Create a Subscription (Schedule)

A schedule is a way to receive scheduled updates of a Mission via email at a fixed reporting frequency (for example, 1st Monday of each month). Mission Viewers, Editors, and Owners can create a schedule. It's also a great way to share your Mission.

To create a schedule...

  1. Go to your Mission and select Subscribe > + Create new subscription.

    Subscribe button

  2. Enter a Subscription schedule name or leave the auto-filled name.
  3. Enter a Delivery time. There can only be a single day and time selection for each schedule. If you want to have email updates 2 times a week, set up 2 separate schedules. The default timezone is based on your location.
  4. As the creator, you are automatically subscribed. Search for a name or email address to add other users to the subscription.
  5. Select Create subscription.

Delete or edit a schedule?

Mission Editors and Owners can delete or edit a schedule. Make sure there are no users subscribed to the schedule before you delete it.

To delete a schedule, select Subscribe, then select the trashcan icon.

What are the supported email clients?

Can a schedule be sent on the same day it is created?

Yes, any schedule that is set for the day itself should be set before the time the schedule is created.

This means that if the current time is 3 PM, and the schedule is set for 4 PM,  it will be created. But, if the current time is 5 PM and the schedule is set for 4 PM, the schedule is only triggered the following day at 4 PM.
