Schedule URL to Open and Close

There are times when you might want to schedule a URL to open or close on a certain date. This could be necessary to tie in with the launch of a certain campaign or the end of an event. Whatever the reason, you can follow the steps below to schedule your Ion URL to open and/or close at a certain day and time.

Before We Begin

Navigate into the URL management screen for the URL that you want to schedule to open or close. If you have not created a URL before, you can learn how to create one by following the instructions in our Create a URL support post.

Let's Get Started

1. Click the Status dropdown menu and select "Schedule..."

2. Use the calendar to select a date and time when you would like the URL to open. You'll see the time option at the bottom of the calendar. Please note that this time reflects your computer's local time. When you're all done, click Next.

3. By default, your URL will stay open forever, as indicated by the "Leave open indefinitely" switch on the auto-close screen. To schedule a close date, flip the switch and select the date and time when you'd like the URL to close.
