How to Schedule Comments on Trello

I'm not sure what got it stuck in my head, but for some reason this week I could not stop thinking about how to schedule comments in Trello. You know, sometimes you're late-night updating Trello boards, but don't want to send notifications to everyone at off hours. (Just me burning the midnight Trello candle?)

And I didn't think there was a power-up or any solution for it. I thought maybe I could figure it out with Butler, but no such luck. But I did end up finding a solution with a little help from my friends. Aka, my other favorite tools in my toolbox (PixieBrix and Zapier). 

Here's what it looks like:

And here's a video showing you how to build it! (It's honestly a little hard to follow in screenshots and text, so video is probably the easiest way to consume)
