Scheduling campaigns allows you to plan ahead and decide when your campaigns start running and when they become inactive. You can modify a schedule at any point.
Schedules are only effective once you activate the campaign.
To create a schedule for a campaign:
- Click Settings > Schedule in the left-side menu of your campaign and set:
- Start time: Date and time when the campaign starts running.
- End time: Date and time when the campaign becomes inactive.
- Click Save schedule.
A notification pops up, indicating that the campaign has been updated.
If the initial state of the campaign was running, it changes to scheduled. If it was a different one, activate the campaign for its state to change to scheduled.
The state of a scheduled campaign will automatically change to running when the start time is reached, and it will change from running to expired when the end time is reached.
If you only set and end time for a campaign that is already running, the state of the campaign remains the same until the end time is reached. The state then changes to expired.
