  1. 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.

        • buffering to a Facebook event

          I would be so awesome to schedule posts for Facebook Events!

          • 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!

              • 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.

                • 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.

                      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 :)

                        • Offline buffering

                          An offline buffer to save thoughts for tweeting while in the tube or stack up my Pocket reads from my iPod touch when not connected

                            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.

                                  • 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.

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.
