/remind function to set and get reminders of topics set
Slack and Discord have many similarities and when I'm using Slack I often find myself writing some reminders that remind me of any topic I write down. For example you can set a reminder in a Channel / DM, tag someone, tell the reminder when you want to be reminded and add a topic for this. When the time arrived the reminder sends a message to the channel or person (whereever you used the remind action) with the topic you specified.

I would really like this feature included to Discord because I'm a forgetful person.
Thanks for reading and I hope this feature will be included at some point :)
There are bots that you can invite to your server that can do reminders. https://reminder-bot.com/help/?lang=EN
I still find that Slack's built in reminder is much more natural though. Anyway, I doubt this will become a built in feature for Discord.
Another feature I would kind of like is a way to send direct messages to yourself, but I've kinda worked around the issue by just creating a server with only myself in it.-2
I don't know if this answer is still useful, but still, I encountered myself with this same problem, after looking for a while I found two bots that could resolve this issue (bot with free and premium options), I'm a developer so I thought I could just use the Google Calendar API and create my own bot, with my needs, then I realize this tool I've been using for a while at work, it's Zapier https://zapier.com/ . It's a free tool that you can connect with a lot of services around the web, pretty easy to use, you can do what you need right here, so you don't need to buy a Bot, or use some unknown bot to get this done, just use Zapier, and see the how the magic happens-2
It would be nice to have this just built in like on Slack.8
I do think as well this is basic functionality... remind me about this message in 2 days for example... I hope the developers are listening because these small tools make a world of a difference.4
Totally agree. It's hard for me to migrate from Slack to Discord because of this missing functionality3
Having reminders that go off a certain times isn't that important to me, and I see there are bots for this.
What I would really like is a way to reactivate a message at a later time/date. For example, I receive a message as I'm leaving work. I want to address it when I get home. In slack I can ask it to remind me about this message in an hour. I'll get a fresh notification about the message.
This functionality is what allows me to stay on top of my tasks.1
Same for me, absolutely must for me to have reminders of messages. Two scenarios (at least):
- Someone sends a message that I want to check later on because I don't have time now. I click on the message and set a reminder to remind me in x hours or x days of this message.
- I sent a message because I need someone to take an action on something. I click on that message I sent and set a reminder so tomorrow I remember to insist in that person or whatever.
I do this all the time in Slack.2
Def agree on this.. esp if we keep pushing for Discord to be the Slack/Teams replacement -- sure bots are capable, but come on.. shouldn't require a bot for a reminder.. and on that note, should have a screen/calendar/whatever to display reminder's by due date and/or the full list of reminder's visible in one view, but sorted by due date/etc2
