Automated Holiday Emails

Hi! With our previous email system, we could schedule emails for the year to send ahead of a holiday and let people know we'd be closed. I think the only option in Constant Contact would be to create one-off emails for each holiday and schedule them because I can't see a way to automate that. Does anyone have another best practice they could share?

Hello @SuzanneC305 ,

 

No, the current best practice for the sake of reporting and email traffic would be to do one-off emails scheduled ahead of time. Depending on your wording choices, there should be very little to edit from each year's copy of an email to another, which will help in streamlining the process. Automation paths aren't really designed for specific calendar dates.
