Time Zone Scheduling

Allowing me to send out scheduled emails based on my customers time zone would be mazing.

Currently, when I schedule an email it is based on my time zone, and will send to recipients at the same time, regardless of where they are. For example, I'm in Arizona so when I schedule an emailf or 5 a.m. AZ time, those on the East Coast will see it at 8 a.m., while those on the West Coast are receiving it at 5 a.m. However, it would be great if everyone could receive the e-mail at 8 a.m., so no matter where you live, the email is being delivered to your inbox at 8 a.m. Other software like offers this feature, not sure why Constant Contact does not.

 has a time-warp option which I think is great. For example,you can choose to send your email at 9:00 AM depending on the time zone of the recipient.

Is this possible yet? Most email platforms allow this so I assumed Constant Contact would have no problem doing this but I'm not finding any solutions.

Why is this still not possible?

Is there a time zone resolution yet?

I agree, my company has a lot of international customers–all over the world. Being able to segment by time zone would save me so much!!

I could certainly use this option now... Would be easier than uploading 3 lists for different times zones.

Let me know when your time zone handling catches up with the 1990's.

Hello, Is it possible add time zones to the contacts in the lists? We have techs who are all over the country, I try to send our information emails out towards the end of their working day so our informational email doesn't get lost in the daily inbox clutter and overlooked. If we were able to assign a tech to an area of the country then we could specify our "blasts" to go out 3:30 pm ET, CT MT and PT. Thanks for listening. Gail Wigmore

Hi @JasonB028

 

Does creating custom fields for these time zones help fit your needs? You can

Hi Frankie,

How would you set up the time zones? I went into a contact for to get a quick glance at custom fields. Here are the choices that I saw in there. Field name could be time zones but what would the text field represent? Thanks!

Hi @JasonB028

 

Are you looking to set a specific time? Or does select a text custom field and typing in the time zone help?

Time zones would be okay. So you're saying we can put a custom field and call it (text selection) ET, CT, MT and PT, break our tech list up by the time selection, then send out the lists out at different times according to the custom field list?

Hi @JasonB028

 

That's correct. You can create a custom field for these time zones, create segments for the custom field, and schedule a campaign to this segment.
