BBM Channels have been a part of the BBM platform for over two years, but they updates/changes to expand on the productivity and capabilities of the social media platform have been few and far between. Sure, BlackBerry has added targeted audience options and multiple admins
, but the ability to schedule a post is one that many admins were hoping we'd see in the foreseeable future. Apparentely the scheduled post capabilities have become a reality for those who use channels through the online portal vs. on their devices.
The new scheduling feature allows for date and time to be selected for the post, with time zone selection present as well. The feature may take a while to push out to your BBM Online Portal or may not play nice with certain browsers, as was our experience with Chrome. Luckily, the Scheduled Post option was available in Internet Explorer.
Is this new BBM Channels Admin feature something you'll integrate to your posts? Let us know in the comments below!
