How do I schedule a newsletter issue to send to my subscribers?

If you have Newsletter Builder (for corporate customers), go to the Welcome to the Newsletter Builder platform page to learn about creating your newsletters.


Note: NextReads Newsletters will be sent automatically according to the Delivery Schedule.  If your library creates its own newsletter issue, you can schedule it using the following instructions.

To schedule a newsletter issue to send:

  1. Open your newsletter issue in the Editor.
  2. Add the content and make the changes to your newsletter.
  3. When you are ready to send the test email, select the Publish to… drop-down or the Publish menu from the menu bar.
  4. Click the Schedule Email link. This will take you to the Schedule Newsletter Issue page.
  5. To send your newsletter immediately, select the Immediately radio button.
  6. To schedule the newsletter to send at a later date/time, select the In the Future radio button. Enter a date, and select the time that you want the newsletter issue to send. 
  7. Enter the following Email Publication Options:
    • Subject – This text will appear in the email subject line.  By default, “[Newsletter List Name]: [Newsletter Issue Name]” will be listed.
    • Reply To Address - Enter the email address to which you’d like responses to be forwarded. 
    • Friendly From - This will appear in the “From” line in the email. You can use the name of a person at your library, or you can use a department name, e.g., Public Library Support. Your organization name will appear in this field by default.
  8. From the Send To drop-down menu, select which subscribers to which you’d like this newsletter to be sent:
    • All Subscribers: Select this option to send to all subscribers of the newsletter.
    • Subscribers Since…:  Select this option to send the newsletter only to those subscribers that have subscribed since a certain date.  Select the date from the field to the right of the drop-down menu.
  9. As you make your selection, beside the Send To heading you will see a count of the subscribers that will receive the newsletter. 
  10. In the Email Addresses field, enter any additional email addresses you would like to send the newsletter issue to.  Separate multiple email addresses by semi-colon.
  11. Check Email me when delivery is complete if you want to be notified by email when your newsletter issue has been sent from LibraryAware.
  12. Click the Schedule button to schedule the newsletter issue to be sent to all subscribers and additional email addresses specified.
