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. Add Instagram to accounts

    Buffer to Instagram would be good

      Imagine the option of seeing a calendar view of your queue either by week or by month so you can position posts and schedule and entire week or month in advance.

      • 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!

            Hey guys!

            Thanks so much for your votes and comments here :)

            We’re in the final stages of completing a scheduler in the extension which enables you to schedule something for several time slots. It’s already out there if you want to give it a go.

            If you click the “new scheduler” in the browser extension like so: http://cl.ly/image/1k3J1c0e3N1f
            Then you’re able to add the post for several slots like so: http://cl.ly/image/0z3t1Q0H0q0v

            Would love any feedback or questions :)

            Warmly,
            Åsa

          • Post Multiple Photos to Twitter

            With twitter allowing us to upload multiple photos to twitter in a single tweet this would be a great addition

            • 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.

              • Add Tumblr integration

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

                  • Best Time to Tweet

                    It'd be great if Buffer included a schedule-optimization feature for Twitter, similar to those offered by Tweriod (which is buggy) and SocialBro (which is confusing).

                    This feature would *automatically* optimize a user's tweets according to the optimal time for them to generate the most engagement.

                    Thanks.

                    • 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.

                      • Canva Integration

                        I've seen a recent post on the integration of a Canva button on Post Planner for Facebook. If Canva could be added to the Buffer dashboard allowing instant access to a free image design tool, I think that would be pretty amazing!

                          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.

                                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.

                                • 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 :)

                                    • Make editing easier across accounts

                                      I love Buffer for posting to Twitter, Facebook, and App.net. But sometimes, I notice mistakes after queuing a post to all three accounts, which means I have to edit the same post on each account. For posts like this, it would be great to just edit once on one account, then have the edits sync to all the other accounts.

                                        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.

                                        • Diaspora support

                                          Dear Buffer, I love your app. I'm considering subscribing, but a big barrier to me is the lack of support for Diaspora. While Diaspora is small currently, its distributed network and open architecture mean I own my data, so I would like to point the world there rather than any of the proprietary services. I have no affilliation with them, just feel that they're important, particularly as a parallel/backup while they grow. Thanks, Ari
