Name day Campaigns

The celebration of name days has been a tradition in several Orthodox and Catholic countries; it consists of celebrating a day of the year that is associated with one's given name and the celebration is similar to a birthday.

Thus, you can run a Name day Campaign and send festive messages to your contacts to make them happy on this special occasion.

Name day Campaigns are currently available only for Greek names and they follow the Greek Orthodox calendar

Name information should be written in Greek language (Greek character set)

Important Notes

  • A Name day Campaign sends its festive messages once a day at the scheduled time
    (e.g. if you initially schedule the campaign to run on 10:00 AM, then all daily messages will be sent at 10:00 AM)
  • Name day messages are sent to your entire contact list
  • By default, a Name day Campaign runs for a year (365 days) since launch
  • You can suspend your current Name day Campaign anytime you want

    • Navigate to the report page of your Name day Campaign
    • Click the floating button at the bottom right corner of the page

  • Personalize your message to strengthen the personal nature of the communication
