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.
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.37 votes
Great idea! For now, you can filter out resolved assignments in the top view by choosing “Open” in the drop down.
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.36 votes
This is an excellent feature suggestion, and we’ll continue to monitor how many users would like to implement this feature.
When FB friends post updates with games they are playing (like Farmville) I like to hid them. They don't show up on FB after I hide them, but they keep showing up in Hootsuite. Hidden people are removed from Hootsuite, but not hidden games36 votes
We hope to add further Facebook functionality in future releases.
Rather than make us pay an additional $60 a year to someone else for an ad-on, I'd like to see Hootsuite add internal support for posting to Pinterest, just like I can to Google +, Twitter, FB, etc.36 votes
Allow scheduling of RSS feed updates. For instance to look for an update at 9:30am, 12:30am, and 4:00pm. Market open, midday, and close. :)36 votes
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.
Hootsuite is working on Opera, but there are some little issues. Please fix these and support Opera Browser...36 votes
Though HootSuite does not currently support the Opera browser, we hope to do so in the future.
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!35 votes
Great suggestion! We’re always looking for ways to improve the appearance of posts to social networks through HootSuite.
I was truly devastated when I realized that the Hootsuite Owl logo was changed a few months ago. Prior to being the drab, dark and mysterious black owl, it was an inviting owl that really made me wake up wanting to log into my Hootsuite account. I highly recommend that you bring it back.
Saw this previously posted and marked as complete but it is not resolved. When adding a profile to a Twitter list ALL lists should show up not just the lists that are in a Hootsuite stream on the dashboard. When I try to add a user to a list only those lists show that are in streams and all other lists are missing. This is a lame function that has been bugging me for a year. Please fix it it's a no brainer.35 votes
This is something we’re considering to implement.
I'd rather use a native app on my mac than a mac created from the web app by fluid.35 votes
While this is not in the immediate road map, we hope to revisit this in future updates to our Web Dashboard.
Thank you for your suggestion!

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!!35 votes
When viewing your twitter feed, please include images and videos inline so you can see them at a glance, without having to do anything extra.35 votes
This is a great suggestion that we agree would be more beneficial to our users.
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 service34 votes
A new app has recently been added to the Hootsuite App Directory, RSS Auto Publisher, that publishes feeds up to the minute. You can check it out here: http://ow.ly/z9okY
This tag is supported by the Open Graph protocol: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/opengraph/34 votes
Interesting suggestion. We’ll examine this further.
LinkedIn Functionality34 votes
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.34 votes
This would be an interesting idea to include in bulk uploading. We’ll look at adding this feature in future releases. Thank you!
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.33 votes
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.
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.33 votes
We’re always looking at further ways to make autoscheduling easier for our users.
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.
- Don't see your idea?
