Managing Events in Slack using Scheduled Messages

Slack Scheduler > Blog > Managing Events in Slack using Scheduled Messages

Navigating and managing a business or event of any kind is a work in progress. This is especially true for large-scale businesses and events that require a lot of coordination, understanding, capability, strong management and maintenance.

Anyone who has ever handled the operations of this type of business or event knows this. Thankfully, in recent years there has been wave after wave of materials and tools that have been introduced to make managing virtual events more convenient and efficient.

In a world that steadily becomes rapidly familiar (and quite honestly, reliant) on digital and technological innovations, the value of these modern materials and tools continues to rise.

For businesses and events like charities, festivals, and networking events, keeping on top of all of the moving pieces that are required for events to be able to function, can be overwhelming at times. Leveraging technology like Slack to manage events is necessary.

But Slack can still be a burden to manage if you have hundreds of messages and channels to manage across different timezones. 

Using a tool like Slack Scheduler is a way for you to be able to stay on top of communications easier than ever. There are various benefits of using scheduled messages for large-scale operations, all of which are of course important and valuable.

So, what are the most valuable reasons to implement Slack Scheduler to manage a large-scale operation?

Stay connected through a reliable chain of command

The way that Scheduler is designed is to give you the best way to communicate with everyone in your team in the lead up to, during, and in the aftermath of an event or simply in general for your business.

Slack Scheduler is essentially designed to give you a way to stay connected with everyone on your team via a reliable chain of command. Without a doubt, this is one of the biggest benefits of Slack Scheduler because it is the foundation of how and why we created it. Further, being able to schedule and delete scheduled messages gives you more active and ongoing control over how your scheduled messages are managed.

Have every scheduled message in one place

We understand that when in the midst of such a busy time, the last thing that you need is to have to do more work to be able to manage the messages you have already spent valuable time scheduling. With our brand new dashboard, you can now have the peace of mind that all of your scheduled messages can be easily managed in one space.

Rather than having to dart around going back and forth to check individual scheduled messages, this new dashboard gives you every scheduled message in one place. The dashboard makes this process easier than ever, giving you more time to focus on other aspects of the event or your business throughout its entirety.

Know exactly when the next message will be sent

Sometimes, one of the biggest stresses of large-scale businesses and events is staying on top of when communications need to be handled. Of course, a significant benefit of using Slack Scheduler is knowing that not only have you scheduled messages easily and reliably, but you have all of the information on when the messages are going to be sent next.

Whether it is setting a scheduled reminder for yourself for later in the day, or sending our vital communications to a widespread team throughout an event, Slack Scheduler ensures that you can see when all of your scheduled messages are sent out, so that you can have the peace of mind of knowing when they are being rolled out and if you need to adjust unexpectedly at a moment’s notice.

Make set up, duration, and followup easier than ever

Have you ever been trying to organise last minute changes with an event setup?

Have you found yourself in the position of having to wrangle a team member and not being able to find them when you need them most?

Has packing down after an event been chaotic because there were moments where seemingly small (but realistically large) elements were forgotten and almost left behind?

With so many moving pieces happening during an event like a charity drive, a festival, a networking event, or even just the day-to-day operations of a large-scale business that spans the globe, efficiency is the aim of the game. Slack Scheduler gives you the power of being able to schedule even the most in-depth messages via the Advanced Scheduler feature as well as being able to schedule new messages in an instant, making the whole process simpler and giving you peace of mind.


If you have an upcoming event, Slack Scheduler can help you manage your team's communication and plan out your announcements well and advanced.
