    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Schedule with random posting time

          Schedule plan only accepts fixed time at the moment. It would be great to have the possibility to select a time range in which the posting time is selected random (for example post once a day every workday between 2 pm and 6 pm). This would make the posts look less like automatic posted.

          • 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 :)

              • 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.

                • 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)

                  • 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

                      Please put team members back into the awesome plan for future sign-ups!

                      This was a great feature and having it removed severely diminishes the attractiveness of the awesome plan. Many clients I know would baulk at paying the business fees however the awesome plan fits their needs. I control many clients accounts from my own buffer account as a team member, so this is an essential option!

                      • Dynamic/custom UTM parameters for Google Analytics

                        The Google Analytics integration is really cool but a little bit rigid. It'd be pretty awesome if it was possible to edit the default GA UTM parameters for scheduled links? You could manually add in your custom UTM parameters and pick from a drop-down, per post. Or by adding some kind of simple tags…

                        Alternatively, UTM parameters could dynamically pulled in using data from the posts. E.g. Different options to choose from. For example, I'd like to use the page name or title in the campaign field (so that would change for nearly every post) and I'd like to set…

                        • 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!

                              • 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.

                                      On Twitter you can create a thread when posting tweets (by replying to yourself and taking your handle out of the tweet), essentially permanently linking tweets together. It would be so useful if we could do this on Buffer!

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

                                        • Add a VK.COM

                                          Dear All,
                                          For Russian cusotmers it is really crucial to add VK.COM, as one of the biggest social networks here (it's more than 60% of the market), and I am sure, that it will help you to increase the brand awareness and loyal customer base in Russia. And it will help us (the marketers in Russia) to use it in the full scale !
                                          Please support this and the blessing will cover Russia ;)))
