Essentially, I'm trying to get the send date and time for when a previous email was sent to include in a new email - for a journey.

I know %%=GetSendTime()=%% can get it for that email, but is there a way with the email ID of another email to get when that was sent to the individual subscriber?


You would have to do a Lookup or LookupRows to a data extension where that email ID and send time is stored. Possibly a SendLog if had that set up.

Alternatively, you can also set up an automation to query the _Sent data view to write to a data extension so that you can retrieve using the above lookup methods.

GetSendTime and Now(1) only applies to the current send and not the send of a different email job.
