Add Time of Day option to send Smart List Subscription

When subscribing to a smart list you have the ability to send daily, weekly, or on the first of each month - but you don't have the ability to specify the time of day the report is sent.  It would be helpful if time of day could be specified so Marketo users, and recipients of the list, can anticipate when to receive the list of leads.

That would be very helpful indeed.

It would, but in a massively multi-tenant system it isn't feasible. Inevitably, everybody would want their SLs computed at the same magic hours (probably early morning and end of day) and this would completely overload resources.  When you think about how easy it is to create slow-computing Smart Lists and imagine the server resources being used while you're watching the hourglass, it has to be the way it is.

Sanford,

completely agree about resource contention - but surely a 'best efforts' window option could be provided.  Perhaps 4 hour slots (e.g. 22:00 - 02:00, 02:00 - 06:00, 06:00 - 10:00, 10:00 - 14:00, 14:00 - 18:00, 18:00 - 22:00)

When you factor in a global user base, that might just about work. 

Cheers
