  • Send Birthday Emails at 7am, local time?

    I am located in NZ, GMT+12/13. Most of my members are also.

    My server is located somewhere in the US, GMT-7 (or something).

    Right now (11:32am), it is the 23rd of May. If I run the Scheduled Task manually now, I get the 22nd of May's emails sent again.

    What can I set the Scheduled Task to in order to send the emails earlier than 12:01PM (which seems to be as early as I can do it...otherwise it spits out the birthdays from yesterday).

    Or...is what I am asking impossible without changing the Default Timezone Offset to match my servers (which would confuse a lot of guests who come to NZboards and see that the time is NOT that of NZ)?

    @ what time your users are receiving birthday emails ?

    I think, you can just change the scheduled task to + or - the time, to reach 7 am (your local time)

      12PMish.

      I have a thread that is started at the same time..they are all around 12PM. That seems to be the earliest I can manage to get them sent. Anything earlier, it gives the previous days birthdays.

        Okie. I wonder if you can automatically block sending out emails for small time change.. You might want to disable sending emails for sometime when the time clicks 6:50 am to 7:00 am

        something of that kind might be able to work.
