Send Workflows Emails on a Specific Day of the Week

Right now we have the option to send out workflow emails on Business Days only.

It would also be helpful if we could send a email from a workflow on a specific day of the week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc.) consistently.

We could optimize the emails based on our known delivery successes, and also create new styles of campaigns, such as a weekly course like Tuesday Tips.

Is there a way to set the workflow so that the person enrolled receives an email every Monday for five consecutive weeks?

 

I understand I could delay the action a set amount of days, but is there a way to ensure they receive the emails on a Monday as opposed to a set amount of days since completing the form?

 

Thanks!

Hi @JoshHorton,

 

HubSpot does not offer a Workflow feature that lets you send emails on a specific day of the week. As you mentioned, the usual method would be to delay the action a certain amount of days. You could even limit the workflow to only execute actions on business days only (this is found in Workflow Settings), but it wouldn't be possible to have a specific rule that only sends the email on a  Monday.

 

I definitely see how this could be a useful feature so I encourage you to post it as a suggestion on the Ideas board of this Community.

This is a big one for anyone running evergreen events like webinars... 
It is standard fodder in programs like Active Campaign, Infusionsoft, etc.

 

Here is a screenshot of Infusionsofts...

To expand this further I would like to "Wait Until Sunday at 3PM" as an example. 

 

Thanks!

In addition to send ON dates, also include a DON'T SEND date option!

Yeah, I'm having trouble switching from Mailchimp to Hubspot for one of our ongoing automations, because Hubspot doesn't have this feature.

 

Here is what Mailchimp's looks like when I'm only sending on one day of the week at a specific time.

Yes, please! This would also help us for workflows that are triggered when contacts are added to a list. Being able to add them at any time and know they'll get the first email the next Tuesday, rather than wait until Tuesday mornings to add them, would be incredibly helpful.

As an update I had our developer create an endpoint that would return the next (Monday|Tuesday|Wednesday|Thursday|ETC)...
Now running into the fact that it takes FOREEEEVER and the Hubspot API limits how many calls you can have. 

Wish it wasn't so hard for them to figure out how to just do it in the program. :-/

Please do this soon! As an email marketing platform, its crazy that Hubspot doesn't have this feature.
