Email Post Throttling

Email messages on Womplify can be either scheduled for a specific date and time, or they can be defined as an autoresponder message which have no defined schedule, or they can be sent by an automation trigger.

Although autoresponder messages do not have a specific date and time defined, you can set up a throttling schedule which can be used to send emails only at certain times of the day, or days of the week. So for example you could send your autoresponder emails during peak hours, or you could prevent any sending at the weekends.
