Schedule a Recurring Campaign

Set the days and times and then forget about it

Can I schedule recurring emails in tinyEmail?

Yes, you can. Use our calendar-based tool (beta release) to schedule a recurring campaign. Recurring means tinyEmail automatically sends the same campaign message each scheduled day of the week at the same scheduled time.

Setting up a recurring campaign is as easy as 1-2-3-4.

  1. Create a campaign.
  2. Set the recurring dates.
  3. Let the automation do the work.
  4. Tell us when to stop the campaign.

The Recurring Campaign tool is an early beta release. Our dev team is working on enhancements to improve the user experience, like adding a last day to send button. For now, when you want to stop a recurring campaign, send a request to the support team. 


The Recurring Campaign tool is at the back end of the Create Campaign workflow. For the sake of brevity, I'll skip over the create campaign details. 

If you're new to tinyEmail or can't remember how to create a campaign, I suggest you read Create and Send Email Campaigns.

Setting up a recurring campaign

So, to create a recurring campaign.

  1. Click Campaigns on the side menu.
  2. Click the Create Campaign button.
  3. Click Email campaign in the popup.
  4. Fill in the Details fields and select your Sender email address. Select a sender email address. 

You can select a sender email address that has not yet been DKIM authenticated, but I urge you to take a few minutes and complete the DKIM authentication process. Learn more.

Click Continue and move through the workflow (almost there). 

  1. Select a template or build a new one.
  2. Click Continue.
  3. Edit the template and then click Continue.
  4. On the Select your audience page, check a box to choose an audience and then click Continue.

Here's a scenario

Let's say you want to send your audience two messages a day for three consecutive days—one in the morning and one in the early evening. Maybe it's a special holiday blast. You'd set up two recurring schedules: one for the morning campaign (say 6 am) and one for later the same day (say 5:30 pm). You could send the same campaign message or create two different ones.  

Even better, you could use our JSON web feed tool and send the same core content (e.g. branding) with different product promotions (e.g. promote an iPhone in the morning and an iPad in the evening). Learn more.

Setting up a recurring schedule

Okay, finally here. On the Preflight checklist page, scroll down to the Schedule heading. Click Setup. A popup displays.

click Setup to shedule a campaign

In the popup, switch on the Recurring toggle. Set the send time and use the checkboxes to select which days to send the message. When you refinished, click Schedule.

  • BTW  In the beta release, the default start date is tomorrow (your local time). That will change when our team team builds the future date enhancement.

Actual send times are based on your time zone. The popup shows your time zone for reference purposes. You cannot edit this field.

Reviewing a scheduled campaign

Go to the Email Campaigns page and click the Recurring tab. The page shows the parent recurring campaign(s) that you created.
