Topic Timer Enhancements


When setting a topic timer, there are a few enhancements that I believe would make it even better:


  1. When selecting a custom time, to have a popup window that makes it easy to select a time, in a process parallel to picking the date on the calendar.
  2. After selecting the time, for that to appear in the notification: “This topic will be published to [category] in 4 days at 9am.”
  3. For the notification to also specify the time zone. “9am Eastern Standard Time”

Thank you for your consideration.


Why? This is local to your time zone, so the time entered is always “correct” from your perspective.

Hi, fair question.

For the first time I did it, the time itself doesn’t appear in the notification, so I was hesitant/unsure that it was set properly. Then, I wondered what time zone the system would use for the topic timer. But, it all worked out.

In general, I think the time zone feature would be magic for doing announcements/posts in our global community. If I want to get something out for our team in Oxford at the start of their workday, knowing that I have it configured for 8am BST adds clarity and confidence to the workflow.
