Pick time to send

Pick time to send

I would really like to be able to schedule times on when my email will go out or at least pick a 2-3 hour window when it will go out. I REALLY don't want my emails going out after work hours or weekends since I'm doing a B2B business.

Hello, I have a gift to give people who sign on to my list - and I need to get that gift to them within a few minutes of their sign up. The autoresponder makes me wait at least 1 day - and this could mean I lose those people who want the information now - which most people do. We need a minutes option for the delay on the autoresponders. The point of the autoresponders is to send emails when we need them to go out without us having to attend the emails 24/7 correct? For this venture I am on to be effective, and allow me to continue with CC, I need as many people to receive their gifts ASAP. Increasing the conversion from potential client to paying client can often be dependent on how fast they received the promised goods. Thank you! **Removed Byt Moderator**

You should be able to have an exact send time instead of the 24-48 hours. It would also be nice to send it right away.

I send Friday notes to subscribers. But i cannot use your autoresponder because it does not give me the option of sending on a certain date ...please add this function!

I anticipate poor responder results as I can not choose a time that my campaign is sent out based on my knowledge and experience with our target market.

I'm a B2B business would love to be able to select dates from a calendar when I want the emails to go out. And never on WEEKENDS!

It is super important that our clients receive their AR every morning, but I was told there is no way to set a time frame. Most of my clients signed up for the AR emails last night which means they will probably receive their AR emails at night. This is problematic because the email is about setting an intention and focus for their day and it is an exercise we want them to do in the morning. Please please can you help me set a time frame for our clients to receive these emails?

It would be WAY more useful if the auto respond email series could be scheduled on certain days instead of # of days/weeks etc. When signing people up, everyone joins the list at different times so having them receive an email the exact same time as everyone else does would be easier to manage as a program coordinator.

Hi - it would be really useful if you could choose which time that the automated birthday email goes out. We use it throughout our company but seeing as how the birthday email sends at 9pm when everyone in the office is gone home, it is pretty pointless. I would prefer to manually send the email myself!

We want to start using the Auto-Responder feature but we can only see a good use for it if we were able to schedule the auto-responder email for a specific day and time. 

 

Right now, the only options for when to send is: immediately after contact is added to a list, hours after, days after, or weeks after. We don't see these as viable options

I would like to schedule what time of day I send an automated email. For example, the automated birthday emails cannot be scheduled to send at a particular time on the recipient's birthday. They are going out at different times.

Looks like we may be overdue for an update on this thread. We've released a number of significant changes to automated campaigns since this was originally posted. Among those changes include the ability to set custom delivery windows to limit sending to certain times/days of the week. There is also no longer the 24-48 hour delay for sending when a contact joins a list. You can choose to send immediately after a contact joins a list if you'd like. 

 

These changes are for automated series, birthday and anniversary emails follow a different scheduling flow, but we do know there is similar feedback for those emails.
