Create Email Automation
You can set up emails to send automatically when a trigger event occurs. Here is a list of the trigger events and what generates them to send. Simply create a campaign name, choose the trigger event and corresponding email, and select your target group. You can add multiple emails to the CC list, just remember to set them apart by using commas. Email automation is great for those who want to send receipts for processed payments, alert customers when a payment is scheduled to occur, or if you simply want to say thank you for signing up.
Automation emails are sent when certain events (triggers) occur. To use this feature, you'll first need to have created or selected an email template.
