Send Emails only on weekdays

Avatar

Level 2

Hi there,

 

Working with AJO here. 

 

We need to ensure that emails, as part of a Journey, are sent only from Monday to Friday. Profiles enter the Journey on a daily basis based on a rolling date. 
Ideally, we would like profiles to enter the Journey on Saturdays and Sundays as well, for them to be queued and processed on Monday.

Any hints on how to get it done in AJO? Thank you!

Hi @mandarinooo 

use a condition to define your days then you'll have 2 wait activities (one for Sat and one for Sun) with the formula 

toDateTimeOnly(setHours(nowWithDelta(X, "days"), H))

X --> integer for days: 2 for entrances on Sat and 1 for entrances on Sun

H --> time you want to resume queue e.g 9 will be 9 AM your journey timezone

Have a look at wait activity (right after start of your journey) in combination with a custom formula. 

I quickly checked and it seems there are no convenient functions available for your particular use case. May need some tinkering.

Hi @maggod ,
Thank you for your suggestion. 
I had a look. I was hoping someone could share the custom formula that has been used to achieve the use case

Is there a way to build a simple piece of code that we could leverage within the wait condition that will ONLY send people through during Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm?
