Did my broadcast actually send? Is my broadcast stuck? If you’re asking yourself these questions, here’s how to find out.

On the right side of your broadcasts page, you’ll see a few different broadcast terms. Each term will indicate a different status for your broadcast (one-off) emails.

Broadcast terms and what they mean


These are broadcasts that have not yet been sent.


These are broadcasts that are currently being sent.

As your broadcast sends, you’ll see the percentage of recipients that it’s been delivered to. You can find the sending percentage on your broadcasts dashboard, as well as within each individual broadcast report.


These are broadcasts that are scheduled for a later send time.


These are broadcasts that have previously been sent.

Why is my broadcast still processing?

When you press "send", your broadcast enters a queue. Depending on how many other ConvertKit users are sending messages, and how messages are being sent, broadcasts can take some time to process.

Give your broadcast a little time to get through the queue. If you see your broadcast is queued or processing, please do not create a duplicate to send instead. Your broadcast will be sent, and so will any duplicates. (You don’t want to send your subscribers the same email twice!)

If you do not see your broadcast send within the hour, please contact support and we can look into what might be the culprit.

Note: If you’re sending an A/B test, our testing window is 4 hours which will keep the broadcast in a processing status until after the 4 hours is up.

How are broadcasts ordered?

Broadcasts are ordered by date of creation, not necessarily the date the broadcast was sent or date scheduled.
