The time delay puts an incremental delay on the delivery of an interactive message and is ONLY available on INTERACTIVE messages. For example, you may wish to send a message one day after someone opts in. If this is the case, simply add a 1 day delay to your interactive message.

Step 1.

Check mark the box to activate Time Delay within the Advanced Message Options menu.

Step 2.

Select a Delay Increment.

Step 3.

Select a Delay Amount.

Step 4.

OPTIONAL - Use the Smart Filter drop down menu to select additional delivery parameters.

NoteThe Smart Filter is there to help prevent your system from sending messages at an unreasonable time of day. When selecting a smart filter, consider how your chosen delay increment and delay amount will deliver messages to early and late opt-ins.
