Save Draft Instead of Having to Schedule

Add a draft option as opposed to forcing people to schedule it.

    This is a basic feature of most social media platforms. I had just started using Later but now may have to go to another platform because of this. So disappointing because the rest of the platform is great.

    Can we get an explanation as to WHY this won't be implemented?

    pretty shocked this isn't a feature. I've just signed up for a subscription, but will be looking at requesting a refund because of this.

    Doing a trial of Later with our team and not having draft posts as an option is creating some internal challenges. I love this platform but will likely be out-voted due to missing this crucial component.

    Guys you are crazy for not implementing this simple fucking thing. Why can you not just do it and actually use this beneficial feed back from YOUR PAYING community.

    Still can't believe they won't implement this. Loomly now has Instagram automatic publishing so I'm heavily considering going back because of the workflow issues Later causes and all the extra time and stress their platform causes.

    I agree with all of these comments. I like to write down my thoughts and come back to it, without accidentally having it publish before I am ready. The calendar is a perfect place to plan ideas to remind users to post about something, sometimes months in advance.

    another great idea, why was this denied?

    I would like to have this option too. It's frustrating that it's not available because it makes life so much easier.

    I am researching which app I want to use for planning and scheduling posts. This missing feature has just taken later out of the running. This is an essential feature. Crazy that you won't implement it.

    To see that Later has outright said that (among other things desperately needed by this platform) they will not implement a drafts feature, I’ll be moving to another system. So many basic functions that are missing from this. I’ll be cancelling my subscription and moving elsewhere.

    Absolutely ridiculous to not impliment this. Your competetors offer it, and it is an essential part of the job for the majority of folks who are your customers/end users.

    I’m really surprised that with all the requests for this feature (that you’ve just merged), you’re STILL not going to implement this.

    With both and Canva now having their own scheduling tools I would think you would be looking to improve features, not ignore requests.

    seriously just subscribed to your software but pretty much this knocks you out of the game. i like to preplan content with photos. your competitors are doing this. reconsider.

    What??? Why will you not implement? This doesn't seem hard to do? Planoly has this feature

  • Nettie Solon commented

    yes pls! I want to completely transition from Planoly to Later but this is a feature that I can’t find on Later.
