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.
Just like getting a notification when your user name is in a tweet, we could set one for a particular hashtag.94 votes
We’re currently reviewing possible ways to set up notifications and alerts.
If you post a YouTube link manually it embeds on your Facebook page.
Currently, Hootsuite creates a thumbnail image and puts up a text link to a YouTube video instead of embedding it straight on Facebook.
This is way less attractive when a user is browsing their feed, so I want to suggest embedding for YouTube (and Soundcloud) implemented when posting links from Hootsuite.93 votes
We’ll look into ways of embedding YouTube videos into posts sent to Facebook.
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.
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!93 votes
We’re considering further ways to extend Facebook functionality with HootSuite.
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.92 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.
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.92 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.
Use Case: an organization might want to have auto-updates during a certain time period (overnight or weekends for example) but wanted to manually update it during business hours.91 votes
No doubt, this is an interesting idea, and something we may offer someday to premium accounts.
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.91 votes
We continue to consider new ways to extend Facebook functionality with HootSuite.
add click tracking for photos uploaded through hootsuite. the ow.ly link should provide click stats.88 votes
We’re always looking for ways to improve analytics, especially for images. We’ll look at implementing this in the future.
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, the shortest HootSuite update interval is 2 minutes (unless you pull a manual update). TweetDeck has implemented realtime Twitter updating. HootSuite should do the same.87 votes
We are currently considering ways to stream social network data.
Simple enough, allow standard, native Retweets to be autoscheduled instead of having to 'edit' and break the RT model.86 votesSarah responded
Interesting idea! Currently, there is no scheduling available for native retweets. Would you see all types of scheduling being added, or just Autoscheduling?
We’d like to add more features to Ow.ly.
You - Hootsuite - are enticing users to use the new style Hootsuite without making it clear that once they switch there's no turning back. I thought, ok, I'll give it try. Within seconds it was obvious to me that it made the page far too busy and harsh on the eye. I wanted to revert back immediately but I discovered that I could not. Think you've been deceitful and underhand in that way that you've promoted the 'new style'. And turns what was perfectly simple, into a horrendously busy page, with images everywhere, repeated in many cases because of retweets. Freakin' awful and for that reason, I am looking for an alternative. Hell, I'll even try Tweetdeck to avoid the visual nightmare that you've visited upon me.

Due to our agency running managing multiple social media accounts, we are in need of more tabs! The limit of 20 is too low for an agency - especially as we are growing accounts!85 votes
The current limit tabs is due to performance considerations for web browsers. However, as technology evolves, this may be something we reformat in the future.
Now that Facebook is retiring interest lists (sigh..), could you look into bundling feeds from several Facebook pages into one stream? That would in effect revive interest lists. I have a number of news media clients using Hootsuite dashboards who are very eager to implement this.85 votes
Have the option to mute tweets with hashtags in your timeline and lists.83 votes
We see how this feature could be useful.
I think for many Users it could be very important to have a language filter.80 votes
Hootsuite offers an awesome way to track ow.ly shortened URLs across accounts by giving each account it's own unique click stats. I'm more interested in using a single URL across multiple accounts. (I think this is how it used to work.)80 votes
We’ll consider further ways to make Ow.ly URLs more flexible for users’ needs.
