Switching question

When switching an account they say it takes 7 business days. Does anybody know, if you select a date in advance, say December 20th, would they first contact your old bank 7 business days before the switch is to take place (Dec 11th) or do they contact them immediately and say they are going to start a switch on Dec 11th? Thanks.
