    Agree completely. I'm in the same time zone as my team but keep all hours, so this feature in Teams would be ideal for those "FYI" type posts I don't want them getting out of bed to read. There are working hours where you can mute notifications, but that's not enough - you want to ping them when you can grab their attention. Here's an idea to support this: For both posts (channels) and DMs (chats) you could have a separate tab for scheduled posts/chats. Once the scheduled post/chat has reached its schedule target it simply becomes a post or chat within the "main" tab. This would feather the idea of time delayed post into the current workflow of Teams where there's a "living chat" going on in a primary tab. The scheduling of these delayed posts poses some interesting design questions. This could be a hard-coded date/time w/timezone support (either force my time zone or do it in their time zone) OR an offset from when they say they "start their day." This is also a useful, built-in way to take the wise approach during heated interactions - set your thoughts in a queue and review after you cool down. Ha! Seems like a solid add request here. Side note: The recipient should always know the chat came from a scheduled request or a live person. I could see the IT Crowd coding a bot to auto-respond to replies with "Have you tried turning it on and off again?" with nobody the wiser. ;)
