Could Smart List Subscriptions have any gaps or overlaps?

Hi Marketo Nation,


Curious if anyone has looked into whether Smart List Subscriptions can have gaps or overlaps, as there is no timeslot configuration for this feature.


Our use case would be to relay CSVs of leads who order physical mail brochures. What we are aiming to avoid is missing leads who order a brochure, or marking brochure recipients twice.


1. If we set a frequency interval of Daily for instance, would it be possible for us to miss any records between Monday and Tuesday exports?

2. Inversely, would it be possible for the Monday and Tuesday exports to contain duplicate values?

3. If the answer is yes to either or both 1 and 2, what would we do to prevent gaps and overlaps?


Bonus question: how can we set a frequency interval of every 2 days? (I considered setting 3/4 "Weekly" subscriptions that fall on different days of the week, but alas the 7 day week is not divisible such that we can achieve a 2-day cadence.)


Thanks in advance!
