Schedule Send for Teams Chat

Microsoft Teams, Microsoft 365 Experts

From Microsoft Corporation
Technical Bulletin: MC427758 · Published Sep 8, 2022

Message Summary

As remote teams become more common and spread across multiple time zones, Teams is introducing the schedule send feature that allows users to schedule chat messages to be delivered in the future. With this feature, we can help build better work-life balance and support flexible schedules by scheduling chat messages so that they only deliver during our peer’s work hours. Users can schedule messages to be delivered both on desktop and mobile. Additionally, all scheduled messages can be edit and delete before they are delivered. 

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88281

When this will happen:

Production: will begin rolling out in late September and we are expected to complete roll out by mid October.

GCC: roll out will start in late October and complete by late November.

GCCH: roll out will start in late November and complete by late December.

DoD: roll out will start in late January and complete by late February.

How this will affect your organization:

All users within your organization will be allowed to schedule chat messages. All scheduled messages can only be delivered no more than 7 days in the future and cannot be flagged as urgent or important. Inline images and attached files will only be accessible by others in the chat once the message has been delivered. 

Desktop: Right click on the send button to access the scheduling menu and select a date and time within 7 days from now:
