Hi all, first post so be nice.

I want to automate the sending of birthday and work anniversary emails to staff members, and for the email to be sent at a time appropriate for the person depending on their location (eg 9am).

The emailing sending part is relatively easy (Campaign Monitor transactional email), however, i’m stuggling to figure out how to trigger the zap to sent the email at a decent time.

I’ve had an idea to have a zap to load all the anniversaries / birthdays into a calendar, then set another zap to trigger at the time of the event to fire out the email.

Does this sound bonkers? Are there other avenues I should be exploring?

Hi Troy, thanks for the feedback.

It sounds like a GCAL zap might be easier than building a zap to handle the whole email scheduling.

Try using the GCal Event Start trigger then maybe add a Delay step before sending the email.
