It is difficult to to eye scan all the social network icons inside the platform to which I might want to stream a message. It would be TEN times better to be able to sort them from left to right in the order that I prefer. And it would be even better if I were able to add separators (like Firefox bookmarks) in between the set of group profiles. (icons - upper portion of website)345 votes
Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us!
While we don’t have any plans on our roadmap for changing the order of the social network profiles in the social network picker at this time, it is an idea we are exploring.
In the meantime, to learn more about our current social profile picker (and see some tips and tricks for it) head to our helpdesk article at https://help.hootsuite.com/entries/21774775-Tips-Tricks-The-Social-Profile-Picker.
Thank you for using HootSuite!

Add the Twitter 'interactions' tab to the stream so users no longer miss important interactions with their followers.
We constantly miss RT's notices and other interactions with our users since Hootsuite doesn't allow users to import 'interactions' data. Please add ASAP!340 votes
We’ll review this good idea with our dev team.
I'd like to have an option to change the timestamp format from 12 to 24 hours (streams and schedule), sometimes i still get confused by that as it's not my country default date format. Not much a problem, but it would be nice335 votes
We’re considering further ways to localize HootSuite for multinational use.
It is better to have the images uploaded as it is able to draw attention of potential clients. The image will auto describe our advertising status in multiple biz groups.300 votes
Thank you for your feedback, we’ll be looking in whether this is possible with the Facebook API.
I'd like to be able to surf the follows of other users to make it easy to find new people.
This is a main feature of twitter.com.280 votes
This may be something to consider when we offer additional functionality on the People section of the dashboard.
Either like the @[suggestion] feature, or a new feature that utilizes entered text or frequently used hashtags, the user will see recommended hashtags to add to post to help us maximize our use of the feature.241 votes
On certain mobile apps, there’s an auto-complete feature for hashtags. We’re exploring way to also include this for the web app.
The auto fill for @replies does not cover all the people I follow… A general user search would also be great to have. AND all of this should be available on the iPhone app.229 votes
Hi everyone! I wanted to update you on this functionality.
The HootSuite dashboard should currently offer any suggestions of usernames you’ve interacted with in the last 30 days. We max out this list at 50/first letter, but you can delete a username from the list by clicking the ‘x’ on the drop down that appears.
Recently (July 2013), it was discovered that we had not been saving suggestions for the past 90 days, and you may have seen the impact of this in your browser. It is now resolved, and the expected behaviour (as listed above) is now available.
We’ll continue to have this feature ‘under review’ so that we can evaluate the possibility of including all contacts in this auto-fill.

It would be helpful to click a "reschedule" button for a past scheduled message instead of needing to copy/paste the old text. We have been using HootSuite for one week and already have found ourselves wanting this functionality several times.229 votes
Great idea! We’ll look at adding this functionality in the future. Thanks!
Add a "show conversation" button for DM's to match the way @replies work. It's difficult to track conversations sometimes in the current setup.220 votes
We’d love to add this feature in the future and are looking into the possibility of this. Thanks for all your feedback!
Be able to add a column which would allow chat with our personal facebook contacts209 votes
We aim to extend Facebook functionality in the future.
we've already filtered our facebook friends so that we only see certain streams...if we are to really use hootsuite for facebook we need the same listing ability that we currently have for our twitter client166 votes
We’re happy to let you know that you can filter streams by friends, however lists created in Facebook are not yet able to be pulled in through the API.
To create a filtered Facebook stream within HootSuite please refer to the following Help Desk article:
Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please let me know!
Twitter has a stream API which allows a live view of the users twitter stream. Documentation is here http://dev.twitter.com/pages/streaming_api. TweetDeck (and ChromeDeck), and Seesmic both support it, and it's a great feature, would be awesome to have it in hootsuite too.160 votes
This is Twitter functionality we hope to add in the upcoming future.
I would like my pictures to post to FB groups, and not just my personal wall, and of course have the picture be embedded...not a link to a picture.160 votes
We’ll look at further ways to include photos with more Facebook functionality.
That makes easier recognize each social network messages152 votes
We hope to add a more granular way to identify which message will be sent to which social network profile.
Can't believe that with the inevitable phone upload not being properly in portrait or landscape that Hootsuite doesn't give us any way to rotate. Seriously??146 votes
We will continue to look into ways that Owly images can be better manipulated after an upload (such as rotating).
However, for users that are having trouble with pictures uploading with the wrong rotation, we do have a suggestion. Many users have found that toggling the orientation lock on their mobile device, specifically iOS, has resolved this issue. To do so on iOS, double tap the home button, swipe once left and press the orientation button.
If this doesn’t resolve the issue for you, don’t worry! We’ll still keep this feedback item under review.

Your tweet scheduling is pretty good, but I'd love the ability to be able to schedule tweets by the minute. Sometimes I schedule daily recaps that post one after another for 5 minutes in a row. Currently I have to use CoTweet to handle that.143 votes
Great idea! We’ll see if this is possible in the future.
It would be awesome if there was the capability to customize the colors/themes of HootSuite Desktop as with other Twitter clients. Even if the selection was limited to just several choices.140 votes
If you could create a desktop client for HootSuite (a native one), it would be a real boost to your excellent service.
It could be written in something like Qt, so it would become cross platform and also very fast.139 votes
While we have no plans for a traditional desktop app, we’ll examine the use case scenario for one.
LinkedIn now has University Pages and as an Admin of one I would like to be able to post directly to that page just like LinkedIn Company and Group pages.
Make the contacts sortable (name, klout, etc.); show aggregate data for all contacts (total 2nd order followers, avg klout, etc)132 votes
We plan further updates to the Contacts section of the dashboard. This is a feature we may consider.
