This extension allows you to schedule messages to be sent at a future date and time, great if you want to send regular batches of messages or messages overnight, when you don’t want to be sat in front of the computer!
The Scheduler extension also allows you to create a ‘schedule plan’. A schedule plan allows you to send out a series of messages to group members, based on the date when they joined the group. The joining date could be the day when they first subscribed, or the date when you, as the site administrator, manually added them to the group.
The extension plugin adds new fields to the existing JOT messaging screen, allowing you to specify a description for your schedule and to select the time and date when the schedule will run.
You can also specify whether you want the schedule to be repeated daily, weekly, monthly or annually.
A new tab, the “Schedule Manager”, allows you to see the status of your schedule and the status of completed scheduled jobs.
Clicking on an existing schedule, will open up the schedule details, allowing you to edit the content of the message and the schedule time and date.
