  • This method schedules a future broadcast to all members of your TextMark group.
  • To send an immediate broadcast and for more information about broadcasting messages, see the broadcast_message() method of this API package.
  • See scheduled_broadcasts() to list currently scheduled broadcasts.
  • See unschedule_broadcast() to cancel scheduled alerts.
  • Only after the scheduled broadcast is actually sent does it appears like a regular broadcast (and can, e.g. be seen by GroupLeader.messages()).
  • The datetime param specifies the year, month, date, hours, and minutes for when the broadcast should go out. These values are interpreted as being in the time zone specified by tz, and are not UTC values (even though the automatic documentation indicates UTC).
  • The tz param determines how the datetime param is interpreted. It may be any of:
    • TZ_UTC
    • TZ_Pacific
    • TZ_Mountain
    • TZ_Central
    • TZ_Eastern
  • Scheduled delivery makes no guarantees of granularity below 15 minutes. Accurate timing is done on a best effort only.
  • If the time parameters are invalid or in the past, receive error #2010 (ERR_REQUEST_INVALID_PARAMS).


JSON response.head.rescode==0 for success, or error code otherwise.
JSON-P callback: (as 'jsonp' param, optional) (blank for none)
