Emails can be scheduled up to 90 days in the future using the Send Later button on the email Preview screen.
When you preview an email that was created in Jackrabbit, you have the option to send the email immediately or schedule the email to be sent at a later date/time.
An email scheduled to be sent on a future date will only include recipients that matched your selection criteria at the time you created the email. It is not updated, prior to being sent, to include any students who enrolled after you created the email, nor will it exclude any students who may have dropped since that date.
