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".

  1. 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!

        • Please return "Favorite" icon from pull-down menu.

          I think "Favorite" icon should NOT be hidden in pull-down menu.

          • 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!

              • 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.

                • 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.

                      • hootlet - have it ignore bowser names from auto fill

                        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.

                          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!!

                                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?

                                    • allow us to "mark read" or "mark responded to" mentions, as well as "assign".

                                      When more than one person has access to an account, we're allowed to assign that tweet to a certain team member. When the tweet is responded to, it says "So and so responded to this". This means the tweet has been taken care of, and we can all move on.
                                      I'd like the option to mark tweets in that column as "read" or "acknowledged", even if we haven't responded to them. Some tweets need no response, like a "Thanks for the RT!"
                                      This would be seriously beneficial to my OCDness.

                                      • Remove From List

                                        Is it possible to get a "Remove From List" button in a profile details as same as "Add To List"?

                                        • A color system to identify quickly those who follow me, those who do not follow me and the fans

                                          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.
