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.150 votes
I was surprised this morning to see I had been automatically moved to the new streams - the GUI is horrible, especially for twitter. It's so segmented - twitter is supposed to be a flowing stream, not segments. I REALLY preferred the old streams. Please allow me to switch it back.148 votes
We hear you loud and clear!
We’ve been listening to all of your ideas and feedback and will be sharing updates when we have them.
Update The blue dot is back! All unread tweets (upon stream refresh) will now show a dot next to the timestamp. Thanks for letting us know this important to you.
Our Support Team would like to investigate any performance or slowness issues further. Please send @Hootsuite_Help a tweet and we can help!

Make the contacts sortable (name, klout, etc.); show aggregate data for all contacts (total 2nd order followers, avg klout, etc)137 votes
We plan further updates to the Contacts section of the dashboard. This is a feature we may consider.
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.133 votes
It would be awesome to see Instagram able to post automatically, instead of having to be redirected to the app at time of post.
Can we have an option to post automatically to Instagram? Instead of being redirected to the app?131 votes
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.129 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.

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!
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.118 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 share tabs between teams (including subsequent columns). You should also be able to assign a column to a tab.117 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.113 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
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.112 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!
Consider adding the tsu.co network109 votes
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.101 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.100 votes
We’ll explore further options with Ow.ly’s API for third party developers who want to build with it.
It would be cool to integrate a video upload feature to share videos...99 votes
We hope to add video uploads in the future.
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.98 votes
This is a great idea that would further improve usability.
Please get rid of the "you've been inactive for over an hour" dialog. Who cares if I have! I don't tweet every minute of every hour 24 hours a day. I often just glance at Hootsuite on my laptop once in a while while I work to see if anything worthwhile has come up. I don't reply or post at least once an hour and shouldn't be reminded of it. This dialog is completely useless and extremely annoying!96 votes
This dialogue box currently exists to preserve bandwidth. We’ll consider other alternatives for this function.
With the Twitter API change on or about Apr 1 2013, twitter native retweets now can show up in lists. I'd like to turn them off and as per the dev documentation of a lists query for twitter, you can turn on or off native retweets with a simple flag (ow.ly/jGMvt). I'd tie this flag to a radio button for display native retweets yes/no when people add columns displaying a list.94 votes
Thanks for your feedback with this recent change. We’ll look at the possibility of adding this feature into user options in the future.
