This happens: Choose the event that should trigger this automation rule
Someone: Choose the person that should receive the notification for this automation rule
Reminder: Choose the type of notification that you want to send for this automation rule
Within a defined time: Choose when this notification should be sent
Field: Choose when this notification should be sent
(Optional) Add condition: Create a condition to define the exact scenario requirements that should be applied to this automation rule (e.g., only if source = Google, only if client tag ≠ loyal customer, etc.)
Delivery window: Define when this rule should be triggered (e.g., 9–5 p.m., 24/7, etc.)
Select Add automation
Monitoring automation activity
Once you save your automation rule it will be listed under the My Automations tab at the top of the screen.
You can turn an automation off to prevent it from sending out notifications by turning the corresponding toggle switch to OFF (gray).
This tab will also allow you to see how many times your automation rule has been triggered.
