I'm trying to set up our first automation that is date driven. We have an expiration date field and send a series of emails for people to renew starting 60 days before the expiration (60 days before, 30 days before, month of, 1 month after, and 3 months after). But I want to be able to send the emails all at once each month (on the first of the month) versus exactly 60 days before the expiration date, where there would be emails going every day. Is there a way to do this with automation?

Hi there! The closest we can get to this would be to round the expiration dates in your contact records up to the same day, this case the 1st. There isn't a way to force the trigger on the same day each month if the dates in the trigger field vary. The date is king in this case, since the trigger is based on that date!
