Can I post different replies on certain schedules?

Wow this is really cool - I wish I’d come across this earlier! I’m grateful it’s included on business plan.

Can it post different replies on a certain schedule? It seems not yet though, from what I see in the description.

For the purpose i’m thinking of:

We have icebreakers and other fun prompts for public topics. What we currently do is very manual:

  • we have a private topic by leaders & staff, where we reply with different icebreaker prompts
  • each day, when it’s time to choose an icebreaker, we change the timestamp of the topic to the current time
  • then we split out the relevant post and move it to the public Icebreaker topic, and @mention the icebreaker group on our community

This is the same process for several community topics and events that we have.

It would be nice if we could have a way to submit a list of posts to be automatically posted as replies on another topic, on a recurring basis (e.g. daily).

Let me know if this is possible with this automation plugin! If not, I’d like to add as a feature request — the ability to schedule a list of replies to a topic in some way.

Edit: I just noticed the new setup for official plugins on Meta. I can create a new feature request / support topic depending on what fits, or also feel free to move this reply to the right category.

It looks like our use case is covered! Discourse Team set up the plugin on our forum since it was missing.

I just had to make new automations to schedule different replies, rather than reuse the same one.
