For a recurring email, like a weekly snapshot email, can Knowtify handle the automated sending of a particular email for users? For example, every Sunday at 8 am, send "Weekly email X" to Y users. From what I can gather, the only workaround I can think of is to add a send_email Contact-level field, create a behavioral email that's triggered when send_email = 1 (or "true" or whatever truthy value), then somehow decrement the data value to 0. I would need to setup and schedule a Chef recipe or some other recurring trigger to POST an upsert via the Knowtify API with the updated Contact-level information and send_email = 1. Is this assumption relatively in line with the correct workflow pattern? Also, the link here does not appear to load, even after signing in (using Ubuntu 14.04 + Chrome) https://dash.readme.io/project/knowtify/v1.0/docs/incrementing-data-points
