How do I schedule an email campaign for a future date and time?


To send a campaign at a specific date and time, you use the Standard campaign type. The date and time of sending is set on the Campaign Summary screen (the fourth step of the campaign creation process).

How to schedule a campaign

  1. Click "Campaigns" on the left menu.
  2. Click "Continue" for the campaign you wish to schedule or create a new campaign.
  3. Navigate to the Summary page for the campaign.
  4. Scroll down to the "Schedule" section of the Campaign Summary page.
  5. Set the date and time that you wish to schedule the campaign to send.
    • To select a specific date from the calendar view, click “Specific Date” and use the calendar to set the preferred date
    • Note the time zone that appears to the right of the time as this is the time zone being used to schedule the campaign
  6. Click the Schedule toggle to set it to the "On" position. 
  7. Click the "Finish" button on the top of the page. Note that if the button reads "Send Now" instead of "Finish," you have not successfully scheduled your campaign to send at a later point. Check to make sure the toggle is set to the "On" position.

To view the scheduled campaign, click the "Type" dropdown on the Campaign overview page and select "Scheduled."

To disable the scheduled send, click the down caret for the campaign you wish to cancel. Then click "Disable."

  When making changes to the schedule date and time fields, clicking the Save and exit button will revert the campaign back to a DRAFT status. Clicking the Finish button will save the campaign as SCHEDULE status.
