  1. 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.

        Preview post before send for all selected social medias is very important to see and test the final result

        • 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.

              • When we click on "Compose message," we should be given the choice to ...

                either post our content to all of the selected accounts from that one window OR via individual windows for each account.

                For example, if I have my Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn profiles all tied to my Hootsuite account, I should be able to tailor the content I am posting to how each of those accounts displays the information. As it stands right now, if I want to post an article to Twitter complete with hashtags, those hashtags will be included when I post them on FB or Google+ whether I want them there or not.

                  • 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 ;-)

                      • Have an Auto-truncate Option for Tweet body with multiple options

                        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…

                                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.…

                                  • develop an app that will allow my teams/members to update Twitter, Facebook, etc. profile pictures and banners from Hootsuite!

                                    Right now, I have to make someone available with the master log in information for my social networks to be able to change the profile and banners on our social media accounts. Allowing teams/members to submit profile and banner pictures for approval and/or to post them directly through the Hootsuite platform would be vastly more efficient!

                                    • 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.
