Overview

Back to top

Product Scheduler is a tool that will help you to schedule your products to be enabled or disabled automatically and also assign or remove them from categories on the given date & time. Our tool adds this feature to your website and provides you with the ability to schedule the products as per your requirement.

 

Features

  • Schedule the products individually or collectively as needed.
  • Enable/disable the products automatically on the given date and time.
  • Assign/remove the products to/from categories on the given date and time.
  • Maintains the complete history of products that were scheduled.
  • Provides ability to enable/disable products after schedule expires.
  • It also supports products to be scheduled from:
    • CSV
    • APIs
    • Any custom script to update the product

 

Specifications

The product scheduler includes:

  • Start Date Time 
    • The date & time at which the scheduler will start on the product.
    • The time that is specified should be in 12-hour format.
  • End Date Time 
    • The date & time at which the scheduler will start on the product.
    • The time that is specified should be in 12-hour format.
  • Status On Schedule
    • The status to be applied to the product when the schedule starts.
  • Status After Schedule Expired
    • The status to be applied on the product when schedule ends.
  • Category
    • The product is assigned to a specific category when the scheduler starts. Also, It is removed from that category after the schedule is expired.

 

List of benefits

  • It helps you to launch your product at any date and time as per your requirement.
  • It not only allows you to apply a particular set of actions on product being schedule, but it also allows you to set actions after the schedule is expired i.e. enable/disable the product.
  • This extension will add an advantage to your marketing strategies and plannings.
  • It makes pre-scheduling of campaigns much easier and effective, therefore a hybrid marketer doesn’t need to spend the weekend in his office just to make the campaigns live.
  • You can create multiple discount campaigns and promotions ahead of time and schedule them for a time and date in the future.
  • It will enhance the efficiency and productivity of the sales and marketing team.
  • It helps you to refine your planning about upcoming campaigns by reviewing the history of the products that you had scheduled in previous campaigns.
    It will help to make your multiple campaigns live across the world on the same date and time.
  • It will reduce the efforts and time of a resource.
  • It’s easy to use – even for people who are not tech specialists.

 

Use case

Assuming that Christmas season is about to arrive and you want to run campaigns and offer special product deals to your customers on the Christmas day, keeping in mind that your whole staff will be observing Christmas holidays. You can utilize this extension to plan your campaign early and schedule your products with categories to be live right on the Christmas day (i.e. 25th December at 12 am). Similarly you can also specify that these offers should be disabled right after Christmas is over. This is one of the real-life scenarios in which our extension helps you to manage and run your campaigns efficiently at any time. It takes the basic tasks out of the hands of marketers/staff members, especially during the holidays or sales season.

 

Examples

Here are some possible examples in which we can avail this extension:

  1. Schedule multiple campaigns on same date and time: If your marketing teams need to make multiple campaigns live across the world on the same date and time, then it is nearly impossible for a staff member to make all of them live at the same time. Therefore, by scheduling your campaigns through our extension, all of them will be live automatically at the same moment.
  2. Plan your campaigns early: You can create multiple discount campaigns and promotions ahead of time and schedule them for a time and date in the future. For example, you could create an entire month's promotional offers in one day and schedule them to be live throughout the month as per your preference.

 

Comparison with other products

Product Scheduler allows you to schedule the products individually or collectively as per requirement. It enables/disables the products automatically on the given date and time.

Also, it assigns/removes the products to/from categories on the given date and time. It provides an ability to enable/disable products after schedule expires. While the other related products only allow you to enable the product on a given date. Therefore, Product Scheduler helps you to manage your campaigns more efficiently.
