You can change it in the campaign edit mode at any time. Just click on the gear icon in the top right corner of the page and adjust the number of prospects enrolled daily to your needs.

Remember that purchasing a higher Daily Limit add-on won’t automatically change the values in your campaign. Those need to be updated manually.

Your top limit will depend on the purchased Daily Sending Limit add-on. It can be either maximum of 50, 200, or 5500 (with Unlimited option) prospects. Learn more about purchasing add-ons here »
