So you forgot to send this super important email to your boss, teacher, or other important contact. We've all been through that. Spark makes these panic moments of the past. Send Later allows you to plan the sending of emails at any time, even when you are away from your phone or computer. All you have to do is remember to write the e-mail first.
Spark's planning tool for Android and iPhone is simple and easy to use, but under the hood there is some flexibility in customizability. It's like Boomerang, but for every email service, not just a few. Like other Spark features, Send Later lets you customize the feature to work best for you. So, when you schedule an email in your Outbox, you know what you need to tap to send the email whenever you want. [1
The easiest and quickest way to send later is to use the default options Spark provides. When you're done writing an e-mail, touch the paper airplane with the clock at the bottom of the display. When you do, Spark informs you that this is Send Later.
Tap "Understood" and you will be greeted with four options: "Later today" (3+ hours after the current time), "Tonight" (8:00 PM), "Morning" (9:00 AM) Clock) and "select date". Select one of the first three options, and the Submit Later window disappears. The paper airplane is now blue, indicating that your email should be removed from the Outbox at this time.
However, select "Select Date" and you will see the date and time of sending the email. On iOS, on the left side of the slide, you must select a date and then hour, minute, and time of day. Tap "Apply" when you're done. On Android, first select a date from the on-screen calendar, and then tap OK. Next, use the big hand to select one hour and then one minute with the small hand. Finally tap on "AM" or "PM" and then on "OK".
To cancel or change the tap, tap the Send Later button again. To cancel on iOS, tap the (X) next to your scheduled time at the top of the pop-up. Tap one of the four following time options to change the time. To cancel on Android, tap the red X next to your scheduled time. To change the time, tap Change Time and select a new time from the options. You can also cancel the process from this screen by tapping the same red X next to your scheduled time.
If you want to send "Later today" to send later, or if you want to send "Tomorrow" earlier, you're in luck with Spark You can even add additional scheduling options and remove the current presets from your list of options, if you wish, as we will explain below.
If you're using Android, the easiest way to do this is to just tap On the Paper plane, choose Send Later and then the Customize button in the top right corner of the pop-up window on both platforms, by tapping the Hamburger menu icon, and then tap Settings -> Schedule -> Send Later
Here you can see all planning options You can choose from: "Later today", "Tonight", "Morning", "Morning Eve", "Weekend", "Next week", "In a month" and "Select date." You can When creating an email, tap the boxes next to each field to show or hide the option in the Send Later menu.
Tap the option to set the time for which your email is scheduled. Later Today must be set by the number of hours by which the air time is to be delayed. For "Tonight," "Morning," "Morning Evening," and "In One Month," hour, minute, and time are required, and "Weekend" and "Next Week" are day, hour, minute, and time of day.
You can select all or none of these options. If you disable all options, the Send Later button will disappear when creating emails.
According to Spark, emails you plan to send later will be stored encrypted on Spark's servers. Your devices will be installed with Spark and it will ensures that the email is always sent on time, regardless of whether the app is running or not.
If you've scheduled emails and removed Spark from all devices, "Submit Later" will stop working.
Also, Send Later will only work for up to 6 months in the future. So you can not schedule emails for 7 months shipping, or a year, or whatever, from now on. For most, 6 months are probably plentiful.
