Schedule a Campaign

There are two places to set the schedule for a campaign: timing settings and the delay between emails.

Timing Settings

Campaign timing settings

Set the campaign-wide settings in Timing Settings. Timing settings only apply if you are using the “Day” delays between emails. If you set an “Hour” or “Minute” delay, that overrides the campaign-wide settings.

Select the time of day and timezone to send out campaign emails. Campaign emails will only get sent out at the time of day and days of the week set here. For example, if you only select “Mon” at 11 am in the recipient’s timezone, campaign emails will only go out on Mondays at 11 am in the recipient’s timezone.

If the delay between emails is set to 7 days, and the timing settings are set to “Mon” at 11 am in the recipient’s timezone, campaign emails will go out every 7 Monday’s at 11 am in the recipient’s timezone.

Delay Between Emails

The delay between emails determines when each campaign email is sent out. Each email is sent out based on when the previous email was sent out. If you set an “Hour” or “Minute” delay, that overrides the campaign-wide settings.

The first email in a campaign always defaults to send immediately after someone is added to the campaign. To delay the first email in a campaign, visit the campaign settings and manage the Timing Delay settings.

To modify the delay between each email:

  1. Enter a number

  2. Click the drop-down

  3. Select from minutes, hours, or days

Minutes are based on sixty-second intervals.

Hours are based on sixty-minute intervals.

Days are based on twenty-four-hour intervals.

If you add an email to the end of a Campaign, the delay is based upon when the email is published and not for when the last email was sent out.
