Transactional Mailings Schedule Options with iMIS SQL Views

There are two scheduling options for iMIS transactional mailings from the SQL view. The first option is to send a single transactional mailing from a SQL view. The second option is to set up a recurring mailing from a SQL view.

Send Once

When you send a one-time transactional mailing, it will draw data from the exact time and date of the SQL view's creation (it does not sync). To send a one-time transactional mailing, navigate to the Mailing Scheduling/Publishing Options page.

Click the Send Once radio button.

Select the Date and Time with the corresponding dropdown lists.

Note that if the SQL view has changed after the selected date and time, the mailing will not reflect these changes (this is by design - the mailing is looking to match the original criteria of that view).

Send Daily or Weekly/Send Monthly

When you send a recurring transactional mailing, data will sync at the time it is sent. The data is always dynamic in this way - it will use the SQL target group captured in the view at the date and time that the mailing was sent. To send a recurring transactional mailing, navigate to the Mailing Scheduling/Publishing Options page.

Click either the Send Daily or Weekly or the Send Monthly radio button.

Select the Date and Time with the corresponding checkboxes and dropdown lists. If desired, set an End Date.
