There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Visually indicate if already following the tweeter or not

    When monitor various hashtags and searches I want to know if I am already following the person giving the tweet.

    One way of doing this might be to show a tiny avatar of the account that is doing the following in the dead space below the tweeter's avatar.

        • On the Download Sample CSV link, add another link for Windows Excel users to http://www.HootSuiteBulkUpload.com

          Many new users have trouble with the Bulk Schedule feature of HootSuite so a fellow user created a Windows Excel template available for free at http://www.HootSuiteBulkUpload.com. The template provides intuitive feedback of any problems with the dates, tweets or URLs, produces error-free Bulk Schedule CSV files and encodes UTF-8.

            • add goals to the scheduler/calendar or under a profile

              I set goals for my team to achieve, typically on a daily basis (ex: 9 tweets, 2 FB posts, 1 G+ post, 3 pins, Cover Photo changed weekly, FS Deal changed monthly, etc) and I'd love the ability to have those showing in HootSuite so they can see their progress and be reminded what we are working towards. Even if it's an overarching goal for the whole brand, then that would be great too.

                • Allow to choose thumbnail image when hooting to G+ pages (it worked before!)

                  Allow to choose from different thumbnail images when hooting to G+ pages. This feature worked before but has stopped. You can still do the same thing when posting directly in G+ or via a Sharethis button. It is really boring if you cannot post with a nice image to G+ pages!

                    Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us!

                    To confirm, due to a restriction in the G+ API, thumbnails currently cannot selected when posting to G+ from HootSuite.

                    We hope to re-examine this functionality again in the future should the restriction be removed.

                    Thank you,
                    Travis | Customer Support – Technical Lead | @HootSuite_Help

                  • I'd like to be able to see the followers of my followers please

                    • fibonacci button (or hidden command (like fib))

                      hi.

                      Do you know "termtter"?
                      http://github.com/jugyo/termtter

                      It's twitter client for terminal.

                      And, it has 'fib' command default, it can use to post some fibonacci numbers.
                      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fibonacci_number

                      That brings some comfort to twitter (and some social networks)

                      Example:
                      fib -> (Show dialog and ask coefficient) 10 -> Hootsuite posts "fib(10) = 55" to twitter, etc.

                      • see which followers are not in a list already

                        Sometimes, I follow people and forget to put them in a list. I wish I could see which lists people are in (NOT "who in is which list, which I can do currently) from the contacts tab.

                        • add UTM tagging options for the RSS auto-posts

                          The RSS auto-post function is great, but to be able to track campaigns it would be handy to have the same UTM tagging options that are available in the advanced link options.

                          • Allow HootSuite Pro users to co-manage accounts with other HootSuite Pro users

                            I had to switch tools because HootSuite Pro doesn't allow you to import accounts that other HootSuite users are managing; this limits my ability to co-manage with my clients. Had to move to another social media tool.

                            I'd be happy to pay a little extra for the ability to co-manage, although not as much as Enterprise. There may be room for another service tier here. I'm happily paying $40/month for Sprout.

                            • The Quick Search box should be movable

                              It is not possible to drag the Quick Search box around; its position is fixed, and so it hides whatever is behind it. It should be made to be movable.

                                            This would be a great addition to the dashboard. We’ll look at the feasibility of this with the current restrictions of the Facebook API. Thank you!
