Hello Microsoft Learning Q&A Community members,
I'm seeking to understand if there is currently a feature or function to delay the delivery of a message in Teams.

use case 1
as a user I would like to be able to delay the delivery of a direct message to another individual in my team via Teams.
if the person has set status to 'busy, or 'do not disturb' I would prefer not to message and notify them right away,
rather 'wait' until status is 'available'.

use case2
*as a user I would like to be able to schedule the delivery of a message during working hours and/or other user has status set to 'available'

OK, I do know it is possible to schedule the delivery of an e-mail message in outlook, is something similar available in Teams?

Thanks in advance for any insights and feedback you can share.

Best Regards,
Lisa Gaillard

    Not currently, no. As an easy-to-use workaround, you can schedule a Flow to send a Teams message at a given time. You can also go vote this feature request over at the Feedback portal: https://feedbackportal.microsoft.com/feedback/idea/0f21312d-272e-ec11-b6e6-00224827bbc2
