Schedule an update/poll/assignment/event

One feature I really miss from Edmodo is the ability to schedule posts.

When planning a lesson I often want to make (for example) the answers to their homework available the day after the lesson. Often I forget.
If I could schedule this post when I'm planning the lesson, that would be much better.

    I would also like to be able to do this. This would be a great improvement.

    I was just about to post something about this! I'm starting to do flipped lessons and it would be great if I could schedule my updates in advance. I want to make sure they get up there, of course, but I don't want to post them too early so kids get confused.

    From an admin's POV, the ability to schedule announcements would be huge. In order not to disturb students in class, I have to remember to post between classes or at the beginning/end of the day. I often get going on other projects and miss posting times. Bring on the ability to schedule posts!

    Yes- I'm exploring Schoology in order to determine whether or not to switch from Edmodo. This feature is a dealbreaker...

    This is a must have feature! The option exists to make a folder 'available after start date'. Can't this feature be applied to updates, etc?

    I would also love to be able to schedule a post or an update to come out. Please add this feature!

    This is apparently one of the few features Edmodo has but Schoology doesn't. Very disappointing.

    Very disappointed that this feature isn't available, since I see my classes in block scheduling. Would like to post the assignment all at once, but have them show up the day of the class.

    Same here: being able to schedule a post/update is a MUST and I truly hope that you guys will develop it in the coming weeks!

    Ditto everyone else! This is could be a deal-breaker in our decision to either stick with schoology or go back to edmodo!

    This is a much needed feature, Schoology! Please add it ASAP!

    Edmodo has this function and I love it so much, and miss it after switching from Edmodo to Schoology. I would love to have this added , as it is the only thing that makes Edmodo more desirable than Schoology, IMO.

    I agree with everyone else. Is there a plan to add this feature in the (near) feature?

    I would also like this feature! I often schedule posts in advance with Facebook and our school district's electronic gradebook, and it would be great to have the ability to plan in advance. Any updates as to whether or not this is being looked into?

    This would really help me make my class more consistent, as occasionally I forget to post the daily agenda in my updates each morning. I feel like this might not be how the Schoology Gods envisioned updates being used, but I like to keep a running record of what we do each day and I would be more consistent with this if I could schedule all the updates for a given week ahead of time, for example.

    I miss this feature so much from Edmodo! It would be nice to schedule a few important reminders at the beginning of a unit. This has to be happening soon, right?

    I would greatly appreciate this functionality as well. It's time consuming to draft a post and then remember to post it at a specific date/time.

    Yes please! This would be an awesome addition. I used Edmodo in the past and it was a great feature, so I'm missing that with Schoology.

    I would love to have this feature as well. My students have one week to complete assignments using Schoology, and would like reminder from me to turn it in. As the program is now, I have to do that by scheduling a duplicate assignment. I would much rather have the ability to schedule a simple post do go out as a notification to complete the original assignment.

    To me, it seems that Schoology doesn't care about it at all.
    I mean, all of us have been asking for this feature for a year and a half without any concern/response/reaction from Schoology.
    And it's not as if we were asking for exuberant features: no, most of (not to say almost all of) the virtual learning environments (take Edmodo or Moodle for example) have this feature which is not a gadget: how can you plan and organize your classes without it?
    For me, Schoology's inability to react was one of the main reasons I decided not to work with Schoology...

    Totally agree! I'd love to see this, and I'm surprised it's offered in something as watered down as Google Classroom, but not in Schoology.

    Our teachers would love to have this ability as well. I notice this product enhancement request is pretty old. Has there been any movement to try and get this feature into production?

    This is something that would really help with organisation of assessments and tasks- schoology need to start getting onto these suggestions.

    Hi, Is there a way to save an update or assignment I'm planning on posting as a draft? That way I can publish it later for all classes, or schedule a publish time/date? That'd really be useful.

    Wow, this feature has been requested for the last two years?!!! Hmm, I wonder what's holding Schoology back from doing this? That's something I love about Google Classroom.
