Scheduled auto-post messages/notifications on channels
Our teams posts routine updates/notifications on our channel (mainly posting who is the POC for the team on that day). It would be nice if we can schedule a specific message to be posted on specific timings (or even better if customizable messages for different timings) for automation.
Putting this item under review so we can investigate the scenario. Currently you can use Flow to automate posting. DRI/POC can be maintained in a list or file and message can be sent to Teams channels at designated intervals. For schedules as mentioned you might also consider using the Shifts app inside of Teams. This would provide additional features like shift swapping, activity lists for each shift etc.

It's insane to me that this is still not a feature. Please Microsoft!

Under review for almost 2 years. Seriously!
Just one more oversight from Microsoft.
I tend to catch up on information that needs to be posted after hours or on the weekends, but would really like to schedule so that they go "live" during the employees working hours. We really need this!

As a business owner, I often need to schedule messages to individuals or company announcements outside of office hours but don't want to disturb my employees as I want them to have a work life balance.
This should be as standard as Outlook's Send Later feature for email.
Please update this asap.

Come on MS, under review for more than a year! :(

I would love to see this feature because then I could pre-schedule and pre-write my reminder postings before term starts and this would ensure that things get posted when they are supposed to.

Hey Bengie, we've built something that'll help you out: https://sendlater.cemble.com
With Send Later you can schedule messages to be posted at a specific point in time. This way you can draft multiple routine notifications with different timings and have them sent to channels and group chats on your behalf. If something changes in the meantime you can even cancel message before they're sent. Everything's integrated into the regular Teams experience in form of the Send Later app.
It's almost ready, sign-up on our website and we'll notify you upon launch. In the meantime, we'd love to hear your feedback, feature requests and ideas. You can get in touch through our contact form (https://sendlater.cemble.com/#contact).

As a teacher using the platform for remote teaching/learning I would greatly this feature. I could schedule deadline reminders, class instructions, and group discussion topics when I created my lesson plans versus having to type it live and post in each breakout channel.

As a busy member of a corporate company operating in APAC it would be great to be able to schedule posts and announcements so we can schedule them to post when all offices are online to see them rather than manually organising a time to do it.
It's something that you can do inside facebook so it would be great if it was native!

This would be amazing!
This feature would change a bitty irritating task spread out over each week into a 20 minute task on a Monday morning.
I don't want to use other apps to do this
I just want to be able to do everything from Teams. Keep it simple and streamlined. Using other apps to do something as simple as schedule a post is complicate, annoying, and time consuming. It's one button. Edmodo has been doing it for almost 10 years.
Why does it seem.like everything in Teams requires 5 extra steps?
PLEASE!!! From a teacher- PLEASE!!!

PLEASE add this feature. It would save me rushing to the computer to post things for the school to all pages at the same time every day.
if it possible to add that feature it would be helpful
im a teacher in secondary school and I believe such feature will ease a lot of work for us
Please add the "schedule post" feature for announcements. As a special area teacher, it would be so helpful. I teach 6-grade levels and having to keep track of when and what I post is overwhelming. Also, it would be great if we could edit the announcement and have it carry-over to all channels!
채널이 아닌 모임에서도 자동 게시가 될 수 있도록 가능한가요?

Clearly there is interest.
As a supervisor for a remote call center team, this feature would be a live saver. I schedule many of my announcement/update emails and being able to schedule a channel post would give me the same functionality but fit into our overall communication workflow better.
From the point of view of a teacher, the ability to create an announcement when I am doing my weekly planning would be great and save a lot of time and anxiety about forgetting to post.
