We created a video using Windows Movie maker and we are not able to post it to FB134 votes
Video would be a great enhancement.
I think the auto scheduler feature is great. Now I'd like this feature available in bulk scheduled items.132 votes
We’ll look at ways to further consolidate both these wonderful features.
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.
Could it be made possible to access trending topics by location. Currently we only see US topics, and being in England, they don't make much sense!128 votes
Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll look into the possibility of adding the option to change location in the future.
Please add new myspace128 votes
We’ll be looking into the possibility of adding new MySpace in the future. Thanks for the request!
Sometimes you try to share a link in your Facebook Page and the thumbnail Hootsuite will get you from the link is not working with you.
So you upload your own image to use it as a thumbnail for that link.122 votes
We’ll examine if this is possible with Facebook’s API.
who in their right mind omits/removes this feature? I can't find it anywhere no matter the how-to says I can find it in preferences.119 votes
Hello, and thank you all for your comments.
While this feature is not on our roadmap at this time, we don’t want to completely discount the option to change font size within the Hootsuite web dashboard at this time. We may examine this idea for implementation in the future.

This already displays in the pending/scheduled tweets column which is very useful when reviewing what has been loaded up as you know who posted what when working in a team environment. Once they've been sent, however, there is no access to that same information on Hootsuite but I'm not sure why.115 votes
Hi there! Thank you all for your feedback,
While we do not have this feature quite yet, we do understand that it is an important feature in terms of account transparency and accountability in a team environment.
Our developers are continuing to investigate this feature suggestion for future updates to Hootsuite.
As a current work-around, we recommend having your team members enable the auto-initial setting within the Hootsuite web dashboard. For more information on this, please head to https://help.hootsuite.com/entries/21606308-Enabling-Auto-Initial.

Allow users to select when HootSuite captures the post preview. Options would be: (1) when scheduling the post, (2) when posting occurs.
This would allow those of us with a blog to pre-schedule the post on our blog site prior to scheduling the post with HootSuite and not have a "Page Not Found" error.112 votes
As a news organization we'd love to have RSS feeds post automatically, instead of only every hour. This would help significantly with breaking news links.110 votes
A new app has recently been added to the Hootsuite App Directory, RSS Auto Publisher, that publishes feeds up to the minute. You can check it out here: http://ow.ly/z9okY
The new menu bar down the left side is a good idea in theory, but the auto expand on mouse over seems to be distracting when my mouse passes over.98 votes
Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us!
While we do not have any current plans on our roadmap to change the left HootSuite menu bar at this time, we are currently investigating ideas to change UI features for future updates to the HootSuite web dashboard.
Thank you graciously for all of the suggestions, and thank you for using HootSuite!

Ow.ly stats are great, but I'd like to use shortened URLs in other applications (Web pages, Facebook, etc.) and would still like to capture statistics on clickthroughs. Currently using bit.ly for this, but would prefer if I could do it with ow.ly.97 votes
We’ll explore further options with Ow.ly’s API for third party developers who want to build with it.
I'm on a tab, I do a search. Now I want to save that column, but maybe to a different tab. There's no way. I have to close the search, go to the correct tab and redo the search to save it. I should be able to drag & drop to organize columns between tabs.95 votes
This is a great idea that would further improve usability.
One of my columns is a twitter list. It's a very focused list, but lately it's getting crowded by retweets. I would like to keep this stream focused to just the people in the list. I do not want to see the retweets in this stream.
Please offer an option where we can hide retweets in a stream.94 votes
This is an interesting idea! We’ll look at how we can add this feature to streams in the future. Thanks for your feedback!
I would like to see an unread count in the tabs I create.
Here's a screenshot of what I mean: http://img.skitch.com/20100217-d5whaynh6ekaj444es217q55rr.jpg93 votes
Currently, HootSuite only loads one tab at a time in order to preserve bandwidth and API calls.
However, we do see how useful this feature may be, and may consider it for future updates to our API call process.
Just like getting a notification when your user name is in a tweet, we could set one for a particular hashtag.91 votes
We’re currently reviewing possible ways to set up notifications and alerts.
HootSuite allows us to schedule a Facebook wall post to our own wall, but it would be nice to schedule a FB wall post to a friend's wall (for example, allow me to schedule a wall post for a friend's birthday). Thanks!90 votes
We’re considering further ways to extend Facebook functionality with HootSuite.
allow users to share tabs between teams (including subsequent columns). You should also be able to assign a column to a tab.89 votes
Great idea, and one to consider for a future release.
I would like an email alert when a someone posts on a facebook page's wall I am monitoring and also when a @mention is found. Greatly helps in quick feedback and customer relations.88 votes
We appreciate the suggestion for this added functionality of Facebook Alerts to the Web Dashboard!
We will continue to investigate the possibility of adding this feature in a future update.
Thanks for submitting this!

Right now, it is only posting status messages. I would like to see the ability to post full notes, with an image formatted the way FB allows.85 votes
