I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. 24h clock

    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 nice

    • 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!

      • allow images to appear in Facebook group postings rather than links

        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.

          Thank you for your feedback, we’ll be looking in whether this is possible with the Facebook API.

        • See followers/followed of other people

          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.

            This may be something to consider when we offer additional functionality on the People section of the dashboard.

          • add functionality to reschedule a previously scheduled message.

            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.

            • Multiple photos to a single Facebook post

              Facebook now allows you to post multiple photos to a single post (without using photo albums). It'd be very beneficial if Hootsuite allowed for this as well. I tried upload multiple photos to a single post (using Hootsuite) and only one showed up whereas the other only showed as an ow.ly link. This is useful for showing one product at various angles or in different colors. Thanks.

                Thank you all for your feedback,

                To confirm, this feature to upload multiple photos to a single Facebook post is not currently available through the Facebook API, but we are discussing this feature possibility with Facebook

                Thank you once again

              • create a hashtag recommendation tool based on entered text or often used hastags

                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.

                  On certain mobile apps, there’s an auto-complete feature for hashtags. We’re exploring way to also include this for the web app.

                • Auto fill @reply

                  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.

                    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.

                    Sincerely,

                    Sarah @HootSuite_Help – http://hootsuite.com/help

                  • Threaded DM conversations - a la current @replies

                    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.

                            • Twitter Stream API

                              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.

                                  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??

                                    Hi everyone!
                                    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.
                                    Thanks!

                                    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.

                                      Great idea! We’ll see if this is possible in the future.

                                    • HootSuite Desktop Customization

                                      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.

                                      • Create a desktop client for HootSuite

                                        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.

                                        • Add an option to disable shift+enter to publish

                                          I see you've declined this idea in the past but hear me out:
                                          Shift+Enter to auto publish is a *shortcut*, not a necessary feature. Most people don't even know it exists until they accidentally press it and blast out a half-finished message to thousands of people.

                                          If Ctrl+Z is the shortcut for Undo in almost every program but you make it the shortcut to auto-delete the file in your program you're going to cause problems.

                                          Twice now I've accidentally published unfinished posts and it's just silly that you won't even add an *option* to disable it for people who will…
