I was under the impression that the way Discourse’s digests worked was that on an individual user basis, the last visit time was recorded, and the digest would send X number of days after that point (i.e. 7 days in the case of the weekly digest). However, I’m not sure if that is still the case as, when I look at my sent emails, I’m seeing my weekly digests being sent all at once.
Unfortunately, those weekly digests are being sent at an off-hour and I think I could drive better user engagement if I were instead able to schedule the weekly digest. Is this possible?

That’s my boat, as I use Discourse mainly as my comment provider.
There seems to be some interest in being able to schedule weekly digests (I can compile a list of other forum posts if you’d like), would this be something Discourse would be interested in? (Not committing you to development.) I think it would help alleviate a lot of the demand for the functionality requested here:
