How to schedule a campaign for broadcast?

Why would you need to ‘schedule’ a notification?

You do not need to create broadcast campaigns only when you need them sent. If you have planned an upcoming event or sale or content that you want to broadcast for a later date/time or while you are away, you can do so by using the scheduling feature. Your subscribers will see the campaigns as you set them on the date & at the time that you schedule them.

You need to first log in with your registered account to schedule push campaigns. In your PushEngage Dashboard, please navigate to Campaigns > Push Broadcast > Content. You can add the text fields of all the Notification Title, Notification Message, Notification URLs & add an image to be seen in the campaigns.

Note: A scheduled notification can be edited or deleted before the scheduled date & time arrives. You need a Business plan and above to schedule the campaigns.

To understand in detail how to design your push broadcast you can refer to this guide on how to create your push broadcast.

Scheduling Options: You can schedule the notifications to go out at a later time, even when it is out of your working hour or when you are enjoying your vacation. Also, the scheduling can be repeated by setting up the days in a week and setting the timing of the sending as well.

Below are the filters that you can select:

  • Schedule on a particular day & time.
  • Schedule recurring campaign,

Once you complete adding all the details as mentioned on the campaign page above, click on the Audience tab & then click on the Send/Schedule tab. You can choose either of the options, but if you want to send the campaign at a later date and time, you can select Schedule and then set the date and time. Click on Schedule Notification.

How to select Audience for sending notifications?

Note: Selecting Audience is available in our Business plan & higher. Here, you can select a cluster of subscribers that you want to send the campaign.
