I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

    • allow separate searches for each of your feeds with the new suggested content feature

      Currently the Beta test for "Suggested Content" only allows you to run one search. If you have multiple feeds, being able to tailor or customize searches of each of those feeds is paramount to success.
      I would love to see this option added, so that I can tailor searches for each of my feeds.

      • add the ability to set different autoschedule options for each network.

        i.e., I could set up autoschedule so that twitter will post 6 posts a day, while facebook only posts 3, even when I constantly add both to my posts.

          • Press ESCAPE key to clear and close the entry box when you dont want to sub

            Like Gtalk, Msn, OCS, or other instant messenger, when you press the ESCape key, it closes the current window. For the browser hootsuite I would like to have a similiar aproach. Sometimes im writting a tweet, suddenly I give up that idea and dont want to submit it. I'd like to, when i press the ESCape key, have the box that i was typing getting cleared and closed.

            • Add a way to delete, edit and otherwise refine streams shared with a team.

              I often share streams with my team, but they are not always useful for forever. I'd like to be able to delete, edit or otherwise be able to control and refine these shared streams.
              This would reduce clutter and make it easier for team members to find new shared streams.

              • allow scheduled tweets to be paused in bulk

                Sometimes we get a call from a client to pause all activity for a period of hours/days because of some approval delay or unrelated crisis. At the moment we go into the Monthly view and drag all the scheduled stuff out an extra period of time. It would be great just to have a pause button that pauses all scheduled comms, ideally at a Team level (because a team usually works on content across one Twitter and one FB account)

                • allow us to add FaceBook Interests as a stream on my dashboard

                  I would like to be able to view my 'Interests' on Facebook as a stream on my Dashboard. For instance, I do marketing and pr for a number of hotels. The hotels are grouped on my Interest list and I'd like to be able to see when each hotel posts something that i might want to share with my various social networks.
                  thanks,
                  J

                    • Distinguish title and body for Blogs

                      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.

                            We need clean the assignments area sometimes. It's important to us remove or delete the resolved assignments. Just add a remove or delete option to the assignmets area.

                              Great idea! For now, you can filter out resolved assignments in the top view by choosing “Open” in the drop down.

                            • configure the Auto-Schedule function to not delay RTs and replies

                              Instead of kicking the toggle back and forth between Auto-Schedule and not, I would like to see a way that RTs or replies are not auto-scheduled and it is recognized that, that information should be sent in real time.

                                    While we don’t check RSS feeds for specific times, you can choose which time interval to check for new updates.

                                    We may consider specific times in the future.

                                    Keep in mind that current RSS technology does not allow for precise updates on the hour. However, doing a general check usually allows us to retrieve the latest post within minutes.

                                  • 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!

                                    • Add an option to AutoSchedule Rss Feeds

                                      It would be great to have the option to select "Auto Schedule" for the RSS feed publishing. This will help prevent our accounts to post too many things at once. The only options are the frequency of which HootSuite will check the RSS feeds.
                                      Thank you!

                                        This is a great idea! We’ll look into implementing this in the future. Thank you!

                                        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.
