Campaign Calendar - Online Help | Zoho Campaigns

Campaign Calendar

The calendar is a space where you can set reminders, and create draft campaigns for upcoming holidays or events. It already contains all major holidays by country and you can create private holidays for specific dates. You will be notified to create campaigns for the date and time you set. The maximum time limit for setting a reminder or creating a draft campaign for a specific holiday is 15 days prior to the date.

There are two types of holidays in the calendar

  • Country Holidays : Standard country holidays that are already in the calendar by default. You can select up to 10 countries whose holidays will be shown in the calendar.
  • Private Holidays : Create your own holidays on any date. You can set reminders and create draft campaigns for both country and private holidays.

Sharing a Holiday
