  1. More Tabs

    Due to our agency running managing multiple social media accounts, we are in need of more tabs! The limit of 20 is too low for an agency - especially as we are growing accounts!

      The current limit tabs is due to performance considerations for web browsers. However, as technology evolves, this may be something we reformat in the future.

    • Implement PIWIK in Hootsuite!

      Google Analytics is not suiteable for german data law rights. Soit would be nice if you implemented Piwik because it is more and more popular.

      • add the possibility to remove the hashtag "#" when posting differently than twitter ?

        It's good to have the "#" symbol for twitter.
        Then, when your post is going to facebook or linkedin, you have the "#" symbol before some words.
        But for people who don't know the meaning of the "#", it seems strange .. so it maybe a good idea to have an option to remove the "#" when posting to Facebook or Linkedin (elsewhere thant twitter).
        Thank you.

            • Offer the option to hide retweets in a stream

              One of my columns is a twitter list. It's a very focused list, but lately it's getting crowded by retweets. I would like to keep this stream focused to just the people in the list. I do not want to see the retweets in this stream.

              Please offer an option where we can hide retweets in a stream.

                This is an interesting idea! We’ll look at how we can add this feature to streams in the future. Thanks for your feedback!

                • 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

                    • Add an option to disable shift+enter to publish

                      I see you've declined this idea in the past but hear me out:
                      Shift+Enter to auto publish is a *shortcut*, not a necessary feature. Most people don't even know it exists until they accidentally press it and blast out a half-finished message to thousands of people.

                      If Ctrl+Z is the shortcut for Undo in almost every program but you make it the shortcut to auto-delete the file in your program you're going to cause problems.

                      Twice now I've accidentally published unfinished posts and it's just silly that you won't even add an *option* to disable it for people who will…

Thanks!

                            • Give Ow.ly custom addresses (like bit.ly & tinyurl allow) Example:

                              With bit.ly & tinyurl you can create your own custom ending. I would LOVE that with ow.ly.

                              Examples:

                              • 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.

                                • Lower the price for new analytics. $50/ per report is very high

                                  The reports look great, but at 10x the monthly cost of a pro membership, they seem very overpriced, considering most of the data you can get for free from their respective networks.

                                      Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll look at the feasibility of doing this in the future. An opt-in setting would be necessary.

                                    • Add an Auto-shrink (Auto-shorten) button users can click to replace URL's with short URL's

                                      HootSuite should have a "shrink" button that automatically replaces any URL's in a post with a short URL. I hate having to cut URL's out of the post, shrink them, and move them back to the proper place in the post (instead of at the end). Follow Tweetdeck's example and make HootSuite more usable for your customers.

                                      • Hide Games from Facebook Updates

                                        When FB friends post updates with games they are playing (like Farmville) I like to hid them. They don't show up on FB after I hide them, but they keep showing up in Hootsuite. Hidden people are removed from Hootsuite, but not hidden games

                                        • include Facebook "likes" and "comments" in stats, just like bit.ly

                                          In bit.ly it shows the total number of Facebook "likes" and "comments" for a shortened link. It would be really helpful to have that same functionality in stats for Hootsuite.
