  1. Multiple Buffer Accounts

    I would love a feature (it kills me to say take an existing idea) similar to Twitter where you can link multiple Buffer accounts (say, a personal account and a Business account) that you can flip between easily both within the app and within the extensions.

    • Automatic message shortening for Twitter while keeping the full message length for Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.

      When posting to multiple accounts including Twitter, instead of refusing to queue if the message exceeds Twitter's tweet length, provide the option to automatically shorten the message for Twitter while keeping the full message for Facebook, etc.

      • Be able to add suggested content to all streams simultaneously

        Right now, while a manually added post is queued to all streams, suggested content and those from feeds have to be added to each stream individually.

        A button on the left side of the interface, above the streams that is marked "Select All Streams" would then allow any of these other sections to share with all of them simultaneously.

        • Multiple images for google plus and facebook posts

          I think it's quite a basic feature (but I guess on the programming side it's not that basic), to have the possibility to post multiple pictures on both platforms. Will this possible anytime soon?

          • Buffer Scheduling

            Pin/Fix a post to specific date and time while remaining within the buffer schedule. For example, Fix a post to Christmas Day but when additional posts are added to the queue, they do not fall on Christmas day because that slot is already taken by the fixed post.

              Thanks so much for the amazing suggestions and comments here! Really sorry about the long delay in getting to this, I could definitely see how useful it would be to pin posts to specific times in your schedule. :)

              Excited to share that we’re working on a way to make this possible and are hoping to get something in your hands really soon!

            • 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.

              • Nickname accounts

                I'd love to label my accounts with nicknames so that I don't get confused by similar names/profile pics.

                  • Add comments to posts waiting for approval (and a rejection button with comments)

                    our current process is the content marketer drafts the message before sending to me for approval. is there functionality within buffer for me to add feedback as comments within buffer or rejecting the message so that the content marketer can rework it? this is ideal rather than me deleting the entry entirely

                      Thanks so much for the great suggestion! This is something that we’ve heard quite a bit of and I’m excited to share that we’ve started working on a method of making this possible within Buffer.

                      I’ll keep this idea updated as we make progress, currently we’re sketching out initial designs and making sure that this works smoothly for managers and contributors.

                    • Add goo.gl link shortener using my Google account

                      Google shortener can be added to the list of link shorteners, and if the user authorizes access to their Google account, all goo.gl short links can be saved into the account. This can be done via OAuth, thus protecting user's private data.

                        It would be great to be able to tag users in images via Buffer like you can on Twitter.

                          • Social Media feeds (not only RSS)

                            It would be great to be able to create feeds for social media accounts that we are interested in (i.e. people/organisations we follow and are most likely to be retweeting). We could also have the option to save a search on a specific keyword and make it into a feed (i.e. show in a feed all tweets with the word #buffer in it).

                            • Provide an option for adding text alternatives, such as title and long description, to tweeted images

                              When we share images without meaningful text alternatives, these images will not be accessible to our followers with visual impairments.

                              Providing text alternatives for non-text content is one of the most important accessibility requirements, but it is not always possible - or practical - to describe an image within a tweet. As far as we are aware, Easy Chirp is the only app that makes it easy to attach both title and description to tweeted images without affecting the character count (http://www.easychirp.com/).

                              Accessibility is a legal requirement for many government departments and educational institutions, so adding this option…

                                  have you guys thought about adding custom link shortener support directly through buffer? I don't want to deal with bit.ly. the issue with bitly is they offer a free version for individuals, and then a paid option for enterprise that is $1000 a month.

                                      • Hide Curated URL Text When Sharing To Channels With Thumbnails (Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, etc)

                                        Buffer handles sharing to Twitter just fine where the URL is the primary focus. But when we "Add" curated content to a "long form" social media channel such as Facebook/Google/LinkedIn, that URL should be hidden because a thumbnail is being generated. Hootsuite does this right. I know that Buffer may be wishing to keep their branding in the URLs visible - but an App stamp already shows Facebook etc - and the URL is obnoxious when it's not wanted. Please clean these up.

                                        • Windows 10/Windows Edge PlugIn and App

                                          With Chrome really playing up by using Processor speeds and crashing occassionally on Windows 10, when can we see Buffer adding Apps (for all their products) in Windows Store and also create a Plug-In for the Edge browser?
