In this doc, we'll show you How to Time your Drip Emails to Match your Deadline. There are a few additional steps to complete as well -

please visit our main Drip guide for more details.

Sometimes you want to give your subscribers reminder emails letting them know when their deadline is ending. But what happens if some of your subscribers sign up at 8 AM, and others subscribe at 4 PM on the same day? How can you make sure the reminder emails match the set deadline?

Our documentation below will help you with that exact scenario.


How to Time Your Drip Emails to Match Your Deadline

Navigate to your Drip Workflow and ensure that you have a tag or other starting point to mark when users are subscribed, and also check to be sure that you have followed the API setup steps to add your webhook URL to the Workflow:

In this example, we've set the campaign to be 3 days and to end at 11:59 PM EST on the final day:

So we see that when the user signs up, three things happen. A tag is added to the user which kicks off our Workflow, and then a webhook is sent back to Deadline Funnel to trigger the deadline, and our first email goes out to our subscriber. We then want to add two conditional statements which will allow us to line up our emails with the deadline:

Set the first wait condition to wait on all days until 12 AM:

Then set the second wait condition to wait on all days until 8 AM (which will be the next morning):

Now we'll set the emails to go out each day until the last day is reached:

On the last day, we know that our "Day 3" morning email will go out at 8 AM – so we can set another two reminder emails to go out 9 hours before the deadline ends and 3 hours before the deadline is reached, respectively:

Important: Please note that in this example, the time zone selected in Deadline Funnel and Drip is set to EST. You can set this time zone to whatever you wish, but the time zones set in Deadline Funnel and Drip must be the same.

That's it! Please be sure to test your campaign.
