Need the ability to schedule messages to post. Sometimes, I need to post a message on a specific day, every Monday for example, or at a specific time. There is no simple way to do this
Any progress on this request?
Yes, this feature is in development and targeted for GA March/April
Is there some progress with this item?
This would be a great feature to have.
Same need here
Any update on timeline for delivery?
Ditto on what others have said below. We are a global company and my team is in many timezones.
I see this is planned. Any insight into the timeline? I would LOVE a scheduled messages option. I often find myself having to set some reminder elsewhere to remember to send the draft I left so as not to disturb the other person off hours. Or to sequence requests when there may be an immediate one and one that could come days later, but sending both at once caused the person to miss one.
Often, I find myself in a situation where I have a question to ask a colleague who is in a different time zone. However, I am hesitant to reach out because I don't want to disturb them and potentially wake them up at 3:00 am. While email is an option, many people prefer using Webex for quick queries. It would be extremely helpful if there was a way to schedule the delivery of Webex messages, ensuring that they reach the recipient at a more suitable time.
This would allows our user's to send out messages at a designated time. As overnight shift works. They would like the ability to send out low-priority messages in spaces at a later time to their daytime team without waking the team up.
Would be especially useful so as not to inconvenience someone who is currently set 'Do Not Disturb'
Appdynamics (now a BU of Cisco) used Slack and is now moving to Webex mandatorily. I understand the business move but I wish we did not have to lose certain advantages when moving away from our competitor to our very own product.1. Scheduling personal messages: Our people are spread across timezones and geographies and having the ability to schedule a message so we can remind someone about something vital/checklist task in THEIR timezone is a MASSIVE advantage that Slack has always given us. I was heartbroken to see that this is no longer going to be a possible option using Webex. PLEASE consider adding this feature because almost all companies have people across the globe these days. 2. Recurring automated reminders: In addition, the ability to schedule recurring messages is also great from a management perspective , especially if one handles scrums , retros etc. This is also a feature Slack offers and I would love to see in Webex!
This would be a fantastic addition. My wife's company uses Slack with a team across multiple time zones. The difference on when we receive messages makes a huge difference in our feelings of stress. As a manager, it's made me extremely cognizant of when I message and how I ask, but I'd be way more efficient if I could schedule delivery instead of trying to remember everything I need to send when the time arrives.
Given hybrid work and disburse teams (various time zones), this request would add to productivity.
This is a great feature that Slack already has!
would like a one time schedule, e.g., don't want to bother someone off hours but I also don't want to forget to send the message in the morning or scheduled send when I need a recurring message/reminder to go out.
