  1. Possible change in layout? The hover-over side menu is beginning to get in the way, also a fresh colour scheme couldn't hurt.

    • 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. :-)

                • Update the Hootsuite web dashboard UI to match the rest of your UI updates.

                  It would be great if your web dashboard UI got a refresh to match the rest of your apps. The current/ old UI feels really dated and slow.

                  • Helvetica is never going to be used on ow.ly

                    On ow.ly, the CSS code for font-family goes "Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif"

                    With the code as it is now, Helvetica will never be used unless:

                    a) The user has told their browser to override websites' stylesheets and to always use Helvetica no matter what

                    or

                    b) if the user has Helvetica installed, but not Arial (this is very, very unlikely)

                    If you want Helvetica to be used ahead of Arial, then it needs to be listed ahead of it; and if you want Arial used ahead of Helvetica, then why list Helvetica at all? As I said before, the odds that a user…

                    • add sent tweets to analytics/reporting

                      It would be nice to have social media activity added in the reporting. For twitter it is not possible to add the sent tweets (only the retweeted or the mentioned tweets), but I would like to see all the activity, not only the activity that has engagement

                      • a tool to export the followers of a company in Linkedin

                        The idea is to get a tool to know easily who is following our company and our showcase. We have hundreds of followers and the only way to know who there are is to navigate to html pages that display only 10 followers per page.
                        Do not understand that nothing exist yet!!!!

                        • Allow a community user level that can post/read but none of the other business level functions

                          Have found a user case for our open source software community that we would like some trusted community members (champions) to be able to curate a twitter account ~ these are not internal marketers/community managers but external community members.

                          However this takes up a user seat for a pro account, the community is unlikely to need all the functionality that warrants an extra paid seat and this leads to Hootsuite not able to cost effectively scale for our need. It starts to get overly expense once we start needing to add extra full users just so our community can share…

                          • Showing of Pictures and Videos from Facebook and Twitter

                            I am using Hootsuite in my office network because there is a proxy that blocks twitter and facebook and other sites. I like the fact that I am able to see the timeline/news feed even thought facebook and twitter is blocked in our network. However, the photos and videos are not displayed at all. I think it will be great if Hootsuite can find a way to display the photos and videos just like how the statuses, wall posts are displayed without any problem.

                            • Have a Schedule later, for when I want to tweet about the same link, or topic but don't want to Autoschedule back to back tweets.

                              Many times I'm using Hootsuite Bookmarklet or even in Hootsuite dashboard and I'm writing a few tweets in a row about the same topic or even about the same blog post, or same link but I want to autoschedule them easier. Could be great to set a small autoschedule option to not schedule them back to back maybe at least every other or whatever... you get my point.. I hope.

                                At the moment you can only put the personal text and hashtags before the title of the feed RSS' article.
                                Could we have the possibility to add that after the message?

                                  • Pick a day for Autoschedule

                                    I like using the Autoschedule feature but often I want to schedule multiple posts across a few weeks. It's a pain to have to go into my Publisher and change the days on several posts. It'd be great when I select the Autoschedule option to also be able to select the specific day I'd like it to be posted on. Instead of them all piling up on today.

                                    • Take me directly to the dashboard when I am logged in vs. to Hootsuite.com

                                      Up until recently, when I would go to hootsuite.com and was logged in, it would take me directly to the dashboard. Now when I go to hootsuite.com it takes me to the main website with a link to the dashboard.

                                      If I am logged in, please just redirect me to the dashboard so I can get on with my work. Yes, I could book mark the page, yes I could go directly to /dashboard, but I generally just use my Keyboard for work and click CMD+T to open a new tab and type in hootsuite.com into the address bar. This…

                                      • Social inbox showing all activity & engagement received on my published posts

                                        Rather than having to visit each tab for Facebook, Twitter, G+ etc and check if someone has commented, shared or liked our updates, I'd like a tab and column where I can chose what types of interactions I want to be fed such as "all likes on pages, all comments, all re-tweets" etc...

                                        • Maximum posts per profile for Autoscheduler

                                          For the autoscheduler, I would like to set a different number of posts per social media profile:

                                          For example:
                                          Twitter Profile A: 2 posts a day
                                          Twitter Profile B: 4 posts a day
                                          Twitter Profile C: 3 posts a day
