You can think of automation workflows as a series of events that you set up so that they engage your email list based on conditions you specify. When you create an automation workflow, make sure that it is set up correctly before it is launched. Actions are the pieces of your Automation workflow that represent the "what happens" part. You can select them at any point during your workflow, as long as you have first set the automation trigger that sets things in motion.
When you create a workflow, every intersection on your workflow has a + below it to add steps or actions.
The Select action dialog opens with the Actions tab in the left menu.
The available options are:
- Then send email campaign
- Then send a message to slack
- Then ping me
- Then subscribe to a list
- Then unsubscribe from a list
- Then set custom field value
- Then add tags to member
- Then remove tags from member
- Then increase/decrease custom field value
- Then trigger another automation
- Then post a webhook
