  1. Tag photos in a Tweet

    Twitter now allows you to tag people in photos without impacting on your 140 characters (https://blog.twitter.com/2014/photos-just-got-more-social).

    Doing this in HootSuite would be ace.

    • autoschedule retweets

      Simple enough, allow standard, native Retweets to be autoscheduled instead of having to 'edit' and break the RT model.

        Interesting idea! Currently, there is no scheduling available for native retweets. Would you see all types of scheduling being added, or just Autoscheduling?

          Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll look at the feasibility of doing this in the future. An opt-in setting would be necessary.

        • to add yourls support for own link shortening

          Use the API of the simple to configure yourls open source project to shorten links with the use of the own domain. ie. pro7.de/galileolive

          • Manage the new foursquare pages from Hootsuite

            • Schedule Facebook post for scheduled, but yet unpublished blog post

              It's great that we can schedule facebook posts with the image, but the blog post has to be live to do this. I would love the ability to enter my blog admin credentials so when I schedule a week's worth of blog posts to auto post in the future I can also pre-schedule the facbook posts before the blog post has gone live. We need a way for hootsuite to get into the blog and pull the info. Or whichever way is best; the bottom line is: it doesn't do any good to schedule a facebook post for a blog…

              • Export Followers to Excel

                Hello,

                I work for a large travel agency and my company has been using enterprise version of your software for quite some time. In addition, we have also been using CoTweet to fill in some gaps that we encountered with HootSuite, both browser and mobile versions. However, and due to my almost personal connection to HootSuite as I also use it for my private account, I wanted to share with you, in this private manner some of the things that would greatly rise value of HootSuite in the eyes of my company's leads, and I will be the first one…

                  This is a great idea. We’ll continue to monitor this feature request to gauge support amongst other HootSuite users.

                • Posting to LinkedIn Showcase pages

                  LinkedIn is creating showcase pages that are separate from the main company pages. I'd like to use HootSuite to post to those as well as company pages so I don't have to do this process manually for my client.

                  • add a filter to block foursquare and gowalla.

                    or indeed any custom filter. This could be achieved easily by allowing operators such as '-term' or 'NOT term' to the existing filter system.

                      • Allow private messages for Facebook profile account

                        Although available for facebook pages, it would make my life a lot easier if I had this option on my profile account too.

                        • Lower the price for new analytics. $50/ per report is very high

                          The reports look great, but at 10x the monthly cost of a pro membership, they seem very overpriced, considering most of the data you can get for free from their respective networks.

                          • Google+ Pages - Allow +1 and Reshares

                            Allow for doing a +1 on posts in our Google+ Page stream (like the Facebook stream allows a Like) and also the ability to do a reshare of someone's post in the stream (like the Twitter stream allows a retweet). t is too cumbersome to open each post in a browser window every time you want to perform these functions. The ability to comment on a post in the stream does work well already.

                              • Ability to export lists and other (user selected) data to Microsoft Excel

                                I use lists extensively to organize the streams that I monitor and target. I would like to be able to export All of my community (lists members, friends, followers, etc.) to excel so that I could conduct ad hoc analysis (e.g. sort by no. of followers), and add ad hoc columns per tweeter for notes, scores, etc.

                                Ideally I would be able to create a table where each community member is a row, and default columns would include twitter account follower, friend, listnames (up to 20 per account), number of followers and friends (people they follow), for each member. Any…

                                • add email notifications

                                  My client currently uses CoTweet and I use Hootsuite. I am trying to convince them to switch to Hootsuite and upgrade to an Enterprise plan but they absolutely need the ability to receive email notifications when they are mentioned in a post or someone replies to a post. Is this a functionality you are considering?

                                  • ... provide an option for adding text alternatives, such as title and long description, to tweeted images

                                    When we share images without meaningful text alternatives, these images will not be accessible to our followers with visual impairments.

                                    Providing text alternatives for non-text content is one of the most important accessibility requirements, but it is not always possible - or practical - to describe an image within a tweet. As far as I'm aware, Easy Chirp is the only app that makes it easy to attach both title and description to tweeted images without affecting the character count (http://www.easychirp.com/).

                                    Accessibility is a legal requirement for many government departments and educational institutions, so adding this option to…

                                    • include Facebook "likes" and "comments" in stats, just like bit.ly

                                      In bit.ly it shows the total number of Facebook "likes" and "comments" for a shortened link. It would be really helpful to have that same functionality in stats for Hootsuite.

                                      • Improve Hootlet

                                        Hello everyone,

                                        The Hootsuite Hootlet recently underwent some broad changes in order to align more closely with Facebook's Platform Policy, specifically section 2.3. You can find an explanation of this policy at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/review/prefill

                                        Due to the nature and urgency behind these changes, we were forced to make some uncomfortable compromises around Hootlet’s behaviour. These changes were broadly applied to all content regardless of the ultimate network being published to as a matter of expediency, not as a design preference.

                                        Work is currently underway to restore much of Hootlet’s original functionality, while remaining compliant with Facebook’s Platform Policy. The teams behind…

                                          I would prefer to link to content that is relevant to my audience in Norfolk, UK rather than Norfolk, Virginia in the USA. Being able to choose where the content gets pulled from would allow this.
