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.40 votes
We hope to add additional WordPress functionality in the future.
automatically shorten URLs pasted into the Compose Message window if there is enabled option39 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll look at the feasibility of doing this in the future. An opt-in setting would be necessary.
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.39 votes
This is a great feature suggestion that would improve HootSuite’s usability.
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.
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.
Need feature to post directly onto a facebook event wall and this is done though the owner of the event i.e. the page or user.38 votes
We’d love to add this functionality in the future to update event pages. Thanks for your suggestion!
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.38 votes
This is an excellent feature suggestion, and we’ll continue to monitor how many users would like to implement this feature.
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.38 votes
We continue to consider ways to extend Facebook functionality within HootSuite.
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. :)36 votes
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.
Good suggestion. We’ll consider it.
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.35 votes
We hope to extend Facebook functionality in the upcoming future.
We’re exploring further platforms to develop for.
create a "white label" version of Hootsuite so agencies can customize it with their logo and colors and resell it.34 votes
We’ll examine the possibilities for agencies to customize their dashboard.
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.34 votes
We’re always looking at further ways to make autoscheduling easier for our users.
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.34 votes
This would be an interesting idea to include in bulk uploading. We’ll look at adding this feature in future releases. Thank you!
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 post that's already live. I want to be able to schedule a blog post in advance AND schedule the facebook post for that blog post, so both the blog post AND the facebook post for it automatically go up when they should in the future. Now, if I enter the info for a scheduled blog post that isn't live yet, it just gives me the main blog page info, which is useless.

We continue to offer further ways to make HootSuite more user friendly to bloggers.
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.ly34 votes
This would be a great feature for users uploading photos ahead of time. We’ll look at the feasibility and functionality of something like this in the future. Thank you!
Support goo.gl as a URL shorter and tracking option. It also offers statistics and is frequently used by posters.33 votes
We’ll review which additional URL shorteners to add to future releases.
This feature does depend on the API calls available with each social network profile. However, if it is available, we’ll considering adding such a stream to HootSuite.
Hootsuite is working on Opera, but there are some little issues. Please fix these and support Opera Browser...33 votes
Though HootSuite does not currently support the Opera browser, we hope to do so in the future.
I'd rather use a native app on my mac than a mac created from the web app by fluid.32 votes
Great idea. We’ll continue to monitor this suggestion to gauge interest from other HootSuite users.
