The Email Scheduler allows you to schedule a specific time to send out an email without having to be at a computer when it is sent. Also, because of the browser limitations on the Mass Email, the Email Scheduler is designed to be able to send to as many as 5,000 contacts at a time.
1. Open the scheduled email window.
To send an email using the Email Scheduler, go to Site Management > Email Marketing > Email Scheduler. This will bring up the list of emails that have been saved.
5. Configure your email.
The next screen allows you to customize the email.
- First type the email address that you want to appear in the from portion of the email.
- The "To" space is simply to confirm who you are sending to.
- Type the Subject of your email.
- Scheduled email settings.
- Choose the Message Type.
Text allows you to send a plain text email to the group. HTML gives you a WYSIWYG editor so that you can edit the email with images, links, etc. It is very important to note that some email clients may not be able to read HTML formatted emails. For this reason, it is always a good idea to include a plain text version of the email. That is why we have provided the third option, Text and HTML. This sends the HTML email, unless unable, then it reverts to the plain text. If you know that everyone receiving this email has an HTML capable email client, then this is not necessary.
\L Lastly, you can choose to send a Dynamic Email. This feature is not available to all sites, but is standard for Custom and Church Fusion websites, and is an upgrade for Ministry Fusion, Youth Fusion, and Children Fusion. If you have multiple Dynamic Emails, then you may choose the one you wish to send. Otherwise the only option will be your Dynamic Email. You also have the option of typing a plain text email as mentioned above.
