When automating a campaign, you probably don't want your emails to go out on a Saturday or Sunday, so we have added the ability to skip weekends.  To set this up, simply select the Skip Weekends checkbox in the General settings card in your Campaigns tab.

Now you ask - how does that work exactly?

Without skip weekends, your emails are going to be scheduled based on a regular 7-day week like so:

However, with Skip Weekends turned on, you go to a 5 day week, and we do not count the weekends:

This allows you to ensure that you don't have any emails or tasks being scheduled for the weekends and you can follow up in an efficient manner.
