I would like to set up the new automated messaging system. My current system is generating messages on SAME REQUEST. What do I need to do in order to change it over the SEPARATE REQUEST?

Thank you,

What you’ll do is go to your site’s Tools page (in the admin menus on the left side of your screen) and then click on Site Health. Then you’ll look for an entry that says Scheduled events are running. It may appear after clicking the Passed tests button.

If you do not see the confirmation above in the list of entries, then contact your WordPress host and ask them to confirm that your website has WP-Cron enabled. WP-Cron is a service that runs based on activity on your website, such as visitors browsing your webpages.

The Automated Upcoming Event Notifications add-on uses this service to trigger event reminder emails.

If it says Scheduled events are running, then you’ll go to Event Espresso > Messages > Settings and switch the setting there to “Send Messages on a Separate Request”.
