Important notice: This forum is closing on October 4, 2017

Thank you so much for being a part of our UserVoice community. We are currently in the process of migrating feature requests and ideas to a new platform and will be closing this forum on October 4, 2017. Until then, you can still add your ideas and votes here. We’ll be reading them all before we make the move!

It has been such a privilege to hear your ideas and benefit from your support and we’re excited to continue to build a better Buffer together. To stay up to date with us in the meantime, feel free to check out our public product roadmap.

  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!

      Hey folks,

      Wow, it has been awesome to see all the support for this feature. Thanks so much.

      I’m keen to share an update :)

      We are currently working on a new team collaboration tool for Buffer for Business, which will include the ability to create Draft posts. We’re really pumped to make collaborating on posts with your team a whole lot easier.

      If you’d like to keep track of how it’s shaping up, feel free to follow it out on our Transparent Roadmap: https://trello.com/c/4hkUzyAJ/30-draft-posts ((it’s a public Trello board)

      Thanks for all your input and patience!

      Cheers,
      Mike

    • 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.

        Hey everyone!

        A brief update on tagging coming your way. :)

        We’ve run into a couple of technical hurdles, but have started testing Facebook page-to-page tagging in the Buffer Extension. Right now it is limited to alpha testing, so we haven’t opened it up yet as a public beta just yet.

        For more details, head on over to the card on our Public Roadmap: https://trello.com/c/kFiNex0J/24-mentions-for-facebook-pages

        We’re bundling this new feature with some other upgrades to the dashboard composer, which we expect will be rolling out closer to the end of Q2 / start of Q3. Sorry about the vagueness, it is a bit of a moving target right now.

        Thanks for your stellar patience. :)

        Cheers,
        Mike

          Hey folks!

          Thanks so much for your patience here and I’m really sorry it has taken me so long to update this thread.

          We’ve mentioned a couple of new features relating to this request, and I’d love to provide an update on both.

          1) The Power Scheduler.

          The Power Scheduler is still available to use in the Buffer Extension. Thanks for all the feedback you’ve provided on it so far – it has got us thinking a lot about how to support people who want to deliver great content across different social channels. It’s likely we’ll be revisiting the Power Scheduler again at some point, but for now I don’t quite have a timeline for any major updates or changes.

          2) The Content Library

          This was a beta feature that we were trialling last year that enabled folks to repeat the same post multiple times from within the Buffer dashboard.…

        • 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.

          • Integrate with Rebrandly

            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 Tumblr integration

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

              • Suggested hashtags

                On sharing, based on post's words the (mobile or web) app can suggest some hashtags.

                  Hey everyone,

                  A long overdue update here from me here!

                  I’m excited to say we’ve started exploring hashtag suggestions in a few ways.

                  We’ve just recently introduced suggested hashtags for Twitter in the Buffer Extension, and are exploring suggested hashtags in our mobile apps too (you can try them out on iOS right now!)

                  We’ll continue to work on bringing them to other parts of Buffer too – thanks for the feedback you’ve all provided so far!

                  Cheers,
                  - Mike from Buffer

                • 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!

                    Cheers,
                    Patrik

                  • 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!

                      Thanks so much for the great idea and comments on this! I can definitely see how useful it would be to have an alternative to bit.ly for link shortening. This isn’t currently on our roadmap but is something that we’re keen to explore in more detail soon. So sorry for the long wait we’re causing, we will keep this idea updated with any progress we make here!

                      • 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!

                          • 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.

                            • Automatically post from RSS feed

                              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.

                                Hi there everyone! Super grateful for all of the suggestions and encouragement here. I’m updating this status as we’re doing an in-depth research into Feeds to see what next steps would provide the most value and this one is definitely on our radar!

                                If you’d like to get this working right away, you can connect Buffer and your favorite RSS feed using a tool like Zapier or IFTTT. I know it isn’t ideal to have to use another tool and will keep this idea updated!

                              • Multiple queues for the same profile

                                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.

                                  Be able to get suggestions to posts based on specific keywords. e.g. if my app is about making animated Gifs, I'd like to see articles with that keyword to share... not just a general topic.

                                  • 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 :)

                                      • Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn targeting (countries, languages etc.)

                                        Please implement the option to target posts sent to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Implement it like the Pinterest board selector where you'll be able to select the audience you want to reach e.g. specific countries, continents etc. and industries, functions etc.

                                        • 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.
