Schedule Zendesk tickets to send at a specific time

This might come in handy for those of you who work outside of hours like me.

From time to time I find myself thinking of a problem after hours and when I have that eureka moment I like to get the ticket solved & out of the queue, but at the same time I dont necessarily want the user to see that it was answered at 11pm

I use a combination of google apps for email, boomerang for gmail ( to schedule the tickets and zendesk's mail API to set tags and status etc

So I reply to the ticket via email, schedule to send it and the relevant time and more on.

Some screenshots of what I created are in this link


 There is also an outlook version of boomerang if you dont use gmail/google apps

I use Outlook's "Delay delivery" feature for this as well, and it's something that I make use of constantly. However, I was curious if there was any plan to build this functionality right in to zendesk so that from the web-version or iPad app we could submit a ticket with all the adjusted tags but have it post at a specified time?
