This table shows a report of all your scheduled messages.

  • The “Message” column shows the content of your scheduled message.
  • The “Recipients” column lets you know the number of recipients for your scheduled message.
  • The “Scheduled Date” column specifies the day and time that your scheduled message is set to go out.
  • The “Repeat” column shows you how often your message is set to repeat. If it is not set to repeat, it will say “Don’t Repeat.”
  • The “Edit” column allows you to modify your scheduled messages as needed. If you click the “edit” icon of a message, you will be taken to the “Send a Message” page from which you will be able to edit any of the details of your schedule message.
  • The “Delete” column allows you to delete any of your scheduled messages. Click the “delete” icon on any message’s row to delete that row.
