Option for scheduled replies

Hi all,

Would it be somehow possible to use “scheduled” replies, similar to how you can do this in Gmail?

We use the forum for support and sometimes it could be useful to delay a reply.

Is it technically possible to create a plugin for this perhaps?



It is easy to do currently with the Discourse API.

I’d like our moderators to be able to do this from the frontend though. Something like this:


Post it in a different category, one that nobody can see – such as the staff category that comes with Discourse by default – and then issue a topic timer via the admin wrench on the topic to publish it to a different category.


Hi Jeff,

Thanks, that’s something we can try for now. It still takes a couple of clicks to do this though. Is it technically possible to create a scheduled reply button like in my screenshot? If so, I know I can ask a developer to dive into it.
