New Feature: Schedule Mass Emails

It’s only been two weeks since GMass’s launch, and we’ve already launched our first new feature — Scheduling. You can now schedule a mass email in Gmail to be sent at a future time.

Access the Scheduling settings by clicking the GMass “arrow” to open the GMass Settings box when you’re composing a mass email.

You can choose from a list of pre-configured future times, or you can enter a custom date/time as well. All times are in the local timezone of your computer. After you have selected a date/time, click the main GMass button as normal to schedule your email. At the scheduled time, your emails will be sent.

If, after scheduling an email, you want to alter the date/time or want to just send it now, find the email in your Drafts folder. All scheduled GMass campaigns will also have the label “GMass Scheduled” applied to the Draft. From there, click the GMass settings “arrow” again, and adjust the date/time or choose now, and afterwards, click the main GMass button again. You may also adjust the other settings, such as Open Tracking, or sending as new messages versus replies.

After the mass email has been sent, the original draft with the label “GMass Scheduled” will be deleted from your account.

    Hi. I am fascinated by this GMass extension for Gmail. Infact I have been using it for my email communications as well. I liked the integration with Google sheets which helps me when I save my consolidated contact sheets in Google. However, I noticed that the schedule functionality doesn't seem to work fine. I believe I have not entered the time in the right format. Can you please confirm what is the time format that should be entered for custom date and time?

    I'm glad to hear that you like GMass!

    When scheduling, you can choose "Custom Date/Time", and then modify the default date/time that shows up. That way you don't need to worry about the format. Just modify it in the format that is given.

    Just for your information, the format should be:

    10/29/2015 10:30pm -05:00

    That means October 29 at 10:30 PM at 5 hours offset from GMT.

    Im from India. Now if current time is 6.20pm and i want to send mail at 7pm then the format should be
    12/23/2015 6:20pm -5:30
    Am i right? If not please correct me.

    I believe I answered this over email, but there is a bug that prevents positive time offsets from being used. For India it should be "+05:30", but that will cause an error. For now, the workaround is to use "-00:00" and then set the time in GMT time. So whatever time in India you want to use, subtract 5.5 hours from that time and use that and then put "-00:00" at the end of it.

    Dear Sirs,
    I live inside -6 time zone but GMass Schedule Custom Date/Time feature says that it is -5 (06/06/2016 06:44pm -05:00). Why this happens? Is it right? Should I change it manually)?
    Thanks in advance.

    I’m interested in being able to schedule emails based on a certain date e.g.
    send birthday email on 23 june 2017
    anniversary email on 4july2017 etc.

    The emails and dates and event would be loaded in a spreadsheet.

    thank you for considering my idea,
    Dennis

    Hello Ajay,

    If I schedule the email with custom date and time so can it be repeated daily on the same scheduled time or will be deleted the draft after sending once. If i want to schedule time with daily repeat email on the same time is it possibe?

    Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but
    I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience
    so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!19947
