we'd love to hear from you!
Add a draft option as opposed to forcing people to schedule it.
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.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME???1
Why?? What the actual heck. Clearly this is one of the most popular requests??
Can we get an explanation as to WHY this won't be implemented? :)
Why will this not be implemented?
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
yes pls! I want to completely transition from Planoly to Later but this is a feature that I can’t find on Later.
Really the only thing making me look around at other options.
Wow... how is this not already a feature?!?! I'm shocked lol. Seems pretty common-sensical to have a "draft" feature where teams can plan their calendar in advance.Isn't that kind of the whole point of this software? Lol
Yes, please reconsider this feature. This is really valuable to teams who are managing multiple clients and needing an elegant approval workflow.
Please reconsider. As a larger team that needs approval from the "boss" on every post, having the option to show "drafts" before they get placed on the calendar would be so very helpful.
I think by not adding this feature you really limit the ability for teams to plan content. "Notes" doesn't cut it - in fact it makes it harder by adding extra steps to planning. A huge reason my team uses this platform is for the planning "preview" that we then use to ensure a beautiful Instagram curation. If we use Notes as drafts, we can't curate in your platform. I have had posts that were still in draft form go live bc the platform also defaults to "automatic" publishing when you create a new post. Later has so many great features that really make it stand out, but the ability to use it for collaboration with clients and approval workflows is lacking. It sounds like you don't want to add a drafts feature because it will make the dashboard ugly, meanwhile you clearly have a ton of customers who would really appreciate this feature. The very users you are so concerned about in your UI excuse. Seems like your priorities are in the wrong place.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
