How it works

Open-based conditions let you contact more engaged prospects. Set up campaigns with an open-based condition and send more personalized messages to those who opened your emails.

There are 2 open-based conditions to choose from:

  1. If a prospect has opened an email more than X times — specify how many times (X) you want a prospect to open your email for a condition to be met.
    X stands for the number and it can be changed.
  2. If a prospect has opened an email —it’s enough that a prospect opened your email at least once for a condition to be met.
