Sequence send window of 6 months

SOLVE

Does anyone know why there is a limit of 6 months from the current date when enrolling a contact into a sequence?  In other words, if today's date is Nov 18, and I want to enroll a contact into a sequence to start on July 1, the latest date available start date to enroll is May 18.

Hi @TMapes,

 

I don't know, I can only hypothesize. If scheduling in advance wouldn't be limited to a certain number of months, that could potentially lead to users building a backlog of a large number of emails to be sent in the future, which they might not always remember. HubSpot regularly emphasizes that they would like to keep sales communication real and in various places, there are limits to ensure this. Again, I don't have insight into the exact reasons but this is what I would imagine.

 

In any case, I can see how it could be useful to have more flexibility. You can request a change in the HubSpot Ideas section of the community: https://community.hubspot.com/t5/HubSpot-Ideas/idb-p/HubSpot_Ideas
