Send one-off emails at specific trigger points across your automation. For instance, if a subscriber makes a purchase you might want to send them a simple email to thank them.

One-off emails can be sent through Workflows, Rules, and Bulk Operations.

When you create a one-off email, it is excluded to the automation feature in which it was set up. Meaning, that if a one-off email is set up in a workflow, that is the only place you can access it. This is also true for one-off emails in Rules and Bulk Operations.

Learn how to set up one-off emails in:

 

Workflows

To set up one-off emails in your workflow, click the “+” icon wherever you would like to place the email:

In Rules, you can send your one-off emails under the rule’s action step.
