  1. Support Slack accounts in Buffer for sharing posts to Slack from Buffer

    Would love to see Slack supported as an Account Type in Buffer so that when I am sharing articles and such that I can add them to a Slack Buffer and auto-post the articles based on a schedule I set.

    • 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!

        Hi everyone! Thanks so much for all of your great ideas and suggestions on how drafts would make your lives easier. Wanted to add an update here that a few folks have mentioned in the comments. We currently support drafts in both our iOS and Android apps, which will let you save drafts on that device only. To create a draft, you can create a post like normal and then click “Cancel”. After that, you’ll be prompted to either delete the post or to save it as a draft.

        I know this isn’t an ideal solution as these drafts aren’t accessible from the web app, so sorry for the workaround there! We don’t quite have any further progress in the roadmap for drafts but are exploring a few ways of integrating this more fully within 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.

        • Integration with Xing

          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.

          • Suggested hashtags

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

            • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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)

                      • 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.

                          I need a selector to choose the name of the album where my image is going to be uploaded. The same as hootsuite does.

                          • 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!

                              Not everyone likes to pay with a credit card. Why not allow PayPal? Or partner w/ a company like PayGarden? Or accept Bitcoin?

                                  • 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!

                                    • New plan - between Awesome and Business plans.

                                      My partner and I both have individual accounts, which cost us a combined total of $20 per month and lets us control 24 accounts.

                                      We'd like to combine the accounts, but your cheapest business plan is $50, and only allows access to 25 account. So for more than double the price, we get one more account. This doesn't seem cost-effective.

                                      I'd like a new plan that allows two team members and 25 accounts.

                                        Hey folks!

                                        Thanks for all the great feedback, we really appreciate it. I’m keen to share that reviewing our plans and pricing is definitely on the agenda.

                                        I’ve also spotted that we have a few related suggestions about an ‘in between’ plan. Each of them is a little different for what they suggest to include in this new plan, but I was thinking it might be helpful to merge them all together under this suggestion to make it easier for people to keep the conversation all happening in one place. :)

                                        Cheers!
                                        Mike

                                        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 :)

                                            Hey there! This is such a huge compliment that you’d be interested in that. At the moment, we’re pretty heads down with product and support and don’t have an affiliate program. We’ll for sure be in touch if this does become a possibility. Let me know if you have any questions at all!

                                            Thanks!
