  1. Printable Streams

    Sometimes ya gotta print! It'd be nice to be able to print a stream. Also the option to select how many tweets would be in that printed stream. It's particularly useful when pitching twitter to non-social media people.

    • offer draft tweets as a column

      I would like a column called "draft tweets" so that I can view all the draft tweets associated with a particular account rather than having to go to the message composition window and use the dropdown. This is especially helpful when using an If This Then That recipe to create draft messages. I would like to be able to rocket through all those drafts, scheduling them from within a drafts column. Thanks!

        Really cool idea! We’ll look at adding this in the future!

      • add a feature to highlight a facebook post when scheduling

        photos show up nice and large when you "highlight" them. It would be nice to be able to set that when scheduling.

          This is a great idea! We’ll look at the possibility with implementing this in the future under Facebook’s API.

        • Be able to delete sent messages from the DM Outbox (not just the Inbox)

          Add an option to delete previously sent DMs from your outbox. This already works for the DM inbox, so why not for the outbox too?

          • Change Pricing Structure of Analytics Points

            increase base points for analytics report for pro users. 50 isn't enough, 100'd be great! Additionally, make it cheaper to purchase extra points.

            • Put social network icons on tabs.

              As far as i see you can have one social network activity on each tab, if so for quicker perception (= easy navigation) between tabs putting social networks' icons before tab names would be nice.

                Tabs are not currently exclusive to social networks. In fact, you can put multiple social network streams in one tab.

                However, we may consider ways for users to “tag” their tabs with a social network if it’s devoted only to one of them.

              • Ow.ly photos need to show inline image previews when browsing timeline

                Twitter recently added a new feature where people can see a full inline image preview of photos if you attach a photo URL in your tweet. This doesn't work with Hootsuite Ow.ly images and needs to be fixed ASAP.

                • schedule bulk messages by using calender function

                  I would like to be able to use the calender scheduler to schedule smaller bulk posts by just clicking on what days it should be posted.

                  • Allow Klout filtering to stay instead of disappearing each time I click onto another stream's tab

                    Klout filtering disappears with each click onto another stream. Keep it there!

                        • Allow Facebook groups to blacklist themselves from Hootsuite posts. My group is inundated with hootsuite spam; we have to ban those members.

                          I am an admin for a Facebook group that clearly states that no self-promotion is allowed on the forum. However, people who use HootSuite, who add their FB group, are spamming our wall every day. I get between 4-10 posts a day that I have to clean up. The only option at present is banning these members, because they don't get our comments (or ignore them) to remove the ad.

                          It would be much more simple if we could give you our group URL and blacklist ourselves in some way. I realize you are limited in functionality because of FB…

                                • Remove hashtags from Facebook posts

                                  I think Hootsuite should be able to automatically (or have the option to) remove hashtags from Facebook posts because they're unnecessary. At the moment I have to post to Twitter and Google+ at the same time, then post to Facebook separately removing the hashtags.

                                    • Ability to schedule foursquare check-ins

                                      My company has a foursquare brand page that we use to publish the location of events and connect with our followers. We also use HootSuite for most our social media interaction.

                                      Being able to schedule our brand's foursquare check-ins would be awesome. TweetDeck currently has this option, but I'd like to see if become part of HootSuite.

                                        • Split long tweets into multiple tweets automatically

                                          While typing my thoughts and if some of the thoughts extend, I'd like to have hootsuite just cut it out into a new tweet rather than limit the tweet.... me tweeting... and than having to type the later half on a new tweet. Why can't it just happen as I write?
