I want to publish a post without notifying my Patrons

Hi guys, Marco here.

I have a question. I have about 30 video lessons that I want to make available to my Patrons and I want to upload them in one day. Obviously I don’t want them to receive 30 emails in one day!

Is there a way to publish a post without sending a notification email to my Patrons?

Let me know :slight_smile:

Hey @marco.cirillo.music! I checked and no, there isn’t a way to do that at this time. Will note it as a feature request though :slight_smile:

Hi Marco, maybe you could upload them all the same day, but schedule them to be published on different days? This way you do all the work in one day, but your patrons will receive one email every few days, according to how you scheduled them.

It’s been a couple of years. Anyone know if this possible yet? I have about 480 items in my back catalog to post and definitely don’t want to spam my backers with that.

So, I found a solution. Post to only a tier with no backers, then edit the post to include everyone you want. Only the originally assigned patrons get the notification, not the ones added in the edit.

Hi @Bradley_Potts - right now this is the best hack share to post without notifying patrons. Thanks for sharing your workaround for other creators!

So far, it’s been working well. I grabbed a couple of my patrons and ran a test with no issues. Since then I’ve pushed up about 100 posts of my webcomic’s back catalog in three days. I post a page a week, but need to get all the older material posted as well.
