When you want to set up a campaign in Infusionsoft, you have four choices of timers to work with:

Infusionsoft timers for automated email sequences“Start” = Begins immediately

“Delay Timer” = sets delays, such as send after 3 days on a weekday at 8am or send after 5 days, any day of the week, at 10am

“Date Timer” = sets a specific date and time

“Field Timer” = sets an email to launch relative to a special date field, such as a birth date field or anniversary date field (not time).

 

A sequence in a campaign cannot use different timers in the same sequence, excepting “Start”. For example, a sequence will contain:

  • Start + Delay Timer, or
  • Start + Date Timer, or
  • Start + Field Timer

But what if you want a campaign to start on a specific date but then go every 3 days thereafter? Infusionsoft makes this easy to do. Simply create two sequences. The first sequence will contain Start + Date Timers and the second sequence will contact Start + Delay Timers. The following screenshots display this setup.

Sequences give you creative license to build out campaigns custom to your needs. For more information on using sequences, read Infusionsoft’s guide to sequences.

Cheers!
