Slack Message Scheduler

Natively schedule messages from your profile in Slack.

/schedule is the first app to natively schedule messages in Slack. Be respectful of team members in different timezones or use to batch your Slack time.
Your messages come from your own profile. No bots or reminders. No messages are stored outside of Slack.

Hey Product Hunt, I use Slack a lot. And I work across many timezones. One thing I've always been mindful of is messaging people at midnight (which happens a lot being in Austalia). It's not an efficient way for remote teams to work. And I recognised that people often feel obliged to answer quickly. Which means I'm not respecting their time and they're not giving their most thought out answer, or I'm working at weird times to keep the conversation going. If I could schedule messages - I could provide quick updates to people when I know they'll be using Slack already. And I could batch these future conversations to make sure I stay focused and not distracted by Giphy. Previous solutions to this problem all relied on bots, storing messages or just setting up reminders. It very recently became possible to do this all natively in Slack, and so I jumped at the opportunity to make it happen. /schedule is very new, but already being used by dozens of teams. There's lots I'll be working on in the coming weeks like better date parsing, better utilization of timezones, and better message feedback when scheduling. But as usual, it's always great to get feedback from Product Hunt!
Good job!!! ;)
Awesome 👏! I’ve been wanting something like this since I first started using Slack. It’s great for anyone, but really helps managers. Thank you! 🙏✨
awesome idea. Pricing may be a little high for teams to get started testing with it though imho
@_jacksmith I don't totally disagree with you and have already worked with a couple of charities and smaller teams on custom pricing. So if anyone is reading this and it's not feasible for their team happy to chat - josh@slackscheduler.com Definitely recognise that pricing is a bit simplistic at the moment. Product of getting things built fast and stable but still charging enough that I can invest a good amount of time in it. Once I have a bit more data I'd like to move to have different pricing options based on usage (I like @heytacoapp 's model). That being said, some larger teams are getting a great deal, and have actually had one ask to be charged more.....
I’ve wanted this so much. Thank you!
@tom_pryor haha awesome. love to know if it meets your expectations
