currently exists to preserve bandwidth. We’ll consider other alternatives for this function.
When I post a status update from hootsuite to facebook it doesn't include the share link. It only shows if I post directly in FB.57 votes
I think the auto scheduler feature is great. Now I'd like this feature available in bulk scheduled items.57 votes
We’ll look at ways to further consolidate both these wonderful features.
Add TweetMarker to sync Timeline between different Devices and Twitterclients. See www.tweetmarker.net56 votes
We’ll look into what TweetMaker does, and how it can extend HootSuite functionality.
Presently, there is no way to block someone from Dashboard without reporting them as Spam. The only way to non-spam block someone is to do so through Contacts, which means they must be following you or you them, and it is unwieldy if you're blocking many people at once.
I recommend an option in dashboard beside "Report Spammer" which is simply "Block".55 votes
We’ll consider including this as a feature in a future release.
With the Twitter API change on or about Apr 1 2013, twitter native retweets now can show up in lists. I'd like to turn them off and as per the dev documentation of a lists query for twitter, you can turn on or off native retweets with a simple flag (ow.ly/jGMvt). I'd tie this flag to a radio button for display native retweets yes/no when people add columns displaying a list.54 votes
Thanks for your feedback with this recent change. We’ll look at the possibility of adding this feature into user options in the future.
