    I like to send people to my forms ( wufoo ) and use a hidden SOURCE field and I add the DATE...

    now that I am using sendy, I have lost the ability to do that...

    how about adding [[DATE]] and [[TIMESTAMP]]

    OR

    how about a more generic solution like this

    1) create a USER DEFINED CUSTOM VARIABLES page ( plain text or add your own PHP )

    2) your create campaign page can cycle thru them to remind people of what they have made

    @matt Do you know you can create custom fields and use it as input fields for your forms? Custom fields can be TEXT or DATE based.

    Yeah... that can work and I will more than likely use that for the time being...

    BUT

    I have to do it for each 'campaign'... I actually have a lot more to send than my current limit will allow so I keep 'duplicating' my campaign and I would need to remember to update that... and I send the same email at different times of the year as reminders to quite a large group ...

    SO

    the datestamp / time would help to track when people are doing what they are supposed to do... without me remembering that...

    keep at it ... you are doing great...

    Thanks @matt

    That sounds like you could use the new Autoresponders.

    Create a date based custom field, then create a date based autoresponder to send emails to each individual subscriber when the date arrives or nears (you can set this down to the minute).

    And by the way, if you want to send more than you currently have, request for extended access http://aws.amazon.com/ses/extendedaccessrequest
