      • Allow scheduling of RSS feed updates

        Allow scheduling of RSS feed updates. For instance to look for an update at 9:30am, 12:30am, and 4:00pm. Market open, midday, and close. :)

          While we don’t check RSS feeds for specific times, you can choose which time interval to check for new updates.

          We may consider specific times in the future.

          Keep in mind that current RSS technology does not allow for precise updates on the hour. However, doing a general check usually allows us to retrieve the latest post within minutes.

        • Allow customizable embeddable column width

          Having a minimum width of 300 px makes it impossible to use as a widget on blogs. Allow us to customize the width so it can be used in a variety of ways.

          • Schedule Facebook post for scheduled, but yet unpublished blog post

            It's great that we can schedule facebook posts with the image, but the blog post has to be live to do this. I would love the ability to enter my blog admin credentials so when I schedule a week's worth of blog posts to auto post in the future I can also pre-schedule the facbook posts before the blog post has gone live. We need a way for hootsuite to get into the blog and pull the info. Or whichever way is best; the bottom line is: it doesn't do any good to schedule a facebook post for a blog…

            • Distinguish title and body for Blogs

              When posting to Wordpress there is no way to set the title of the post. I suggest using the first line for the title and the rest for the body.

              • Press ESCAPE key to clear and close the entry box when you dont want to sub

                Like Gtalk, Msn, OCS, or other instant messenger, when you press the ESCape key, it closes the current window. For the browser hootsuite I would like to have a similiar aproach. Sometimes im writting a tweet, suddenly I give up that idea and dont want to submit it. I'd like to, when i press the ESCape key, have the box that i was typing getting cleared and closed.

                • fix IFTTT integration

                  The IFTTT integration has been down since Hootsuite implemented new security. Please fix it! It is a lifeline for automating social media.

                    Hello! Thanks for reaching out to us!

                    Thank you for your interest in resume the HootSuite integration with IFTTT! While this is not on our roadmap at this time, we hope to resume integration in the future.

                  • configure the Auto-Schedule function to not delay RTs and replies

                    Instead of kicking the toggle back and forth between Auto-Schedule and not, I would like to see a way that RTs or replies are not auto-scheduled and it is recognized that, that information should be sent in real time.

                      This is an excellent feature suggestion, and we’ll continue to monitor how many users would like to implement this feature.

                    • facebook lists

                      facebook users already create lists to keep them updated on profiles of their choosing. twitter lists like this are already integrated into hootsuite. I'm proposing the same for facebook. thanks for your consideration.

                      • Hide images attached to scheduled updates

                        Currently, when scheduling an update with image attached to it, the image will be visible in ow.ly's gallery before the update is posted to the networks. I suggest hiding all images attached to scheduled updates, or uploading them to a temporary place until it's time to post them, then move them over to ow.ly

                          This would be a great feature for users uploading photos as part of their scheduled content. We’ll look at the feasibility and functionality of something like this in the future. Thank you!

                          • add global filters for keyword, application, or user

                            It would be wonderful if, as is with some other clients, I could filter out tweets from specific users, filter out mentions of specific users or applications (like paper.li, for example) or by keyword.

                              HootSuite now has filters based on keyword and Klout score. This feature is currently exclusive to users on a Pro plan.

                              Filters based on application and user is also something worth considering.

                              Hello,

                              I work for a large travel agency and my company has been using enterprise version of your software for quite some time. In addition, we have also been using CoTweet to fill in some gaps that we encountered with HootSuite, both browser and mobile versions. However, and due to my almost personal connection to HootSuite as I also use it for my private account, I wanted to share with you, in this private manner some of the things that would greatly rise value of HootSuite in the eyes of my company's leads, and I will be the first one…

                                  • Minimum time to set posts apart in hootlet

                                    The new autoschedule option for hootlet is great... but What if I wanted to use it to schedule posts for a network for the next week...
                                    There should be an option IMO to limit how close together posts could be posted on each network via auto schedule, (say 12 hours apart for example) then when im looking for "next weeks posts", I can autoschedule and they will fill up the week.

                                    • Please make the bulk uploading system for uploading to multiple accounts with different messages.

                                      The current system allows bulk uploading to multiple accounts. However, you have to upload the same message to each account. There should be a field "ACCOUNT" in the CSV that indicates which handle the message should be uploaded to.
                                      This would greatly ease the burden on managing multiple accounts. The more fields in the bulk upload, the better as far as I am concerned, but indicating the specific account is the most important by far.

                                        This would be an interesting idea to include in bulk uploading. We’ll look at adding this feature in future releases. Thank you!

                                        I'd rather use a native app on my mac than a mac created from the web app by fluid.

                                        • allow scheduled tweets to be paused in bulk

                                          Sometimes we get a call from a client to pause all activity for a period of hours/days because of some approval delay or unrelated crisis. At the moment we go into the Monthly view and drag all the scheduled stuff out an extra period of time. It would be great just to have a pause button that pauses all scheduled comms, ideally at a Team level (because a team usually works on content across one Twitter and one FB account)
