How to use Scheduling 📆
New in Because: Scheduling 📆
We launched an exciting new feature -- the ability to schedule your Banners and Pop Ups. You can now schedule 📆 a start and end date for your content.
No more forgetting to turn off your limited time promotions- now just choose your date selection in your campaign details and publish it. It won't go live until the start date, and it will automatically turn off on your end date.
Just keep in mind this calendar functions on a global UTC timezone, so make sure you're following that timeline and not your local timezone 😇
Scheduling is perfect for getting organized when prepping multiple Banners or Text Elements at once.
When should you use Scheduling?
🗓 Here are some of our most common use cases for Scheduling:
⏳ Limited time BOGOs
🎄 Holiday promotions just for the day, week, or month
🎁 New product releases
📦 Out of stock messages based on when you plan to re-stock
🚚 Shipping delays or COVID updates
⏱ Really anything that only needs to be published for a limited amount of time!
Here's how you can get to scheduling in the app:
Create a Banner or Text Element by clicking 'Campaigns' in the navigation. Then click "Create New Campaign" in the top right hand corner.
Choose your playbook template, edit your design in the editor, and then click through to the third step "Rules"
Scroll down to the bottom to the Scheduling Rules section.
If you want your campaign to go live from August 16th- August 22nd 2022, you will do the following.
Add a scheduling rule and select the following: "Start date is greater than or equal to August 16th"
Add a second rule and select the following: "End date is less than or equal to August 22nd"
Your Banner/Text Element MUST be published for it to go live on your selected dates and it will follow the UTC timezone. ALL rules must be selected (not "any") for scheduling to work.
Try it out in Because here!
