How to delete failed posts in bulk

If there's an issue with posting to one of your channels and several posts fail, there are a few options to remove the failed posts in bulk. This article will cover both options: 

  1. Clean Queue
  2. Empty Queue

Clean Queue

If you'd like to remove all of the failed posts in one of your queues, you can use Clean Queue. Clean Queue will only remove failed posts from your queue. It will not impact scheduled posts that have not failed. 

To do this:

  1. Open buffer.com.
  2. Choose Queues from the left side panel.
  3. Select the channel where you'd like to remove the failed posts from. 
  4. Click on Settings. 
  5. Click General. 
  6. Scroll down and click Clean Queue.

  1. Open buffer.com.
  2. Choose Queues from the left side panel. 
  3. Select the channel where you'd like to empty the queue. 
  4. Click on Settings.
