There are occasions when you might wish to pause your queue in order to stop posts from being published. Buffer has a built-in pause feature allowing you to do just that!
📝 Looking for the web browser version of the "Pausing your queue" article?
Tap the three horizontal lines at the top left of your screen and select the channel you'd like to pause the queue for.
Tap the Settings icon at the bottom right of your screen.
You'll see two tabs in the Settings area — settings for the channel you have selected and "Account Settings". Ensure the first tab is selected and then toggle Pause Queue on and tap Pause Queue to confirm.
You'll see a message at the top of your queue (under the Posts section), noting that it has been paused. Whenever you'd like to unpause your queue, simply tap Unpause.
- Pausing your queue is done on a per-channel basis. If you have multiple channels that you'd like to pause, you will need to pause each queue individually.
- Once your queue is unpaused, the posts you had scheduled using the “Add to Queue” option will automatically be placed into the next available time slots (in the original order in which they were scheduled). Posts that were scheduled for a specific date and time that has since passed will show as failed and will need to be rescheduled or deleted.
