The purpose of this article is to provide direction to Outreach Users in creating and editing a sequence schedule.
Sequence Schedules are a series of time blocks set up on various days of the week, including weekends, that reflect the time frames when emails should be delivered from a sequence, and when tasks can be created. Sequence schedules ensure that mailings are not sent at times of the day when recipients are not near their inboxes.
For more information on how a sequence schedule works, refer to the Sequence Schedule Overview article.
