Autoscheduling Considered Not Essential by ActiveRain

Reblogger Brian England

I share in the frustration that Roy Kelley has with the scheduler not being operational.  I like to schedule my posts so that they are spaced out, rather than 2 or 3 posts one after another.

Autoscheduling Considered Not Essential by ActiveRain


ActiveRain Member Support

The developers are focused on the issues that impact the majority of the community as first priority, and that is as it should be.

The autoscheduling feature didn't even exist for at least the first half of this community's existence, so it's hard to justify it as an essential service that demands the highest priority vs. resolving issues that prevent new members from joining or from the overall community receiving notifications.


ActiveRain bloggers who have be using the scheduling feature to post reblogs and blogs for years may be discouraged by the perspective of ActiveRain Support. This, of course, is only one of the many features of this platform that no longer work.

Brian I have been a member longer than most, and the times I find ActiveRain listens most is when there is a multitude of blogs or re-blogs on the same subject.

Hi Brian England - I remember you telling me that you use this feature a lot.  So, this must bother you more than some other issues. 

I find it interesting the way the powers-to-be put it.  

First of all, they could have used a much better expression to get their point across without being condescending.  Second, they obviously don't know who their customers are.

I don't really use the auto-scheduler Brian England I mean, I have used it in the past but very sporadically. Sometimes it worked and other times it wouldn't so I just stopped using it

I hadn't yet seen the post by Roy Kelley . It is frustrating when features that used to work no longer do. I never post things to my neighborhood AR blogs because they quit working years ago - perhaps they work now? If I had time and interest, I'd check it out.

Brian sometimes people need to realize that it is about leadership and the there lack of now in all fairness this platform has been doing a good job meandering with the lack of.... and those who complain most should look internally let's be clear some of the people that are grousing are retired... just sayin, Endre

I've never used the feature. I guess I'm too controlling...just wouldn't trust it to work as intended. I'm old school and manually post every Wednesday...even when I was on my 6 week road trip last year. I found a way to post without using the scheduling feature.
