    • hide tabbar when there's only one tab

      To optimize the use of the screen, maybe it is possible to hide the tabbar when there's only one active tab. I've placed all streams on one tab.

      • add a logfile for team actions

        I need to have a track of every change made by a team member (post/tweet/comment). It's more a legal/security issue for my custromer. Doesn't have to be sexy, a simple logfile would do the job.

        Thx!

          • allow me to see more than 50 Tweets when I refresh the desktop (like on the iPhone - 200 Tweets)

            Instead of showing me just the 50 latest Tweets, I would like to see more than that when I log in or refresh my desktop. The iPhone app lets me see 200, which I think allows for a better experience.

            • Add the ability to have template folders....

              Add the ability to create custom folders for templates. I run a small restaurant/bar that uses Facebook, Twitter, & Google + and find myself spending more time sorting through the correct posts for each day than I do anything else.

              • [Hootlet] problem: If I schedule to the past by mistake, everything I just wrote is gone.

                An example. I want to post a song from Soundcloud to my networks.

                See picture: http://i.imgur.com/u9pIOIZ.png

                When I press schedule, this happens: http://i.imgur.com/yYNTcQy.png

                And everything I just wrote is lost. I can't get it back. Maybe I wrote 2000 characters, tagged 20 people and made all sorts of stuff; too bad, it's just gone.

                (exaggeration promotes understanding)

                Hope to see this fixed soon.

                • Include bookmarks for Facebook app. https://www.facebook.com/bookmarks/interests

                  Creating bookmarks on facebook allows a fluid and organized network.
                  I have a bookmark for my connections "music", "science" etc ... And I would find them in Hootsuite.

                  • Better separation of fields in Facebook posts

                    If I say there are 4 text fields in a Facebook post (My Comment, Title, URL, Description), I can say that HootSuite only uses 2 of them (My Comment, Title). I would like to see the post include the URL and the Description.

                    • Show the feed icon next to the tab name so it's easier to identify

                      Most of my feeds are listed under my name so that's what's listed in the tab, however it would be useful if I could identify what each tab was by the type of feed it is. So, if it's Facebook, then show the small Facebook icon in the tab next to my name.

                        This is an interesting idea for tabs specific to certain social network. However, it should be noted that tabs are actually social network agnostic.

                        • Add the feature of attribution links

                          Some SMM services have an "attribution link" added to Facebook posts right of the Share links, it´s a great idea for an Agency to promote their services, thus getting more customers and upgrading their Hootsuite accounts to Enterprise ;-)

                              I would love to have a button in the compose box that suggests multiple options for shortening 140+ character tweet bodies using SMS/txt abbreviations and deletion of non-essential words. I love the creative process of getting there myself, but sometimes it would be nice to automate the task in order to quickly refocus on whatever is at-hand...lecture, presentation, entertainment, etc.

                              Thanks for considering!

                              • Security problem. Needs fixing please!

                                My computer is open for anyone to use. I have HootSuite running on Google Chrome. Instead of logging in to all my accounts, I set up Last Pass so I only need one password. I also have it configured to log off of everything when I exit the browser. When I unclick the box that allows HootSuite to stay logged in, it should log off when ever the window is closed. I have tried it from every angel I could think of and it still is logged on when I pull up a fresh browser. I really like HootSuite and…

                                    • Allow users to set certain friends accounts to different colors!

                                      I'd like to be able to set peoples status updates (accounts in general) to certain colors. Mainly on the titter page. It would quickly allow users to know whose status it is and it would look more organized.

                                      • Scroll through far more tweets when viewing a Twitter user

                                        You search for a Twitter account or click on a name. even clicking 'timeline'; only the most recent 10 tweets are displayed. This is not enough, you should be able to scroll through far more - preferably almost unlimited as in native twitter.

                                        This is both to asses the user (shall I follow?) and to find specific tweets to read or RT, for example.

                                        I may know the user tweeted something (perhaps twitter included it in an email message to me) but I want to RT or reply from a different account to the one I received the message to.…

                                        • Notes- Custom fields

                                          Allow us to make notes on certain days (Easter, Gala Event, etc) so we can effectively PLAN and not just publish through HootSuite. Also, if you could somehow integrate with Facebook Ads- that would be amazing. If not, allow us to mark when we are advertising so we can look at what we are advertising compared to what we are posting. Thanks!
