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.145 votes
While we have no plans for a traditional desktop app, we’ll examine the use case scenario for one.
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.144 votes
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!
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.118 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.118 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.

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
It's great to be able to manage Instagram accounts via Hootsuite now! Posting videos to Instagram via Hootsuite would make it that much better.100 votes
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.
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.100 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!
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!

allow users to share tabs between teams (including subsequent columns). You should also be able to assign a column to a tab.98 votes
Consider adding the tsu.co network96 votes
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.
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.92 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.
It would also be nice to be able to edit them in case there's a conflict and to be able to switch them off (this should apply to every enhancement). At the least give me post, schedule, choose network and navigate the current column. Mousing just isn't an efficient mechanism when you mostly type or read.89 votes
Since this feature request was created, we’ve added some keyboard shortcuts, such as “Shift + Enter” to send.
We continue to consider more ways to enhance HootSuite with keyboard shortcuts.
