send message later
I'd find it realy useful to be able to send a message later at a given date and time (e.g. like Buffer).
Often, I'd find some useful or interesting info I want to post to the team chat at off-hours, and the message could either be overlooked because the timestamp will be quite old during work hours, or I'd disturb team members who have hot keywords defined and get notified automatically.

This is a very useful feature when I don't want to disturb the other person at the wrong time.
I find it interesting that the UI is so reminiscent of Slack and yet it's missing one of its key features.
1. Really helps reduce stress levels at work both on sender and receivers' side.
2. Increases user engagement when able to target messaging at ideal times during work day.
3. Works well with remind feature especially around things like cyclical meetings and tasks

Very critical feature, it would be great to prioritize this.

Would be very helpful so that we don't message colleagues when we know they are off but rather schedule the message for later
For our operations we often alert our teams at a very specific time to depart (on the minute). Having a feature like this would allow us to queue an alert message for them and continue to work on other projects knowing it will be sent at the appropriate time instead of staring at a clock with the mouse hovering over Send.

Are you planning to develop?
Bodhi Samuel commented
YES YES YES such a valuable tool for our organization, so i can comment outside of work hours but my team gets it during work hours when its relevant

Hi, another vote for "Schedule Send" like what Slack has. Thanks!

What's the difference with https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/17591266-send-message-later ?

we have teammates around the world, being able to schedule a message to be sent later would be so helpful for collaboration

Missing the Schedule for later for when messages are sent that Slack has. Find it very useful.
Stella Coystal commented
better yet, make it recurring - e.g. at end of each week remind all team member to fill timesheet etc.

Please build this!

This would be amazing. I have a private channel (~forLater) that I post stuff like that too, but then have to remember to circle back around in the evenings. I suppose it would be easy enough to write something that does this, outside of the application, utilizing the API.

i need it so bad
Jean-Pierre Wack commented
i know a lot asynchronous systems dont do this out of principal but it would be great
It is probably the single feature that I find myself the most on slack (through an add-on)
