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.
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.
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.
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.91 votes
We’ll look into ways of embedding YouTube videos into posts sent to Facebook.
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.
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, 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.88 votes
We continue to consider new ways to extend Facebook functionality with HootSuite.
We’d like to add more features to Ow.ly.
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.84 votes
We are currently considering ways to stream social network data.
Have the option to mute tweets with hashtags in your timeline and lists.83 votes
We see how this feature could be useful.
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.

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.
Simple enough, allow standard, native Retweets to be autoscheduled instead of having to 'edit' and break the RT model.79 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?
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!79 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.
I think for many Users it could be very important to have a language filter.75 votes
i.e., I could set up autoschedule so that twitter will post 6 posts a day, while facebook only posts 3, even when I constantly add both to my posts.75 votes
Allow users to set a different maximum of AutoScheduled posts per day for different social media accounts.
For example, I don't want to post more than three times a day to my Facebook followers as it will probably annoy them, but I would like to post around 6 times per day for Twitter followers. Please update AutoSchedule to allow this and give me credit for the idea (preferably in the form of money or free hootsuiting) ;-)74 votes
