Start automation on specific date

How do I start an automation on a specific date independent of an conditions like subscriber date etc.?

Thanks!

Hi,

You’d use the Bulk Editor to set a date field on many contacts at once.

First, create the field from Manage Fields.

Then, do a search for the contacts using Advanced Search. When you have the contacts you want, click Edit to open the Bulk Editor and then Update Field to set the field.

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Here to help.

Hi Brian,

Can you please explain this in detail? I am having a hard time figuring this out because prior to using ActiveCampaign I was using Date Triggers to simply select a date for one or multiple lists to start an automation followed by a Delay and then the If/Else condition actions and so on.

Do we have something similar here?

ps - benchmark email delivery rate is extremely poor and automation is full of bugs, so i quit using it.
