  1. Check contributions from Team members for the whole Group of SM accounts

    Right now if I need to look into my teams contribution, I need to go into each account separately and approve the post.

    It would be a great time saver if we can see all the contributions from team members by selecting on the group.

    So we select the ABC Company group which has all the SM accounts associated to that company. Click the contributions tab and approve posts.

    Rather than clicking on individual accounts and approving posts.

    • Nickname accounts

      I'd love to label my accounts with nicknames so that I don't get confused by similar names/profile pics.

        Hi there! Thanks so much for suggesting this, I can definitely see how useful it would be to be able to nickname your accounts. I think we’ll be looking into this very soon, really appreciate the nudge here!

      • Global Calendar View

        The calendar view is nice. We think it would be even better if we could see all our posts across all profiles in one view. This would make spotting overlaps or out-of-sync issues much easier.

        • Upload thumbnail for video upload

          The new video upload feature is great! Thumbnails are generated quickly, and when videos are long, there are plenty of options to choose from.

          However, when videos are short (as is the nature with much of native video), very few thumbnails are generated, giving the poster very little choice.

          In 90% of cases, I am not satisfied with the thumbnails, and I leave Buffer and to post directly to the social platform.

          Please allow for thumbnail uploads after auto-generated thumbnails are created for uploaded videos.

          A compromise would be to create more thumbnails for shorter videos, or to give a…

          • I'd like a file upload option - load a CSV or spreadsheet of content in.

            Similar to the way Hootsuite has a CSV import option, I'd like a Buffer upload option.

            • Custom labeling

              Custom color coded labeling to categorize posts in the event you want x number of marketing related posts, x number of pictures, x number of quotes. You could label them with a color to visually see your whole week or month at a time to assess balance and how well you are following your social media plan.

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

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

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

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                              For companies that frequently want the same hash tag(s) appended to posts, it would be nice to predefine them then have them automatically added.

                              • 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.

                                • Add recurring scheduling

                                  Many Twitter profiles know that it's OK to repeat same tweets when spaced right in time.

                                  As such, I'd like to see a way to set a recurring scheduler that I'm able to set with:
                                  * Specific spacing period (every X hours, days, months)
                                  * Time of posting (e.g. at 9pm on due day.)
                                  * or Timeframe of posting (like any random time from 7pm to 11pm)

                                  This helps with marketing campaigns and sales. If you have a website, store or good tips, you'd want you new followed to know and followers to remember. People forget.

                                    • 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.

                                        Besides a LinkedIn company page it would be useful to be able to connect also a LinkedIn Group to a Buffer account.

                                          Similar to Imgur where you can copy and image and then paste it to upload.
