Scheduling a Mailchimp newsletter campaign


Once you have created your Mailchimp newsletter campaign, you can schedule when you would like it to begin.

To schedule a Mailchimp newsletter campaign:

  1. Click Options in the Mailchimp widget to display the Options menu. The Options menu is only available after creating a newsletter campaign.
  2. Click Schedule. This displays the Schedule Campaign form.
  3. Click date_range to open the scheduler.
  4. Select the date and time you would like the campaign to begin.

    Tip
    You can only schedule a Mailchimp campaign to begin on the quarter-hour (:00, :15, :30, :45).

    Click Clear to erase the schedule.

  6. Click Schedule Campaign to schedule the campaign to begin at the date/time you selected. The Mailchimp widget updates to show the date/time the campaign is scheduled to begin.
