Pricing Tiers and Sequence Schedules

Please note, Sequence Schedules are only available for Professional and Custom plans.

Use sequence schedules to control the day and time that messages are sent throughout the week. Customizing your schedule offers the following benefits:

  • Customize your schedule to a contact's local time.
  • Schedule when Apollo sends emails to optimize the possibility of positive contact.
  • Adjust the wait time between steps.

Refer to the sections below for more information about how to create and edit sequence schedules and how to amend the wait time between the steps in a sequence.
