Automatic emails schedule

Wild Apricot sends out a number of automatic emails according to your settings.

Event announcements and reminders are queued for delivery according to the start time of the event. For example, if the event's start time is 5pm PST, then the announcement or reminder is queued for 5pm PST on the date you choose.

If you want the announcement or reminder to be sent the day of the event, you will need to schedule the email to be sent 0 days before the event.

If you are setting up announcements or reminders to be sent today for an event in the future, then the event's start time will not be a factor. For example, if you set up the email schedule at 6pm and the start time of your event is 5pm, the announcement or reminder will still be sent out today as soon as the queue is free.

Actual delivery might be plus or minus a few hours due to queueing and batching first on our end and then on recipients' mail servers.
