Scheduling An Email With Office 365


Scheduling an email to send at a specific time can be a life (and sanity) saver.  ContactMonkey’s Send Later feature allows you to make sure your emails are sent when you need them to, with no stress.

Compose emails whenever you need, and schedule them to send at a time that is convenient for you or your teams.

Does your team work across different time zones? No problem. Use List Management or Distribution Lists to organize your readers by region, and create emails to send to each timezone. Keep in mind that the time you select is based on the timezone in your settings, so make sure you calculate the time difference!

Q: What if I have teammates across multiple time zones? I don't want to email them at 6 am!

A: It's great to think of them! We recommend segmenting your readers by time zone using List Management or Distribution Lists. Then, you can create emails (duplicate your primary to save time!) and schedule those to send based on each time zone. Make sure you accommodate the time difference when selecting the time to send - the time you choose is based on the timezone you have set for yourself!
