Feedback and Ideas

How can we improve Buffer?

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".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Draft Posts

    A 'draft' function would amazing. Somewhere to save half-formed posts that you can go back to at a later date and add links, images or video, and then schedule them up as normal.

    It'd be a lifesaver for those working long-lead who receive assets for posts last minute. I have notes all over the place reminding me to Buffer tweets when I receive a certain image or when a page finally goes live!

    • Facebook/LinkedIn Tagging

      Right now I can tag a twitter user, but it won't properly reciprocate to Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+ (hence they will not be notified that I'm talking about that page or person).

      This is stopping us from adopting this more broadly and still go in after and have to tag manually.

          Hi everyone!

          We currently have a tool in our browser extension called the Power Scheduler, which you can get by getting the extension at https://buffer.com/extensions and switching to the Power Scheduler tab.

          Wanted to update this idea and also share that we’re currently beta testing a new way of managing posts that you might want to share more than once.

          We’ve seen this being used a lot for evergreen content, organizing topics, or simply to repeat posts a few times to help reach more people and timezones. Will continue to post updates as we make progress on this!

          Cheers,
          Patrik

        • Re-Buffer All Old Posts (or Bulk Re-Buffer)

          I have a Twitter quotes account where my old tweets I reuse every 2-4 months. I have 500-600 tweets at a time that I use and it's a bit time confusing to have to manually rebuffer all my old tweets.

          It would be wonderful if there was a "re-buffer all" button or at least an option where you bulk re-buffer old posts.

          • Add Tumblr integration

            Allow users to draft and queue posts for Tumblr accounts. Additionally, allow reposting features similar to Twitter's buffer retweet feature.

                Hi there everyone,

                Thanks so much for the great suggestions and comments here!

                While we do currently support posting to Google+ Pages, we don’t currently have access to post on Google+ Profiles. Google hasn’t opened up this API to any third party apps like Buffer yet, though we’ll be excited to follow along with any changes there!

                In the meantime, voting for this idea will make sure that you receive updates from us in case anything changes with our posting permissions for Google+. Thanks again!

                Cheers,
                Patrik

              • Incorporate a pause option for scheduled posts.

                Right now, I have to cancel a post in order to pause it. But then I lose the layout of the actual post that I had setup. See example: https://cloudup.com/c8YjEhFDCaM Add a pause option.

                  Hi there,

                  Thanks so much for the amazing suggestions and support here! Definitely can see how valuable it would be to quickly pause your posting schedule without losing your posts or the order that they’re in.

                  At the moment our recommended method for pausing your schedule is by going to the Schedule tab and then clicking on the day or days that you’d like to pause posting. Then, when you’re ready to resume, just click on the days in your schedule again to re-activate them. (Quick note: this currently only works for posts in your regular queue and won’t affect any posts that were custom scheduled for a specific time.)

                  I know this workaround isn’t ideal at all and we’re currently exploring a few ways that we can make this easier. Would love to hear any ideas you might have for this or how you’d use a pause feature within…

                • Tagging photos in scheduled posts for twitter

                  If you could offer us the opportunity of tagging accounts in the photo of the scheduled post. This would be a super greAt help for me which helps getting more retweets for the accounts I manage.

                    Thanks so much for the votes and comments on this one! I know that tagging people in photos is something that would be amazing to handle through Buffer.

                    At the moment, Twitter has not added this to their API support for third party tools like Buffer, so photo tagging is currently only available directly through Twitter.com. We’d be really eager to add this as soon as possible and will keep you all updated if anything changes!

                  • YOURLS: URL shortening

                    Any chance that YOURLS (http://yourls.org/) can be added as the URL shortening service? I know many of us host our own URL shortening service via YOURLS, and getting Buffer to use that will keep our branding consistent.

                    Thanks!

                      Xing is the No.1 network in Germany, Austria and Switzerland where Linkedin isn't that strong. If you want to grow your user base in this market with 15M users then you will have to support Xing.

                        • Cheaper upgrade plan for a longer queue

                          I"d like a longer queue, but $100 for the Awesome Plan is just too much.

                          I understand that you offer a LOT for the $100, but I really only want the longer queue.

                          I'd be willing to pay significantly less than $100 and get nothing more than a longer queue.

                            Would love to be able to have the RSS feed function automatically queue up your articles/blog posts to your social media feed, ideally via a configurable template. (Eg: Post title, shortened URL, hashtag). Functionality would be similar to the Revive Old Post plugin for WP.

                              I would love the ability to have multiple queues for a single profile. This would allow me to schedule specific items to their queue, and potentially automate different items on a separate queue.

                                  Would be nice if Buffer users could use links with custom domains in the messages they buffer on social. I know this is possible using Bit.ly but with Rebrandly it's much faster and simpler and you can use multiple domains. (full disclosure I'm the founder @Rebrandly)

                                      • add more than one photo in a facebook post

                                        I saw that there is already an idea here for multiple photos on twitter posts... I would like to extend that and suggest multiple photos per post for all platforms, particularly facebook!
                                        I am hesitant to upgrade to a paid plan when a lot of posts I will still need to go into facebook and schedule in order to have multiple photos.
                                        Thanks!!

                                        • Scheduling your Replies in Buffer

                                          Need to have an option where a user can schedule his reply via buffer at the specific time without breaking the Twitter reply thread.

                                          This would be beneficial for brands ( and users alike) to reply in bulk and schedule according to consumer timezones for maximum effect.

                                          Please make this happen Team Buffer :)
