Email notification X days from sign-up to update person & encourage them to keep going

It would be extremely helpful if you would add a new type of email notification that works like this:


1. It is conditional in that it only happens if the contact hasn't gotten their reward or won the contest (and the contest is still running).

2. You can specify a relative date in days since they originally signed up.

3. You can then send the message while still being able to access all of their stats.


This is how I would use this. Let's say I'm doing a reward giveaway. The person signs up and forwards their link to several friends and 3 sign up with their link. However, they need 5 referrals to get their reward.


I could then send them an email after 5 days or so and say that they have successfully referred 3 people but still need 2 more to earn their wonderful reward. Here's your special link again. You're almost there. Keep going!


I might choose to do a similar email after 8 days as well, so it should be possible to set up multiple of these kinds of notifications.


I suspect that people do their initial referral emails and then forget about it or get upset if they send 5 emails but don't get their reward because not all 5 signed up. This way I can keep them updated and encourage them to refer more people so that they will successfully get their reward. The same could true with a contest.

I was just thinking that for a time-limited contest, these new notification emails may need to be specified by absolute dates in addition to relative dates.

In addition it would be great to also be able to send notifications manually from within the dashboard using the same keywords as in the automated ones.
