Can I pause my automation or edit its workflow?

Creating custom automations is a simple and fun task, but it's not always possible to foresee all your future needs right from the start. That's why Moosend gives you a completely open-ended editing and pausing facilities for your automations, so that you can sit back and rethink your workflow and edit it accord to your ever-changing needs .

It's important that your automation works exactly like you want it to, and that it reaches the goals that you've set. So take your time to customize it to your needs and add to it as your campaigns progress.

Let's see how this is achieved:

A. Pausing an automation

1. Click on the Automations button, located on the left side of your Dashboard page.

The button should be toggled so that it's coloured gray and INACTIVE, indicating that your automation won't be getting triggered unless you reactivate it.
