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.
