Scheduled announcements are announcements that you write now and Sametab publishes later on a pre-selected date.
Here’s when you want to use them:
- You’re working on a team communication at late night. You don’t want to send it right away and disturb people, but you also don’t want to forget to send it the next day.
- You have people distributed across multiple time zones and you want to make sure they receive your messages in their working hours. You schedule it to be sent on a time that’ s good for everyone.
- There’s an event on a certain date and don’t want to forget to say something before it happens.
Scheduled announcement it’s not something that you will use on a day-to-day basis, but you’ll see how it comes pretty useful once you’re using Sametab pretty extensively.
