Set a Specific Delivery Time and Date for Automated Emails

0 Votes

Please add the option to select a day of the week for drip emails!



We are in the Commercial Real Estate business. I am sending out 4-5 flyers/brochures a day. I need them to go out automatically, (example) every 9:00 AM or every other Wed. at 12:00 noon. I am trying to keep track of them on my Outlook calendar and then going to Constant Contact to schedule them, It is so confusing and taking so long. I had a new Principal come to me yesterday and saw what I was doing and thought it the most ridiculous way possible. He came from a company where they used. They were all automated. Yes, I know more expensive. Please don't let them take my CC away as it has been such a pleasure working with all your people. Please try to get automated emails in place ASAP. The way you have it set up now is more difficult then on my Outlook Calendar. Thank You

There needs to be a way to set scheduling hours for the e-mails, also I should be able to send an e-mail to additional groups of different days.

Hi @EllenS71  what about our custom delivery settings do not fit your needs for selecting a day of the week? How would you expect to select the specific day?

We're updating the status of this idea to more accurately reflect its current status with our engineering team and also made slight changes to the subject line in order for it to be more easily found. We can't guarantee a commitment to deliver on this feature request for creating specific sending options for an automated series but it should indicate some awareness that we have heard your feedback and could be taken under consideration for a future release.

As mentioned in Frankie's reply, custom delivery settings can be set for each series. You can select a day and time range for the step to send. While it's not explicitly selecting a time, we hope this can help in the meantime.
