Once you have your message ready you can do the following actions:
- Save Draft: Message will be saved for later, and your peers will be able to check it before sending.
- Preview: You will be able to select a "Test" channel to send the post there and see how it looks in a real telegram client.
- Schedule: you can schedule the message to be sent at an specific time and date, like any other bulletin.
