Hey guys how can I trigger an email to go out on a Sunday for trash collection on Monday?

This may seem a bit complicated, but it's really more tedious than anything. Unfortunately, at this point you can't say "send this on Sunday if there's a renter."

Write your email.
First Trigger:
At a Scheduled Time - 1 Day After Booking Has Arrived
In "Booking Fields" - Apply Trigger Where > Arrival Day of Week is > Equal To > Saturday

That means your email will go out on Sunday to anyone who's check in on a Saturday.

Then you set up a whole new trigger where it goes out 2 days after booking has arrived, and make the Arrival Day of Week Friday.

Does that make sense?

I warned you - tedious! Hahahaaa! (Hopefully someone way smarter than I will have a better suggestion.)

Thank you!.... And I hate you.
Ok so I have to write 6 emails with different triggers to go out depending on when that person started a reservation so that a email goes out and asks them to put out the trash

Lord help me... This has not been a fun onboarding.

Thanks Lydia

That's my workaround. Hoping someone has a MUCH EASIER route.

Are we having fun yet?!?!?
