By default, a 3-steps campaign is automatically set up, which comprises:

  • S1: Initial invitation, which is a survey invitation email.
  • S2: Timer 1, set to be a 1-day delay before the next step.
  • S3: Reminder email, a survey reminder set to be sent to all contacts yet to complete the linked survey.
Edit campaign

You can add more steps by adding emails or timers into the sequence, or rearrange the campaign by moving or deleting any steps.

Edit campaign

For each email added to the campaign, you can adjust the following settings:

  • Specify the subject line.
  • Edit the email text. You can include formatting, tables, or images. Add placeholders for variables and custom fields you used when adding contacts, like [Survey Link],[First Name], [Country], [Industry], etc.
  • Set up conditional logic for emails to be sent if certain conditions are met. For instance, when the previous message has been or has not been sent, or the respondent has completed or is yet to complete the survey.

By adding a timer, you can specify the time delay in the number of hours, days, or weeks before the next step.
