How to Set up Timed Delivery?

Timed Delivery is a Text Integration feature that allows you to control the time that your text message is delivered to any country destination, even if your campaign sends the same text message to different time zones.

In the HTTP post snippet, complete the Name / Value pairs column. First row will contain Contact and the Contact ID.

Add another value pair by clicking the + sign.



Type in the word “message” on the second row and the exact message on the second box. To add the contact name on the message, on the Merge fields, just click on contact fields (most common) and select which name do you want to insert on the text. Take note that one text message can only contain 140 characters including spaces and punctuations.



On the 3rd row, put either Phone1 or Phone2. To add the Phone1, on the Merge fields, just click on contact fields (most common) and select Phone 1. In the contact record, make sure that the number saved in the corresponding phone field is a mobile number.

 If you want to add the Phone2 instead, on the Merge fields, just click on contact fields (additional), scroll down and select Phone 2. Note that the number saved under your contact record's Phone 2 field must be a mobile number. 

Put the Country on the 4th row and select the value pairs on the merge field by clicking on contact billing address. The country is the billing Country of the customer.

Put the Time on the 5th row and type the time that you would like for the customer to receive the message. 

To ensure proper delivery of your text message, it is imperative that the Country field is properly filled out in your client's contact record. However, for accuracy in time delivery, especially in Countries where there are multiple time zones, it is encouraged to have the Postal Code and/or City  field(s) properly filled out.

For additional information on how these fields affect the delivery of text messages, refer to this article.
