  1. Drag and drop to change order of pre/auto-scheduled tweets.

    If I have 10 autoscheduled/pre-scheduled tweets in line to go out, let me change the order of them by dragging and dropping, without having to edit time. Keep the optimal times as suggested by your auto-scheduling feature.

      • Create Customization options for the Publisher Suggested Content feature.

        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.

        • Enable us to delete Google+ posts within HootSuite.

          It's possible to delete Facebook and Twitter posts from within HootSuite, but this feature seems to be missing for Google+ posts.

          Can you please make it possible for us to delete Google+ posts within HootSuite? That would be really convenient. Thanks for considering the idea!

            Great suggestion! We’ll look at the possibility of adding this functionality in the future, as long as it’s possible within the Google API. Thanks!

          • 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…

              Hello everyone,

              Today we will begin rolling out the latest in our series of Hootlet improvements. The new features will begin appearing for some users at 11:30 AM PDT, and should be available to everyone by the end of the day.

              This release has the following improvements:

              - Improved graphical Link Previews

              - A Live Preview for text-only networks such as Twitter, which shows you exactly how your post will appear

              - Improved logic for preserving text you typed while switching your target networks

              - Writing a custom message will now not insert the Page Title into your Twitter posts, allowing you full control over your message

              - Pasting the link URL into the message box will prevent Hootlet from auto-inserting the link into your Twitter message, giving you full control over where the link appears in your message, allowing you to place hashtags or mentions at the end,…

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Choosing week's first day

                  Most countries start their week on Monday, while others do it on Sunday. Being able to choose whether the week starts on Sunday or on Monday would make it easier for people scheduling their tasks on the calendar.

                  • 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.

                      Please make it possible to separately enable or disable audio and/or visual notifications from Stream => Preferences. Default to preference from general settings.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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?

                              I spent 20 minutes looking for a billing email or phone number. It is not appropriate to ask customers to post billing issues on a forum or send a message on social media. I am not sure how anyone thought that was acceptable. Billing issues, concerns, or questions are PRIVATE.

                              • 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.

                                  When posting to Wordpress there is no way to set the title of the post. I suggest using the first line for the title and the rest for the body.

                                    • Add "near:" search operator

                                      Twitter now supports the search operator "near:", followed by the name of a place, e.g. near:"Brisbane, Australia". There are other sites now offering this functionality under a "local search" banner (see monitter) and that's a super useful targeting tool for small business.

                                      Please add support for this operator and allow geo search.

                                      Thank you,
                                      Gal

                                        Currently, you can do geocode specific searches. For example: “geocode:49.2846165,-123.0954835,25km”

                                        We do not yet offer functionality for the “near:” operator. However, this is on our road map.

                                      • You provide a 800 number or an email address so your customers can contact you

                                        I'm so tired of having to tweet and wait for somebody to contact me. Give us a chat feature, number to call or an email address at the very least so we can contact somebody with billing or technical issues.

                                        • The new mentions feature could be better

                                          The new mentions feature is good, would be better if you could enable or disable it.

                                          Best, if you could select where to search.

                                          Personally, I tend to mention the twitter account, even if there is a Facebook profile for a person or organization.

                                            Hello everyone,

                                            Thank you for your feedback on our @Mentions feature.

                                            Over the past week, we have rolled out several minor changes to how this feature works, with an eye to improving performance and ease of use, specifically:

                                            - The username lookup now pays better attention to where the cursor is positioned; if a @ is inserted before a username, that username is now highlighted and searched for

                                            - Punctuation should be recognized and handled better. Typing “@user,” will now automatically create a pill for “@user” and not include the comma. This works for any non-alphanumeric punctuation.

                                            - Performance, in general, should be improved

                                            - For power users, use of the feature via keyboard-only interactions should be faster and more reliable.

                                            Please continue to leave your feedback regarding this feature, as we review it frequently. We look forward to continuing to improve @Mentions with your support.

                                            Thank you,

                                            John Hallett…
