Once the initial email is done and the reminder email has been created, the reminder emails can be sent to the recipient list.
You may send more than one set of reminder emails. After the initial round of reminders emails have been sent out, just follow the same steps outlined below to send additional reminders to recipients in the list who have not completed the survey.
To send the reminder emails, click on the project in the campaign manager screen and select "Launch Reminders."
Tip: If the "Launch Reminders" action is out of date, Open the reminder email and click "Send Test Email."
1.1: Review the Campaign Information
A new window will appear with the campaign name and recipient list, including the number of recipients in the list. Review this information before proceeding with the send.

1.5: Send Reminders
If all looks correct, click "Send Reminders" to initiate the email send.
Reminder emails are sent to the seed list immediately and a soft send will go out after 20 minutes , if the reminder has not been scheduled for a specific time and date. The status will display the countdown. This allows the user to change the email address. The reminder email send can only be canceled on the 20 minute countdown, while the send is being prepared. Once the 20 minutes are up the reminder email send can not be canceled.
The soft send wants to go out to the first 10,000 recipients of the reminder email campaign. If the entire reminder email campaign contains 10,000 recipients or less, then the entire recipient list will be emailed in the soft send.
The rest of the reminder email send (ie, full send) will go out 12 hours after the soft send . The status is displayed in the status column of the email campaign.
