  1. add the ability to set different autoschedule options for each network.

    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.

    • I wish I could block users from within Hootsuite DASHBOARD, not just contacts

      Presently, there is no way to block someone from Dashboard without reporting them as Spam. The only way to non-spam block someone is to do so through Contacts, which means they must be following you or you them, and it is unwieldy if you're blocking many people at once.

      I recommend an option in dashboard beside "Report Spammer" which is simply "Block".

      • Sync read tweets between devices. Start current view at oldest new tweet.

        Echofon does this and will remain my client until you can add this functionality. I'd rather use Hootsuite instead so I hope you will add this ability.

        Again, maintain a sync of read tweets between devices AND set the window to show your oldest "new" tweet first so you can scroll up to the latest.

          • Allow sending email notifications to "on duty" team members on @replies and DMs

            This is the one feature that I really miss from CoTweet. Basically, team members get to select whether they are "on duty" for a particular account, and if so get emails every time there is a new mention or dm. This allows us to be responsive without having to stay logged into the web app all day.

              • Reduce the price of adding a vanity URL

                $49.00 is still too much for this service, especially when it won’t even work with the Hootlet bookmark.

                • include original tweet text beneath ow.ly images!

                  I used to use yfrog for free, and "upgraded" to Hootsuite's paid service. I'm shocked that my tweet-text isn't showing up under the images I'm posting on ow.ly. This is a deal-breaker unless it gets fixed...

                    Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll definitely look at expanding what ow.ly can offer and adding this to the service in the future.

                        • Automatic Translation of non-english tweets

                          There are many non-english tweets in some of my streams. I would like them to be automatically translated to English. Should be a preference that says what language you want them to be translated to.

                            Added translation to the iPhone app as a starter. You can translate to/from 50+ languages and automatically translate to your default.

                              Rather than make us pay an additional $60 a year to someone else for an ad-on, I'd like to see Hootsuite add internal support for posting to Pinterest, just like I can to Google +, Twitter, FB, etc.

                                Even if its just the basics. Followers, photo likes, most engaging photos. Instagram would be an amazing addition for Analytics reports.
