Schedule your file generations
In this tutorial, you will learn how to automatically defer the generation of your documents to a later date and/or time. This feature allows you to better reach your target audience at the right time.
Note: Only one scheduled generation option can be used per campaign sheet.
For example, using the Row by row feature together with recurring functionality (via Select hour/date) option is not possible and will cause conflicts.
- On the campaign settings page, click More Actions > Schedule Merge.
2. Publigo offers 3 scheduled generation options to defer file generation
Choose this option if you need to ...
Schedule merge at a pre-selected time the next day (8 am or 1 pm) - within the Publigo app.
Select hour/date schedule file generation at a specified date and/or time once or set them recurrently (weekly, monthly, or yearly) - within the Publigo app.
The Row by row schedule merge by specifying the date and/or time directly in your campaign sheet.
3. Click the SCHEDULE FILE GENERATION button to initialize your campaign.
Note: Your scheduled campaign will not be sent exactly as specified.
There may be a delay of up to an hour (but according to our tests, documents are generated within 5-10 minutes of the specified time).
This delay is due to Google's triggering events. For example, if you selected Tomorrow morning 8am, the generation will start tomorrow between 8am and 9am.
