Send broadcasts automatically on a date & time of your choosing.
Whether you like to bulk-schedule emails in advance, or simply don't want to let yourself forget to send an important message, this feature allows you to set it & forget it!
Let's set it up.
1. Create your broadcast as normal
Scheduling takes place on the last page of the broadcast creation process — the 'Share' page — so you can return to this tutorial once you're at that point. (Just don't send it yet!)
NOTE: We have a separate tutorial on creating a broadcast here.
2. On the 'Share' page, click the pencil icon next to 'Send now'
You should now be on the 'Share' page, which will look something like this:
To schedule your broadcast for a future date and time, click the pencil icon next to where it says 'Send now':
3. Select your desired date & time from the calendar widget
Select the date and then the time that you want this broadcast to go out:
If you need to change the date & time you selected, you can click the 'Unschedule' text and repeat the steps above:
4. Click 'Continue'
To finish scheduling your broadcast, click 'Continue' in the bottom right hand corner.
After that, a box will pop-up that gives you the option to schedule your broadcast.
Once you click 'Schedule Broadcast', the broadcast will be queued up and ready to go! 🚀
How to edit a scheduled broadcast
Want to make a change to the content? Adjust the scheduled date and time? You still can!
In order to edit a scheduled broadcast, you'll need to unschedule it first. Simply click the 'Unschedule' button for it from the broadcasts list, which will revert that broadcast to a draft.
From there, make any changes you'd like to the draft and then re-schedule it at the end, following the same steps as before.
