  1. Add a native mac app that doesn't require fluid

    I'd rather use a native app on my mac than a mac created from the web app by fluid.

      • check RSS feed for updates more often

        Please make it possible to check our RSS feed for updates more often than every hour. Our news stories are highly time sensitive, so checking every hour simply isn't enough. Every quarter would be acceptable. Make this possible as soon as possible or we will be forced to switch to a competing service

        • Images uploaded directly to Google+

          Similar to this http://feedback.hootsuite.com/forums/40182-hootsuite-com-web-dashboard/suggestions/2396546-upload-images-directly-to-twitter-com-not-to-ow-l I'd like to request the ability to upload images directly to Google+ pages, rather than having to link to http://ow.ly/i/.

          Being unable to do this makes sharing images through Hootsuite across all three networks pointless. You're better off doing it manually on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter for the best optimisation as the images are larger, clearer and more appealing when opened/viewed directly in the various social networks!

            • 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.

              • Please make the bulk uploading system for uploading to multiple accounts with different messages.

                The current system allows bulk uploading to multiple accounts. However, you have to upload the same message to each account. There should be a field "ACCOUNT" in the CSV that indicates which handle the message should be uploaded to.
                This would greatly ease the burden on managing multiple accounts. The more fields in the bulk upload, the better as far as I am concerned, but indicating the specific account is the most important by far.

                  This would be an interesting idea to include in bulk uploading. We’ll look at adding this feature in future releases. Thank you!

                • add global filters for keyword, application, or user

                  It would be wonderful if, as is with some other clients, I could filter out tweets from specific users, filter out mentions of specific users or applications (like paper.li, for example) or by keyword.

                    HootSuite now has filters based on keyword and Klout score. This feature is currently exclusive to users on a Pro plan.

                    Filters based on application and user is also something worth considering.

                  • Minimum time to set posts apart in hootlet

                    The new autoschedule option for hootlet is great... but What if I wanted to use it to schedule posts for a network for the next week...
                    There should be an option IMO to limit how close together posts could be posted on each network via auto schedule, (say 12 hours apart for example) then when im looking for "next weeks posts", I can autoschedule and they will fill up the week.

                        This feature does depend on the API calls available with each social network profile. However, if it is available, we’ll considering adding such a stream to HootSuite.

                      • Add Retweet to all feature for Ios users

                        I Noticed that on Android phones you can use re tweet to all method, but on Iphone you can't it takes a long time to re tweet this feature would be a big plus if added to the Ios version for Iphones. I'm sure it will make a lot of users very happy if they is added into the app.
                        Please work on making this happen thank you

                          When you open Hoolet for page in Firefox for example. It adds "- Mozilla Firefox" to post. Have it ignore common browser names from default post.

                            Currently, the Hootlet grabs text from a website’s tag. It’s come to our attention that some installations of Firefox, particularly in Windows, insert the browser name there. We’ll look at ways to filter that out.

                          • Add google+ for mobile app

                            If Google + is the next massive thing why can we not add it to our networks on the mobile app. Gazillions of us update on the go!!

                                    Great to use but all of the post suggestions so far are US based and not really relevant to my UK followers.

                                    It would be great to see country specific filtering where you can add in your country and or regions in the settings section

                                    • 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!

                                        If you are following a lot of people, it can get confusing trying to remember who is assigned to what user name. I think it would be fantastic if you could add a setting which allows us to show people's real names in the timeline in place of their user name.

                                          We currently have this as an option with our iPhone and iPad apps, and may implement it in a future release for the web app.

                                        • I want to rename a stream

                                          Hi,
                                          I have set up a few geocode search streams.
                                          My problem is that they appear as:
                                          Human rights geocode:51.4688672,-0.2548867,35km
                                          Human rights geocode:52.50,13.42,35km
                                          Human rights geocode:27.42,89.68,300km

                                          I struggle to identify which one is UK, Germany, or Bhutan.

                                          It would be very useful to have an option to rename stream.
