How to schedule your email drip campaign

When you create a drip campaign on our platform, you can specify the day and time (including alignment with the prospects’ time zone) for when you want your emails to be sent.

Simply follow the steps below if you want to schedule your drip campaign on Snov.io platform. There are a few ways to create a Schedule and set the best time to send emails.

Method 1. In the Schedules tab

Сlick on the Schedules button from your list of campaigns and you’ll be redirected to a new window where you can create and save a schedule.

Method 2. Directly from a campaign

If you have previously created a schedule, you can choose it for your campaign by clicking Choose schedule on the left.

If you want to create a new one, click Create a schedule. In the same window you’ll be able to choose the recipients’ time zone, days and time windows for your campaigns. For example, you can choose to send the campaign Monday to Friday, from 9AM till 6PM, Sydney time. 

Name your schedule, choose the time zone, and tick the checkboxes next to the emailing days, and pick the hours between which the emails will be sent. Press Save and you’re all set!

Please note that when you add Delay or Trigger elements to your campaign, the sending will still abide by the schedule. Keep that in mind when creating a schedule and the campaign itself.

When the schedule is ready, you can apply it to your drip campaign. Open your drip campaign and click the Choose schedule button.

Select the schedule that you want to use for your current campaign by clicking on it and then click Apply.

All drip campaigns that are running according to a schedule will have this icon next to the campaign name.

You can edit the schedule either from the list of campaigns or from the chosen campaign itself. In order to do that, click on the Edit icon in the top right corner of the window.

Please note that if you edit the schedule and save the changes, these changes will be applied to all the campaigns that are running according to this schedule.

How to set the campaign duration

In your email drip campaign, you can also customize the duration so that your emails will start and end on a certain day whenever you want. In the campaign duration section, choose the date, time zone and the time the campaign starts and ends and your campaign will be sent within a specific time frame.

If you use both campaign duration and scheduling, make sure they are set in the same time zone.
