  1. Add scheduling tweets to Official RT option

    I love the addition of the official RT api. Thanks Hootsuite team!
    Now what I'd really like to add to that functionality is the ability to schedule when they go out.

      Unfortunately, this is not yet possible with Twitter’s API. If it ever becomes possible, we’ll consider adding this as a feature.

    • automatically follow users i mention in my tweets that i don't follow. because i just tag them and i am too lazy to follow by myself.

        This is an interesting idea. We’ll consider looking at this in the future.

      • translate twitter search embed html into FBML so I can embed on a facebook fan page.

        We're using a hashtag to follow an ongoing conversation online and I'd like to create an easy portal for non-twitter users who are on facebook to see how things are unfolding. As I see it, it's simply translating the existing code into FBML and using the static app.

          • Edit filters

            Currently you can filter which friends are included in a Facebook stream, but you cannot edit those filters when you want to add or remove a friend from the stream. Currently the only way to add or remove a friend from the stream is by creating a whole new stream from scratch

              Great idea! This would definitely reduce time in adding or removing friends from the stream. Thanks for your feedback!

              • Hide the detail of daily reports

                When working with a report with too many daily posts or retweets the report actually is not so useful because you have to scroll through all that noise... Is it possible to have either the daily RT or Tweets graphic without detail? just like the top 10 maybe?

                • Document Upload for Team Use

                  For Enterprise: I'd love to see a place where teams can upload a document that contains their social emergency SOP & other brand guidelines. These are essential parts of social media marketing, and should be close to the action (as in, in Hootsuite, not just on a company intranet page or in someone's email).

                    • Provide a TICK COLOR OPTION to show which Account is being posted to

                      Please provide a GREEN or RED TICK option to show which account posts are going to.
                      The green tick simply doesn't show up, especially on the Android app in bright lighting. Most of my five accounts have greenish avatars, and posting to the wrong one can be a big problem. Maybe other bright colour options would be of use, too.
                      Alternatively, allow all non-selected accounts to be shaded out so only active accounts stand out and are clearly visible.

                        Hi there! Have you tried using the new profile selector on the web dashboard? You can turn this on through Settings > Preferences. Please let me know if this assists you. I can also merge this into the Android app feedback specifically if the problem is isolate to mobile. Thank you!

                        • allow a default assignment

                          When I choose Assign, I have to choose a Network, even though we only have one, and then choose a person to assign the tweet to, even though I assign it to the same person 90% of the time. I would like to have HootSuite allow me to set a default or remember my choices. This slows down the process of assigning quite a bit.

                          • Put some sort of "Are you sure?" confirmation button after you hit "send now". (Which could be disabled , of course)

                            I have MANY times hit this button when i really meant to schedule it for later. Other times I'm in the middle of composing a post and hit a soft enter (shift/Enter) to start a new line, but that just posts it. (I'm used to doing the soft enter thing in FB private messages because Enter sends it right away...)

                              • Ow.ly photos should have unlimited comment length

                                When you upload a photo to Hootsuite the Ow.ly image has a comment section but is hamstringed by the twitter 140 character limit. Minus room for the posters user name and room for the image link.

                                Instead the behaviour should reflect what many other sites like Plixi (TweetPhoto) do. That is to say your comment can be whatever length you want. But when tweeted the actual tweet will be truncated (with room for the photos link of course.)

                                  • add a delay between postings of a single post to multiple FB groups so that your FB account won't get banned due to HS posting too quickly

                                    If I send the same message to multiple groups through your tool, it will get me blocked, but if I send that same exact message manually, it doesn't. My guess is that it's because hootsuite is sending them way too fast and FB is catching it as spamming, which makes complete sense.

                                    I would recommend that at some point down the road hootsuite looks at how they're posting a message - instead of placing the burden on the end-user (me) to tweak each message, losing the benefit of using a tool like yours, I would suggest that your designers adjust…

                                    • "Authoring" filtering for RSS

                                      I would LOVE to see filtering by author for the Atom/RSS import. Since I contribute many places, I want my own stuff to post automagically to my accounts like dlvr.it does.

                                        Very interesting idea to support at the HootSuite level. We’ll look at adding this in the future.

                                      • Hootlet Scheduling Calendar "Heat Map" for At-A-Glance Post Distribution

                                        When I pull up the calendar, I'd love to see shading according to how many posts have been scheduled. That way I can make sure I'm not over loading a particular day.

                                        I'd want to customize my thresholds

                                        For example:

                                        White - 0 posts
                                        Dark Green - 1-5 posts
                                        Greenish Yellow - 6-10 posts
                                        Yellow - 10-15 posts
                                        Orange - 16-20 posts
                                        Red - 21-25 posts

                                        These ranges should be completely custom.

                                        • Change appearance of Facebook "Like" thumb

                                          Right now, when you "Like" a Facebook post, the thumb changes color from gray to blue, but just ever-so-slightly. It's sometimes really hard to tell if you've liked something or not.

                                          Maybe fill in the whole thumb with blue or something? Anything that might be somewhat of a better indicator. :-)
