  1. Create iOS app for new Pablo tool!

    Pablo just launched today (or yesterday?) and is awesome! Buffer could add gas to the fire and make it even better if it was a fully functioning mobile app available on iOS, where users could create stunning images in under 30 seconds! Thanks 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!

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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!

              • 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…

                • 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)

                  • 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!

                    • google+ collections

                      Please create the option to post directly to a Google+ collection. This feature is available in Friendsplus.me which is an independent developer so it can't be too hard to do for the happiness engineers at Buffer...

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • Consolidated view of analytics for all accounts

                            A single view of my posting analytics for Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn, so I don't have to check each one separately. Consolidation would be extremely helpful for understanding the "big picture" of what's working and what isn't.

                            • Schedule GIFs

                              Now that GIFs are native on Twitter I would love an easier option to post them on buffer (aside from downloading them and uploading to buffer from Giphy which has a bigger database than the GIF Mood Board). Also would LOVE the added ability of scheduling GIFs in the Buffer dashboard and/or a way to buffer them in twitter after finding a GIF from the Giphy feature!

                                Thanks so much for the great idea, Taylor! GIFs have become a huge part of how we communicate and we’re definitely using them all the time ourselves. I think this could be a great idea for us to look into!

                                One workaround that might help if you’re up for it, would be to right-click (or control+click on a Mac) on any gif you find (for example, on Giphy). If you have the Buffer extension installed in your browser, you’ll see an option to share that GIF through Buffer. I know that’s still not quite an ideal workflow, so I’d love to hear any thoughts of what might be your ideal solution to easily sharing more GIFs through 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.

                                • 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.

                                    • Automatically send receipts to an alternative accounts email address

                                      It'd be super useful if we could automatically have invoices sent to our accounts team at an alternative accounts email address – it'd make our lives a little easier, meaning we wouldn't have to go to the billing tab each month, and our accounts team wouldn't need to get in touch with us when the payments were taken from our account.

                                      Pretty please? :o)

                                        Hey there! I’d love to help out with this! We can set a different email address for the receipts, if that’s helpful? I’m afraid we can only send the receipts to one email address. If anyone would like us to help set this up, please email hello@bufferapp.com with the email address you’d like to have receive the receipts!

                                        Thanks!

                                        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.
