  1. The ability to cancel a regular Buffer posting time for a particular platform. Just a one-time cancellation.

    The ability to cancel a regular Buffer posting time for a particular platform. Just a one-time cancellation. Reason: when we natively upload a video to Facebook and tag a company in the post, we want to cancel that post time for Facebook, but keep it for the other platforms. This happens several times a week, so our workaround is to keep the noon spot free (no scheduled Buffer post), and then we natively upload to Facebook and manually post custom posts through Buffer on G+ & Twitter. It's a pain.

    • Create Pocket Digital Magazine

      Would love a way to be able to collect and select the best items I have shared into a digital magazine I can share, index by tags.

      • Adding hot buttons for hashtags & quotes

        I'd love to see hot buttons added for hashtags and quotes. Quick and easy access on the same code line as @ usernames appear when tagging someone. Pretty sure everyone will be thankful!

        • schedule post from email

          When buffering from email using @now sends it now, and if not it is added to your queue.

          I would love a way to schedule it form an email (for example something like "@schedule 8/20/2014 3:42am")

          • Buffer native Facebook videos and have them post as native Facebook videos

            Not as a link to the video. Sometimes the video ends up populating, but sometimes not - and when it doesn't, the link often looks random and unrelated to the video content.

            • Copy Buffer URL to clipboard in Chrome extension

              It would be nice to have the ability to copy the buffer URL to your clipboard when adding a new item with the chrome extension. Similar to how bitly does this with their bitlink bookmark tool and their chrome extension.

                • Allow access to Non-Camera Role image folders aka synced folders from iTunes.

                  Allow access to other image folders in iOS. For instance, buffer can only access camera roll but not folders that are being synced via iTunes. Instagram is able to access them and with that new addition I can't upload images from said folders being synced via iTunes or unless I duplicate that photo.

                    • Optimal time window

                      Adding the option to set some kind of start and end times while using the optimal schedule tool. An optimal time of 1:14 am post isn't practical when we're sleeping and can't complete a scheduled Instagram buffer manually.

                      Instead of a 24-hour window for it to choose from, optimal post times would start at a selected time. For example, start at 7:00 am and end at 10:00 pm.

                      • Don't be alarmed by snakes on the beach in Galveston Capital Tourism and Marketing

                        GALVESTON, Texas -- It’s that time of year again: rattlesnake season in Galveston.

                        The reptiles are once again making an appearance on the island. Beachgoers are warned not to trek through the dunes.

                        The rattlesnakes will start to emerge from their daytime hiding spots as the sun starts setting. Only one person was bitten by a rattlesnake last year, but nonetheless, it pays to be cautious.

                        “With a rattlesnake, he bites you, he’s got to pump those jaws. I got hit once in my leg with those jaws and that when he’s injecting,” said Hal Newsom with Animal Control Wildlife.

                        • 'Failure to Post' Notifications

                          Please create the ability for your program to notify me when a post fails to go through. Why it will let me know so many other things, but not notify me that my schedule is NOT happening as expected, is a mystery to me. This is the critical information I need, not to be told every time my queue is empty.

                            would love to see an RSS feed that we could use to keep track of what's upcoming. we have two people updating a single account independently of each other, so would be helpful to make sure we're not double posting.

                            • Permit sign-in with OpenID

                              My organisation uses OpenID to grant access to certain key tools internally & externally.

                              It'd be great if we could use this with Buffer as it would provide an additional mechanism to grant/revoke access to corporate social media accounts.

                                • Different Icons for Facebook Pages vs Profiles

                                  I use the same profile photo for my Facebook page and profile. In HootSuite, this wasn't a problem because they use different icons for Facebook pages and profiles, but in Buffer, the icon is the same, so it is impossible to differentiate. Please add some kind of differentiator to the icon so that we know when we are selecting a FB page vs a profile.

                                  • When adding LinkedIn Pages, have them separated from Groups so that they are easier to find.

                                    When adding LinkedIn company pages to the dashboard we are presented with a page full of groups and pages - and when there are a lot of groups it's quite tricky to find the Pages amongst them. It would be great to have groups and pages separated out so that they can be added more easily?

                                    • Allow photos to have url invoked on clicking

                                      When you post directly on FB from a url, you get the link AND the photo itself all bring up the url in question. By contrast, buffer posts containing a photo do not bring up the url when the photo is clicked on. This means people clicking on the photo just get a larger version of the photo. It would be so much better if the photo was clickable too.. more people would end up at your intended external url.

                                        • Drag and drop any image, capture any website

                                          Let me drag and drop any image from any website to the 'add image' for a post. Allows me to quickly search google for relevant images (or go to relevant websites) and drag the images across. For example, if I'm recommending a product let me drag the product image from a website to buffer.
