Continuing our previous posts, where we looked at Campaign planning, segmentation, deliveries.
In this post, we’d look at Flow Control tab and various steps in it, for running the campaign.
- We can use the Start step inside the Flow Control tab, to specify the starting point within the workflow.
- We can use the End step which cleans up the temporary data and free up resources.
- We can use the Fork step to have the same result of the query flowing to a different path
- We can use the scheduler step for specifying the schedule on which the campaign should run. Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Once or several times a day.
- We can also define a recurring schedule along with any specific future date for the campaign to run on.
- We can use the Test step to evaluate a condition and define the flow accordingly based on the result either true or false.
- We can use the Wait step for specifying wait duration (seconds, minutes, hours, days)
- We can use the Time constraint step, through which we can specify start and end time.
- We can use the Sub-workflow step to start a child workflow.
- We can use Jump (start point) and Jump (end point) step, to make it easy to view and design the workflow that could have many steps and complex flows in it.
- We can use the External signal step, as a trigger for an event outside Adobe Campaign.
- We can use the Approval
step for defining the approval step, before moving to the next action.
- We can use the Alert step for sending the message to adobe campaign users.
- We can use the Task status step, for assigning the task to the users, as part of the workflow.
- We can use the start button to run the campaign, similarly, we can use pause, stop, restart options in the menu bar for controlling the execution of the workflow
- We can pause a workflow, disable a particular step in the workflow, and can also check the interim result
- We can use the Journal tab to get all the details of the workflow execution.
- We can also check logs of any individual step. Right click and select Display Logs in the menu.
- The Dashboard for the campaign will show the status and the delivery information for the Campaign once we run the campaign.
