        Hey there Dave, thanks so much for the great suggestion! I find myself on Houzz quite often so could definitely see a benefit to having your account available through Buffer as well. :-)

      • 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.

        • 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…

          • 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!

            • 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 :)

              • Add a "Counter" (number / functionality) to your "Rebuffer" icon so that we know how many times we have reposted...

                We all know that we should get the most mileage out of our hard-produced original content... So we use the "Rebuffer" button to repost our best content.

                However, most of us I guess would never want to recycle the same content more than say, 3 or 4 times, even for highly successful content, for fear of boring our audiences.

                So a simple counter next to your "Rebuffer" icon would be great, showing us how many times in total we have posted each piece of content. Thanks!

                • 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

                    I would love to have the ability to export my Buffer queue into a calendar in Excel or Word.

                    This would help me share my Buffer queue and use it for planning with other people in my organisation or clients, and to save me doubling up on documentation/administration.

                    It would be even more awesome if there was a way for this to be exported and emailed automatically at a set time every week/month (like Google Analytics reports).

                      Thanks so much for the amazing suggestion, June! Can definitely see how useful it would be to more easily share your Buffer queue with other people.

                      While we’re not currently working on this, this is definitely on our radar and we’re exploring some options to make Buffer more useful in these types of situations!

                      • 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.

                        • Thread Posting

                          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!

                            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)

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                  • Copying and Applying Schedules

                                    Some individuals have multiple profiles for one company (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, Google+) on their buffer account, and want posts to be scheduled and pushed out at the same time. Instead of having to create new schedules for each, which can be quite the time consuming task, you would be able to copy/duplicate a schedule and apply it to another profile.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Buffer for MS Edge

                                        With Windows 10 Microsoft have introduced Edge as their new browser. At present Buffer isn't all that stable on Edge (save windows don't close, rebuffering causes Buffer to hang etc).
                                        Would be great to have Buffer running on Edge to save me having to use two different browsers

                                        • a master switch for "show empty slots"

                                          i have 25 accounts, and perhaps will add more. the "Show empty slots" default check mark is irritating and distracting. i have to remove it every time i refresh. can there be a master setting for the default where i can set it for ALL my accounts?

                                            Thanks so much for the great suggestion, Kedar and Amanda! Makes a lot of sense to make this option available as a default for all of your accounts, so that you don’t have to keep checking or unchecking it. Will pass this along to the product team!
