Never forget another birthday with Microsoft Teams - Gosse explains

Remembering all colleagues' birthdays can be a challenge, especially in larger teams or in a rapidly changing work environment. Microsoft Teams offers a simple but effective solution to ensure that you're always attentive, even if you momentarily forget yourself. In our series "Gosse explains," we reveal a convenient feature within Teams which allows you to schedule messages ahead and have them sent automatically. So you can set a birthday message days, weeks or even months in advance, and be confident that it will be delivered on exactly the right day.

How to Schedule an Automatic Message in Teams?

  1. Open Teams: Navigate to the chat area of the colleague you wish to congratulate.
  2. Write your message: Type a heartfelt birthday wish.
  3. Schedule shipping: Right-click the send button and select the desired date and time for your message.

This simple process ensures that your colleague receives a personalized message on his or her special day, without fear of forgetting.
