How to Trigger an Automation After Edits are Made

When you edit the flow of an active Automation, only edits to existing email content will be received by contacts in real-time. Any other edits will not be seen by Contacts who are already moving through the flow.

To manually re-trigger an Automation, you will create a Segment of existing Contacts, send those Contacts a campaign, and add an Email Campaign Opened trigger to your existing Automation.
