A scheduled Newsletter is a Newsletter you will schedule to be automatically sent in the future.
You can prepare your Newsletter and set a send date in the future so AcyMailing will automatically take care of sending it at the time you specified without you having to do anything else.
You can schedule as many Newsletters as you want.
This feature is included in all our commercial versions.
You have to configure your cron task to make sure the automatic send process will work (it's just one extra click on the AcyMailing configuration page).
First, create a Newsletter, attach it to one or several published lists and then access the "Preview / Send" screen.
If your Newsletter is scheduled, you will see the scheduled icon on the Newsletter listings.
You can click on it to unschedule your Newsletter in case of you don't want to send it any more.
If your Newsletter is scheduled and you access the "Preview/Send" screen, you will see an unschedule icon instead of the schedule one so you can click on it to unschedule your Newsletter.
If you scheduled your Newsletter and the specified send date is now in the past but your Newsletter is still not sent, you should first go on the "queue" listing and click on the button "process".
AcyMailing will tell you what's currently in the queue and the pending Newsletters.
You can see the current time for AcyMailing and when your schedule Newsletter will be sent.
If the send date is in the past, the same message will appear but you will also see a "Generate" button enabling you to manually send the scheduled Newsletter.
This button has been added for testing purpose only as this process should be automatically executed by AcyMailing.
If you see this button, that means next time your cron task will trigger your website, the Newsletter will be added to the queue and sent automatically.
Please remember your cron task triggers your website at a fixed frequency so you may have to wait half an hour before your scheduled Newsletter is sent automatically.
