replace the image in a scheduled post

I'd like to be able to replace the image in a scheduled post. When I have an image update and i have to copy and past the caption and then delete and reschedule the post.

    We will look at ways of replacing media in scheduled posts that are consistent with the user experience you expect from Later.

    I am in the trail version and was happily using it. Until... I had to copy paste various posts over several SM channels, all because I wanted to change the text in a photo I created. Really places doubts over me becoming an actual client, as this is guaranteed to cost me a lot of time and will lead me to make mistakes in the end.

    Indeed: must have IMO.

    This is 100% absolutely necessary - not even a "nice to have" feature. I've never understood why we've never been able to swap out photos, delete photos, etc. in posts without deleting the entire post and starting over. It is SO FRUSTRATING. I've been using Later for years and this issue drives me absolutely bonkers every. single. day. It's ridiculous!

    This needs to be done! it's a fail for the app not having this :/

    Admin would you either give us an update on this issue or comment as to why it has been on the books since 2017. Is there a team working on this at all? Or is still in discussion mode at Later? It is a massive waste of time to re-do posts.

    Just signed up and ran right into this issue. For a time saving product, its hard this basic function isn't available. This has been on your board since 2017! You have over 500 people who looked for the forum and took the time to vote or comment and 11 merged ideas. Your user community is howling to have this done.

    Please update the admin response with timeline for this to be fixed.

    This is one of the most important things to update... tired of 're-doing' my posts (& copy paste texts) because cant add/delete image in the scheduled post...

    this is the worst thing in Later. I update a picture and, surprise, I have to redo the post from scratch, re-insert all 20 tags manually. This sucks. This extremely sucks.

    Wow, this is still an issue in 2021. At least make it clear in your FAQs to users.

    Please update this! It wastes too much time recreating a new post just to update photos

    This feature request was submitted in 2017 and still not implemented? I just joined later and this is a little discouraging when other apps have had this figured out for a while now.

    Agree, it's super annoying to realise you want to change the image and have to delete and start over.

    Please! I'm about to redo two post images because a detail was changed and I have to redo them for all four platforms - that's 8 posts for one change! Also, this would be very useful for prescheduling with placeholder images and changing the images later. Thanks!

    I also cannot believe that this isn't possible yet. What's the timeline to be able to do this?

    I actually can't believe that this isn't possible. What's the timeline to be able to do this?

    If you want to change a link or an image and its description, you have to delete the scheduled post, redo it and schedule again.
