How To Schedule a Broadcast
Broadcasts are used to send out a single email to a large list of contacts all at once.
To schedule a broadcast follow these steps:
Option 1: Click on the Grounghogg icon at the top right of your screen. Click here for further instructions.
Option 2: Navigate to Groundhogg > Broadcasts > Schedule Email Broadcast.
Select an email to send... [ Next → ]
Click [ Campaigns →], select or create a campaign
Click [ Schedule → ]
You can then select the time you want the broadcast to go out by selecting "Later" and picking a date and time. Or to send it right away by selecting "Now".
If you enable " Send in the contact's local time", the email will be sent at the given hour in their local time zone (if a time zone is recorded for that contact). This option has no effect if "Now" is selected.
Click [ Contacts →]
When scheduling your broadcast you have two options. You can use a saved search or create a new one using Groundhogg's advanced search with multiple criteria by clicking on the filter "+" to include or exclude as many filters as you like.
NOTE: Emails in DRAFT mode cannot be sent in a broadcast.
Click [ Review → ]
The final step is to review and click the [ Confirm and schedule! ] button.
You can close the status window by clicking the "X" or you can schedule another broadcast by clicking the [ Shecdule another broadcast ]
When you hover over a broadcast, a menu will appear offering options such as *Reporting, Edit email, View Query, or *Re-send to unopened
*Advance Features Extension must be installed.
