Campaigns: Wait Elements to exclude certain days.

DANIEL EDWARDS

Hi Team!

We need to have Wait Elements in Campaigns hold a Contact for a certain number of days, but also with the option to exclude certain days when they are to be passed onward. 

Example: I would like to have a Contact who arrives at the Wait to be held there for 5 days, but if after 5 days it is a weekend day, I'd like the Contact to be held there until the following Monday. 

I hope this makes sense! We created a pretty haggard Campaign to hack around this (wait one day, wait until it's m/t/w/th/f, wait one day, wait until it's m/t/w/th/f, wait one day, wait until it's m/t/w/th/f, wait one day, wait until it's m/t/w/th/f, wait one day, wait until it's m/t/w/th/f) but a Feature offering this ability would be much more elegant. 

Thanks!

This should work ... a Wait that waits one day leading to a Wait that is set to wait until Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. 

If the Contact lands on the first Wait on Sunday, they will pass through on Monday. They will then flow through the second Wait immediately. If the Contact lands on the first Wait on Friday, they will flow through to the second Wait on Saturday and wait until Monday.
