Question

How do I delay email sending when you transfer a list of emails to a Zap?

Hello!

 

I have created a zap with the following: 

  1. Trigger - New Spreadsheet Row
  2. Delay Step 
  3. Send Email
  4. Lookup spreadsheet row
  5. Update spreadsheet row

Then, I transfer existing data to the zap. When that happens, the delay happens for the entire set of data (ie. I transferred 50 rows of emails) and it delays all 50 emails for 2 minutes all at once and then sends all 50 emails all at once. 

I was trying to send the 50 emails with 1-2 minutes of delay in between each.

Am I missing a step or have created an error? Or is this an expected behavior?

Hi @luudybug 

Good question.

Try adding a Delay After Queue step.
