Scheduling Messages

Top Previous Next

One of the functions of the PageGate Client is to set up a delivery schedule for messages. To do so, you would first select a recipient (or group) and type in your message. BEFORE you click the Send button, click on the Options button.


By clicking on the Options button in the PageGate GUI Client's main screen, you will be given the following prompt:




With this prompt, you can schedule messages to automatically be sent at some point in the future. You can also determine if that message will repeat or not.


To schedule a page to be sent at a future date and time, fill in the 'Send Message When' fields.


To have the scheduled message repeat, fill in the "Resend Messages Every" fields to set the interval at which the message is resent.


Finally, fill in the 'Stop Sending Message' fields to set the date and time for the message to stop being sent.


For example, let's say that you had a message that, starting tomorrow, needed to be sent out once a day for the next month.


You would set the "Send Message When" date to tomorrow's date, set the time for whatever time the message needs to be delivered.


You would then set the "Resend message every" to 1 day OR 24 hours OR 1440 minutes.


The final step would be to set the "Stop Sending Message" date and time to exactly one month from the "Send Message When" Date.


Click on Apply, then click on the Send button. The message is now scheduled!
