Locking post on schedule

Would be great to be able to lock a post in the schedule where it has to be, so when you preview and rearrange posts, you know you cant move those ones.

    God yes please yes! Do we have any kind of timeline here? I need this so badly and have started looking into other services that can already do this—but I love Later and would love to stay with you guys! This and some kind of quick-reschedule and/or "pause for now" feature (eg for when big world events happen where I need to just stop everything without losing all my work, and/or if I just fall behind on posts for a while) are my two really-really-needs that I'm missing.

    Any idea on how long until this happens?!

    Yes! This would be really handy. Especially when planning 1-2 months in advance.

    YES! I need this. It would make the preview rearrange function so much better.

    Preview is completely useless to me until this becomes available. I can't believe it has been as long as it has and is still just a consideration. Please bump this up!

    I honestly can't believe it's been over TWO YEARS and this still hasn't been implemented. I see this as a crucial and basic feature. The preview and schedule is really rendered pretty useless without it for anyone who has regular posts that need to occur at a set day and time. So what gives I wonder? As it is I'm not looking to upgrade until this feature is implemented. Instead, I'll be rigging up some template in Affinity Photo and then transferring the grid to be scheduled once I'm happy with it. Definitely not what I want to do so I really hope the Later team gets this rolling in 2020.

    Yes! Having the ability to lock in posts for specific days and then quick schedule around them would be SO helpful!

    Yes! This would be amazing.

    Yes!! I have a few posts that regularly get shifted as my current week changes. It would be awesome to not worry about a Friday post accidentally posting on a Monday.

    Chiming in on this one again... My whole life would change if I could lock posts that are time-sensitive into their proper position on my calendar... Please, please, please make this dream a reality! :)

    I often have specific timed posts (e.g. a public holiday, weekend post or based on a campaign schedule) but less time sensitive posts around it. This feature would be a big help.

    Yes this would be useful to me as i sometimes have to build posts around one fixed posts

    Hi there, 


    I'm commenting again on this one because I can't stress enough just how much of a difference this functionality would make in my Instagram planning! Please, please, please implement this. Soon! :)

    Yes I’d love this specifically for scheduled Ads.

    Oh please, yes!!! Many of my posts are specific to days of the week, and/or time-slots. I thought I could simply plug these into their desired places, then schedule my other posts around them. Not so... Every time I add or remove a post, the entire feed shuffles, so I have to go back over my work - over, and over, and over...
