    What is the point of using Hootsuite if I have to keep logging onto my Facebook to promote the posts everytime they are scheduled..

    • 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.

        • Integrate True (Advanced) Boolean Logic for Searches

          I believe it would be extremely useful to be able to use advanced Boolean logic in search queries. Currently, if I add too many phrases I either get an error or it says "no results" for phrases that individually DO return results.

          For example, I work for a public safety company that monitors incidents around the world. I would be interested in getting results for a query that would optimally look like this: ("New York" OR "New Jersey" OR "Washington DC") AND ("Bomb Threat" OR "Active Shooter" OR "Is Shooting")

          However, with the current limitations of the search system, I'm…

            • Add the Apply parameters button in the Advance section of the Add URL section of the Compose screen to the top of the parameter list as well

              In the compose quick screen, in the Advanced section of the Add URL. Add the Apply Parameters button to the top of the Parameter list as well as the bottom. If you have a decent list of parameters in a preset, it would good to have th apply button at the top so you don't have to scroll down but can just hit apply and move on. Perhaps even an Apply and Shrink (in one button) would be nice as well.

                    I use this app on the go everyday but it's getting on my nerves that I have to go to desktop version to schedule pictures. I need images to show on Facebook and Google+ when I use the mobile app on my iPhone and iPad, not a link. Thank you!

                      • Allow customizable embeddable column width

                        Having a minimum width of 300 px makes it impossible to use as a widget on blogs. Allow us to customize the width so it can be used in a variety of ways.

                        • 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.

                              Facebook now allows 5k characters in a wall post. Hootsuite still only allows 420 characters to be published to your wall on Facebook, which was the old limit. Update Hootsuite please so we can publish 5k characters! Thanks! :)

                                • Allow private twitter accounts to accept new followers. I have not found an app that does this.

                                  I have a private twitter account. I am currently unable to approve/accept new follower requests unless I log on to my computer and accept by going online. I've tried doing this on my smart phone but I have not yet found an app that does this. If I use my Internet browser on my smart phone I CANNOT do it either. Twitter in the mobile browser doesn't have this option either.

                                        • The option to remove Klout scores from your profile

                                          Option to remove Klout scores from your profile. I have removed and revoked all access to klout due to privacy issues so not happy that it is still being displayed. By default your application is breaching my privacy
