I noticed that after cron is setup, the 'send now' actually becomes 'send when the next cron job is running', which can be 5 min from now. This will generate confusion from my clients, as they have no idea when their emails will be sent, and why the "preparing" takes so long.
Is there way to really send now? Or at least tell the user when exactly the mail will be sent?
When you send a campaign, Sendy waits for the cron job to kick in. So if you send your campaign at, let's say, 11:52am, it'll send at 11:55am as the cron job runs every 5 minutes. Within these 3 minutes, the campaign will be in "Preparing" mode.
If you don't want this, the only way is to not use a cron job.
