How do scheduled messages work?
The schedule message feature lets you schedule a message or flow to be sent at a specific time.
Example: You'd like to send a message next Friday at 4pm to a group that has members located in New York, Florida, and Maine. With Strive, you can schedule your message in advance to to send at 4pm EST on Friday.
How do I schedule my messages to arrive at the same time across different timezones?
The rolling timezones feature allows you to send a message at a specific time in a member’s timezone.
Note: If you have zip code info in your members list, your message will be sent by the timezone associated with the member's zip code. If you do not have zip code info, rolling timezones will revert to the member’s phone number area code.
Example: You'd like to schedule a flow be sent at 9am Central standard time (CST) and 9am Eastern Standard time (EST). In this case, you’d use the rolling time zone setting.
