    • 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.

              • ... provide an option for adding text alternatives, such as title and long description, to tweeted images

                When we share images without meaningful text alternatives, these images will not be accessible to our followers with visual impairments.

                Providing text alternatives for non-text content is one of the most important accessibility requirements, but it is not always possible - or practical - to describe an image within a tweet. As far as I'm aware, Easy Chirp is the only app that makes it easy to attach both title and description to tweeted images without affecting the character count (http://www.easychirp.com/).

                Accessibility is a legal requirement for many government departments and educational institutions, so adding this option to…

                • Allow me to expand the compose message box by dragging the corner (make it as big as I'd like)

                  The compose box is ok for Twitter, but when doing FB & G+ messages, it would be helpful to go past 4 lines. Make the box expandable to any size I want by letting me drag the corner, just like in a lot of forums. it is currently too small.

                    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.

                            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!

                              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.

                                  I wonder who follows me on own timeline. I'm getting confused many twitter and would like to give unfollow in some, but I'm wondering if that person follows me. I want to clean my own twitter by HootSuite. The system could be color eg red color for who I follow and come after me. Green for my fans and yellow for who I follow, and she follows. I know it something. The colors help a lot. Thank you for your attention

                                    Have you used the People Browser in HootSuite? This easily displays all the info of who follows you and so on.

                                    • unique subject line for notifications

                                      We assign escalations to a CS team who then receive an email notification, the current notifications don't have any unique reference in the email url which makes it a nightmare for logging responses our side and theirs. Could we please have the functionality to at least indicate which network the contact relates to (Facebook, Twitter) and the time/date of the contact? This would really help make this a practical application for our organisation to grow with and roll out to other businesses. Many thanks

                                        This is a tremendous idea. In fact, it is one we ourselves would love to use. We’re notifying our dev team for further review.

                                      • Enable messages to be pulled in from LinkedIn & Facebook

                                        It seems that I can't pull in a stream of my direct messages from Facebook & LinkedIn where I can with Twitter. This means I can't get away from using LinkedIn & Facebook entirely. I can't imagine this would be a difficult feature to add, but what do I know?

                                        • Auto-Schedule in dashboard and Hootlet to be independent from each other

                                          Right now, if you toggle on auto-schedule in HootSuite's web dashboard, it also toggles it in the Hootlet, and vice versa.
