add option to schedule posts

Post by cagethedarkmaster on January 29th 2015, 4:01 pm

One issue I've noticed with getting information across in my forum is that most of the people receiving the information are in different time zones. Is it possible to add the option to schedule posts (like facebook) so staff can ensure that important information is distributed during peak hours on a consistent basis? This would be really helpful and keep everyone on task. Thank you for your time and consideration.

little confused on why you need this .. i mean if the post if made everyone sees it no matter what time it was posted so why make it post just at peek hours? whats the difference?

the difference is that I can control the timing of the post so it appears when it would be most relevant. Say I post a topic at 7 pm PST, and my site's peak hours are from 11 am PST to 3 pm PST, but activity spikes, causing the message to be overrun by other posts, and missed by my key audience. If I schedule said message to post at 11 a.m., during peak hours, it's much more likely to be noticed before activity overshadows it. Before you make the argument, yes I understand that I can assign priority to important posts, but the users tend to ignore the posts if they're constantly given that treatment. Scheduling will allow me to space posts apart so they are properly viewed and meet my quota/goals for that time. It'll also allow me to better manage my time, by creating my posts as (for example) RDA teacher ahead of time, all at once, and be able to have them spaced apart so as not to constantly barrage my viewers all at once with my week's worth of topics, without having to wait. I can just schedule the post for the future time and stagger my posts so they post within a reasonable time frame.

ok so i really count think of a way to delay the messages but i thought of some other ideas create a new category with your important post or maybe a widget that displays the post you want or mark them as a global announcement so everyone will see them on top of everything

thanks, but that's not a solution to my issue. I'd really like to have the ability to schedule posts.
