In this article, we'll explain how you can schedule campaigns in Ambassify and why this has several advantages.
Why is scheduling your campaigns so interesting?
It allows you to better organize your time as an admin. You can block a specific moment of time to create campaigns (e.g., in the first week of the month) and then plan the publication of those campaigns over a more extended period of time (e.g. over the whole following month).
By scheduling your campaigns upfront, you can be assured that the campaigns will be launched on the right day and time
When you are short on resources for a certain period, you can anticipate this by making sure your campaigns are made and published automatically during that period
When you plan to go on holiday, and you want to avoid the community being left behind while you are enjoying your time off, you can overcome this by making sure that new campaigns are being published and the community stays alive and kicking
How can you schedule your campaigns in Ambassify?
Scheduling your campaigns is easy. When setting up your campaign in the campaign builder, click on the
Continue button in the top right. Now, you will be presented with the option to publish your campaign straight away or to schedule it for later.
In case your campaign only has to run for a specific period, you can set an end date, as well as set a date when the campaign will be hidden from Ambassadors - in this case, the campaign will then be archived.
This means your campaign will only be visible between publication and end dates.
When you now go to the Campaigns tab in the admin panel, you will see that your scheduled campaign is in the list and recognizable by the purple label in the status column. In this view, you can also use the "Show all states" dropdown and filter on "Scheduled campaigns". This will give you an overview of all the campaigns that are planned to launch in the future.
Let's say you have scheduled your campaign, and you want to change the time of publication. To do this, you can just open your campaign and click the
Edit campaign button and navigate in the right panel to Timing. Here you can simply change the publish date and optionally set a finish date and an archive date.
Don't forget to save your changes; your campaign will automatically be published when you want your community to see it.
Now that all your campaigns are timely scheduled, you can focus on some other work on your desk!
