Do you love the work chatting platform Slack? Well, you'll be happy to hear that the team behind the rising star in remote work collaboration has been adding a bunch of new features to its offering as of late. The newest is actually courtesy of a third-party app, which adds in the ability to schedule your Slack messages.
Although scheduling may seem like a small addition to Slack, anyone who currently uses the platform knows that you can sometimes send a message in a channel and it then gets lost among a sea of other updates (or GIFs). Or you're working with people across different time-zones and always find it tricky to send a message when it's most appropriate for everyone. Thanks to Schedul, you now have way more control over who sees your messages and when they see them. It's a simple scheduling tool that allows you to set a specific time for your messages, as well as specific channels.
Schedul also works by learning the activity of your Slack channels, so you can actually tell it to post your message at the time it thinks will be best with 'autoschedule', which is often when most people are online but there are gaps in the conversation.
