We are sending reminders, and blog updates which have the same content weekly and sometimes twice a week. We are having to copy campaigns and spend a lot of time scheduling campaigns in order to make it happen. A recurring send option would be awesome!!

Hi there! Thanks for writing. Are the reminders and blog updates you’re sending going to the same people with the same content weekly? I think it might help to get a more real-world understanding of the type of content you’re imparting and why it’s being shared multiple times.

Hey katie, yes it is going to a blog on one of our clients, which is emailed with weekly updated blog content. And the other account is a cleaners who does pickups/deliveries, it's a reminder to his clients of their pickup and delivery days. That's the one that's taking so much time because we are going in and scheduling a month in advance, 2 per week: a Monday Campaign and a Wednesday Campaign. The monday campaign goes to a specific audience, and the wednesday campaign goes to a specific audience. Thanks- Lucas

Thanks for these details, Lucas! It sounds like you’re editing the blog mailing with updated content each time before sending it; is that right? Or does that mailing simply contain a link to your blog, and going to that link shows the most recent content?

I get what you mean with the cleaners emails. I’m checking in with our developers to learn more about the mailing automation work they’re doing, and in the meantime, you might check out this conversation about a recurring email series.

Hey again, Lucas! I chatted with our team that’s working on autoresponders, and while there’s some cool work in the pipeline, it doesn’t exactly line up with your goal here. Scheduling your emails to the proper audience segments is still going to be the best route for you for now.

Thank you for this idea!

That would be really great...we send event invitations to the same group(s) 2-3 times, and it would really be a time-saver to be able to schedule each email to go out on specific dates/times (set it and forget it)!

We need this function also. Want to send the same email twice per month to let clients know that their reports are ready to be viewed. The template will always be the same, we would just update the audience as the client list changed.

Is there any updates to this? I want to send a recurring email to my team that has the same link each week. Just as a remind. Thanks!
I am interested in more options for scheduling emails too. I send out an event email and want it to go out weekly or every other week up until a certain date. Right now I schedule them all individually which is time consuming. Plus if I have to edit it, I will have to remake them all.

Hi there! This is Cody with Emma's Product team. I'm exploring recurring scheduled emails as a possible addition to our toolset in 2017 and would love to learn more about how you'd like to use them. Would you be open to chatting for a bit sometime this week? If so, just reply here to confirm, and I'll contact you directly to schedule something. 

Oh, and for anybody else who'd like to connect, that offer stands for you too! Just reply here and I'll reach out. Meantime, we're moving this post from "Not Planned" to "Under Consideration."

We only need to send the same email campaign to the same audience on the same date of the month. The audience will be updated every two weeks but the email and dates will stay the same
