Update: Use your account’s time zone in automations
It’s now possible to send email campaigns based on your account’s time zone. You can create “Wait until…” conditions so that email campaigns send to all contacts in the automation at the same time regardless of their individual time zones.
This is especially useful for events such as webinars. For instance, you can send messages such as, “The webinar starts in an hour,” to remind people your webinar will be starting soon.
“Add contact to automation” zap now available
We released a new Zapier action that adds a contact into an automation (just like a manual entry from within ActiveCampaign). This means there is no need to find some other way to trigger an automation to begin.
This zap could be used to:
- Start a new customer automation when an order comes in from Shopify or Woocommerce
- After someone signs up for an Eventbrite event, begin an automation that delivers info and follows-up after the event
- Trigger a new lead automation when a form is submitted on an Unbounce landing page
