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?

This guide will help you with that exact scenario.


How to Time Your Flodesk Emails to Match Your Deadline

Navigate to Workflows in your Flodesk account and ensure that you have selected a segment from your account to trigger the start of 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.

When the subscriber signs up, two things will happen. A segment is added to the subscriber which kicks off Flodesk's workflow and then through Zapier, Deadline Funnel triggers the deadline.

Set the first wait condition to wait until 12 AM.

Then set the second wait condition to wait 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 reminder email to go out 10 hours before the deadline ends.

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