  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.

    • Expand/Collapse Compose Message Box On-Click

      I often find that the profile picker will appear when I don't want it to. Usually I'll move the mouse up to the compose window and click, then (unintentionally) move the mouse over to the right. When I start typing, the text goes into the profile picker and not the compose box. This is very frustrating.

      The profile picker has a dropdown icon next to it, indicating that it will respond to a click, not a hover. I would recommend that the behavior either be adjusted to respond to click and not hover, or provide a configuration option that lets…

        Hi there! Thank you all for your feedback.

        This is a fantastic suggestion, and our developers are continuing to review this idea for possible implementation to future updates to the Hootsuite web dashboard.

        In the meantime, we’ve recently made some great updates to the compose message box and profile picker. To learn more about these Hootsuite features, please head to https://help.hootsuite.com/entries/21774775-Tips-Tricks-The-Social-Profile-Picker.

      • 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!

        • Alter the ‘assign to’ function so that you can assign a whole conversation, not just a tweet.

          Hi there, we joined hootsuite partly because of the ability to assign from one team member to another (and we're loving it overall by the way).

          However we would really appreciate a function that allows you to assign a conversation, rather than just a tweet.

          We're finding it very difficult for the assignee to followup and provide any detailed response when an issue may arise over a few tweets.

          e.g:
          Customer: There is an issue with my train.
          Us: Could you tell us which one?
          Customer: It was the one leaving this station at 6:30am.

          The problem is at the…

              I update all of my brands Cover Photo at least every week. Being able to schedule this would be very helpful!

              • 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?

                • color code tweets in the stream based on user, hashtag, etc..

                  It would be nice to change the color of certain tweets in the stream. I understand that I can add additional streams, but doing it with background colors allows me to condense data into a smaller amount of space, reducing the time it takes to parse through it.

                      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?

                        • Show mention/DM status ( replied, unread, assigned ... )

                          Some emails clients like thunderbird add an small icon when an email has been replied or forwarded. To keep tracking of tweets, mentions, DMs or Facebook comments it would be nice to have this kind of icons in each tweet. In this way, we can see if a mention or DM to us has been answered to avoid forgeting to do it.

                          • enable multiple direct message delete; ie "delete selected messages" feature.

                            Cleaning out the direct message inbox either with Twitter or though clients like HootSuite is a nightmare having to do it one message at a time. The ability to select multiple messages (even a "select all" capability) then delete those selected would be a huge plus.

                                  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.

                                  • Allow us to leave "favorites" as primary tweet selection

                                    I'm confused about why it is that you have the "favorites" selection, but I have to select "favorites" every single time I go to tweet. What's the point? I thought Hootsuite was supposed to make Twitter faster. 900 clicks doesn't do that.

                                      We’ll examine the use case scenario for adding the Favorite button to the main button selection instead of the drop down menu.

                                    • Add in Country Specific filters for posts

                                      Great to use but all of the post suggestions so far are US based and not really relevant to my UK followers.

                                      It would be great to see country specific filtering where you can add in your country and or regions in the settings section

                                      • 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.

                                          Thanks for submitting this idea. We are always looking for ways to improve cross-network postings.

                                        • Re-enable staying logged in for a week

                                          Recently, you removed the "keep me logged in" tick box in the login screen. Everytime you restart the browser, we are forced to click log in and type username and password. Very annoying.

                                          Before, we only had to do that once a week. Much better.
