add keyboard shortcuts to every action in every version of HootSuite, especially the Web
It would also be nice to be able to edit them in case there's a conflict and to be able to switch them off (this should apply to every enhancement). At the least give me post, schedule, choose network and navigate the current column. Mousing just isn't an efficient mechanism when you mostly type or read.
Hi HootSuite people! I just want to suggest you to add a keyboard shortcut for the ease of access to the features. For example Click N for new post, R- to reply a Tweet. T to re-tweet a Tweet, F- for faving a Tweet & so on. Another thing is for you to put the link shortening box on the same place as the status box! It really made me confused when I copied a link and paste it on the Status box it didn't shortened automatically! I hope you'll take considerations on my suggestions! Thanks a lot! ASAP!
It would be great if Hootsuite adds keyboard shortcuts to perform common actions like writing a new twitt (post, message…) or choosing an account to publish into. It would accelerate the process of posting our new ideas using Hootsuite
For posting as well as retweeting, DMing.
Since this feature request was created, we’ve added some keyboard shortcuts, such as “Shift + Enter” to send.
We continue to consider more ways to enhance HootSuite with keyboard shortcuts.

OHHHHHHHH so TAB goes to compose! And here I was trying N for "new tweet" and C for "compose" and nothing happened... =p can we improve this request to "add ~keyboard shortcuts~ item to help menu"?
While I would like to post with Hootsuite, I return to Tweetdeck to read them. It has shortcuts for selecting and scrolling tabs and can clear tabs once they are read. It would be great if Hootsuite could adopt something like that so it is the best Twitter reader as well as sender.
We can use Gmail without a mouse. We can use Windows without a mouse. Someone with a masochistic bent can even use Mac OSX without a mouse.
If Google, Microsoft, and Apple can all figure it out, I believe in the team at Hootsuite.
Bring us a mouseless interface, please, for the people who don't (or can't) use mice. We're not strange. Some of us were born that way.

Tab and Shift/Enter worked for me, insert image/video and all that fun stuff would be SWEET!!!
Well tab starts a message for me
Have a shortcut to send, but not to compose a tweet. Just wish keyboard shortcuts weren't an after thought. There are many of use out there that prefer to navigate and function through keyboard input, without the need for the mouse. Especially with my RSI - I prefer to stick to the keyboard as much as possible.
need shortcuts in navigating through tabs.
need shortcuts for going between Streams & Publisher
is there a list of the available shortcuts anywhere?
Would love a keyboard shortcut to refresh my feeds (as I typically have it on manual refresh).
I'd like shortcut functions: for example 1,2,3...=choose stream, n=choose next tweet, a=reply, A=reply to All, r=RT, +=display conversation, *=add star, u=update stream

How about a shortcut to shorten the URL, like Socialite does?
@Dave, Thank you!

We need shortcuts for navigating the entire suite: switching to new tweet box, scrolling through tweets, replying, DMing, switching columns, switching tabs.
