Workflow Automation

    Workflow Automation is a series of actions that are triggered by a contact’s behaviour.

    Some pre-built workflows are available that can be used to move contacts from one list to another, send out a series of emails as users join a list or even entice a website visitor to make a purchase after they’ve abandoned a shopping cart.

    Elements to build an automation workflow are

    Triggers – User-based actions that start your workflow
    Filters 
    – Filters allow altering of customers based on a specific condition.
    Actions 
    – The active components, that perform an action such as sending an email, add delay, or change list membership.

    2. List Membership Change – When contact is added to or removed from specified list.
