  1. Empty-buffer notifications should be selectable per channel

    Submitting this on behalf of one of our amazing customers :)

    -----

    Could empty-buffer notifications be set on a per-channel basis? I send all my tweets to app.net and google. As a result I think I get four emails every time I run out of tweets. I'd much rather only know when my twitter buffer runs dry...

    • Plan ahead

      It would be awesome to see the furthest date that you have a post scheduled so you could plan ahead while you are in context view.

      • Indexed Search of All Queued and Posted Content

        [Leaving this comment at the behest of Danny from Customer Support who was very responsive to my initial inquiry :-)]

        It would be great if all posts (queued and posted) were indexed to be searched on demand.

        Sometimes I can't quite remember if I've already queued or posted something. I use CTRL+F as a workaround, but it's hit or miss since many posts are hidden until scrolled to.

        Thanks,
        Paul

        • Pin the Composer window 'open' when expanded.

          It would be great to have the option to 'pin' the composer to the dashboard in an 'open' state. This would be beneficial as the user composes an update and needs to navigate somewhere else on the Buffer dashboard to gather additional information or check on updates that have already been added to the queue.

          • Rebuffer from MY profile Tweets

            Add a way to rebuffer my own tweets.

            As in adding a new column in the UI that displays my entire timeline (of MY twitter profile, not the regular Twitter Timeline). Then I can pick and choose tweets to be rebuffered and sent again.

            The current rebuffer option in Analytics doesn't show all of my profile tweets, only ones sent by Buffer. We have tweets prior Buffer and also others we don't send through Buffer sometimes.

            • Retry a buffer post after the buffer was unsuccessful from within Twitter

              When on the Twitter website and using the Chrome extension, if I try to buffer a new tweet but my queue is full, it is not possible to retry the queue or "share now". The dialog is greyed out and I can't even close it. The only way to retry is to copy the text and refresh the page.

                      • Queued number on currently selected profile please, number on left and larger

                        Please may we have queued number on currently selected profile tab. And having it on the left of tab, and bigger would be awesome!

                        I keep two browsers open: one for personal, one for work. This would mean I could ALWAYS see when I need to write more posts, even if I'm busy doing personal stuff

                          • Analytics / Insights improvement - averages, default time frames, off-piste and specific 'snapshots'

                            Firstly I'm a product marketing manager in the tech space so this is my job - so if these ideas come across as pernickety it is not meant that way. It comes from loving both Twitter and Buffer. In the analytics/ insights section I'd like to see the following.....

                            1. Twitter is 'the bar of social media' where you play the long game. You return often and communicate often but it is only over longer periods of time where genuine deeper relationships are developed. Consequently my default status on twitter is MONTHS and AVERAGES. Your insights page default is set…

                                    • Show how many items are in queues currently when posting a new update

                                      This is an idea from @knowledgepowers:

                                      "'One more post in your Buffer' is ambiguous, could be understood as 'only 1 left in queue'. But in this message it actually would be good to have a notification how many items are in queues currently."

                                        I saw Imgur is now a social network, you can now have followers and following ! Might be good to have an API to schedule post on Imgur, nope ?

                                        • Grab Your Camera. Spring Migration is Happening Now!

                                          Spring is in the air! That means hundreds of migrating birds are heading north across the Gulf from Central and South America and Galveston is one of their first stops.

                                          If you're a bird-watcher or nature photographer, you may already know that the Galveston FeatherFest Birding and Nature Photo Festival is coming up April 6-9. Leading up to the festival, photographers are invited to submit images of wild birds taken in Galveston and surrounding counties. Contest details are here.
