How to delete posts in bulk in the Buffer mobile app

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 is designed to help users with the Buffer mobile app. All instructions and screenshots are taken from the iOS app, and the steps on Android are the same. You can find the desktop version of this article here.

  2. Tap the social channel where you'd like to remove the failed posts. 
  3. Tap Settings in the bottom right corner of the app.
