  1. The ability to switch user accounts without logging out.

    In the same way that you can access different accounts in google on the web and with twitter inside their app. As I manage two accounts, my own and another company and I need to keep them separate, it would be awesome if we could just switch accounts instead of having to log-out and then back-in again. Especially as I have 2-step loving enabled on of the accounts.

      Hi Michael, thanks so much for the really great suggestion here! We’ve started looking at this process again very recently and are exploring some ideas to make it much easier to manage multiple accounts or businesses in Buffer. Will be sure to keep this idea updated if we move further along with anything!

    • Incorporate a pause option for scheduled posts.

      Right now, I have to cancel a post in order to pause it. But then I lose the layout of the actual post that I had setup. See example: https://cloudup.com/c8YjEhFDCaM Add a pause option.

        Hi there,

        Thanks so much for the amazing suggestions and support here! Definitely can see how valuable it would be to quickly pause your posting schedule without losing your posts or the order that they’re in.

        At the moment our recommended method for pausing your schedule is by going to the Schedule tab and then clicking on the day or days that you’d like to pause posting. Then, when you’re ready to resume, just click on the days in your schedule again to re-activate them. (Quick note: this currently only works for posts in your regular queue and won’t affect any posts that were custom scheduled for a specific time.)

        I know this workaround isn’t ideal at all and we’re currently exploring a few ways that we can make this easier. Would love to hear any ideas you might have for this or how you’d use a pause feature within…

          Hey folks!

          Thanks so much for your patience here and I’m really sorry it has taken me so long to update this thread.

          We’ve mentioned a couple of new features relating to this request, and I’d love to provide an update on both.

          1) The Power Scheduler.

          The Power Scheduler is still available to use in the Buffer Extension. Thanks for all the feedback you’ve provided on it so far – it has got us thinking a lot about how to support people who want to deliver great content across different social channels. It’s likely we’ll be revisiting the Power Scheduler again at some point, but for now I don’t quite have a timeline for any major updates or changes.

          2) The Content Library

          This was a beta feature that we were trialling last year that enabled folks to repeat the same post multiple times from within the Buffer dashboard.…

        • Automatically post from RSS feed

          Would love to be able to have the RSS feed function automatically queue up your articles/blog posts to your social media feed, ideally via a configurable template. (Eg: Post title, shortened URL, hashtag). Functionality would be similar to the Revive Old Post plugin for WP.

            Hi there everyone! Super grateful for all of the suggestions and encouragement here. I’m updating this status as we’re doing an in-depth research into Feeds to see what next steps would provide the most value and this one is definitely on our radar!

            If you’d like to get this working right away, you can connect Buffer and your favorite RSS feed using a tool like Zapier or IFTTT. I know it isn’t ideal to have to use another tool and will keep this idea updated!

          • Preview Posts on social sites

            ability to preview what a post would look like on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, G+ etc...

            • Sort Analytics by Clicks, Potential Views, Favorites, Retweets and Engagements for iPhone & Android

              From a marketer and social media strategist point of view, it would be really handy to have such a feature. Especially for iPhone and Android as I'm always on the go and would love to be able to sort my analytics to see what tweets have the most engagements.

              Would be a real time saver for marketers and social media strategists and for anyone wanting to sort their Analytics.

              • Allow for Retweet Comments

                Twitter has added a comment feature for retweets allowing you to add an up to 140-character comment in addition to the whole original tweet. This means you don't have to try to squeeze your commentary in before the RT. However, I don't see that Buffer allows this through its interface, at least yet. I would love to see this functionality added.

                • Add a simple grid + Smart Guides

                  Pablo allows to insert some interesting visual and text elements into a well proportioned canvas... but it don't helps the (probably) style-perception-lack SM manager to well distributes all of them on that canvas.
                  So, how to solve that problem easily?
                  By adding a simple 9-blocks grid.
                  How to solve that problem and fill Pablo with unicorns?
                  By adding that grid and allow all the floating elements to auto-align to a middle horizontal and a middle vertical guides - just like balsamiq, and adobe illustrator, for example.

                  My two cents ;)

                    • PAGINATION IN ANALYTICS

                      There is a strong need to do pagination in the analytics. Whenever i try to find some old scheduled post it always starts to hang and it becomes so hard to find old posts. So if there will be pagination in analytics according to date/month/year. Then it will be very easy for us t find.

                      Thanks!

                        Wow, thanks so much for the great suggestion here and for adding your support! Can definitely see how pagination might help.

                        We’re exploring a few ideas here and I’d love to chat with you about how you do this process currently, if you might have a moment you can reply directly to this email. Thanks so much! :)
