How does the "When a specific 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 a specific tag is added" trigger reacts by setting your automation in motion when you choose to add a particular tag to the members of your email list. By applying this trigger, you can internally organize your email lists and utilize it as best as you can.


To set up this trigger, you will need to define the following parameters:

1. First, you should define the name of the email list, to which when a specific tag is added, your automation will get triggered. You can find the available email lists on the drop-down menu; keep in mind that this is the only email list for which the automation will check if a specific tag is added.when_specific_tag_added_trigger_1.png


2. Then you have to fill in the specific tag value that you have selected to set your automation in motion. Please note that only this tag will trigger the workflow - the rest will be ignored. 


3. The third parameter for you to complete is to choose whether the automation will be triggered for every change of the specific tag, or whether it will be triggered only on the first tag change.

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 specific 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.
