How does the "When any tag is added" trigger work

The list of available types of triggers can seem challenging when you start designing your own automation workflow. The first step that you must take is to select one, but you don't need to trouble yourself, since each one is aptly named. For example, the "When any tag is added" trigger reacts by setting your automation in motion when you choose to add a tag to the members of your email list. By applying this particular trigger, you can take advantage of the organization it offers to your email lists.



There are two parameters required in order to set this type of trigger:

1. First, you should define the name of the email list, to which when any tag is added, your automation will get triggered. You can find the available email lists on the drop-down menu; keep in mind that only tags to this specific list will trigger the workflow - the rest will be ignored.when_any_tag_added_trigger_1.png


2. The second parameter for you to complete is to choose whether the automation will be triggered for every addition of a tag, or whether it will be triggered only on the first tag addition.

After you are done, click on the Save button to have your trigger ready and waiting inside your workflow.


This is the starting point for creating an automation workflow that will be triggered whenever a tag is added to the members of a specific list. Learning how the available Conditional / Control steps and the available Actions work, will help you finalize your design.
