Slack has become one of the most important social media platforms among remote workers, and its importance has increased the spread of remote work.
Through the platform, you can schedule messages to be sent later to users at any time you wish, and this is suitable for remote workers in different time zones.
Steps to schedule messages in Slack
You can schedule messages by following these steps:
- Head over to the Slack app you’re using, and tap the compose messages button.
- After that, type the message you want, and when you are finished, press the arrow button at the bottom of the message box.
- You can then type in the date and time you want the message to be sent.
You can modify the message scheduling options by clicking on the message with the right mouse button and modifying it as you wish.
You can schedule messages via the mobile app by following the same steps, but you need to press the send button for a long time until you see the options for scheduling the message.
You can also view and access all scheduled messages easily by clicking on the option to view all scheduled messages in front of you in the application.
You can edit any scheduled message you have before sending it, so you must make sure that the message is appropriate for what you want to send before sending it.
Competition between remote work platforms
Companies started interested in remote work platforms and communication between employees after the beginning of the Corona crisis, as everyone started working remotely.
Slack is a direct competitor to Microsoft Teams and has a slightly larger fan base than Microsoft.
Therefore, Microsoft began to pay a lot of attention to the Tims platform, and the company relied on it to be the main communication platform in Windows 11.
And you can integrate any platform you want with Slack to use directly from within it and connect it with your team.
Slack includes a set of tools for the remote work platform such as Google Drive, Zoom or Trello to schedule work and distribute jobs to the work team.
